    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
