Some claim a honey accord from Aoud Flowers and I can see where they get that from. It's a bit softer than the Black and the Lime but still nice rose, some oud and the softened "honey" woody accord. Not as soft as Golden Aoud but slightly softer than Black and Lime.
BTW, Golden Aoud is something you should consider.......or should I just shut up for adding another choice?! :-)
Similar rose, oud, woody, softer as mentioned, very lasting and a tad more complex than Black. A kindler, gentler Black Aoud would not be far from accurate.
That is my problem. As has been said, the Rose Aouds are just a continuum so to speak. Black is more aoud that roses, then Rose Petals is opposite more rose than aoud. Aoud Limes was good on me, Ill give it that. But I am loving the rose from Le Labo 31, and if it had half the oud of say Black Montale and projected as much, well, there is heaven right there. But I dont get any spices other than a bit of cumin from Le Labo. I dont want soft per se. Vijay says he thinks it is between Black, Damascus and Rose PEtals, and that I would not like say Golden, Queens Rose or Rose Musk.
As you know, Red Vetyver is nowhere near any of the Aouds so.....Still awesome just the same but an apples to baseballs comparison. Get one of the Aouds and Red Vetyver and you'll be good to go.
I thin that is what I want to do. Or maybe Paestum Rose and Red Vetyver
