Reviews of Honey Oud

The Honey Oud opens with a distinct honey note, almost like sack mead, but already after a few minutes the oud and vanilla begin to dominate with a slight hint of rose and amber in the background. It starts off very original, but soon settles into a rather conventional (but elegant) vanilla, boozy rose and oud. After an hour, the boozy rose and a little oud is all that is remaining.

The base notes are fairly weak and both longevity and projection are average.

As clear as the name. A beautiful, strong but wearable honey, and oud. Sometimes I get the rose and think it's feminine. Sometimes I don't and I want my male friend to wear it. There's some saltiness in the dry-down.

I love it! I just don't know if I should wear it. No idea on how it projects. Longevity and sillage are both good.

EDIT a few hours later : There's a lot of sublime rose now! Definitely feminine. I keep it! Addictive.

I get the a beautiful fresh bergamot at the start, then it settles into a smooth, high quality and polite rose-honey-vanilla/amber combination. This accord gives off a play-doh like resonance in the background that makes the whole thing a tad immature. Overall nice, but not great.

Floris Honey Oud has received a lot of buzz lately, and in liking both main notes, seeing its positive reception in the online community, and really loving Montale's similarly-named Honey Aoud, I knew I needed to sample Floris Honey Oud.

First off, both eponymous notes dominate the fragrance--it's mainly honey and oud, simply put. Other notes factor in: bergamot provides a non-sweet citrus additive to the opening of the fragrance, and patchouli and rose support the heart, but very subtly. I don't specifically get labdanum but there's a general floral element that could just be the mix of rose and labdanum. And while I don't specifically get vanilla or musk, vanilla easily blends with honey and musk easily smoothens any dry down.

I get year-round wearability out of this, as the comparably winter-leaning notes of honey and oud come off pretty fresh. I can't think of another way to put it: even in its dry down, there's something very refreshing about the honey and oud duo in this case.

I feel the need to mention that despite my initial suspicions, Floris Honey Oud is not terrible similar to Montale Honey Aoud, as Montale's take is simply heavier-handed on both the eponymous notes to make their fragrance both more of a gourmand and more oud-intensive. Floris Honey Oud is, by contrast, a fresher, more year-round-friendly use of both notes, but still performs well.

I like Honey Oud a lot and will strongly consider adding it to my collection. $235 for 100ml retail but available at FragranceX for $152, its pricing is viable for how much I like it, and frankly, for how different it is from Montale Honey Aoud, also on my to-buy list.

An uncomplicated oud scent – refreshingly clear and direct. The honey note takes prominence in the opening. It’s not a raw honey note – it’s been civilized by the assistance of vanilla. The accord is sweet but it is neither as sweet nor as tinkley as honey often smells. It is definitely classy – after all, they do call it “English honey”. The oud begins and remains in the background and it, too, is neither feral nor raspy. As for the rose, I don’t smell it and that doesn’t bother me at all, because I’ve smelled more than enough rose-oud fragrances in the past several years. The amber, musk and laudanum that are listed in the base are definitely present, but not very stand-outish from the oud / vanilla… the composition of the base makes the scent rather linear.

I find this a quite pleasant and distinguished fragrance. The problem I have with Honey Oud is that, on my skin, it has quite limited duration as a sillage maker – it lasts for only two or three hours; after that, its skin-scent stage lasts a couple hours more.

I find this oud fragrance very clean, enjoyable, and, surprisingly original (there have been so very many oud fragrances of late, so points for its uniqueness). What it lacks in breadth and depth, it makes up for in clarity, freshness, sweetness, directness, and even an interesting creativity. I was even planning on buying it until I saw the price… Nahh-aah!

I love this fragrance. It has good longevity without being cloying or overpowering. The honey is intense, with a softer finish from the oud. Just beautiful.
