    Default ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Absolue Pour Le Soir

    I am giving it ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ stars. I have a meeting today and as you know, I met Oud 27 yesterday and as badly as I want to wear it, it feels a bit too untrained and raw for todays meeting. That said, I'll be wearing APLS since it gives me the naughty scent Oud 27 satisfies, but with it's smoother and sophisticated base. I am loving both.

    I own a small bottle of Oud 27 and can't stand it. Too much synthetic stench. I wear "M" 3-4 times a week. Seems like on M's down days I'm reaching for Absolue pour le soir or Oud Luban. All the choices I have and I'm down to three in rotation. I'm sure Spring and Summer will change that.

    Fully agreee with the choice. Oud 27 is definitely dirty - a no no for business situation. APLS is exactly as you say, smooth and refined, in standard smooth Kurkdjian's style.

    It's quite nice, but personally i reach for MKK before this when i am in the mood for some sweet animalic goodness.

    It's quality for sure, and very nice dry down...not sure how easy it is to wear though, i have some samples and i can't seem to find the right time to wear it. Any good feedback frmo others when wearing this? Compliment getter?

    It has a rough opening but if you can hold onto your horses for forty minutes it drysdown to a really nice sweet honey accord and smells really nice. But it is a bumpy ride getting there.

    It's the most prominent in the opening IMO. I've been told it's what gives it that "dirty" (and what some would term "pissy") start that eventually smooths out. Similar more to the honey accord used in Fumerie Turque than the kind used in say a Killians, ELdO, or more widely friendly versions of a honey note. It took me a while to place that smell too, until I read up on it a bit. I also thought that I couldn't smell the honey, until I realized that I was smelling it, I just didn't realize that what I was smelling was honey.

    Let me join the bandwagon with my 2000th post.
    I was really skeptical about this, and thought it would be a sweet, orange blossom ridden laundry musk. Kurkdjian and I don't usually get along.

    But it was not, and it was great. For me the heroes are benzoin and sandalwood. Really top notch sandalwood both in smell and implementation. Honey is beautiful and as well, and I have no trouble identifying it. Right there on top, and well into the heart. No urine.
