A mysterious woody, aromatic, and floral accord
To me, all three Exclusive Oud, Wood Noir, and Ambre Noble, which are part of the "Exclusive Accords" collection, are similar in a way, all sharing the same vibe in the base and pretty linear.

Wood Noir introduces itself with the woody accord, not so prevalent in the top notes, very mysterious and profound, a sort of black ebony wood essence. There is a hint of resinous oud from the very first whiff blended with bright bergamot.

The initial "woody" notes they flow into a very rosy floral vibe after about half an hour, which could be off-putting to some, though I have no issues with it. Happily, it mellows into a more "oudy" scent polished by the floral lavender, which, in turn, has now lost a little of its rosiness and found a bit of its aromaticness. The heart decorates with an aromatic and green sage, which melts harmoniously with the lingering oudy and rosy facets.

From this point forward, it remains a delightful scent. A sweet oud aroma that enfolds you and creates an enigmatic aura all around you. Not overpowering, warming, calming, and soothing.

Initially, you might think it targets aged people, but after a while, the smell turns into something modern and contemporary, suitable for younger people, either. Its woodiness and warmness make it adapt for fall and winter seasons, day and evening. Yet, the fantastic longevity and moderate sillage make it very versatile for office and spare time.

Just another jewel in the ZARA collection!

Outstanding scent but under average performance.
Dark, smoky, woody, and a bit sweet.
Do blind buy it. It's that good. I have 3 flasks.

The initial woody notes flow into a very rosy floral vibe after about half an hour, then a sweet oud aroma enfolds you with a mystic aura!
