Palace Breeze
This fragrance is fabulous, clearly a hidden gem: it’s smooth, very smooth… And certainly unisex - which translates to slightly floral -: Peach, rose, oud and vanilla enhanced with saffron, musk, jasmine and patchouli.

There’re very few fragrances that impress me after having tried hundreds, maybe thousands. And this is one of them.

The best thing about exclusive editions with Oud is that they don't sell well and finally hit resellers with ridiculous prices, but take advantage quickly because they’re discontinued immediately after.

More specific - and important - details about this fragrance:

- The oud note is smooth and a bit medicinal, never dirty. It’s perceived as one of the protagonists at the opening, but gradually hides in the base during the dry-down.

- The scent quality is simply high-end designer: Do a blind test with releases from MFK and Tom Ford with a camera if you dare, so you don't come up with excuses later.

- Perfect projection for a classy fragrance - suggestive, not overpowering - with very good longevity.

- In the case of a man, it’s excellent for elegant events in autumn, winter, spring and even for cool summer nights.

Another fantastic use is for relaxing and romantic dates: “Oud Blanc” is the perfect kind of scent for a Hollywood’s classic scene in an oriental palace, a starry night, a princess and a prince…

So to conclude:

- Criminally smooooth and criminally underrated. Undoubtedly, one of my favorite elegant designer orientals.

Typical Oud and Rose Combination
The initial spray of this fragrance is astringent and dry potpourri rose; not a sweet or jammy rose but your grandmother’s potpourri rose. After about 15 seconds the scent starts to dry down and is linear all the way through.

The rose dissipates and moves to a more gentle stance and the jasmine, musk and slight patchouli comes forward; the next day leaving a vanillic type rose on your skin. I don’t get any saffron, Amber or peach. This does have longevity but doesn’t project all that well. This does have about an hour of sillage - a good scent trail then dies down.

This reminds me of Jacques Bogart One Man Show Gold Edition, and Swiss Arabian’s Shaghaf Oud Aswad. However both the aforementioned have a little more depth (note separation), and more projection (both highly recommended for Oud lovers). There’s not a lot of depth to Ted Lapidus’s Oud Blanc. But hey… for the price point… it’s pretty good and typical Oud / Rose combination.

My final verdict:
Scent 7/10
Longevity 7/10

A fruity and floral gourmand light oud oriental scent that I judge to be totally unisex. A cheapie that just made my nose say wow!
