Reviews of Sand Aoud

Amazing Mancera fragrance once again that is only to be judged after 20 mins! When it dries down one is left with a gorgeous blend of fruityness (mainly black currant) on a dusty bed of oud and patchouly surrounded by saffron and light spices but smelling still kind of fresh! Really unique stuff and I know nothing like it. It has above average projection and longevity for sure and performs marvelous.
Thumbs way up! Rating: 8.5/10

Unfortunately my bottle did not impress as much as the sample. Dried celery opening is terrible and lasts an hour and is present in some way the whole time. This is what Mancera refers to as "spices". The drydown is better but the opening is nauseating. Reformulation? The celery seems to be the same as that in mancera Aoud Cafe.

Mancera gets it right, again. Instead of going into some deep, psycho-babbly review, I'll just say this. There is NOTHING about this perfume that I dont like. Lets put it that way. And it has more of a Eastern vibe, than a Western vibe. You wont run into anyone else wearing this, unless they take perfumes as seriously as you do. There is nothing run of the mill about it.

Mancera's Sand Aoud is a very nice, semi-traditional Aoud fragrance, with spices and Black Current top notes, over a patchouli, vanilla and musk base. There's an almost creamy, sandalwood like sweetness in this, although sandalwood isn't listed in the composition. The vanilla, musk and patchouli come through in this very nicely and the development is very minimal. Sand Aoud is much lighter than similar Aoud fragrances, making for a more versatile, easy to wear scent than any heavier Aoud-Rose, Leather or Incense accord in the market. I see this as mostly a masculine scent that could be worn on any occasion, but better for cooler weather. Excellent sillage and longevity from two sprays. Smells expensive, high quality and well blended. Thumbs Up.

This shares some of the qualities of two of my favourites, The Bugatti and Jubilation XXV.

First, like the Bugatti it has the buttery,caramel, mildly citric, musky, plush texture reminiscent.Drydown.

Second, like Jubilation it uses Black Berry note, different.Draws the heart to drywood.



Where it differs from both.
The opening. Patchouli, camphour, together with the "Hot Spices"( Whatever that is?)sucks the breath from you, such as, the desert heat.

Would I wear it? Perhaps.

Is it made for the wardrobe of a woman?

Most certainly of mine!

decent at first, gets really bad after a while. somehow a medicinal-weird-leatherish (and i love a good leather scent). good longevity and silage.
