    Default Gucci Oud - New 2014 Fragrance

    Anyone gotten a chance to try it?

    http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/06/13...new-fragrance/

    Notes: Pear, Raspberry, Saffron, Bulgarian Rose, Orange Flower, Patchouli, Amber Musk, Oud.

    On the one hand, it's Gucci... probably the worst house of the big Italian designers. But it's interesting that they're taking on oud as well, and in a unisex fragrance. And they claim it's 100% natural oud. And it has pear in it. I'm confused... yet very, very curious...

    Never know, they have to hit gold somewhere in the road: will have to put in the test bracket...Thx for informing, as this perfumehouse last hit IMHO was Gucci pour homme but I've seen part 2 gets much loving from fragcomm ; so their take on a simulation Oud would be interesting what it will smell like...peace

    Yes this one sounds interesting, not just because of the notes but also because I don't think Gucci will stay down forever. They are bound to make something good at some point.

    I have a feeling this will be another joke that makes you laugh for an hour or two and then disappears and is never funny again but I'll try it anyway.

    Yup. As a HUGE admirer of GPH I (you should see how many backup bottles I have... lol) I hope they come back. It's just funny to see this after Made to Measure, probably their most blatantly generic, overly-branded fragrance yet. I wonder if they've moved people around in their fragrance division or something.

    Will definitely sample but I don't have high hopes, given Gucci's penchant for releasing utter rubbish over the past several years.

    I just sprayed some on about twenty minutes ago. Initial impression is light, synthetic, generic and the oud goes away quickly. You never know on the first try. So all I'm going to say is that it feels like you could spray on a pint of this and you'll offend no one. Seems to have some of the synthetic signatures of other recent Gucci releases.

    What a surprise. Thanks for your first impressions!

    Just bought this hours ago at the Gucci boutique while picking up another fragrance at Niemans so I haven't tried it out yet. Glad to know I won't be offending anyone by wearing this.

    Testing this one today. Mild oud with lots of rose and a pinch of saffron. To me the name is not accurate as I detect much more spiced rose than oud itself, lol.

    I totally disagree with those who find it synthetic. The rose here reminds me of The Different Company Rose Poivre, except the civet of course.

    I like it and it might be full bottle worthy for me.

    PS To me it's not too feminine. It's an unisex.

    Glad it's to your liking. I also think the oud is subdued in this one. The other notes intermingle well with it. Like it also.

    A follow up a few hours later. I stand by my initial impressions. The longevity with the oud is only 3-4 hours and then it becomes a mostly powdery skin scent. Still nice, but a reapplication might be necessary. I'll try it again in different weather.

    I'm not a highly-trained nose, I'll admit, and definitely not a fragrance snob - plus I'm a devoted rose lover and girly-man so this is the kind of unisex I enjoy. That said, this scent stopped me in my tracks in Selfridges and had me hunting down where the gorgeous smell was coming from. Haven't yet tried it on my skin (I was covered in Tom Ford Noir de Noir at the time) but on paper it's delicious. Spicy without being choking. I'm hoping I can test it properly and will add it to the want list if it works even slightly well.

    I think once you try it on your skin, you're going to walk out with a bottle in your hand.

    Hah, only if my relatives come through with the Christmas money! It's torture being a scent lover on a budget. And scentsamples haven't got it either, probably because Selfridges have sold out

    I tried this around early September in the Gucci boutique. It reminded me of David Yurman Oud. Very little oud, very little longevity, powedery sweet rose.
