    Default Real Oud & Rose Combo Fragrances

    Hey Everyone, I've recently purchased Dusita Oudh Infini and already own funkier stuff like Ensar EO No 1, RaniaJ Oud Assam, Phoenicia RealOud...Just bought Roja UAE...

    I like stuff that's in between these three but more funkier leaning. Also, I prefer it to be Eau de Parfum or Extrait...I'm not a huge fan of wearing attars.

    What are your best REAL rose and oud combination scents suggestions that are on a little bit of the funkier side with the use of real oud?

    I can't do the white/yellow florals in Bortnikoff. Is Zemifra one that's more of a true rose-oud?

    Never got to try this one...only V2 which smelled really odd and had this weird plasticy vibe going on. Wish I had some of the original stuff. But, if I do ever find it I'm sure it'll be at an exorbitant price!

    zemfira has a fresh rose note and an oud that in my opinion lacks a punch , if you want some funk look elsewhere

    Since you like it funkier, I suggest you save up & bid for Areej Le Doré Inverno Russo IF it ever comes up for auction. But with animalistic civet & musk in the picture it’s definitely not your typical ‘oud & rose’ duet.

    I wish I remember trying this one a while ago. I don't think I'll be in bidding range the way these auctions are going for older Areej fragrances!

    Really looking for either Extrait or EdPs. I'm not a fan of wearing attars of pure oud oils.

    also try Aoud by Roja. a crystalline-like clean oud note, but paired with an exceptional rose to create the best overall oud/rose combo there is, IMO...

    Strangelove NYC's Dead Of Night. Personally I hated it, but i don't much care for Ouds - which might mean Oud-lovers would love it. It is definitely on the funky side.

    I may be off on the fully "real" oud, but Ex Idolo 33 is my fav rose-oud. The oud smells real, the rose is lush, it's inexpensive, and honestly smells like a dilute version of The Night, ie - actually wearable.

    This one sounds nice but I could probably buy a plot of agarwood trees next to a rose garden for this $$$ wow! Crazy price for a Malle.

    It's not worth it when you have much better oud creations from independent niche/indie houses.

    As a further interpretation of this combo by some of the more famous fragrance houses, Songe d'un Bois d'Ete among the Guerlain exclusives did cover both notes quite nicely, richly and enjoyably

    Yes, this is one of the best rose oud fragrances I've tried so far, though it's not very funky. It's like an improved version of Black Aoud.

    No counter to the crazy price statement, as while I own it I definitely agree. As to the much better Oud compositions from niche/indie houses, of course this is subjective but I have sniffed many that get a lot of love here and still haven’t found any that fit the bill to my preferences. It is hard to beat the great perfumer Dominique Ropion, when he has a large budget to work with under excellent direction from Malle.

    I agree, Ex Idolo 33 is an excellent smelling rose/oud that is highly recommended and one of the best value rose/real oud compositions available, but it is extremely smooth, sans any funk to my nose.

    To be honest I would step out off the oud train for a second, and suggest Rising Phoenix's Musk Rose Attar. ESPECIALLY if you like Malik Al Taif. It does Malik Al Taif better than Malik Al Taif. There's just no better creation for the "rose + animalic" category than Musk Rose Attar as far as i'm concerned.

    x10. If I were to lose my mind and have a one bottle collection, this would more than likely be my fragrance.

    Dixit and Zak Charbagh.
    Rasasi Boruzz Rooh al Assam (Oud isphanan with real oud).

    Another vote for Musk Rose attar (which also comes in spray format, 15ml).

    Sample Bortnikoff Zemfira, it has a prominent sandalwood note as well though.
    Do you even niche and/or artisanal?

    I love Songe, but I get not rose in Songe (and the Oud is synthetic).

    Did you mean Rose Nacree?
    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.

    I want to try the spray of Musk Rose attar but damn, $300 for 15ml is a little pricey
