Smoke and Incense!
I enjoy this fragrance. Lots of incense and woods. Not a sweet incense. It’s very dry, smokey and woody incense with the faintest hint of Oud in the background. The oud is a beginner Oud and a little balsamic bordering amber resin.

In the opening I get the sweetness from the plum and the praline and in five minutes it’s gone. After that the fragrance is linear and doesn't change over the duration of its longevity.

I really enjoy fragrances from Ted Lapidus as well as from Jacques Bogart. I know they’re low-end and synthetic but I really enjoy them. For the price point you can’t go wrong with both lines.

My final verdict:
Scent 8/10
Longevity 7/10
Projection 7/10
Sillage 6/10

Dry Smokey Oud
Initial Impression short review

Very dark, smokey, and dry. Don't be fooled by the sweet notes of vanilla, praline, etc., I feel there is just barely enough of those notes to not be offensively bitter and acrid. This is slightly bitter and acrid, but in a good 'sat close to a bonfire' way. The beginning brings a very rubbery oud, which gives way to the main smokeyness- perhaps they are going for burning/burnt oud feel? Maybe someone more familar with that could tell me if that's accurate, but I really enjoy it anyhow.

In comparison, I had bought Amouage Interlude for the smokeyness, but it was too sweet, so I sold it. I am not saying they smell anything alike, but I much prefer this dry smokiness to the overly sweet oppoponax of Interlude. Performance also is nowhere near the Amouage, obviously, but decent for the $30-ish that I paid.

Edit: After a while the sweet notes cone out to play, but only slightly and definitely not cloying. More like a smoked plum feel, without being excessively opulent. Highly recommended, but not for everyone.

Your typical oud/leather combo with some sweetness nothing groundbreaking pleasant enough synthetic but for the price you can't go wrong.

rough, spikey, and smokey oud. Imagine a leather jacket hanging by a fireplace with someone occasionally throwing plastic in the fire.

A smooth and fruity leather oud. This is classy. And lovely packaging. I'm surprised there is no Rose note listed.

Layers of smoky and balsamic parts are superimposed. So it feels more complicated than it really is. But poor shame performance.
