    Default R'oud Elements by Kerosene

    Not sure if anyone noticed this?

    Looks like Kerosene has a fragrance of his own - time to show our support with a few $$ hey!

    Here's the vid:

    Would love to hear some opinions on this. It's always interesting to see how non-professional perfumers' compositions compare to those more classically trained.

    Found R'Oud Elements by Kerosene on Etsy.com for $75 and the following description

    'An edp with notes of Oud, Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla, Lavender, Iris and Orange Bitters.

    R'oud Elements has a smoldering oud opening that will tingle your nose hairs, then after about twenty minutes, settles down to a velvety oud and lightly spicy woody scent. Masculine and warm.

    The 100ml bottle is painted by myself with automotive grade paint and clearcoat.'

    Congrats to Kerosene for actually getting a scent out there. I know a lot of people talk about it and dream about it and it's a huge challenge to actually compose one.

    I'm really curious if he used any pre-made bases or pre-made fragrance oils (these are always accords, such as "green tea" or "black rum".. I'm assuming he used a synth oud base such as Givaudan's Black Agar base), or if he did it the hardcore way and actually composed it entirely of hand chosen single aroma chemicals.

    I have a sample coming soon. A YouTube fragrance reviewer named WallyStinx is also doing a split.

    Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the support.

    I’m not into marketing so I’m really just going to let the people that try the fragrance be the voice for it. Like all scents, it’ll either be liked or not. Of the wood notes, there’s about 10 of them, it just so happens that there’s a higher concentration of oud notes in the formula, thus the reason for the name. I really think this is middle ground for an oud-based fragrance. There is a blend of pure oud oil and some synthetic oud. It took a while to get the combination right and I also wanted to keep the price reasonable at the same time. As most people are aware that oud is really expensive stuff. And the bottle alone takes a bit of time. But I wanted it to be professional looking. And if this kicks off, customer service will be priority #1.

    Personally, I’ve never been attracted to really bombastic scents, so I hope the formula is strong enough for most people. Depending on the feedback, I just may need to amp it up. But it’s really hard to judge longevity when it’s freezing outside and everyone’s skin is dry as a bone here.

    I also have about six scents that are in serious works. Don’t know when they’ll be ready though, but please stay tuned.

    Thanks again,
    Kerosene (John)

    I'll see how it holds up for projection and longevity in the Florida heat.

    Hi, Kerosene. Are there any fragrances that inspired your construction of R'oud Elements?

    Good question. Actually, like with my writing (I write mostly short stories), they seem to be inspired off real life events, but I actually don’t read a ton. I try not to get influences if possible, but obviously we are always influenced by things unknowingly. With scents, I have an idea on a blend that would work nice. Kinda like with cooking and I build off a couple of ingredients. I cook using a lot of spices, so I think that plays a large role in the creative process. Also, mood and climate is helping dictate some direction. If it’s cold outside, I naturally gravitate toward warm notes, ect.

    My goal is that each fragrance will stand on their own and hopefully not remind you of something you’ve worn before.

    Don’t know if I answered your question….I can sometimes just ramble randomly.

    Here's a first impression video from another fellow basenotes member Frunkinator. I'm liking what I'm hearing a cross between Creed, Bond No.9, and Thierry Mugler.

    I got a sample from Kerosene...Thanks Kerosene!

    I am not at all good at describing scents but I get something sweet at the beginning that goes away fairly quickly. I am not sure what the note is at the beginning, I recognize it but I can't figure out what it is. Then I get a great deal of a sweet oud mixed with some other woods, maybe come vetiver but the oud is dominant. Not an animalic oud but a sweet oud. Does not really remind me of anything I have smelled before, definitely a masculine scent and good for the winter. Besides the change that comes for me at the beginning I don't get much of a change as time progresses. Unlike the video review above, I don't get any kind of clean laundry vibe and maybe only a hint of musk. Mostly I get various woods mixed with oud with a touch of sweetness that I simply can't put mu finger on.

    I put this on about 8 hour ago and it is still alive on my skin. I look forward to reading other reviews of this because, to be honest, I am lame at describing scents and notes. I can say that I love this and it is unique for me as it does not remind me of anything else I have sampled. Yes, I am considering a buy in this. A great one IMHO and I hope more people sample this one.

    Congratulations Kerosene and thank you. .
