That's where the sweetness lies
But first of all
The eyes
From the potato

This is
Crass opulence
Nose almost closed
Gasping
Rose geranium
Swings to
Patchouli benzoin
Creaminess
Vetiver underneath
Leather sauce
Incense
Not like church
That's enough
Amber ambush
Solid type
Lover's delight
Caramel pudding
So full-on nice
For hours

Too much for me

The Tale of Mythic Queen Scheherazade
"Against her father's wishes, Scheherazade volunteered to spend one night with the king. The king lay awake and listened with awe as Scheherazade told her first story. The night passed by, and Scheherazade stopped in the middle. The king asked her to finish, but Scheherazade said there was no time, as dawn was breaking. The following night, Scheherazade finished the story and then began a second, more exciting tale, which she again stopped halfway through at dawn. And so the king kept Scheherazade alive day by day, as he eagerly anticipated the finishing of the previous night's story. At the end of 1,001 nights, and 1,000 stories, Scheherazade told the king that she had no more tales to tell him. During these 1,001 nights, the king had fallen in love with Scheherazade. He spared her life and made her his queen." I envision the Persian King Shahryar wearing a beautiful and wealthy attar during those thousand nights. In a more modern era, that scent could match with the sound of the dunes and the silence of the old cities. The gold of the sand bathed in sunlight at dusk and dawn.

With an unusually mild winter here in northern Italy, I'm reaching for this scent more and more often and loving it more each time. This scent is on par with Ferrari Essence Oud and worth experiencing for any oud rose lover. I do confirm the two fragrances when compared side by side smell very similar in the first hours, but then Essence Oud takes a resinous oud path, whereas Amber Our is all about leathery oud, which makes the two apart. Amber Oud turned out to smell rather fantastic to my nose. Upon several applications, I detect a strong leather accord along with an oud note. To me, that is a good thing.

It starts with a strong smell of oud with blossom and spicy, a slightly dark yet sweet welcome. The first thing that came to my mind was undoubtedly not amber, nor modern ambroxan, but instead rose—a precious, warm, not particularly sweet rose. When I read the note breakdown, I realized it was geranium rather than a rose. Perhaps, the misleading note is the geraniol molecule, which as both a rose and a pelargonium odor. But while geranium absolute smells decidedly rosy, here it lacks the tickling sweetness that real roses can have.

Oud appears mentioned as a middle note; however, I feel it as an overall backdrop note. On the heart within an hour, the rose becomes fainter while the oud s paired with some sort of smoky, sweet balsamic resins; the mixture together very much smells like incense, but with hints of rose and soft gums.

Amber Oud goes on to reveal a dense leather base. The geranium persists well into the dry-down, along with something slightly sour and earthy, which prevents the scent from becoming cloying. The sourness might derive from whatever creates an "oud" accord. On the final, it is sweet, smoky and leathery oud, just a tad dirty in the best way. Amber Oud is a very western take on the traditional middle eastern rose oud. It is an Italian take on the Oud combination. As such, if you are used to the middle east and south Asian attar blends, this is slightly different and in the right way. The Oud note in this is not overpowering, and there is none of that medicinal smell that most of these synthetic oud frags have.

I felt comfortable wearing Amber Oud. It is currently cold where I live, and this is a fragrance for the cold months. This particular fragrance is a beginner's oud, as it is not so animalic or in-your-face as others, but is more of a pleasant chocolaty gourmand type. I've worn this to bed a few times! It's the perfect scent to wear to bed. Maybe not for the office, but nights out. Sillage is strong with this, so it's perfect for wintertime. At the same time, longevity is also reliable, projecting loudly for the first hours, and then continuing with less projection, with over merely all night.

What a fragrance, thanks to Parfumo discovered. Smell the strip on the test and bought it immediately. I'm not the big perfume unscrambler. My experiences are it is a compliment magnet, has often been addressed on it and always very positive! Really chocolaty noble a little leathery. Sillage is above average one is definitely perceived and he holds through only slowly becomes weaker. Do not exaggerate when spraying. Shelf life with me at least 10 hours. Has become my favorite night out party scent. Too bad for everyday life and too conspicuous. Hope he's gonna be around for a while. With correct dosage Unisex

What the Fabulum?
"Here is wisdom: heed it well! There is no such thing as real oud! Oud is an invention of certain chemical companies who were experimenting tweaking various aroma-molecules; when one day ~Blam! Pow! Gewalt!~ they knocked a six right out of the ground (a ~cricket~ analogy, for our USian & EUian cousins), and discovered what they now name ~jinkohol~ & ~agarospirane~ & various others. This was a serendipity comparable to the synthesis of diazepam or nitroglycerine; and to aid in the marketing of perfumes containing these serendipitous compounds they utterly fabulated a mythology about mouldy wood & internecine wars between gangs smuggling it."

Well, that may be a bit of a thunderbolt; and though I do not actually believe the foregoing, uw know, if it turned out that it ^is^ actually true, what I have just said, I would not be ^colossally^ surprised - & I do mean that literally. The whole mythology of oud has gotten out of hand, & I seriously think people are being massively °geschwindelt° by it. (Love that German word - means a bit like 'swindled' but with the emphasis more on the over-wrought-ness of state of mind than on the act of cheating - if I understand it not amiss.) The point is, who ^can^ make a definitive statement about what is really going on with oud these days. The supply seems to be drying up - for real! - at least of the higher grades (the term 'sinking-grade is used on the ~Ensar Oud~ website; and that kind of looks honest - I recommend it, it's a good read - but forget not! you are being solicited on it to buy the produce!); and though plantation-inoculation oud may increasingly be in supply, who knows? people may even prefer the synthetic to that.

Having said all that, this 'fume is an outlier value-for-minlet-wise: a good satisfying oudy fume, if uw don't analyse it too deeply. It does the trick - in most 'fume-requiring situations - & is relatively cheap. A stout workhorse for taking one's produce to the market - will get the goods there & uwr cart back; but for drawing the Royal Carriage - uw may well do well to choose something with a bit more of a pedigree.

Amber & Oud (& Incense) in the same line as Halston Amber and Amber Mystique, plus a smooth leather alluring note to make it unique! Is it?
