Very helpful Review
Liquorice or pure happiness?
Welcome to my first review,
i would like to take right away in advance, I was very excited about this fragrance and could not wait to test it myself! Is probably because I really liked the Oud for Greatness. I'm sure the beautiful design of the bottle also plays a certain role. But that's another story.
About the fragrance:
This starts namely with an admittedly beautiful combination of citrus and ginger. Extremely tangy, fresh, spicy and a slight green note I get at the beginning.
Let's move on to the question, "does this scent smell like licorice or not?". Honestly, I can actually somewhat relate to the licorice vibe. However, that impression lingers at most until the drydown and it's absolutely not a pungent licorice smell either. And for someone like me, who can not stand licorice at all, this is rather a small aftertaste and not annoying.
Later on, the composition becomes much woodier and darker. I mean that I actually smell the oud, which is responsible for the depth. Although Oud for Happiness is also not an oud grenade but I think you can actually perceive the oud. I didn't manage that with the predecessor, for example :D. The vanilla gradually makes itself heard and complements the fragrance with a slight sweetness. Towards the end remains for me a wonderful, woody vanilla musk note over.
Honestly, I don't really need to say much.... I think no one takes it amiss when I say that one of Initio represented a certain performance in almost every fragrance. And so it is the same with this one. Once again, the performance is very good. The fragrance lasts long and also it forms a great scent cloud around you. Tested in the morning, still smelled it in the evening. My fellow men have also confirmed this. So I would assume now times of +/- 12h. (If not even better).
Oud for Happiness is, in my opinion, a thoroughly successful release, which actually reminds me of no other fragrance. In addition, I feel him as clearly unisex. With the OfG was that, at least according to my perception, a bit more into the masculine.
Whether the name now to the fragrance almost everyone must decide for themselves. I like the fragrance and yes, he also makes me happy :D.
I am very curious how the fragrance will beat the masses so and can hardly wait to welcome another of this collection!
