Tamed beast
With this fragrance, I feel that my original comment did not do justice to the character and composition of the perfume. Therefore I have deleted my comment and will write a new one. I'll try a different format and go into the individual scents and their place in the perfume before coming to a conclusion.

Saffron
exisiert, especially in the prelude also quite present. A noble fruit and it smells like it. It makes the fragrance a bit fresh in the entrance. However - as is usually the case with saffron - without it no longer being noble.

Elemi-resin
is homeopathically dosed. Which I find a bit of a shame, because it has such a pithy and special smell. Can make a perfume mysterious. Take you to another world. Here it can be perceived in the top note. But unfortunately very much in the background, so it doesn't determine the character of the fragrance.

Ambrettolide
is a synthetic musk imitation. It is not as pungent as I usually feel musk sometimes when it is dosed so strongly - for example in Tiziana Terzi's Kirke. Instead, it has a metallic touch that plays a major role in determining the character of the perfume. From opening to dry-down. The metallic note, by the way, has a somewhat cooling effect and is more tart than sweet in my perception. This gave me a positive surprise when I applied the fragrance on the beach, because it was the only one in my bag. An Extrait de Parfum on an oud base that fits on the beach and just as well on the sofa in winter. Where do you get that?

Atlas cedar
i can't perceive for the life of me.

Vanilla and patchouli
replace saffron and elemi resin in dry-down. Makes the fragrance softer, earthier, warmer - after about 8 hours I would estimate. This takes a really long time. A very nice finish, even if I like the prelude better.

Lao oud
makes up the character of the fragrance, say 30%-40%. It is very present, but not as present as the ambrettolide. It is the typical beguilingly anal Kurkdjian oud without a musty note. But the ambrettolide keeps the animalism somewhat in check. Only after many hours the oud can break out of the kennel. If you are looking for a MFK-Oud, whose animalik has broken out from the beginning, you should try Cashmere Mood or Velvet Mood!

H+S
In the first hours it is brute, then flattens out naturally. Not a performer for days, but far from reserved.

Conclusion
A great oud scent with metallic notes, which is something new, cools, makes it suitable for summer. I'm not so much a fan of light and summery scents and after my experience I'm convinced of the beach qualities. I currently have the 11ml travel flacon from OUD ExdP and I will definitely get the big flacon as soon as this little treasure is empty. Cheers!

Great saffron/vanilla perfume
I am a bit confused with this perfume. In one hand It is very nice, Well blended, strong but very weareable, bit delicate and very pleasant. It seems to have very good quality ingredients inside... But this is great for being an saffron/vanilla/musk perfume!! One of the bests ive tried...
However It doenst seem really an oud perfume. It is true that It has some oud feeling on It but not more than in oud satin mood or oud silk mood...and as It is called just oud It is possible that someone can expect a more intense oud feeling. The oud here is also not medicinal or fecal, what for me is good but for oud lovers could be something bad. I find It very similar to oud wood by Tom Ford... An oud for people Who dont like oud or have not many experience with it.
The smell is dry, a bit acid/citrusy, sweet and powdery. I feel very good wearing It. The longevity is great but the projection is just moderate. I find It unisex and weareable at any time.

This is a luxurious soft saffron vanilla oud that is clean, and very wearable year round. It's not overpowering but long lasting, over 12 hours... It's very unisex,perfectly suited for day or night.
I highly recommended it to be sampled even if you're not a fan of Oud this one will definitely surprise you ... it is unusual type of smell for average users

Incredibly strong & a perfect 10/10 rating across the boards. This doesn’t happen often. I really try not to toss around 10’s unless I am absolutely certain.
Warm, unisex, very alluring, with exotic woods and spices melded in such a velvety smooth and soft yet massive scent cloud. There is an underlying sweetness which isn’t cloying, coming from a very dry accord of vanilla. Fans of the original Oud Eau de Parfum will find this to be an even more addictive scent. Longevity.....?.....until you shower!

Clean, fresh spicy, warm woody scent w/ a light medicinal touch and plenty of sweet, earthy patchouli. Only marginally thicker than EDP.

A dry vanillic almost powdery (not in a cosmetic sense) oud, with the lightest touch of (unlisted) rose. Oud & vanilla read almost 50/50.

Clean Oud, a bit medicinal. Wonderfully blended with saffron and vanilla. Night time parfume, very seductive and sexy. Favorite MFK OUD.

This is my favourite MFK fragrance. I think it is a very classy Oud fragrance and the pairing with Saffron is fantastic. Awesomely blended!

This opens as a very mild version of Oud Satin Mood but the patchouli in the dry-down reminds me of Prada L'Homme Intense.
