101% romance
To comment on this fragrance - that is truly no easy task. In fact, it's damned difficult. There are so many contradictions on the way to putting thoughts and feelings into words. But I just start ...

It starts with the fact that MFK has a brother of this fragrance on the market - "Oud Satin Mood" - and has thus created a situation of comparison, if not direct competition. I have tested both again and again and my first impression (from 2017) has lasted until today: I like Oud Silk Mood much more, I consider it the stronger scent (in terms of its sillage and durability) and it is for me the more wearable rose scent for men. With these statements, I'm detaching myself from some of the impressions I've heard on the net, and some perfumes obviously have the opposite effect. Not least in the ranking here, if you want to put something on it, Oud Satin Mood is ahead. As I said, I see it a little bit differently.

I think the message is clearer at Oud Silk Mood. Here we have a rose that is clearer, more concise and has a certain depth for me from the very beginning. Depth is not to be confused with heaviness here, it remains a light but intense veil of scent with excellent sillage and excellent durability. The oud does not come to the fore at any time, but it helps to give the rose a clear direction and thus support. So the whole thing is a bit less flowery and lovely, but a bit more powerful (especially at the beginning), louder, more determined. Still light and rosy-sweet, but by far not as soft, lovely, diffusely dreamy and above all not as soapy as Oud Satin Mood. And that makes him for me as a man also the decisive bit more wearable.

More "portable" than man. Yeah-ha, that's the next item. Because by the time we get to the border, the whole thing will be. Oud Silk Mood smells incredibly romantic to me. If romance had a smell, I guess it would be. There's something unisex and intimate about the romance it exudes. I think it's enormously private. So where do you wear it as a man? On the balcony on a balmy summer night. Under a dressing gown. Or maybe just right in bed. For me, definitely not a fragrance for mundane occasions. None for mundane occasions. None for leisure time, most likely one for a romantic candlelight dinner. In short: it demands intimacy. After that moment, when two souls are extremely close, they merge. Even physically. Then, yes, I think you can wear it very well as a man. Then he fully expresses his sensuality, his seduction. It is truly a fragrance of love, of pure romance.

I like the scent of roses so much that I am driven to turn over every stone that promises to make rose wearable as a concise fragrance for men. I tell you, this is a journey like Ulysses must have gone through (if I were to start there now ...). So far, I have identified Lumiere Noire, also from MFK, as the purest and most wearable rose scent possible. Compared to Oud Silk Mood, it works much better in everyday life and is much more versatile. I am far from having reached the end of my journey, but this much can be said: Oud Silk Mood is one of the absolutely most beautiful rose scents I have come across. And it is wearable for men.

Finally, one question remains: does the extract need it or does the perfume do it? Again not easy to answer. I find the extract a bit denser and more beautiful than the eau de parfum. But compared to this tic towards the perfection of the composition, the extract is also considerably more expensive. If it hadn't been for fate's favor, I'd have gotten a pretty good deal that lets me own a bottle of the Extrait - I probably wouldn't have bought it and settled for the EdP. But I can say that the Extrait turns the extremely beautiful rose of the EdP into a perfect rose, the likes of which I have never seen before. Meaning: despite the high price, a 10 out of 10 for this fragrance. For this breathtakingly beautiful, sensual, romantic rose.

Rose-oud
Oud silk mood is the second oud perfume by MFK that i can try. The first was oud satin mood and i found that one very nice. But this one is not really mu cup of tea. And not because of the quality, only because i orefer the sweet and almost gourmand rose/oud than the greener and drier rose oud combis like this one. The oredominant note here for me is the rose, but is not a powdery rose, i find a bit harsher than usual. Slowly appears the oud giving a soft medicinal vibe, but a very soft and subtle oud, not fecal or intense. And the papyrua and the camomille give to the fragance a herbal, dry and a bit creamy character. The dry down is more powdery. OSM remember me to shades wood by ARMAf or to rose oud by monotheme.
The performance is good, It has a very good longevity and a moderated sillage. It is unisex for me and probably better for night because of the intensity of the rose, although i think It could be weareable during the day on winter or fall.

Silky soft bouquet of roses
When testing and commenting, people often think about how many versions of a Rose Oud combo should be discussed. In principle, I'm done with the topic for this season, but I still want to offer this Extrait de Parfum a small deserved stage.

At the same time, the scent at the beginning makes it anything but easy. The rose presses itself quite squeaky and kitschy on the nose and brings the sweetish note of a multi-vitamin candy. Some of you will surely have flinched and put the bottle back on the shelf, shaking your head. No trace of Oud for now.

Even later, the eagle wood that gives the rose its name is anything but dominant, but the rose becomes much softer, rounder and generally more pleasant. Yes, there's also something dark shining through from behind, which is similar to oud and marginally medical. I think the papyrus note makes the fragrance even more woody, rich and mysterious.

The projection as well as durability are also generous and keep the wearer's olfactory organ plus the surroundings on the go for a long time without appearing overexcited.
Especially in the late phase, Oud Silk Mood develops a finely woven, more mature and exclusive character despite its linear nature, making it the ideal cultivated fragrance with a timidly conventional character for cool evenings.

Something else is certainly original, but this rose variant is for all those who have difficulty with oud, but who expect a little dark, profound without much experimentation.

Headache Rose
Rose, Rose, Headache, Rose... some oud and smokyy soap.

What a waste of money. Sad I didnt try the other two. The original is way better and has a harmonic attitude. This stuff is so strong and heavy, everywhere you go you will offend others.

I guess some older arrogant ladies with a hardcore powder rose addiction will buy this. For me a no go and a bit hard to my nose and head.
This scent is good if you want others to know you are in the room or better Hotellobby! Lasts up to 10 Hours on Clothes. Again, be careful with the dose you use. Heavy, smokey stuff Mr. Kurkdjian.

overall Score 1/10 ( nice bottle and package ). I wish i could master this Scent, but I guess that needs someone with a blocked nose and the will to hurt others. Sorry.

Blended well like all MFK. I couldn't abide by the Rose which made it too Feminine on my skin.

Intense rose with a subtle medicinal vibe of the oud and the herbal, dry and bit creamy character of chamomille and papyrua. Good longevity
