A hidden gem or understated masterpiece.
I found this beauty of a perfume when browsing through the Lancome.de website for offers because they have a nice discount currently.

Oud and Rose, I said .. this is typically used combination and I smelled it with Silk Oud from MFK or Santal Royal from Guerlain, I wonder what is different with the Lancome´s OUD Bouquet, by Fabrice Pellegrin.

I honestly can say that the first spray I applied to my skin was telling me about what high quality ingredients they are using, all smells absolutely natural, like pure rose oil which is not 1€ Shop sickly sweet and also not so overwhelming like in the MFKs.

Together with the OUD, which is very wearable, not heavy at all .. it makes a very nice oriental woody type of smell which can be unisex more than Santal Royal which even if I like it, for me it is more lady oriented.

The H/S is just out of this world, after 24h you still feel it on the skin, with one shower included .. on the clothes it smells like freshly applied even after few days.

I did not know about Maison Lancome´s Haute Parfumerie but I am so happy I discovered it, they might have the best selling La vie est belle and lots of make-up, but their top range is also worth checking out.

Smells fucking oud!
First of all: this is all completely new territory for me, I got zero bearing from the whole bang and kladderadatsch.

But what I do know for sure is that this stuff here is lethal! It smells so unbelievably ultra, I could fool myself, rub it in my eyes, spray everything I own with it. I sprayed this stuff yesterday afternoon in the air and swung my forearm through the cloud. I can still smell it now (5 o'clock)... through my sweater!
It reminds me a bit of a sauna. So dry/woody but somehow also warm and sweet. I like it.

Oud is definitely mine (at least what I have smelled so far).

The bottle is (for me) "meh". Sure, it looks quite good, rather plain and minimalistic, but not necessarily exciting either. It's practical that it's angular, so you can put it somewhere in between without having to do a lot of "Feng shui" in your collection.

Ôud Bouquet smells to me like more...more of the same!!

I already know that this is going to be a very expensive hobby...oh dear.

Today I'm alone in the office so I can finally wear it...
... well, what can I say?

The smell... i bought it very quickly, maybe a little hastily and I must confess that I did not think of it myself. On YouTube I look at several Fragrance Influencer (in this case ed Demi Rawling) which almost pushed me to buy it
If you know her and regularly see her, you know that she talks about this perfume non-stop and praises it sooooo high (but you should also note that she has the old form, which according to the comments here is supposed to be 1,000 times better than the new 2016 version) so I'm in Munich in the big Ogegengen (which in my opinion is really super equipped when it comes to fragrances) and have taken a sniff
Sprayed on a card and taken home. On the skin I had him also there much he me at the beginning not really (much too importunate) at home had to believe then again my family in it and all were allowed to sniff. My mother found Oud Bouquet really nice and pleasant although she usually likes fresh masculine scents, the sister is convinced that it is terrible and she would get a headache. My little brother who really has a good nose but is a total loser said, "phew, he's pretty strong and he's kind of old" The dad who generally doesn't have that much of a fragrance is also not a big fan of .

Well well then the family is not really enthusiastic but are we erlich we want to kill nobody with our perfume but he has to please at the end of the day finally only ourselves.
After a good 2 hours I have to say that I like the scent much better and it is also not so obtrusive anymore. On my house the rose is already coming out and is the center of attention, the oud makes room for the vanilla and is the beautiful accompanying melody in the background.
Yes, I must say I like the smell a lot better this way But he does nothing exciting on the test strip.

So two or three days later I go back to the popular Munich department store and after a short tour I end up at Lancome again and of course Oud Bouquet is being tested again.
I am torn between listening to my family who definitely do not support this scent or listen to my gut feeling
Oh come on, what the hell, I listen to my gut feeling and get 100ml (which to my knowledge is also the only size in which the whole series is sold) for a good 180 Euro So he comes home with me and so far I haven't had a chance to wear it, well it's not really made for the office as it takes up all the space and causes some headaches.

Well then, another occasion had to come, with my dear grandmother in the church there I had the grfühl with only 2 sprays not to be too intrusive, but again to expect many we both on, but not in the negative I even got a very nice compliment from a lady. (Know what I wear so she did not want to wear as the dear Demi always tells)
Afterwards I went to the riding stable (I had totally forgotten, otherwise I would not have chosen this perfume), well what the heck can't you change now? And what can I say EVERYONE and I mean really EVERYONE could get the scent right and riding is an outdoor activity...
Well well in the riding hall then finally asked my trainer who wears such a strong perfume here and quite meekly I had to admit that I was the culprit After that I was also allowed to find out that you could see him everywhere although I had left the tack room 10 minutes ago.
Very carefully I apologized for it and in the same breath I dared to ask if he was going to correct the very bad one.

After that all of them said that they would find the scent good but also a little strong.
So then for everyday life also on weekends for daytime it seems not really made .
Into the club I kidnapped him then also times and of a nice young gentleman with whom I had talked outside sths longer gave me finally also a compliment for it, however it can have been naturally also because of the alcohol
Today I finally wear it in the office, but I only dare to do so because I am almost alone here today and therefore (hopefully the only other person sitting a few rooms away) do not disturb A pity, because I find the perfume really not bad and I enjoy wearing it but it lacks the certain suitability for everyday use so the bottle is still quite full and does not look really used
(Please don't be too strict with me this is my very first comment and thanks for reading)

So long, you old-gold one! Hello, you cehapie -watery new one.
The 1st edition (not the one pictured here), discontinued: One of the most discreet and refined oud. A complex bouquet of pralines, chocolate, rose, some exotic fruits, vanilla and a hint of quince which is not listed -maybe only in my nose. with a HUGE sillage and projection. Even unisex, I fell more feminine than masculine. Longevity is stunning, after 16 hours, shower, gym, sleep shower again, it is still on my hand. Insane. The smell, vibe and quality are extremely close to Roja AO - and even a bit pricy, it is more affordable than the $$$ insane Roja prices.
The new edition, also with a different bottle and box is, unfortunately, at half of performances. Also the composition was changed. Great destruction, what can I say?

New version not comparable to the old!
So sad... i have the old version in the opaque metal bottle and it was so extremely reformulated... you can almost cry. NO comparison to the depth of the predecessor. Why are they doing this?! The quality has also deteriorated. The old version is a beast! Extremely strong, extremely durable, monstrous sillage, very strong praline, oud in perfection, very much saffron... I am very sad about the reformulation

Wonderful feel-good fragrance
Christmas is the ideal time for Oud Bouquet, although I actually love heavy oriental scents all year round.
Warm, soft, cuddly with pleasant smoky notes of wood, reminiscent of a beautiful fireplace, vanilla notes reminiscent of Christmas pastries, all these associations this fragrance awakens in me.
I have the picture of a beautiful hut in the woods before my eyes, decorated for Christmas, cuddled with my beloved under a blanket in front of a crackling open fire, and the smell of vanilla croissants is in the air.
I have a special relationship with Oud Bouquet, after an operation, when I was allowed to get up for the first time, a sample of it was my companion, strength donor and distracted me from my dull thoughts and pains.
Fragrances are so much more, they can comfort you, you can underline every mood with the right fragrance, they enhance every outfit.
In the meantime a bottle of Oud Bouquet has found its way to me, in the top note I notice quite clearly honey, this is not listed anywhere, it may well be that I interpret the praline in such a way.
Oud is added within one minute, guaiac resin and a little saffron round off the heart note pleasantly warm and soothing.
I can't really tell the difference between heart and base note in this fragrance, Oud remains present in every phase of the fragrance and is underlined by a warm, sensual vanilla and some rose.
Altogether a very warm, sensual fragrance, which by the way also enchants my husband every time anew.
The shelf life on my skin is about 12-15 hours, which is remarkable because my skin chemistry usually "eats perfume", that is, I really have to apply every fragrance generously, and yet for my environment the fragrance is often barely noticeable after an hour, even with so-called "crackles".
I can't explain why, I've tried it before with a neutral body lotion, it's best to keep every scent in my hair.
Oud Bouquet is one of the few fragrances that I don't have to add within a very short time, so the shelf life of others will probably be excellent.
The bottle matches this wonderful fragrance, in my opinion one of the most beautiful bottles in my collection.
It is always difficult for me to find an answer when asked what my favourite fragrance is, as I cannot choose one, but Oud Bouquet is undoubtedly one of the few fragrances I would not want to do without.

Oud Bouquet by Lancome
This is by far one of the more talked about recent releases from the house of Lancôme. It has had some positive press from a lot of trusted reviewers and I was keen to see, or smell, what the fuss was about.

No Drawbacks
The first thing you're taken by is the filligreed heavy glass bottle. There is no plastic here (I'm looking your way Armani and Aerin) and the heavy magnetic cap clicks into place smoothly every time. The dark amber liquid shows through the golden metal filigree like an expensive liqueur.

Next comes the smell: the most artfully blended vanilla with candied praline and a hint of rose. The oud is an abstract concept here: there is the appearance of a woody darkness but it is not the typical medicinal or strongly-pungent oud. It's a touch. The main concept here, as is illustrated on the other side of the beautiful bottle, is rose praline. This new Oud Bouquet is nothing like the unpleasantness of the old version with the same name.

I see no drawbacks in price, longevity, sillage or appearance. Kudos to Lancome for creating an amazing array of fragrances in the Grands Crus collection.

Sweet and warm. Nice safron-oud-praliné combo with good performance and great sillage. Similar to Shaghaf Oud by Swiss Arabian.

Knockout oud-rose that slays in its sillage and longevity. Sometimes, too much of a good thing.

I've sniffed my fair share of oud/rose/gourmand combos but this one is a treasure - balanced and blended very well.

Golden bottle: to my nose, it's a cross between MFK Satin Mood & Montale Red Oud. Such a beautiful perfume. Sweet, but not gourmand.
