    Default Have any of the boys Armani Privé Rose D'Arabie?

    Hiya boys. Are you enjoying your Sunday?

    Has anyone tried this Rose Oud? Or is it an Oud Rose? I tried it a couple of days ago and it grabbed my attention. I found it to be a beautiful rose, with smokey rubber, with that accord persisting throughout its fairly linear development.

    Has anyone tried it and if so will you share your thoughts? Including whether you think that it merits its fairly steep pricetag?

    Aw bums, typo in the title, can't edit it!!

    It's a really nice oud and rose.
    Coincidentally today I compared and constrasted it against Rosam by Histoires de Parfum.

    The Kilian is a lush, decadent rose and oud. Perfection in the opulent league whereas Rosam is perfection in the minimalist guild for oud and rose.

    And to answer your question. Yes the it does merit the steep price. The oud used is proper oud. The most proper I've smelled in a western perfume. But do smell Rosam before committing to anything.

    Nice to see you postin here

    I sampled it at a friend's house recently. This reminded me a bit of Royal Rose Aoud by Micallef but not as sweet.

    Thank You boys. I didn't realise that I wanted a Rose Oud till now! I love the idea of a minimalist one!!

    The other obvious rose and oud is Black Aoud.

    I much prefer Rose Oud by Kilian or Rosam at this point. Both the same genre but each sit on the furthest end of the spectrum from each other.

    I just dropped into this thread and I think that what the OP originally meant was Armani's Rose d'Arabie, not By Kilian's Rose Oud, if I'm not mistaken.
    Hedonist, you probably can answer this, as you live in UAE: I briefly smelled Rose d'Arabie while I was in London, and it struck me as a very high quality rose/oud/patch combo, but somehow it smelled similar to other mukhallats I have smelled before, such as Arabian Oud's. What do you think?
    And, does anybody think that this Rose d'Arabie will get down to discounter price like other Armani Privés have done? I really would like to get a FB...

    Thank You LloydLlewellyn. Yes I do mean Armani's Rose D'Arabie. As I said, I wasn't looking for a Rose Oud. Actually I was just browsing the Armani Privé line, and the Rose D'Arabie unexpectedly grabbed me! I would like a FB too, but I wanted to take Hedonists advice to try Rosam first, and I haven't been able to do that yet. And yes the Rose D'Arabie is pretty steep at £180/€220.

    Dior Oud Ispahan and Guerlain Rose Nacrée du Désert are also recent releases worth considering IMHO.

    I'm sampling Rose D'Arabie and I like it a lot but it's a very "in your face" scent. In by Killian's Dangerous Liaisons I smell also a nice rose (though it's said geranium). Now I don't know which one I will purchase. Any suggesions?

    I din't see your post till now!

    I went for the Armani Prive Rose D'Arabie and I do really enjoy it. I also really enjoyed the Rosam (sample). Incredible. An airy minerally fragrance, slightly medicinal, with much more saffron than the Rose D'Arabie. I've just recently got a sample of Black Oud. It's gorgeous too, bit more sweetly aromatic than Rosam or Rose D'Arabie. Some geranium in the Black Oud maybe?

    Despite their similarities I would have all three.

    Well I have Rose d'Arabie and Liaisons Dangereuses in my collection now and they are both masterpieces to me.

    I would have been happy to send you one before that became a criminal offence! Hopefully the situation will change soon.

    Its extremely fine quality from what ive heard.

    They recently launched a very fine scent, limited in production
    and only 100 pieces for sale priced at 4000 GBP, exclusive to
    heathrow.

    The bottles made out of crystal.

    I tried it but didn't love it. I prefer the rose in Dior Oud Ispahan since it is more gummy
