Reviews of Oud Silk Mood

An authentic masterpiece, the most seductive material in my collection. The rose, deep, black, grave, sinks into the strength of the oud with the silk vanilla of a sumptuous curtain, covering the secrets of a consummation of forbidden love. The particularity of this perfume, that for which it is distinguished from any other, is its "density": the skin is covered with a thick, almost palpable layer of scarlet fabrics and funereal exhalations of ripe rose.
Its simplicity, its imperturbable persistence (the aroma does not advance, does not recede, does not change in any way from its beginning) contribute to create an animal aurea of pure eroticism: baroque, exultant, romantic, without any evocation, without any refinement beyond those who reserve the wise charm of lust to the evocation of drunken sensuality (mature sensuality, but completely self-abnegated by the drunkenness of a bleeding perfume of criminal passion).
An incomparable piece of olfactory art that awakens impulses that she herself sleeps.

Lovely rose, oud, chamomile, and papyrus combination. Lovely but, not overly memorable.

I'm giving it thumbs up b/c I like this type of fragrance. Having said that, the rose is gorgeous, but the oud is of the infamous "Urinal Cake" variety. This gives a sharpness that other reviewers have called Citronella-like. It could be great if the sharp urinal cake oud was replaced with a more animalic oud.

UPDATE: Drydown is much better, rose and stone dust. Very dry

Stardate 20170630:

A typical oud rose combo of its era. There is a sour note like citronella candles - like in Baruti ouds(nooud). It is perhaps a note in the synthetic oud they both use.
I am a sucker for well balanced rose-oud. This one is. Development is good and it gets much smoother with time. There are others that are similar and cheaper - Tiziana Gold Rose Oud, Yurman Limited edition, nut OSM has its own charm.
This is perhaps the best from this line (I have not tried oud cashmere mood so can't be 100% sure)

What Oud Silk Mood has to do with silk, I have no idea. This stuff is harsh. It lunges aggressively out of the bottle with searing notes of metal, rubber, smoke, and oh yeah, some thin and medicinal oud and rose in the background.

About 10 minutes after I applied it for the first time, my wife said, "What the hell are you wearing?! It's so strong I can *taste* it." I agree; it sticks in your nose and leaves a lingering taste of pennies on the tongue for about 30 minutes.

It does settle down a little bit as we enter the heart, but I still fail to see this is as a rose and oud dominant scent. The primary accord is arid like an industrial dryer: a papery (papyrus?), herbal (burnt chamomile?) accord with a backbone of, oh I don't know, but the word "acid" comes to mind. I can imagine a paper manufacturing facility smelling something like this. There's a twist of medicinal woody oud in there somewhere, and really very little rose to speak of.

In summary, I find it aggressive and unpleasant throughout.

After having tried all of MFK Ouds barring Velvet Mood, Silk Mood comes across as the most easy to like. While the original Oud was severely underwhelming, the other three are well done and respectable compositions. Cashmere Mood is perhaps the most intriguing and intriguing, while Satin Mood disappointingly subsides into a boring amber-vanilla accord.

Silk Mood is perhaps the most conventional, with it being a straightforward rose-oud offering. The rose is lush, velvety, buttery and the oud is slightly medicinal but also very much on the subtle side. In fact, the oud is largely subdued and plays second fiddle to the rose. The texture of the rose is similar to the one in Noir de Noir, Ambre Nuit, or Lyric Man. There is no smokiness. There is a slightly green, austere nuance to the composition - perhaps from the papyrus and chamomile. There is considerable depth (mostly attributable to the ingredient quality), but not a great deal of complexity. I find it mostly linear on my skin, but there is actually a very slow transition as the rose eventually subsides over several hours. Sillage is moderate but persistent, and duration is excellent at over 7-8 hours.

While a commendable offering, it has a few shortcomings. Anyone looking for an oud or a rose-oud fragrance could be disappointed, as the oud is very underplayed. The non-rose components of this fragrance could have been further explored.
