I like this one, but there are so many!
The thing I like about this rose/oud "Western oud" scent is that the sandalwood dries it out and prevents it from getting too floral, too "chemical," too sweet, etc. If you have a few of these, though, you might not see the point of acquiring a bottle of this one. I obtained a bottle in a swap for something that was redundant so I'm really glad I did it, because this one "ticks all the boxes" for this kind of scent, unlike the others I have, which are a bit too this or that (though Is till like the mild rendition in Ferrari's Oud Essence; this one is significantly stronger, so it's for times when I want that extra kick).

Oud, roses and MUSK
ST Dupont Oud et Rose is really another variaton of the same theme and i totally agree with what my friend Coutureguru has written.

But actually in my skin it has a huge note of musk, bitter and recalls me of urine, unfortunately.

Opens with green roses and oud, then joins that animalic note that stays for a long time.

It lasts about 10 hours or more in the skin and after 4/5 hours that animalic note is toned down, which makes me enjoy a lot this fragrance.

It does really remembers me of J. Del Pozo Arabian Nights, which i find more subtle and less challenging than this one.

As said, lasting power is high while sillage and projection are medium.

Lovely ... but is lovely enough?
The Oud explosion into mainstream perfumery during recent times has been very welcome from the point of view that it has sparked an intense love for something that I didn't have contact with, nor ever thought I would.

Indeed, my contact with Arabic fragrances is new, spanning only the last four years or so. In this time I have come to realize just how fast the infectious marketing machine works ... Oud jumping like a virus from house to house. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but when one hunts these frags out as I do, one also notices that the quality of the product runs the gamut from awful to really fantastic.
S.T. Dupont's Oud et Rose falls into the upper half of this scale ... not near the top, but definitely not close to the bottom either.
It's a classic Oud and Rose combination, with the former making itself well known as it leaps immediately out of the bottle. The Rose is rich and full and blooms slowly ... finally becoming sweet and lush, but retaining a bitter edge and never becoming quite gourmand, as I sometimes like my Roses to be. The structure here is simple (and I can only go by my nose as minimal information on this fragrance exists) ... but in addition to the Rose and Oud, I do get a bit of Patchouli and a touch of Amber, as there is a soft vanilic side here, especially when I draw my hand away from my nose. There is also a dash of good quality Sandalwood present. I was lucky enough to try both from this collection on a recent trip to Jeddah, but found the companion fragrance Oud Oriental to be what I term 'barn yard-y', an effect that my nose still needs some training on to accept.
As lovely as Oud et Rose is, I find it similar in quality and smell to a few other such combinations I have tried ... some by Montale, Jesus Del Pozo's Arabian Nights, Perfume Calligraphy by Aramis and it bears a marked similarity to one of my latest acquisitions Nejma 3.
What I find mind boggling is the decision made by some of these companies to market exclusively to the Middle Eastern marketplace. It becomes obvious to anyone searching these fragrances out that combinations such as this ABOUND there ... adding another drop to a brimming bucketful seems pointless.

All that said, I am happy to have this ephemeral desert wraith in my collection. I don't wear it as often as I should, but then I do have quite a few Arabic frags that jump the line ahead of this one.
