    I will be VERY surprised if your wife likes it, I think Oud 27 is one of the few very challenging fragrances. I personally couldn't wait to wash it off me when I sampled it. However it sounds like you're enjoying your bottle, so perhaps you shouldn't put too much emphasis on what other people think of this scent, on you. I'm just saying...

    Maybe I'm crazy. Maybe I am a bit slow but uh... well we are talking about my wife, and since we live together, it is kind of important that it doesn't repel her. But hey... maybe that's just me, eh?

    Great idea Jack. Maybe she'll associate the scent with gifts. Ha!

    I'd say Oud27 beats MKK in the musky field. But a proposal: why don't you spray your wife so you can enjoy the smell on her?

    Btw, the body cream is equally good, luxuriously creamy. And musky.

    Oud 27 is more challenging than MKK for sure! Blech not my scene but I respect the cajones behind releasing it.

    I found my Oud27 sample really easy to wear, it did have the funky note going on I suppose, but it was more of a dusty/murky smell rather than anything really ominous.
    Great purchase though, I'll have to wear my sample a little more to get my head round it properly.
    I just don't really understand Le Labo I think, the whole, leading note in the title is actually not the leading note...

    i have given it two full wearings - i don't it find that animalic... petroleum, bandates, heineken.... thats it.
    as far as wear, i even think it would appeal to horny teenagers... not in the way it would appeal worn by models during a show. women can wear this too. for me versatile scent huh? ... it is the first scent i wear that could make you project either very trashy, junky, or on the other edge - extravagant and poise.
    scent that needs further exploration by me.

    it is not sexy, or at least not sensual... just something to strognly show up with, ... but if you can. demanding scent to the wearer.

    I'm in way too deep. I don't think I am able to smell scent anymore in the same way a layman would. I'm completely off the reservation.

    i forgot to mention one of the most important things... the scent has poor longevity on me. 3 hours at the most.

    Agreed. Got that after 1.5 hours in terms of how faint it became. Beautiful but faint. I normally care, but in Oud 27's case, I'm blind. I'll take whatever it gives me.

    Oud 27 by Le Labo - One is initially overwhelmed by an animalic tango. A foul and sour oud partnered with an earthy, floral saffron give life to a miasmic melange of stale urine, foetid smoke, raw leather and slimy sweetness. For a time, this vomitous blend rankles, and is spewn to the rehabilitating middle. Atlas cedar, with its balsamic and evergreen woodiness, coupled with a refreshing incense suffocate the putrid piss and stenchy fumes, as well as rehabilitate the saffron with creamy and honey aspects and the oud with a bright and fresh aura. The awaiting base with its complementary guaiacwood imparts its pleasing smokiness and candied smoothness, aided by a mildly peppery and herbaceous patchouli. A prosaic drydown ensues. This edgy composition lacks projection and longevity.

    Even though I find the soggy diaper note in Oud 27 to be quite vivid, this is also the only urine-scented fragrance that makes me sort of understand the appeal of urinous notes. I think it's quite a good fragrance.

    Hmmm... that's a pretty good review!

    I've owned Oud 27 for about 9 months now and it's been my most expensive purchase. I love it but I have to say it hasn't gone down well with my family - particularly my son. As for friends, about half like it and half think it stinks.

    PS. I wouldn't describe it as 'musky' at all.

    Not to dampen your spirits but, if your wife/friends like it......you could knock me over with a feather. I have never come across such a fragrance that can turn my stomach the way it did

    WMIM,

    I also just discovered Oud 27. Last night actually. And my reaction was typical.... horrified at first, then in love with it after 3 hours.

    On a philosophical level, this is why I love this hobby. Just when I think I've smelled everything, something comes out of left field and completely floors me with unexpected surprise. Even if you don't enjoy the smell of Oud 27, you should be happy it exists.

    Oud 27 challenges your tastes and perceptions and in the end, it altered my scope of preference and taste. I love the raw dirty horse-stable like musk going on here, with the woods that come in after a while, deux ex machina style, to save the day.

    I am in deep as well. Putting in an order for 100ml bottle this afternoon.
