an outstanding summer-grade oud! cedar offsets the oud and bright vetiver gives it a freshness that really works. longevity is disappointing for an edp but i got this for a great price so i spray with abandon.
This is good woody and spicy fragrance for serious guys!
There is huge blast of oud in this fragrance for sure but not medicinal like YSL M7 or Amouage Epic Man.
In the opening, there is strong scent of cedar, vetiver, pepper and oud. Very Strong but not in your face and really pleasant.
When dry down comes, oud ,cedar and vetiver are still there with some floral which comes from geranium and some sweet musk.
Finally at the base, floral and oud are weak in the background with cedar and vetiver hand to hand and some sweet musk to give it a semi sweet and musky vibe.
Projection is very good and longevity is above average.
A mellow Knize Ten.
