Thread: Creed Royal Oud

  1. #1

    Default Creed Royal Oud

    I just come back from the Printemps store in Paris, where I stopped at the Creed corner to ask the manager about new fragrances to come, especially Original Cologne and Jardin d'Amalfi.
    She confirmed that these should be available in August, but add to my knowledge that Creed is right now in the process to deliver a new fragrance in July, named "Royal Oud".
    "Why an Oud fragrance in July ?" I asked. She answered that it has been scheduled for rich tourist from the arabian area that come massively in Paris this particular month to shop the Fall/Winter collections.

    Anyone else heard about this one ?

    nice scoop!

    this must be the "mystery" fragrance coming this summer, created by Erwin, that has the folks at Creed "far more excited than they were about Aventus".

    i love Oud. if this is true, this is very good news to me. this nicely fills another hole in the Creed lineup.

    Interesting.

    Creed will have a Royal Oud, as Montale has a Royal Aoud. (And there may be others as well...)

    What a way to go with your first post >.> Another creed bot I presume?

    Despite the fact i'm starting to like creed a little more lately, I'm afraid it's not a house I can see doing oud right. But we'll see..

    I was wondering when Creed would put out an oud offering. This is one fragrance trend I'm pleased to see, almost starting to make up for the Calone blight of the 90's.

    Ok guys lets get back to the main point of this...

    This sounds like a great scoop. I think this would be a great diversion from the very light fresh creeds that have been coming out lately. I hope that this is a darker creed much like many of the vintage scents from the past. I am dying for some vintage creed type creation!

    I'll try this, but can't say I have high expectations. Not crazy about L'Artisan and Kilian's Oud - I think certain companies just shouldn't do Oud. If they can put a unique twist on it, though, that might be interesting.

    I apologize for deviating so much in the topic of the thread earlier - I'm just trying to help a fellow bnoter out by providing some context for a way to avoid being angered here. In the interest of directing back straight into the topic - does anyone out there have any idea what the notes list is for Royal Oud? Anything published yet? Any rumors?

    I'm interested in the notes as well. I'm particularly fond of oud when mixed with rose (big surprise, ha!)

    I quit posting about my Creed purchases after Aventus just because of this specific basher.

    Only thing I got from complaining about him was a warning on my account so I quit post about Creeds. It's not worth it to try and talk about something you like just to have somebody keep on body slamming it and having to have the last word on your post be a negative one about the house.

    I won't complain about him again , but I agree with several people on this post.

    I don't mind people who disagree but 10x in one post about the same thing get's old, very old. Sometimes people just like the smell and don't give a darn about the history of the house or whether it was 8 bucks at Target. I sure don't and I still enjoy them all.

    Im guessing since its called "Royal" Oud itll probably be a Royal Exclusive. I think thatll be 5 in a row from Creed that are Royal Exclusives? Excluding Aventus. Spice and Wood, Sublime Vanille, and the three new ones. Plus this. Oh well, Just another Creed I wont be able to aford. Its a shame because I love the brand.
    Yayyy eBay...

    Sorry didn't mean to derail again, my favorit Oud so far is Leather Oud by Dior which I haven't had the sack to try and wear to work yet. I will be interested to see how this compares, hard to imagine oud with the creed house note. I haven't smelled any Bond Oud's now that I think about it either.

    I will definitely give it a sniff when it comes in !

    That's part of the reason I'm so amused by the oud craze, it's got all of the qualities reviled by consumers brought up on citrus/fresh-calone/aquatic-squeaky-clean-laundry-musks. It's the medicinal/fecal-tinged tree sludge left over from fending off a fungal infection, not exactly a sexy sounding product nor easy to work into a mainstream product. And even the generally good companies can get it very wrong; L'Artisan gets full props for putting in a bold oud-ish aspect but the rest of the execution is pretty miserable. This could be another Creed where you are left wondering why they named it after an ingredient it doesn't contain but oud could be one of the ingredients that plays to Creed's strength of using good materials in conservative compositions.

    It will not be a Royal Exclusive. It will be part of their main line. This is what I garnered from a conversation with the Boutique recently.

    so... mixing rumor with confirmed info, it looks like 2011 is shaping up like this:

    1 Limited Edition Release
    Feuille Verte
    250ml flacon
    $605
    (late April)

    3 Royal Exclusives
    Original Cologne
    White Flowers
    Jardin d'Amalfi

    250ml sprayable flacons
    $550
    (summer 2011)

    1 "normal" line release
    Royal Oud
    normal sizes, prices probably in line with Aventus
    (summer 2011)

    1 Super-Duper-Exclusive-Expensive-OnceInaLifeTime Release
    250th Anniversary Fragrance
    rumor of 50ml, rumor of $1500
    (fall 2011)

    Yes, I agree t would be a great move for this to be a heavy scent, as heavy and dark as say the "syrupy"(read: Syrupy oud) Royal English Leather or the potently woody Bois Du Portugal....

    I would be greatly dissapointed if they took a tiny dab of fantasticly dark natural oud oil, and cut it with the same synthetic oud used in XXV, and made a weak/dry/reserved scent like Spice and Wood

    please stick around. if enough of us put him on the "ignore" list, we will once again be able to enjoy discussing this company.

    Sorry i fell into his trap today. Never again.

    I think this could be promising, working under the premise that the Creed oud fragrance would be lighter in texture and therefore quite wearable.

    I'd hate to see a cheap, synthetic oud or something that could belong in the Montale Aoud lineup. To be part of the Royal Exclusives might mean it could be a VERY light skin scent, like Sublime Vanille, which smells very cheap and hollow.

    Are the Montale Aouds sucky? I always thought, from reading, that they were more competent. Never tried them though.

    Sublime Vanille is definitely one of the more "hollow" Creeds, it's like there's something missing from it to my nose. I wouldn't call it a skin scent, though. For Creed to make an oud smell that way, they would have to strip the fungal resistance right out of the stuff. If it's a normal Millesime, I'll be happy. I need a few more of those to choose from.

    Oh, no - because they use high quality ouds, they're often used as a benchmark from which to compare other oud fragrances. I should have clarified that Montale has really overdone their Aoud line to the point there are like 80 of them, now (exaggerating a bit, but there are at least a dozen too many in the Aoud series IMO). Creed's would need to stand out, above and beyond, any Montale Aoud in terms of originality... otherwise the Creed is just as redundant as Aoud ____ by Montale and I don't think anyone would want to spend Creed prices on a redundant oud fragrance.

    I suppose I could agree with calling the Royal Exclusives... "transparent"? Is that the style they really want to emulate? I've always associated royalty with excess, opulence... not transparency and light, breezy and even weak.
