Nice oud but too floral perhaps?
Oud 27 is super skanky at first, like pure, fresh, sharp, cat pee, coupled with really pungent oud. I like it a lot, but at the same time there is a floralcy to it that I'm not sure I jive with. I wish it was just woody and skanky, and not floral. I have seen rose mentioned on other sites (I do not see it above), and rose is definitely what I smell. It smells a little too much like an Arabian fragrance mixed with some kind of old-fashioned rose fragrance, like Tea Rose (sorry folks, I never liked Tea Rose. It smelled like dried garden weeds to me, and too mature). I would need to wear it a few more times to decide whether a full bottle is wanted or not. I think it's an amazing fragrance, even if not to my taste. Like 9/10 amazing, so try it if you are curious.
