    I really love it. As does my girlfriend. It has generated a few compliments. I don't know why it generates so much criticism. It is elegant, smooth and refined. If it were called something else there would be no issue with this one. Spicebomb is fine, but this is much more satisfying.

    The more i spray this side by side with Spicebomb I'm picking up a lot of similarities. Yes they are 2 different styles, with Spice bomb being sweet and RO extrmely dry, but very similiar vibe. Not sure if i need both in my collection, but I'm really likking RO, and it appears it performs better than spice bomb as far projections. Spice bomb lasts long but sits very close to skin

Or a 500ml flacon for less than $850 ? Wishful thinking ?

    Yes, after Spicebomb gets thru it's horrid candy-floss and fruity-bubblegum stage it goes into a Tobacco Vanille stage, then a Royal Oud stage. Very nice scent, Spicebomb.

    I just received a bottle of this today. WOW......I love it. I picked up the parcel from the post office, got back to the car and tore it open, as I couldn't wait to try it. I then spritzed a bit in the cap (as I always do), took a sniff.....and it blew me away.

    I know these 2 are not the same, but my initial reaction was that this reminds me of Sycomore. Does anyone else get that?
    IMO, if you like Sycomore, your will like this.
    100ml bottles are less than $200 now, and I think it is worth that. I wouldn't pay the original RRP for it though.

    my current top fragrance
    i think it gets most of it's hate (or is underrated) because of the word 'oud' in it's name
    if it was named something else like "Royal Tea" it would be another community hype IMO

    I take the fragrance for what it is and not it's name
    Don't judge a book by it's cover... fragrances likewise

    You can get this stuff under $1.50/ml now, and for that price this is amazing juice. At $4/ml I'd never consider it. Probably my favorite in the Creed line in terms of the best combo of scent/longevity/projection.

  16. #376

    Default Re: Creed Royal Oud

    I know this is an older thread that somebody revived, but I wanted to throw in that Royal Oud is a very "smooth" oud. I have sampled a number of Montale's Aoud line and others and Royal Oud seems like it has more of a mainstream appeal. Some ouds can be harsh - like being hit in the face with a sledgehammer, but RO is not harsh. If you think you don't like oud fragrances you should give Creed's a try - you might like it.

  17. #377

    Default Re: Creed Royal Oud

    RO is one of the few Creeds that I'm nuts for. HEAVILY underrated IMO. I think it wasn't named well, and that threw some people off, as I initially found the lack of blatant oud "smell" a bit odd for a fragrance with "oud" in the name. Over all though, probably one of, if not the smoothest thing(s) I've ever smelled.

    I own a bottle. Smells good, POOR longevity. Projection/Sillage good for 45min, then sits close to skin, then after 2hrs, nothing. I've never smelled an oud that didn't last 8hrs...Until now. How Creed manages to make ALL their fragrances disappear after 4hrs is beyond me. FB worthy if you get a really really good deal.

    I'm having a strange experience with Royal Oud. I originally loved it on paper strip. Sprayed it on my arm, still loved it after walking around for 30 minutes. It was, to me, like Tom Ford Oud Wood but with more substance and more character. So... I ended up buying a bottle before I left the store.

    Unfortunately something strange happens to it after about 5 hours - the fragrance "falls apart" and suddenly it smells like all its ingredients separated and you have a pool of various scents on your arm - none of which are "oud" or even the signature Creed ambergris they have in all their fragrances. The best I can describe it is like putting a cup of talcum powder on the counter and dosing it with 20, 30, 40 different fragrances, all disconnected and not related to each other - a complete mess (not quite as bad as V&R Antidote, but still a big mess).

    I really like the opening and the middle of Royal Oud, but after that 5 hour mark, I really really dislike it. I gave it couple more tries but had the same exact reaction after about 5 hours. Ended up giving the bottle away to a friend.

    I transfered my decant to another atomizer which does have a spritzer like a fire hose, but I've no trouble with longevity. Going into hour number 7 now and I can still smell this fine. It's not projecting, but I can still smell it. It's not broken down or anything.

    Of course this is not to discount the fact that Creed reps can be misinformed (or misleading). But the one at the store mentioned randomly that Royal Oud is being newly vaulted.

    Oh, please don't take it personal. I just remember when things would be said by these SA's that were patently false. Bois du Portugal was going to be vaulted - hasn't happened so far. Royal English Leather - it'll never be vaulted. Um, it was. Some SA's are truly in touch, won't give you the lies and marketing BS, some are just as liable to spread rumors or misinformation.

    I'm sitting on top of a nearly full bottle and a filled atomizer of Royal Oud; so I'm fine. But if this becomes the case, I'm sure the hoarders and collectors should rush. But do so with caution - find a great price, don't buy it at a higher rate only to find it cheaper later, after the date it was to be vaulted.

    We'll see. My SA of choice was spot-on in regards to Green Valley, Vetiver 48, Royal English Leather and a few others.

    If you do a search, you'll find that it's been confirmed multiple times in the past yet it's still available. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a second hand confirmation. We'll know it's been discontinued and/or vaulted when stores are no longer able to stock it. I see it online for $132 with free shipping from Amazon, and it's still available for full price at Neiman Marcus. If it had been discontinued, I'd expect discounter prices to have jumped, but they haven't. Keep in mind that a Creed "rep" is actually a sales associate, and the Creed SA at Neiman's works for Neiman's. Even Creed's own employees are not likely to be in the loop regarding corporate decisions. Want an example of that? Go to an Apple Store and ask about the iPhone 6. All they can do is guess.

    My advice? If you're debating a purchase, even if it's just for a backup, keep an eye on discounter prices. A $345 scent being sold for $132 tells us it's readily available. When you see a price that's too good to pass up, go for it. But in my experience, it's rarely wise to bite on rumors.

    ...that being said... I already own a bottle plus a backup.

    I didn't take it personally at all, I apologize if my post sounded like I did.

    I was being entirely serious, since I agree with your post completely. SAs can lie or be misinformed. I figured that perhaps you might be able to ask your own SA at some point, in order to double check .

    You're probably right. I did check older threads about this though, and most of them seemed to be outright rumors and misinformation. The only reason why I wanted to bring this to the community's attention is because I heard it directly from the Creed rep, who confirmed this without hesitation.

    And I did check discounter prices in order to find myself a backup bottle (which I'd want either way). I think you're spot on about that availability test, though I expect that the fragrance would remain available at low prices until a few months after the news catches on here (it would take even longer to get to the mainstream, I think).

    But I'd be very happy to discover that the rep was wrong. I do enjoy this scent very much.
