Mathilde Laurent created something massive here.

After the alcohol fades, you get a whiff of some oud's signature: that barnyard smell. which lasts for a few minutes.

It's not an unpleasant note, but I suspect it was created for people that know of and love ouds. It's just part of the game, and you're playing it as soon as you spritz it.

About 10 minutes in a smokey, very light but noticeable, pops up....and it sticks around for a few more minutes. What's next is the final product, the dry down. I heard that this was made with three different ouds, and whatever else the perfumer put in to amplify them (oud can only be 4% of the total concentration accord to IFRA, and so she must be working with captives to create this unique scent. Oud, the real stuff, is quite expensive, about $200-$4,500 for THREE grams. When perfumers' say they used the real stuff, I always wonder if they mean a drop in a gallon just so that they say they put real oud in it.)

Considering all of that, what she made is a massive attack. This smells like the real stuff, sweet and sour, but the sour and smokey notes go hand in hand. The drydown is a woody, sweet, but not vanilla, drydown that's totally addictive.

Will I buy another bottle? At $380 for 45mls, I think not. This was a splurge for me, a blind buy after trying Oud & Oud. This isn't as diffusive as that one was, but it's best to leave it alone and not layer it as they suggest. I think a perfume like this stands on its own and doesn't need "help." It's close to the skin, which is great as this won't be a crown pleaser unless your friends and coworkers are bonkers for oud.
