    I actually went blind on this one, it seemed like one of the best in the line. But I'll report back as soon as it gets here.

    I just got yesterday a FB of Sand Aoud and FB of Cedrat Bois.

    Bought them, blindly, based on reading @ fragrantica.

    Sand Oud is , for my nose , (only) the oud vibe of Montale's Aoud Cuir d’Arabie mixed with the heart notes of LDDM.

    All in all, a wonderful smell , last 10+ hours on my skin , and just below average silage.
    I like it very much.

    Cedrat Bois is an opulent fruity juice that is on the same vibe of the opening of Creed Royal Oud MINUS the Oud vibe.

    Both are are blended perfectly , reflecting quality materials - and excellent box/bottle/pouch presentation.

    A must try....

    For me some of them bear a slight resemblance, but many are quite unique. That has been my experience with the ones I own.

    I have to LOL at the Montale-ian names (Kumquat Wood, Musk of Flowers, Roses Greedy... I'm beginning to believe the oft-joked about "Montale Name Generator" does actually exist), the fact that the "perfumer's" name is ****ing Pierre Mancera, and how even the typeface and especially the Name, with "logo" just above and to the right, and then Paris, right justified below, is the same (example: http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Montale/Amandes-Orientales-3758.htmlhttp://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Mancera/Aoud-Black-Candy-18041.html )

    Like many people I at first thought that oudh was overrated & a big stupid hype & to be obtained in it`s pure, romantic, natural form only by ultra-rich Sheikhs and Oligarchs ;-) But hell - synthetic, mass-market quickies or not: most of these oudh-samples just smelled god damn good. Even those with this uuugly aluminium-elox-can.

     

    In early spring I finally checked some oudhs like Montale, MFK, Tom Ford, etc. and especially liked the ones which were combined with notes like rose/patchouli/even bergamotte ... . The salesman brought a bottle of Sand Aoud and one of Czech & Speake`s Dark Rose which were a little similar.

    I totally liked the Mancera of which I never heard before because of its nice, comforting, boozy feel and there was MUCH going on in the drydown. It was one of those perfume-movies many masterpieces have (for ex. LADDM, Narcisse Noir, Anthracite, Mitsouko etc.). So I bought it.

     

    Later I heard people lamenting about marketing stupidities & strange similarities. I learned my lesson through this - even if I knew already: Just follow your NOSE. To make it short: Don`t know what Mancera is - do I really want to? - but Sand Auod to me is near to magic. And here in Germany it`s a bargain compared with others ... Nice evening!

    IMO, that's all that matters.

    The Mancera website says: "The creators of MONTALE perfumes have played an active role in this project. The name MANCERA was imagined to work well on a global scale"

    Pierre Montale
    Pierre Mancera
    Pierre Tanelli

    There are quite a lot of Pierre's who work together are't there? How confusing for the employees... ;)
