    It happens to me with very "challenging" fragrances on the 3rd or 4th wear from a sample. Some of them are so oblique or different I don't really wrap my mind around it. This was the case for Mona di...

    Re: O'driu: Where to find samples?

    It's relevant only to EU customers for shipping/customs, O'Driu just needs something for paperwork. I gave my driver license #, but I'm sure even something randomly generated would work.

    Re: Most (_ _ _ _) Oud.

    Depends on which oud you're smelling, as it varies regionally. When I'm able to pick it out, it smells like a barn, petting zoo, or hay.

    To the OP: I nominate Al Oudh for dirtiest oud.
