    oud (pure synthetic) is the new amber... LOL
    I'm looking forward to trying "Adidas Oud Energy Tough Team High Sport". Or maybe "Kenneth Polo Vintage Double Oud Sport Fresh Summer Edition"

    I bought a bottle at Harrods yesterday (having decided it was better and less than half the price of Armani Prive Royal Oud) and had it with me at the "An Evening of Leather" event at The New Cavendish Club in London - so was able to try it on a number of noses. Comments covered a "nice" to "gorgeous" spectrum with women tending towards the "gorgeous".

    Looks like it could be worth a try. Will definitely keep my eyes peeled for this.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    So does it smell like Tom Ford Oud wood, because the vanilla and rose with the wood sounds interesting.

    Ferrari Black and Ferrari Passion were awful. Synthetic as can be with a huge piercing metallic note. I would be nice if they could turn this house around, but in the past all they cared about was the name not the juice inside.

    This one also smells metallic and cold, almost despite the ingredients.

    Love their ad copy.

    Oud, or Agarwood. From the heartwood of this rare and prestigious tree comes the warm vibrant fragrance that is Ferrari Essence Oud, the new perfume for men. Deep, low, powerful, like the engine sound of a Ferrari car. Only for men with an instinctive feeling for the Prancing Horse.
    "Only for men with an instinctive feeling for the Prancing Horse." It sounds like some 18th century euphemism.

    That man looks a little prancey in the horses, no?

    or

    That bad porridge has left me with a feeling for the prancing horse!

    To me it starts off as a toned-down Black Aoud, then as it dries down I get a little bit of a YSL M7 vibe from it.

    While I don't rank it as one of the best oud-based fragrances, I think Ferrari did a decent job with this. Yes, I agree it is "synthetic" - but no more than Montale. Both sillage and longevity are above average.

    It would be a steal if this ever did show up at Marshalls/TJ Maxx.

    Went blind on a bottle of this and it arrived today. Gotta say, I am really liking this stuff. It's a dryer scent than I was expecting. Not much sweetness. Jury is still out on longevity but the projection is very good.

    So, finally, is it related to Uomo?
    I'm especially asking about the leather.
    Or, to reformulate: is there a noticeable leather note or is it more in the classic oud vein?

    I recently tried this one and I was fairly impressed the way Ferrari has handled this fragrance. This resembles M7 in a decent way and longevity is so damn good. But I'd not buy this until it comes on the discount shelves. The price tag is way too high for a Ferrari scent. Here the selling price is around $80 which is very high for a Ferrari. I would have bought this if it was around 30-45.


    We're still talking about this and Ferrari has launched another new fragrance called "Essence Musk".

    I have and it is great. Oud, incense, sweet rose. Longevity is a beast. What is not to love? Waiting for the 100ml bottle to show up around that $50 range.

    Aren't Ferrari fragrances normally around £10 or so?
