A gourmandish oud beast

Shaghaf Oud is an absolutely beast mode of a fragrance, so take that as a warning to go lightly on the trigger or you'll choke everyone out.

I'd classify this as a gourmand oud where the praline and vanilla gives it a very sweet opening. So be aware that it is very sweet because if you aren't into gourmands then there are probably better oud alternatives.

I ended up selling my bottle as I prefer different ouds that are less sweet, but darker (gucci intense) or fresher (aqcua di parma), and I just couldn't see when I'd wear this. This could work well outdoor for the Winter or the cooler half of Fall.

All in all, you get tremendous bang for your buck here if you're into sweets and oud.
