    Default Extreme Oud - by Kilian

    Extreme Oud by Kilian. Exclusive to the uae.

    It's a limited edition.


    It's dense. It's opposite of what Olivia Giacobetti creates. It's not transparent. It's oud plus cardamom plus saffron plus some sort of rich oil resin. The cardamom is not astringent though and the saffron not aromatic and the oil not too viscous . It's blended perfectly. It's what Ajmal creates as mukhallats. But this on a different level.

    It's the closest to real arabic Oud oil in perfume form from a western house that I've ever smelled (this and pure Oud).

    This is what I imagine an upscale Arabic perfume house would create to reflect the opulence of Arabia. This exact creations in terms of notes and accord.

    The only other competition is Mona di Orio's Oud. But its only competition in terms of price otherwise in terms of Oud quality and blend, there is no comparison. And I actually like her Oud.

    There is no mention of it online. Not even a whisper.

    $500/100 mL no?

    That's not... too horrific... is it? I'd love a 10 mL decant mind.

    Yes it's only in 50ml media.

    If you've smelled Pestum Rose, there is a mjote in the opening, like a catalyst to the main notes. Sort of oily.
    I get that but it's not as concentrated.

    I forgot to mention there's a suitable amount of amber too. But amber acts as an intricate carpet below the saffron, cardamom and Oud. It's there but very embedded.

    I wonder why it's a UAE exclusive?
    Maybe because of price?

    No because I'm not very interested in oud perfumes. I much prefer using real oud oil.
    But im tempted... ..

    I bought a 5ml spray sample from Surrender To Chance. I like the Arabian Nights collection from this house, my favorite being Pure Oud. Saks Fifth Avenue (flagship) will be getting a limited number of bottles next month, and I expect many will presell. But I don't want to commit to a full bottle. Extreme Oud is a decent leather scent, smelling like fresh polished boots.

    The small batch for the US is sold out. It's only available in the UK now, no refills, no samples, will probably never be a big release owing to the scarcity of the Cambodian Oud.
