Reviews of Oud pour Lui

Borderline thumbs down, this is on the harsh side. I don't see it listed, but Darvant mentions incense, which is what I think I'm smelling as the redeeming characteristic, but it mostly smells like a mess.

Jasmine, Olibanum, Cumin.
Vetiver, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Amber, Oud.

My first wearing of Alyssa Ashley's Oud Pour Lui was not what I expected. Subsequent wearings produced the same result, however I'm more conducive to it after numerous applications. This isn't because there's anything off putting about the fragrance, nor is it because I find it inferior. It's due to the implementation of Incense and the tuning thereof. Oud Pour Lui is all about smoke and the resurgence of my Altar Boy memories at our local Catholic Church.

I was expecting an Oud dominant scent and instead of Agarwood, Incense took the lead and never looked back. On my skin, I experience full-on Incense with the expected smokiness and woody undercurrent. Oud Pour Lui is also linear and only the lowering of volume and presence during the base and drydown does it reveal other facets.

This isn't to say that Alyssa's interpretation is unsatisfactory. It's simply not what I had in mind when I pulled the trigger on a bottle. On the flip side however, if one likes Incense, Pour Lui isn't gender specific by any means. This is for anyone to wear and it has me curious to the feminine version and if it's similar. All the other players here bow in worship to the smoke, but it is a very wearable rendition. Sillage is good with longevity approximately 5 hours on my skin. A few hours into the wearings, the Incense chills enough to permit subtle amber, resins and cedar to strut their stuff. Thumbs up anyway from SS for Oud Pour Lui with the WARNING that Oud is simply a passive embellishment here.

Misty tornado
I have to admit of having been really impressed by the aroma of this fragrance immediately after the first sniff....."what a gorgeous combination of fruity floral tart notes and dark mystic elements" i thought in a while. Incense, spices, balsams, amber and fruits....a sort of new (conceptually, just it) Black Cashmere that i supposed to be managing with. One hour later unfortunately i noticed on my skin en excess of synthetic "presences" in the alchemy (probably a too much pretentious alchemy) in a way that you feel yourself asphyxiated by an overbearing and overly synthetic/resinous combination of olibanum, spices, benzoin and oud. Too much resinous, almost sticky. Effectively dark but cloying for sure. The best part is represented by the top notes since you detect soon a blast of citrus, tart flowers and still aqueous vetiver balancing the (soon) oppressive dark tornado emerging from the background. In a while that touch of wet radiancy is knocked down by a misty dust of culinary (plastic) spices, industrial olibanum, dark woods and resinous balsams draging you down under the quicksands level. A gorgeous olfactory idea Oud Pour Lui is unfortunately badly supported by the implemented olfactory means and by a shallow quality of the the elements.
Pros: Good olfactory idea
Cons: Cloying and suffocating"</p>
