    Default Wearing Black Aoud for the First Time

    I really like it, but it's striking in the fact that my entire house now smells like it. This stuff should come with a warning label.

    Yup - that's Black Aoud Not sure if your bottle is old or a recent buy - the older ones were even more strong. 1 spray under clothing was more than sufficient.

    It's pretty potent.

    One of the first niche fragrances I tried when I first started this hobby. I still remember the first time I wore it - just a dab from the sample vial and it was nuclear, but so good. Still too strong for me to ever wear but it's an interesting animal.

    I adore Black Aoud, but never came around to buy it. Would love to have a bottle of this and Attar in the future.

    The stuff is lethal. I mean eye watering lethal. I couldn't get on with it so I sold it a few years back.

    Aaah, the first time wearing Black Aoud, I bet it felt a bit like this:

    In my opinion that's a good thing. I really love Black Aoud, but being older my tastes run towards the stronger smelling frags.

    Have never tried it but it certainly sounds like a fragrance to steer right away from for me.
    Yuk!

    To me Black Aoud smells like old fashioned rose. Anyone gets that?

    I get the old fashioned rose, for sure. I currently have a box of rose flavored Turkish delight. Black Aoud reminds me of that.

    You can probably easily find both reasonably price at online discounters.

    Been rocking Black Aoud since 2011 and have barely made a dent on the 50ml - absolute beast! I have trouble wearing it during the day, but it's my signature going out fragrance in the frigid cold.
