    Arrow Has anyone tried the body shop's amber oud ? Wow :)

    Hey folks as the topic says it...
    I actually tried this one today and it was so nice that i ended up buying a bottle....
    Its an EDP version....
    Recently i visited Middle East and this scent just transformed me to that place...
    I closed my eyes and it was like I'm standing in a chilled mall right in the middle of hot desert and a women in the abaya (cloak) passes by me heavily dosed by amber and then suddenly the doors of the mall opened and the warm and dry air rushed in with the aroma of oud...
    I was speechless....
    I think that ive found my signature scent....
    please if anyone has tried it do share...
    thnx

    PS. sorry guys this was the best i could do to describe the fragrance...

    It might be one of those 'regional' products which might explain why no one's seen it here. It's a shame because Oud is well and truly mainstream and international now.

    Hahaha your recollection is hilarious and true.

    But no the perfume neither has amber nor Oud in it. Well some basic level ambroxan maybe.

    But i do smell amber, oud and spices in it....
    oud is definitely there....
    it smells very similar to Rassassi's Mukhalat al Oud....
    i didn't get the synthetic notes in there....
    or maybe its just my nose....

    I smelt this in London recently. It was owned by someone who brought it in from the Middle East. It definitely is not available in the UK. The OP's topic heading says it all. Wow! was my initial reaction. It is a simple ambery OUD composition, but here there is beauty in simplicity.

    If this shows up in malls in the US then oud will officially have gone mainstream. It will then jump the shark when Bath and body works comes out with oud flavored keychain sized hand sanitizer.

    I just found this in a Body Shop in England. It's really not bad. Starts out a little rough, but then dries down very warm and even a bit skanky. I have to say I much prefer it to the By Killian Amber Oud.

    Has anyone else smelled it?

    This sounds very interesting. Every now and again Body Shop comes out with something sensational. I am a huge fan of their Pink Pepper Fragrance. Is this now available all over Europe?
    Thanks for sharing and posting about this !
    I´ve learned so much from my mistakes that I´m thinking of making some more.....

    I hadn't heard of a pink pepper fragrance - do tell!

    Yes, The Body Shop does come out with some excellent things. I thought their Rose Oud was really impressive, although I'm no expert. I just thought it smelled great.

    Did not try it so far, but thanks for bringing this up, certainly way up high on my test list next time I visit one of their outlets.

    A friend got me on to Pink Pepper about 7 years ago. It had already been discontinued, but I managed to track it down on the net. It´s a wonderfully blended, quality fragrance. Warm,sweet and peppery. I even prefer it to Piper Nigrum and the pepper fargrance in the Hermes boutique range, (forgotten the name ?). Thanks for the tip re Rose Oud...will have to try it, not to mention Amber Oud !!

    I'm a big fan of TBS Pink Pepper perfume oil as well. I was very disappointed to see that it's been discontinued.

    I also like their Woody Sandalwood, Lemon Tea, Japanese Musk and White Musk perfume oils, although the only one I currently see on the US website is the White Musk. TBS used to have a wide range of perfume oils, but now seem to have very few.

    Too bad the ouds are not available in the US.
    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Rose Oud, Amber Oud. Hmm, what next... Incense Oud? I'm reminded by "by Kilian's Arabian Nights" collection...

    Indeed. Luckily for me, though, I don't like the By Kilians, and the Body Shop ouds are only £10.

    I've been posting the Body Shop some requests to get Pink Pepper back in market. But no... Could anyone find a place to make a common petition for the subject? If we got some tens of thousands of names, maybe they'd bring it back?
    Everywhere in net I see people missing it..

    (And the writer of the petition could be someone who speaks English as mother tongue. - Missing some words..)
