Bois d'Oud Eau de Parfum fragrance notes

Reviews of Bois d'Oud Eau de Parfum

Loving the other Perris Monte Carlo scents, I had to check out "Bois d'Oud" EdP.

Spray-on starts out very boozy, like amaretto or other sweet liquer. Heart reveals itself to be rich and layered with several notes; initially, I get some mint and some other spices. Oud is present, but it seems to be slightly overtaken by a moderate sweet-spicy brightness, keeping the quality as slightly "wet." (Vanilla is the source of the foundational sweetness that pairs up nicely with the edible and floral heart notes.)

According to the fragrance note triangle, there are several "edible" notes within the heart. I do detect a slight presence of ripe peach and plum, with a "damp" sensation of rose, iris, and orange blossom deep within.

Woodiness and the animalic elements (ambergris, musk) add a slight pungency, warmed with rock rose.

I really like this scent. I would consider this more of a scent with oud accompaniment vs. oud as center stage (though agarwood (oud) isn't listed above, it is present in Bois d'Oud). It has a well-blended, warm, dark quality that can be enjoyed by both genders, though it seems to distantly echo certain beast mode perfumes like Dior's Poison for ladies. For men, it has a very classic, clean vibe that tips a hat to smooth old-school scents. And personally, this old-school trait is more wearable and enjoyable for me than Perris Monte Carlo's Oud Imperial, which waxes outdated versus this one.

Great scent overall.

Nice take on oud. Very syrupy/fruity/sweet. Almost beast mode on me. A little overwhelming at times so probably won't buy a full bottle.

Update
Done a bit of a u-turn on this one. Still like the opening 30 minutes or so but then it turns a bit cheap smelling.

It is a nice oriental, woody scent with some synthetic oud notes. Nothing groundbreaking and a bit too sweet in the drydown. But for <$100 it is a good deal.

This is more in "neutral leaning thumbs up" category.

A sweet, almost syrupy woody scent (don't get much oud to be honest, it's more a generic and synthetic "dark" wood note, which also takes quite a while to emerge), with rose, fruity notes and amber, lightly "viney" at the beginning but also boldly vanillish and resinous. As minutes pass it even gets sweeter, basically becoming for a while a vanilla gourmand with rose on fruity-woody notes. Initially it's nice, but to be honest after a while it gets a bit "tiring", mostly because of a persistent sweet personality which makes it hard to enjoy all the rest it covers. After some 2 hours it becomes tolerably more dry and dusty, slightly darker too. Still sweet, but in a more pleasant way - more gentle, more dusty, sophisticated, silky, finally revealing better its woody soul. If you like the idea of a fruity-floral syrupy sweetness gently darkened by some shady woods, it may be good for you – don't expect much oud, though (and be prepared to wait a bit for the best part).

A good friend Nilo recommended this to me after I asked him where could I get Aoud 1. He said that this is hands down a better fragrance and at better lower price point than Aoud 1. After testing both, I have to agree. They are both very good and different enough to have both in my wardrobe.
If im in the mood for something masculine yet a little on the sweet side, I will no doubt reach for this.
High quality and beast mode smell.

Dry, dark, dusty wood with touches of sweetish suede and hints of dry fruit. Faded rose petals crumble about it. Lived in and somewhat musty.
Has a shut in feel, so claustrophobics beware.
The oud is of a recognizable sort (something similar is in Dueto’s City Love) and I imagine this is one synthetic we’ll come across more and more.
It’s modest, un-fresh and a satisfying wear, if not exactly breaking new ground. An oud one can don and not be distracted by. Plumps out and opens up surprisingly in the deep drydown.
Perris is based in Monaco, the juice made in Italy, and the thrift store bling of the bottles is aimed straight at the Middle Eastern market.
