    Arabian Nights- Pure Oud

    I have tried the Amber and Incense..
    I like them but feel they are skin scents..
    Is it even worth sampling the others or should Iook for another house for oud?

    My experience is much different from yours, as I find Amber Oud and Incense Oud anything but skin scents. I guess when I bought them it had not been reformulated, and you may have been trying post-reformulated stuff.


    Personally, I really like all of them (except Gold Oud or Black Oud - never tried those)


    My favorites are (in order):
    Incense Oud
    Musk Oud
    Rose Oud
    Amber Oud
    Pure Oud

    I think all 5 of those are excellent and worth a look for sure. But if everything from this house has recently been watered down, then maybe all bets are off.

    I bought a sample of Rose Oud in the summer & didn't pursue it further.

    Don't get me wrong..
    I like some of them but don't think the price is according to the scent..
    Kinda like the Deng trade my Bulls made..
    a good 2 way player (offense and defense) but nothing spectacular..

    That's why the Bulls traded him-to save money for the future.

    I have tried almost all of them and Oud Incense and Musk Oud were standouts. projection and longevity for me were excellent.

    Maybe they don't project for you, but they project for me and I smelled them recently in Saks.

    I really like Amber Oud, but I feel it's way overpriced.

    The oud smells cheap to me. Try MFK for the real deal done western style.

    I bought several samples of Rose Oud, and really like it, but just never find the right occasion/outfit to wear it. Other than that, Intense Oud and Musk Oud were standouts to me.

    Incense, Musk, and Amber are my favorites.

    I've sampled most of them and wouldn't have bought a bottle at half the price. I found them to be average in every way.

    Tried all except the UAE exclusives Gold and Black. Musk Oud would have been a buy on smell and performance but the heavy handed synth musk gives me a raging headache.

    I sampled several of them at Aedes de Venustas. Very nice fragrances, but I also didn't find them measuring up to their luxurious looking black bottles. I spent a good hour there and had sprayed the Amber Oud on my arm early on. Within 30 minutes it was pretty much gone. Terrible longevity. I experienced the same with a few other Kilian fragrances, with the exception of "A Taste of Heaven." But given this... have not looked back.

    I was planning on trying some of these soon. I'm hoping they're not skin scents.


    I just realized I replied to Tony and he's been banned...odd.

    Tony T - Let's hope its just a short term "time out". I would miss him.

    I like all of the By Killian Oud's (haven't tried Apple Brandy). It is amazaing that there really isn't a bad one in the group - Favorite is Pure Oud.

    Agreed, as much as I wanted to love the by killian oud range, the oud is synthetic and linear. Once you try real oud done well in a fragrance, it's hard to accept a substitute. It would be great if he used real oud.

    I like the By Kilian ouds, not sure if I'd buy a bottle though. I like Rose Oud the most. You can find some good deals on their official samples from eBay. I have about four samples of RO and that would last me for a couple years at least. RO is a longevity and projection beast.

    Are you sure you want to be posting this information

    Guys, do us a favor and keep the "what happened to so-and-so?" posts to a minimum, would you -- it's super awkward on our end. Just keep in mind that there's a code of conduct in place, and when it's broken and complaints come in, we have to do something. I understand what it must look like at times, but do trust that there's nothing sinister or malicious going on. Buzzlepuff's assumption is correct, so feel free to continue the discussion

    All the Kilian Arabian Night series have very good projection & longevity.

    You should try Extreme Oud then.

    Sorry deadidol, it was posted in another thread where he pretty much confirmed it himself. No offence intended.

    Back to Kilian!

    The only one I've found to be ephemeral was that Bamboo Harmony one, and that was by design from what I can tell. The rest have all been pretty damn loud and persistent on me. There are several ouds that I've yet to try (the more exclusive ones), but I don't find the rest to be that oud-y in general.

    I really like Amber Oud, though something has stopped me buying a full bottle. I think it's almost a bit too 'safe' so something more interesting has always taken priority.
