Royal Oud has ZERO projection, 1 hr. after 3 spritzes, lift my collar and take a deep breath, faint. an hour later, 3 more spritzes, an hour later, nothing, 3 more spritzes...I have applied 1ml total in 4hrs and It is a mere memory on my shirt. I read a review by somebody who praised everything about this, and said 10hr. longevity. Obviously a Creed-head b/c NO ONE can get 10hrs from this.


    If you say so, I own By Kilian Pure Oud and Montale Dark Aoud and while those are two very different frags, you can tell the wood used is at least from the same family, while Royal Oud's drydown is cedar-ish which to me smells completely different.

    Royal oud is a very solid scent, also has great longevity on my skin.

    Good Taste, gentlemen! I bought Creed Spring Flower this evening and I love it! It's not linear, thank goodness, but it doesn't project as well, like some say the Creed Royal Oud projects! Maybe they should develop a Creed Oud for women!

    Yea i love the scent but wish it would project a bit more after about 2-3 hrs. It does last >8 hrs on my skin as i still smell it on my clothes and faintly on my skin after the work day if i put it on around 8pm. I smell it several days after on my clothes when i am getting ready to do laundry.

    The Oud is very subtle and on me the whole fragrance is a tad unexciting.

    I love it.
    I do detect an Oud in it, but a very discrete and rounded Oud.
    I also smell an earthy rooty spicy Vetiver in it, that I also get from CDG Wonderwood, L'Occitane Vetyver and Encre Noir.

    All in all I enjoy Royal Oud.
    Wish it came in 120 ml version for the same price though
    I get a solid 8-10 hours from my 75 ml Royal Oud.

    One of my favorites. The whole thing smells more like a tea-based fragrance to me. The Oud + Cedar + pepper gives it a bit of a Tea for Two type of scent to me (but much better). I get pretty good longevity from it, but is stays close. A bit subdued - good for the office, not clubbing.

    I like it as well, but I feel that the price is way more than what it should be worth. Especially since this is a 2.5 oz, there's no reason why it should cost more than a 4 oz Creed bottle ($325 vs $315). IMO, it's even over priced in the grey market.

    On a side note, I think I'm one of the few that is reminded of Tobacco Vanille when I wear Royal Oud. I get a pipe tobacco vibe.
