I'm not an oud fan at all, and I tend to love the synthetic industrial nature of CdG's various endeavors. Consequently, this works quite well for me -- which is perhaps not the greatest compliment for the perfume. It opens insanely loud (1/2 a spray is more than enough), and blasts you with a plastic-y, piss-poor rendition of oud and rose that smells like rubbery chemicals when combined. Imagine a pair of thick, yellow latex gloves and then crank their scent up to eleven. For me, it's oddly appealing. While essentially made up of a three key aspects (rose, saffron, oud), they are individually recognizable, circling around the olfactory equivalent of deep, rich (fake) red velvet. But given it's brutal strength and chemically-induced tenacity, this is not for the weak of heart. Eight hours later, I'm still smelling the stuff like I just applied it. So be warned.
If you're looking for a mimetic oud attar-type scent, look elsewhere. But if you want loud and dark, and have no compunctions about invading the space of those around you, this might be worth your time.
Pros: Insanely loud and domineering, so you'll get your money's worth.
Cons: Very fake smelling, and far too strong.
