Oud Saphir fragrance notes

Reviews of Oud Saphir

To start, it should be pointed out that this is in no way an oud perfume. That being said, it's a proper leather scent that manages to cleverly incorporate multiple types.

It kicks off with quinoline, the main ingredient in Tuscan Leather, played against greens. This stage is a bit TOO familiar, as there are a ton of these, but it's eventually joined by rich suede and finally dries down to leathery birch tar. The rich suede thankfully manages to keep Saphir from being just another Tuscan Leather clone. Really, it's all about the slow slide from sharp quinoline to the smooth suede to the burnt pine, with a side of greens carefully maintaining continuity the whole way. Not entirely original, but nicely done.

Oud Saphire - Very much a leather-oud interpretation. The oud makes itself known right from the start, as is typical with this well known modern oud-interpretation. The composition is fairly well paired back and clean / clinical. It seems like a spin on TF tuscan leather - a little cleaner, a little less sweet, still with that nose-numbing abrassiveness. A little fleeting violet note ghosts in around the mid stages, and there is also some typical saffron that comes with these kind of fragrances.

Think TL gets the AC makeover. Not too bad at all if your after this kind of scent: that black-gray ashy type dryness. More an urban, night owl type scent. Monotonous on the whole with no real evolution. Too expensive for what it really is - being positioned as a more upmarket AC. If I had to pick a Oud I'd go for a more interesting / artistic option. 67/100

Reminds me of Tuscan Leather and other well-oiled leather scents (what does suede smell like?), except with more fruity-sweetness. Not saying this is a fruity or sweet scent, it is definitely a leather dominant scent. Not getting much if any oud, meaning, it doesn't smell woody to me, but I don't claim to be an oud expert either.

These kinds of scents are too cloying and sharp for my nose at this time, but hopefully, I can evolve into liking more daring scents like this. For now, it's a neutral-rating because while I don't particularly care for it, it performs well, smells refined and seems to execute the notes listed and the general idea behind the scent.

Plum and light oud vibe fragrance that smells pretty good. Non offensive and last for about 6 hours on my skin. As much as I get a plastic vibe from this fragrance, I still enjoy it. Pretty unique. 7/10

At first spray, I get a blast of jammy fruit. I swear I can detect plum, though that's not listed as one of the notes. Almost immediately, the leather shines through. Its not so much as an animal leather, but rather the smell of expensive Italian leather or a brand new luxury car. Later, the oud starts peeking through, but it remains understated throughout, giving it almost a mahogany-like backbone. I don't detect neither the bergamot nor the pink pepper, but the vanilla makes this wood and leather concoction sweeter and a little more feminine. I was surprised that I like this as much as I do because normally I prefer wood and leather scents to be mixed with either florals or fruits, but I find this to be both beautiful and wearable. Though it has saphir/sapphire in the title, this scent appears to me as a rich, deep, reddish purple. Overall I would give this an 8/10 and is something I definitely want added to my collection.

A brighter take on the Oud mystique, as interpreted by Atelier (compared to their Oud Nuit scent).

Oud Saphir definitely has the smoky, dark mossy character that you'd expect from an oud scent. It is a more floral scent (thanks to the jasmine) that feels a tad sharper and perhaps a bit more feminine than Oud Nuit, and the use of pepper "spikes" it accordingly. The amber in this one is evident, and paired with the slight presence of vanilla in the base, Oud Saphir goes in a different direction than a straight oud fragrance (cf. Versace pour Homme Oud Noir, which I found to be a basic and solid an oud potion sans the brighter elements).

Overall, a really nicely crafted, thought-provoking oud scent composition that explores a different side of that amazing note in an exotic, yet pleasant, way.
