A hell of a paradise
Roses, as far as the eye can see, noble in many shades of red. Behind, in front and around it darkest forest. In the distance a glow and glow. Purple, orange rimmed.
Likewise violet with blue-green reunion.
The sand-colored background plays with light, while the moonless night produces bright stars.
Coloured vertebrae seem to turn, becoming more and more intense, kaleidoscopically interwoven.
Until the purple light remains and everything else slowly dissolves into silent explosions with distant reverberation.
A "Big Bang" of rich fragrances carries the senses away with it. But the depth has not yet been explored.
The rose suction draws the woods under its spell, loosens chips and carries their aroma far over mountain and flat land.
The comfort of a pine forest that absorbs the heat of the day.
Moisture and covers the needles of the conifers with wafer-thin drops.
And again the distance glows, and the play of light begins anew.
Dark and bright, rich and pastel, hot red and cool turquoise blue, mysteriously draining violet. And thousands of flowers breathe their scent into the wafting air.
No frost, no storm and no summer heat can harm them.
They are protected by forest, lake and grass.
The sun may have risen, but then everything lies in mild light, like innocent and a kind of paradise.
And when the evening comes again, the magic of the "spectacles" will return, the fires will glow, the color wheels will spin...
As from the beginning of times at.
A "hellish!" beautiful paradise. "Olfaktoria, the muse of the night, sends her greetings

A Rich Rose Oudh
Tiziana Terenzi Gold Rose Oudh
A rich rose Oudh

I wore GRO for a third time, trying to decide what to do with this blind buy.
They say the third time's a charm, and I guess it is because wow, it finally hit me what a beauty she is.
The first two times I tested GRO I applied it shyly, one tiny spray, and the result was an animalic opening with dark bitter sour roses and it just didn't work for me (I struggle with rose notes in perfumes and cosmetics).
Today I sprayed a little more generously, 3 sprays, and this brought out her true beauty. Yes, sometimes more is better ;)
GRO opens strong. The top is deep dark bitter. Imagine a rose dark as blood, dried blood, almost black, with a thick stem and the darkest green leaves you've seen, standing in rich wet soil, that's the image that comes to my mind. That rich earth is probably the patchouli and oud. I remember smelling some high quality Oud oil a few years ago and it transported me to winter walks in the forest I used to make as a kid. We'd play hide and seek, making yourself tiny, crouching behind trees and shrubbery. That smell of rotting leaves and wet soil, sometimes still covered with patches of snow here and there, mixed with the dark green pine smell, there's something very comforting about it. In this fertile setting stands a lush dark rose with a powerful deep and rich aroma, on the bitter side, not sweet.
I didn't pay attention to the evolution, but suddenly I was thinking gosh, I love this. In the dry down the play between the rose and the Oud (soil note) is perfectly balanced out, it has softened, become more dusty or powdery, more smoky, whilst hiding some sweetness under that smoky cover, and it's captivating. I can't keep my nose off my arm, and boy am I glad I held on to my bottle and didn't swap it away as soon as I got it.
This may have just joined the ranks in my personal best and most loved rose and Oud combo fragrances.

A Classic Rose Patch Oud Combination With A Twist
Gold Rose Oudh opens with a dominant slightly raspberry jammy rose light as air supported by sharp green bergamot citrus. As the composition enters its early heart the airy rose remains the star, now supported by a relatively refined Oud and patchouli tandem with hints of underlying green fir and some of the slightly sweet honey rising from the base. During the late dry-down the rose and Oud slowly recede though never completely disappear as the slightly sweet honey takes over as star with subtle dry amber support remaining through the finish. Projection is excellent to outstanding and longevity excellent at about 12 hours on skin.

The rose, Oud and patchouli trio is such a classic combination that it is hard not to yawn when yet another rendition is released (no matter how competent). It is all too easy to dismiss Gold Rose Oudh as just that... but there really is more to this composition than its surface classic structure indicates. The first thing notably different than the norm is its sharp green underlying nature immediately noticeable at the open through the deft use of bergamot citrus in an unexpectedly different way, furthered by an infusion of coniferous fir later in the early heart. Just when one may feel the composition has revealed all its secrets the late dry-down comes seemingly out of nowhere, turning it into a dry honey and amber driven affair through the finish. The bottom line is the $145 per 100 ml bottle Gold Rose Oudh does little to plow new ground for the crowded classic rose, patch, Oud genre, but its brilliant execution and subtle nuances throughout distinguish it, earning the composition an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 and a strong recommendation.

Rose-oud-combo that pleasantly surprises. Honey makes the scent not sweet, but full and soft (despite spiciness). A touch of fir invigorates.+1
