The opening has a herbal basil-like undertone, which has saffron as its main component.

The drydown has a familar theme,
Which is frequently used these days: rose and oud impressions; just that the oud is applied in nigh-negligible amounts and the rose is a tad generic.

Woodsy notes and a soft patchouli - these are the basenotes prominent when I wear it.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

Another rose oud scent, good for autumn, and again with an oud component that does not really develop satisfactorily. A tad generic overall, but well blended. 2.75/5.

It looks like I'm going to be the grouch who doesn't like L'Autre Oud that much. It wears on me like it's mostly a mix of saffron and that aquatic "woody amber" base you smell everywhere. It comes off quite smoky and leathery (I'm guessing pine tar), and has a quiet floral hum. There's no oud in sight, which is irksome but forgivable in this day and age where most oud perfumes smell like saffron instead, but I just can't forgive that cheap "woody amber" base, even if it's used with a deft hand here.

If you want something similar but better, I'd suggest walking 10 feet from the Lancôme counter to the Sisley counter and trying their Soir d'Orient, which has the same basic appeal and structure, but is better orchestrated and doesn't rely on that cheap base.

We are in such post-oud times that it is surprising and refreshing to come across an oud done in the old manner, before the craze hit and oud was still mainly the preserve of Arabic style perfumery. So, this is not an oud pulled and stretched by ‘novelty’ notes, but one that goes for richness and balance highlighting the warmth and deep resonance characteristic of this entrancing ingredient. This is about as l’autre as this oud gets – it says, I can still do that old thing with assurance and it’s still magic.
This is a lovely woody perfume of great depth, stuffed with accents – humid, nobly mouldy, earthy, gently boozy, spicy in the most refined sense, hints of smoke and leather – that perform in unison. What the nose encounters is an instantly recognizable and rounded perfume that is all about greeting rather than evasion.
As with such ouds, the classic accompanying notes are deployed completely at the service of its friendly woody character – the saffron seems to align with drier aspects of the woody theme, the red rose extends its darkness rather than jostling to be the main event, and the patchouli brings a touch of the wine cellar. Fine work by Christophe Reynaud who is behind a number of mainstream designer hits – here that crowd-pleasing tendency gives us an oud that is truly sumptuous.

Wafted in front of a group of women on the tube having just squirted the tester at House of Frasier, one of them said, "Well, someone smells amazing" and pointed at me...

TAKE MY MONEY YOU LANCÔME BITCHES, JUST TAKE IT ALL!

Yes, I *am* that cheap.

Opens with a fairly nice and bold rose and labdanum accord which dries down to a dusty, powder fragrance with a very pronounced pine cleaner heart. This aspect is synthetic and dominant. With effort, I can discern patchouli in there and a vague mash up of green herbs...but it's tough. After an hour or so, the rose and a slightly bitter lemon note comes through and is interesting. Lasts well over 6 hours on skin. Projects mightily. Overall a bit too much and not well defined. Not horrible, but not worth the price point either.

Salutation.

In the words of a prominent critic, L'Autre Oud is “brilliant",legible, perfectly balanced and immediately recognizable,conpicuously alluring and myssteriously attracting.It is more classy than some of oud scents like Oud Malaki especially Versace Oud noir and less sophisticated than Black Oud for me.Strong but in a balanced way. Expensive,Rich,Oriental,Regal,Classy, Sensual,Complex and Gorgeous.

The core of this oud scent reverberates around a heart of romantic,feminine flowers like rose and finally a solid base of patchouli,vetevir,moss,guaiac wood and especially oud creating a lovely scent reminiscent a sophistication and subtle trance that can only come with a great fragrance.

This is a definitely oriental perfume. classic guys with high style and subdued taste in scents will appreciate.perfect for WINTER evenings. anyway if you want to stand out in a crowd by your scent,this is the fragrance to wear.

Sillage?Pleasant.

Longevity?About 8 hours on my skin.

7.75/10
