Reviews of Savanè Oud

I don’t get neither “savane” nor “oud” in here. What I get instead since the very opening is a smell of bicycle tires, refreshed by a thin herbal and balsamic-anisic breeze. Shortly, the smell of your bike after a stroll in the park. Apart from that, on the very base I only get some soft, gentle cedar-amber accord, and a generic yet pleasant smell of petals. That’s it for a while; then, reaching the drydown, the herbal-floral breeze fades away a bit, and you remain with a sort of rubbery cedar note with a subtle sweet-balsamic vibe. Now, I must say I enjoy Savane Oud’s refined discretion, which makes it an elegant close-to-skin scent; and I also appreciate the fact it isn’t another oud similar to dozens of others... but honestly – I can’t help it – it bores me to death.

Savane Oud is not your typical medicinal oud. Personally I wouldn't even classify it as a oud. It opens with a blast of dark green notes that, at traces, lean towards the resin/ copal type of aroma. Stark and quite striking. The fragrance introduces then a mix of semi-challenging spices providing a sweaty / arid vibe. A woody-patch base serves as the bone structure.

Pretty linear but nicely executed. I'm a big fan of Maria Candida Gentile's work and while I dig her Savane Oud, I think it lacks the extra-kick that would have turned it into something really special. In her defense, I've to say that she completely avoided to fall into synth dry-woody territories.

If you're a fan of stark woody stuff, give this a chance.
