Very nice scent from the Orient
The bottle alone is a visual highlight. The packaging looks very noble. Wouldn't have suspected a fragrance here for under 30 euros But also the scent knows how to convince.
This one is pleasantly spicy, sweet. Not too much and not too little. A smoky oud note is added in the background. Fits.
The overall fragrance is very pleasant. I wear it on colder days. The durability is outstanding. With me, 12 plus hours. This scent could already be a non-scent.

With kind regards

It´s really black; dark, heavy and oud dream.
Opulent oud has also such an amazing bottle, but this time in black color.
I wonder if creators of these perfumes though about it just like me, or it´s just my fantasy, but this scent is really black. Let me explain.
There are some similarities to blue oud, but the fragnance is also really different. It´s heavy. Very spicy (but not causing headaches), with oud and sweet tones in the background. It reminds me a little bit their collection Oud al Khuloud, but it definitely depends on a nose. Oud al Khuloud is more gourmand and I can feel honey there, which I can´t feel at Opulent Oud.
In the beginning, we can feel some fruity and juicy notes.In a while, they become more sweety and smokey.
Actually, there can be really felt something like a caramel, vanilla or something like that. Elegant, dark, sweet - this is Opulent Oud.
The longer its on my skin, the more I can feel thalese more woody chords, mixed with a beautiful amber in it.
I personally prefer Blue Oud, it´s more soft than this one. Opulent Oud is much more masculine scent, elegant, smoky and mysterious. Good to suit or some more elegant clothes. But both of these scents are beautiful, mysterious and on the other side also very soft, but in very different ways.

Ostentatiously rich and luxurious
As per my "private investigations" (my nose and a couple of arabic web sites) this fragrance notes go as follows:
Top notes: Lime, Saffran, Musk (or Angelica)
Middle notes: Jasmine, White Flowers, Praline, Musk
Base Notes: Woody Notes (Cashmere, Cedar, Sandalwood & Oud in my opinion), Vanilla, Fir Resin, Cedar Resin, Amber, Musk

It's a true oriental perfume, worthy of being used in any Arabian Nights tale and why not in Scheherazade closet itself. Looking at the fragrance notes it's easy to understand why the name "Opulent" has been chosen.
Musk is the dominant note making its appearance from the first whiff till the end of the (long) drydown.
The top is eased up by saffron and florals. The top musk note is light and easy, so probably the effect is produced through the use of a floral note like angelica. It's really with the bottom notes that the perfume reveals itself. We get an heavy load of wood, wood resins, amber as well the earthy and woody musk.
There is no evident borderline between top and bottom. Due to the lighter notes I kind of preffer the opening to the drydown. But don't get me wrong... it's a fantastic drydown.
You must go easy on the trigger as this juice is truly powerful. I may describe it as dark, smoky, woody, smooth, resinous, sweet and spicy.
The performance is quite high but what puzzles me the most is the fact that it really projects between three and four hours depending on the amount of initial sprays.

How opulent will be my ratings?
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Scent Opening:.........9,5 (close to perfection)
Scent Drydown:........9.0 (fantastic)
Longevity:..................9.0 (more than 9 hours in my skin, with 3 sprays)
Sillage:........................9.0 (8~10 feet sillage with 3.5 hours projection)
Uniqueness:..............9.0 (quite unique, although evoquing some other Lattafa scents)
Wearability:...............6.0 (Winter and Fall nights, and not much else)
Versatility:.................8.0 (go easy on the trigger and you will be surprised by its versatility)
Compliments:...........8.0 (more a self pleaser than an attention grabber but catching the attention of all oud lovers)
Quality:......................9.0 (above average quality ingredients)
Presentation:............7.0 (a bit tacky)
Price:..........................10.0 (€15,00 / 100 Ml - a bargain in an islamic shop sale)

Overall rating: 8,50/10.0
between 7 and 8 =above average;
between 8 and 9 = recommended;
bigger than 9 = don't miss it;
Opinion: One of the best exquisite scents of my collection and I like it very much. An oriental gem.
Recommended? Yes, but only if you like the scent of strong smoky woods and musk.
Blind buy worthy? No! Do try it before you buy it.
