    I can tell you for certain there is no Oud, synthetic or otherwise, in the Amber Oud or Incense Oud. Black Oud, sold only in the Emirates, is just Incense Oud with Oud in it, what kind I don't know. Orpur means it comes from Givaudan, but that doesn't mean it's synthetic. Pure Oud uses 50% of it, Rose Oud uses 25% of it, and Black Oud probably uses it, too. But if Harvey Nick says it's Cambodian, it probably is. Except it's supposed to be endangered, so I don't know how all these bottles keep turning up in Saks and Bergdorff's. It does smell different from the rest of the Arabian Nights collection.

    It's past the limit I am willing to spend on anything. So much that I'm not even interested in trying it.

    Looks wonderful. Is it at the same price point?

    Well Bergdorf's website doesn't list Extreme Oud, Googling " 'extreme oud' bergdorf" gets no relevant hits, and the regular By Kilian bottles sell for the $395 at Bergdorf which is obviously a lower price than you should pay for a limited release.

    Extreme Oud is usually exclusive to Harvey Nichols, but Saks and Bergdorff started getting limited bottles. They are not listed on the website, because they are not regularly sold in the store. With Flower of Immortality from the Asian Tales collection and the new Musk Oud coming soon, I'm surprised to see these Extreme Ouds keep coming out. 1. It's warmer weather approaching and most people will be switching to lighter scents 2. Flower of Immortality must not be selling well 3. This is just salespeople getting a list together for when Musk Oud hits the shelves.

    Bergdorf does not list anywhere near what they offer in their stores on the website. If you want to find out what they have, call 212.339.3312 which is the direct dial to Men's Fragrances.

    I am very aware of what I purchased since I purchased it. I purchased extreme oud with the gold cap and which smells completely different from Pure Oud. I hope that clears that up for you.

    Ooo thanks, just blind bought a bottle.

    How would you describe the difference between Extreme and Pure? You say it smells completely different, I would have expected Extreme to just smell more oud-ey. Is this a huge Arabian incense and oud bomb?

    No, but it is more arabic than the rest of the Arabian Nights collection. Amber Oud and Incense Oud don't have any oud. Rose Oud is more traditional, but kinda femme. Pure Oud is meant to be a Western take on Oud. It has a lot of saffron to emphasize the bandaid medicinal quality of oud, some guiacwood to soften the edges and copaiba for incense wood notes. But it has poor longevity, while the Extreme Oud is better. It is a good effort from Calice Becker, and the floral notes and Cambodian Oud make this a standout. Though I get where those who complain about the cost are coming from. Given this house's track record of misleading customers about ingredients, and that you're paying for a satin-lined mahogany box and a bottle that you can't refill, I'd be leery of forking over $400.

    I got to try Extreme Oud today and it is really good. Smells ver similar to GAO by Xerjoff but is a little fuller and deeper. I like GAO as much as this and I put it up there with MFK Ouds, it is maybe better. Better than Pure Oud? I think so. It has a sharp saffron opening, deep Oud scent with that cold dry papyrus base that yields a slight metallic sheen. Highly recommended.

    How does it compare to Roja Dove Aoud?
    Because by far, Roja oud is the best oud creation by a western house
    at least for me.
