    Default Making TF OUD WOOD last longer with addition of ow byproducts.

    I've gotten a sample of Thameen Carved Oud in hopes of a longer longevity but for me, it was not substantial enough to consider.

    Also its hard to beat the "original" scent of oud wood which imo which stands on its own.

    I opted for the 100ml anyway as all the samples i've had wither away fast and that goes for the full bottle as well.

    So for any other oud wood fans, do any of you get the deodorant and/or body spray/oil in addition of the fragrance?
    If so, does it help with longevity?

    Im more so leaning towards deo than the others.

    Never experimented with anything like that to see if it helps longevity, but if i did i think the first one i would try is the lotion.

    You may just have to use extra sprays.

    I've used extra sprays, on clothes, almost everything you can imagine....

    Went spray happy and was in a closed window car and my misses could not smell it to the fact it would choke someone out if I did the same amount of sprays with say: layton, bdc edp....

    I don't think its an anosmic thing but who knows.

    Agree.
    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 have a hard time believing this is an official Tom Ford bottle, on clothing it should be clearly detectable and also by others.

    I think you are experiencing olfactory fatigue!

    Nope. Batch B59 bought in store at Bloomingdale's Palo Alto with a VERY knowledgeable SA. It's a silver label so maybe thats why... the reformulations.

    Reformulation or not if you can’t smell it even on clothing get your money back. They mind as well knowingly sell you water for the retail price imo, sounds very scetchy and not worth your time or money.

    Did never use scented fragrance products from this perfume line, but on the other hand also have to admit not having had any longevity nor performance issues with TF Oud Wood so far, at least not especially during the few testings of this.
    However, if would be dissatisfied by the performance of this AND wanting regularly wear this at better performance levels, would eventually try to find a solution for increasing its projection and longevity, even though not certain if the scented products of this fragrance line would be a solution for getting more from this one.

    I agree. Oud Wood is quite long lasting. It's also linear, which causes people to get olfactory fatigue when wearing it.

    Olfactory fatigue is something everyone experiences in many situations, but nobody realizes it. Go into a movie theater. When you arrive, the smell of popcorn seems overwhelming, but by the end of the movie, you don't even notice it anymore. That's an example of olfactory fatigue. When you wear a fragrance that is linear, it's easy for your nose (your brain, really) to get used to it and ignore it. "Get used to it" is another way of saying Factor It Out. Olfactory Fatigue is a self defense mechanism.

    Yes, agree this works for me with OW. You need a sufficient level of basenotes, once that’s reached then they will push for 6-8 hours. 6-8 sprays is good. 3 sprays you’re kidding yourself.

    I apply a couple of sprays. Lasts all day

    Definitely get above average longevity on OW. No trickery required. My first decant may have been pre reform or an early reform but my current decant would definitely be from newer bottles that people say has terrible performance.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
