A challenging, dark smoky oud
I sampled this one for the sole purpose of trying real Laotian Oud oil. The scent opens with an aggressive medicinal bandage note that verges on melting plastic. Was not a fan at first, but as it dried down, I got earthier and sweeter notes of fungus (morel), vetiver, and sandalwood. It also smells significantly better on skin, blending with my natural chemistry into something more human and approachable. Glad I tried it, but just not for me.
