    Interesting. I took the Roja online fragrance discovery test, and this was what the machine came up with for me...

    it's definitely a wild beast secured with a silk diamond studded leash......i smelt it in Harrods 3 weeks ago and was pretty impressed by its feral but tamed qualities. unfortunately didn't spray on my skin as was going to Henri Jaques and needed to make sure i have enough space to try all 250 of their compositions......only kiddin...managed to smell 50 before my nose got accustomed and thus couldnt smell no more. next time i go i will give it a blast

    Curious to see how it evolves. I see hedonist seems to like Ys Uzac.

    Incidentally, today I tried the remainder of the line.

    I smelled 6:

    Immortal Beloved
    Satin Doll
    Lale
    Metaboles
    Monodie
    Pohadka


    I liked Pohadka.

    2 smelled like other perfumes (Geranium pour Monsieur & Iris 39), the other 2 were just ok.

    Incidentally, I like the 2 limited edition and haven't smelled the BOM.

    How does Oud Ankaa compare to FM The Night? (That's the oudiest Western style perfume I've come across).

    I got my nose on Oud Ankaa. Strange concoction. One of, if not the most challenging oud perfumes I've come across. A very harsh opening that pierces the nasal passage. It has oud, and lots of it. I found it difficult to pick the region. This came across as more of an oud wood focused perfume than oil. The opening is *very* strong and accompanied by some sweetness. It reminded me of the mango pickle that is sold in Asian countries. That persisted for a long time. Longevity is good. I couldn't help but think of smoke and tar every time I took a sniff. There are no barnyard elements.

    The bottle is black with a round cap and came across a little tacky; it may have been hand made. The fragrance name seems hand painted. The sprayer emits a good amount. Price quoted was £625 for 50ml if I remember correctly.

    My first impressions based on a skin (hairy forearm) test are that this isn't for me - I hate turning an oud fragrance away. It is interesting, intriguing and powerful, but not very wearable. However on card it is a much less harsher experience and if I was basing my decision and review on the scented card I would consider buying it. The opening is mellower on card and the sweeter notes take a more prominent role. It is a pleasant scent on card.

    The Night is definitely the more wearable of the two and the better composition in my opinion.
