    The use of Bay leaf in this was brilliant. That said CdG Palisander is somewhat similar for a lot less dough.

    Interesting! The problem is that Comme Des Garcons is too often overlooked. Palisander was composed by Francoise Caron (responsible for Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile, Hermes Eau D`Orange Verte, Le Labo Fleur d`Oranger 27, Thierry Mugler Angel La Part des Anges and Angel Garden Of Stars Violette Angel among others) and Yann Vasnier (Tom Ford Santal Blush, Divine's L'Homme de Coeur , L'Ame Soeur, L`etre Aime Homme, Marc Jacob's Bang Bang, Le Labo Aldehyde 44, Keiko Mecheri Gourmandises among others) but people seems to stick with what is more hyped...

    My sample arrived, surprisingly generic smelling for a Kilian fragrance and not a trace of oud to be found, at least not by my nose. Quite a basic, light, safe and forgettable powdery vanilla "amber", I don't really see the point. $400 for this seems a bit embarrassing.

    Interesting, but not ok, no Big Deal in my opinion (I am a Kilian's supporter, just being honest here)

    I have read they use Givaudan OrPur, which I understand to be a filtered real oud. Where did you get the info that they use what you stated?

    Anyway, I think this is a very subtle and understated frag... just as good as Rose Oud and Incense Oud and similar in style. It's not something that's going to wow you, but IMO it is a very good frag.

    Got my sample of Amber Oud in the mail last week, and I wore it. Amber Oud reminded me a lot of YSL M7 (original formulation-haven't tested the reformulated one), but with a hint of vanilla added. Very good and well-blended, but not bottleworthy (especially when YSL's website sells M7 for 1/4 of the price per ounce of Amber Oud).

    Out of the Kilians that I have tried, Straight to Heaven remains my favorite (and my all-time favorite scent), with Back to Black a close second.

    Lucky Scent is selling 50 ml bottles of Amber Oud for nearly $400! Anyone know why it's so expensive? I was able to find refill bottles of it selling for $175.

    I received a sample from Kilian last week. I sprayed once and I found it very nice. The problem is that I misplaced my sample. I have no idea where it is. Whaaaa!!!!! There is one more place where I could have stored it. If I can't find it I will have to rely on Luckyscent.

    Hope you find it. I don't think LuckyScent is selling samples of this yet.

    Yeah, I know. Just thought it was interesting how expensive the lacquered box is. Most of the other Kilian boxed fragrances are around $225-$250.

    Maybe I don't know where to look but I did not saw any news about this on BN: By Kilian Amber Oud Wins The 2013 Indie Fragrance Foundation Award

    First Place: By Kilian Amber Oud - it was my favorite from the Arabian Nights collection (I saw somewhere mentioned that there were/are 5 fragrances in this collection even tho on By Kilian site are mentioned only 4: Rose oud, Pure oud, Amber oud, incense Oud)
    Second Place: Jul et Mad Terasse a St. Germain - I could not find any information about this on fragrance directory but looked on their site and noticed that their fragrances are a bit expensive
    Third Place: Le Cherche Midid Eau D’Hiver - I could not find any information about this on fragrance directory
    Fourth Place: Carner Barcelona Rima XI
    Fifth Place: Ramon Monegal Cuirelle

    What means indie?
