It is kind of confusing naming, but as far as I can tell there is NO Immortelle in it, and there is also NO Oud in the fragrance either. It is a combination of ingredients created to simulate the various parts of development in an ancient (immortal) wood (oud) with the a note pyramid of Top notes:
of lemoncello, incense and cardamom, Heart notes:
patchouli, papyrus and Brazilian rosewood, and Base notes:
tobacco leaves and moss.
I have a bottle of this fragrance and I like it and recommend it if you like wood based scents.

I purchased Oud Immortelle because it smells really nice, can be worn in any occasion, oud-like with a syrupy limoncello at top. Definitely better than Accord Oud in my opinion, but I wouldn't mind owning Accord Oud also, to complete the Byredo Oud duo. They might even smell good layered together.
That is a shocking revelation indeed... And here I was thinking I had found the ultimate combination of oud and immortelle lol.
I appreciate all the info guys, it definitely helps put this fragrance into perspective for me. Maybe it's the limoncello that I like?
I'm glad to hear there are others who enjoy this. I guess I have to realize that most of you are extremely more knowledgeable than me when it comes to niche frags.
