Absolute perfection. I smell citrus and woods upon first spray. After 15-20 minutes the cedar deepens and I smell the sandalwood and some musk. An hour out and from then on, there is a lemon/cedar and musk smell that is a projection beast. Sillage is spectacular. I have never had so many compliments and/or questions when I wear this. When I pull my arm in and smell closely, it gets very strong with a slight berry note. On my wrists, it turns into a powdery berry smell. Completely different. Insane! After trying this for over a month now, it is to me some of the best, ever. To each their own as is said. And for me, it is extremely masculine. I let several people try this male and female. It just smells better for men. Not saying it isn't amazing for a woman to wear. It's my heroin now, and I just pull my arm in close for a fix..
The opening feels like you have been bashed over the head with a cedar tree and then woken up with some peppers.
I can't detect any 'oud' per se -- it's a very dry 'woody' with hints of green and spices.
It's like the opposite to Guerlain's Santal Royal, which is all about oud.
Royal Oud must vie for 'best in woody genre' in the world.
Trust me -- you are going to feel good wearing this
Wow was this a disappointment. Zero longevity, zero projection, and nothing more than a basic cedar/woodsy scent. There are literally hundreds of fragrances out there that do this better, and for a fraction of the price. Definitely a pass.
An amazing spice and wood scent from Creed. I would say this is not an oud scent at all. Good mix of spice in the start and smooth woody (Cedar) notes with a slight musk and sandalwood at the end. I would say this starts more masculine in the start with a slight unisex dry down. Overall a winner and worth the price for full bottle purchase. Enjoy!
A spicy, slightly sweet cedar based fragrance.
This is a very good offering from CREED. It's certainly not oud based but rather cedarwood based. I also get lots of pepper that add a spicy slightly sweet note to the cedar wood. some musk appears in the base. f performance is good.
