Solid fragrance for your first date
Somebody once described Hypnotic Poison as the perfect scent for an affair-opener, I would say this trophy should actually go to Oud Satin Mood. And not necessarily only for affairs, the message here is not so clear
The previous speakers have already said it: Eccentric experiments or inspiring developments shouldn't be expected here, my mother, who would probably get along great and almost blind with Terra when shopping for a fragrance, found it "beautiful", but also quite boring and not very creative, I think "too round" were her exact words
But so far everybody likes it, without exception, the first criterion of a good date scent, because something more daring undoubtedly seems more charismatic, but can also completely deter spontaneously.
So far nobody could smell big notes, except for the vanilla, around which everything is orchestrated or gives it a direction - deep, not squeaky, probably by the oud, which never gets through here. So maximum came "delicious vanilla", otherwise only mmmmh and oooohh.

But Oud Satin Mood is not a sultry panty dropper or that which is commonly understood as panty dropper. Also rather pleasant-beautiful-cuddly than erotic. And if it's erotic, it's not loud. Not at all shrill.

This pleasantly for itself smelling darkened sweetness does not come along also with slight overdosage with manslaughter silage. Anyway, on my skin the perfume has a pretty close radius, especially after the first half hour.
But with an extremely long shelf life. Just as 3 Weather Taffeta supposedly never lets wind, rain and sun bring it out of its coolness, Oud Satin Mood keeps pub smoke, rain and long nights undamaged It still smells after waking up and gets stuck in the pillows.

It's established itself now: When that smell comes out of my room, somebody in my flat shouts, "You got a date!"

Oud Satin Mood by MFK
Fragrances fro Maison Francis Kurkdjian have been a little hit and miss with me when I have tried them. So when I tried this one initially, my expectations were tempered. Here are my thoughts on camera.

sweet, candy-sweet
My sample is an extrait de parfum.
The perfume opens with a geranium accord, a violet touch and a cinnamon trace. All these wonderful smells are linked together with a red bow soaked in oud. Later, the violet becomes more remarkable and the composition gets a bitter touch. All the sweetness from the opening begins to lose ground and gets a little bit puffy. The fragrance remains very sweet but is now more bearable. A jammy rose makes its presence felt more and more. It is its turn to fill the scene. The composition remains like that for quite a time. It stretches on the skin and conquer it with its sweetness. An endless sweetness that makes you think of childhood, sweets and cotton candy; no worries, no problems, just sugar. This is ‘oud satin mood’ for me.
By the end, when everything starts to get lost, notes of vanilla and amber appear. They give to the composition a creamy, sticky facet, as a candy filling. I wanted to eat it, not smell it.
Projection is good and longevity is above average. It remained an entire day on my skin.
So, if you like oud and you want to smell sweet, sweet, candy-sweet, try it.

Vanilla-centric Oud
At first, I did not like Satin mood at all, preferring the somewhat safe combination of rose and oud in Silk mood. But when I tried it again, it impressed me. The opening is a definite vanilla bomb, only it is not too sweet. The oud is not dark but a little bit dirty which suits the vanilla just fine. I do get some spices and slight resins but absolutely no rose nor violet, which is fine by me. This smells a lot like Zafeer but not as synthetic. Smooth and wearable, the sillage is not as strong as Silk but still gets the job done.

Rose Violet Oud
Another fabric – satin enters MFK’s fabric collection beside silk, cashmere and velvet, one of the most creative fragrance collection featuring oud.
The perfume has an unusual opening for an oud composition: candied violets that will turn a bit powdery and vanilla which, together with oud, is accompanying a bouquet of different roses.
These roses melted in soft vanilla with a powdery violet note have the echo of several other rose/violet perfume: FM’s Lipstick Rose and YSL ‘ Paris.

Satin Mood has on one hand the collection’s DNA but, on the other hand, it’s miles away from Cashmere or Velvet Mood being soft and feminine, a flowery sweet oud with some make up traces giving a comforting feeling. Compared with the rest in spite of the fact that is named Oud Satin Mood oud is not the guest star, the leading role was given to vanilla roses.
As the fragrance evolves in the drydown the roses start to pale in favor of vanilla, benzoin and powdery oud. Francis Kurkdjan succeeded once again a brilliant interpretation of oud in an original manner.
With a very good longevity, more than 8 hours and a beautiful silage that gets a lot of compliments Satin Mood is a must try even if you are not (yet) fan of oud fragrances.
