Accord Oud by Byredo, 2010
Rated #4511 in Fragrances
More leathery and fruity (with an heady spicy patchouli prominent olfactory backbone) than "oud-ish" in a classic woody/medicinal way. A touch of oud provides a more resinous vibe in phase of dry down and of course a (though minimal) woody/oudish recognizable temperament. The berry-sh leathery (gassy/rubbery type of) accord conjures me more something like a mash up between C For Men Clive Christian, Colonia Intensa Oud Concentree Acqua di Parma, Tuscan Leather and Leather Oud Dior (rubbery- boots polish foam type-spicy and fruity oud-leather-patchouli combo) than properly a classy ordinary leather accord. I feel the initial rubbery/boozy blast and the addition of rum (sweetly boozy and spicy) is there to ticke your senses in a general prickly and aromatic atmosphere. The role of saffron, in its link with the aromatic sage and birth (absolutely notable at my senses), is refreshing and almost intoxicating at the beginning while it becomes almost gassy in the effect as well as the leather/blackberries/musk soft combination is accomplished. The initial approach is promissing before the juice starts to develop towards something more conventional and onedimentional, a sort of rubbery/leathery accord smelling somehow synthetic over its smooth musky/fruity base. Yes, a nowadays conventional experiment (uninspired but i have not enough reasons to thumbs it down) which anyway projects well and possesses a notable lasting power.
Birtch tar and berries. Sweetness and medicinal harshness. A juxtaposition of notes the point in opposite directions but that amalgamate into something both interesting and very wearable. Longevity is quite good on me, so that may be a user specific variable.
This is a wonderful scent. I think it would be delicious on a man. On myself, though I do like unisex and masculine scents, this one is just a little too much for me to want to wear every day. It's strong, which I like, and I'm sure I'd be very drawn to a man who is wearing it.
Leather, berries and saffron. If you're a fan of Agarwood fragrances, you'd best look elsewhere. I can't pick any in here. This is a safe, modern, unisex fragrance which lasts reasonably well for a Byredo fragrance, but not as well as it should. This is the kind of fragrance you wear when you hope someone will ask you what you're wearing, just so you can announce to the world that you're wearing a niche, and not the standard designer effort they might have expected from the scent. Give it a smell, and as long as you're not expecting any aoud, you just might like it. I won't be rushing out for it, though.
i love the idea to create oudy perfume, that is not pure oud, like Killians Pure Oud, dry and maybe dull, to my surprise oud feels like not so strong scent at all, its not like patchouly that screems for the attention. If its good quality its more like the lights in the fog, bit subdued. Here its dry slightly bitter smell aromatized with Sage, this is what i like, the leather here is bit like smoky-tobacco , and all is nicely balanced! nice office scent!! i like the aromatic tiwst with herbal note of sage!
I'd classify Accord Oud as a spicy fruity leather which strikes halfway between Tuscan Leather and Charles Street but it's definitely more restrained than either. Oud? Not at all, I'd say it's more oud-y. After the initial accord of boozy saffron, the fragrance rapidly turns into a blackberry-leather mid phase that while being nice it's neither particularly interesting nor original. Sage tries to provide a subtle, sort of "dirty" twist which is quite promising at first but it's not enough to turn Accord Oud into something remarkable. Overall: A quite conventional masculine sold at niche prices. Abysmal lasting power.
