    Default Roja Dove - Amber Aoud is weak?

    Title says it all, I'm currently sampling Amber Aoud (trusted seller with a big collection) and it's AMAZING... for the first hour... 2 hours in it's a skin scent. 4-6, completely gone. Is this normal? What other Roja would you recommend? I currently have Midsummer Dream and I'm ordering Creation-E extrait. Both lasted well on me and definitely out lasted Amber Aoud.

    You wouldn't be the first person i've heard to wish Amber Aoud lasted a bit longer. Lovely while it's around though.
    Don't stank.

    Yeah, absolutely love AA, but wish it lasted longer too. It does go for about 5-6 though for me. My Creation E extrait lasts at least 18 hours!

    My experience with Amber Aoud is completely the opposite of the OP. Longevity is excellent for 12 hours at least. One of his best, IMO. A great blend of rose, oud, amber and saffron.

    I haven't worn mine in a bit, but I'm pretty sure I was getting above average projection for around 6-8 hours, although mine is an older bottle. Not all of Roja's scents are longevity and projection monsters a good number of his fragrances are subtle but have good to excellent longevity at least on my skin, which is fine for me, I'm not always looking for my fragrances to announce my arrival.

    You should sample Reckless Pour Homme, as my bottle is quite potent, also Elysium PHC seems to have excellent projection and longevity.

    I have a sneaky suspicion (or maybe hope) that come cooler weather, AA will last longer for me. I feel like I’m sweating it off in this summer heat. I’ve only had my bottle about a month, and previously in cooler weather, I only had a small sample vial to swipe from.

    I’ve sampled Amber Aoud & the other 2 several times & had the same poor results in sillage & longevity.
    Sampled the Absolue Precieux concentrations & got way better performance.
    Decided I’m gonna get the trifecta in the Absolue Precieux concentration.

    Wow, that would be an amazing purchase that I’d love to make as well........sadly, the bank account will probably never have that much expendable money

    The few times I have tried it I got very good longevity from it.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I've heard older paper labels have better performance

    Same for me, Creation E extrait is insane on my skin

    The 3 Aouds - Aoud, Musk Aoud and Amber Aoud - are all well known for not lasting for forever and a day. Of the 3 Amber Aoud lasts the longest between 6-8 hours on skin. It will last a week or more on clothes though. I do 1 shot center chest and problems are solved
