hmmmm next!
I tried both Valentino Noir absolu Musc essence and oud essence today.
On the blotter strip, Musc essence was sooo shockingly lacking any fragrance.It was more like nuances from really really far away, so i didn't spray it on me.
On the other hand Oud essence, was the exact opposite, so i did 1 spray on my wrist.I first got a proper fecal punch, like true oud oils/ proper oud accords have with a saffron presence and was very happy with it. then 1/2 hour later it was almost entirely gone, what wafted was a faint cacao/labdanum(? not 100% sure) with a sugary/ buttery/ confectionery "charge".
Overall, nothing special, not great sillage, terrible longevity.The actual fragrance is quite pleasing to me but nothing that hasn't been fashioned before.I can find more interesting perfumes around that price tag(148 euro Athens/Greece)

Take the sharp oud accord from Gucci Intense Oud and add lots of smokey leather and significantly less performance than youd expect.
