An oud fragrance "assolutamente magnífica"
Fan di Fendi Pour Homme Assoluto, the complex name for a magnificent, classy, and reasonably manly fragrance. It has an excellent value for money.
It opens with a beautiful blast of mild and peaceful oud (oud is always present) and warm spices (red pepper and cardamom). It's very loud and very pleasant, probably one of the best openings in a masculine Oriental cologne. It evolves with a bit of timid patchouli and Vetiver.
The dry-down it's all about the omnipresent peaceful oud flavored by sweet myrrh and Tonka. Actually, the opoponax/myrrh ambery note is stronger than the woody notes.
What a fantastic involving scent! No need for Rose or Saffron to tame the Oud as the Myrrh and Tonka do it with perfection. This is one of the most usable oud fragrances I have ever experienced.
Performance is just acceptable.

My rates for Fan di Fendi Assoluto:
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
- Opening: 9.0 (gorgeous spices and mild oud)
- Dry down: 9.5 (really pleasant amber and mild oud, sweetened by tonka beans)
- Longevity: 7.5 ( 7 hours, 3 initial sprays)
- Sillage: 7.0 (4~5 feet at the peak, projects for 2~2.5 hours)
- Versatility: 7.5 (avoid using it in hot weather; very good for many situations in normal and cold weather provided you hang out with oriental scents lovers; It's far from being cloying like many oriental fragrances, mainly due to its smoothness)
- Wearability: 8.0 (due to its subtleness and smoothness, you may wear it in situations not easy for oud scents. Avoid sweaty situations like the seaside, gym, and so on)
- Compliments: 8.5 (Yes it is a compliment grabber due to its smoothness, mild sweetness, and pleasant woody and spicy accords; It's not a head-turner, but it's very sexy)
- Uniqueness: 9.5 (I do own a lot of oud fragrances and none is similar to this one; It does present a vibe similar to the original YSL M7)
- Quality: 9.0 (smells expensive and classy; excellent sprayer; heavy glass)
- Presentation: 10.0 (gorgeous classy bottle, very nice box)
- Price: 9.0 (€23 for 100 ml + VAT+shipping)
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Average: 8.58/10.00
- between 7 and 8 =above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recomended;
- bigger than 9 = don't miss it;
Excelent fragrance; I do recomend it.
I consider it to be worthy of deserving a place along with many niche offers.
"Auguri per Fendi" and please do continue producing such nice fragrances.

This rocks!
This stuff rocks! Not outright oudy and just enough spice to make you feel nice and warm during the colder temps.

Good life, good projection and will not be confused for a unisex scent.
Oud note and no rose in sight, not a dirty oud and not in your face.

Not niche but not to be taken lightly, it is a well adjusted, well thought out smeller.

Lovely Spicy Surprise
Fan di Fendi pour homme Assoluto

This is a very surprising frag for me, as it wasn't what I anticipated, but blew me away with the quality and lovely scent. The initial spray is very spicy with sharp pink pepper a la the start of Gucci Pour Homme I, with cardamom instead of cedar. However, this opening as a whole is very reminiscent of Opium pour homme, very spicy and warm. While Opium has galangal-pepper, this has cardamom-pepper, but they are definitely spicy-oriental cousins.

The mid notes become apparent slowly, with the vetiver and oud taking center stage. Neither note is overpowering, and in fact perfectly intertwines with the base of opoponax and the cardamom top to make a rich and beautiful, but not overly heavy, scent. The addition of citrus (orange?) and tonka absolute helps to brighten and smooth the final product, imo. This phase lasts for a while, and is a definite wrist-sniffer when nobody's looking.

So, I got a sample of M7 Oud Absolu recently, and found it to be too stuffy, kind of old perfume powdery type. Now, i do not like powdery frags, so maybe thats whats not doing it for me. I'm sure some will have different opinions, as rabid as the M7 fans are, but I feel FdFA is similar in the drydown but far more wearable than M7OA. There are similar notes in both (Oud, Citrus, patchouli), but M7OA is seemingly linear, while FdFA develops into a non powdery version of the former- after a spicy introduction- which I believe works perfectly.

I thought this would be very heavy, but I feel its light for the notes it carries, enough to be worn year round. I must say, however, that I consider myself a light sprayer, rarely if ever going over 3 sprays, and 1-2 for reapply 6+ hours later.

I love it and bought a large bottle after sampling. It's definitely in my top 10, take that for what its worth.

Oud flavored by sweet Myrrh and Tonka. Fantastic! No need of Rose or Saffron to tame the Oud as the Myrrh and Tonka do it perfectly.
