Reviews of Gold Rose Oudh

Of course , as everyone knows, there's a gazillion rose/oud fragrances out there , but to my nose this one is among the top of the pack...thick , rich and opulent rose... not shy , comes on nice and strong...whether its synthetic or real , the oud note is tremendous and has no bandaid or medicinal smell...a very dark goth rose fragrance...thats the main focus , and its not bad at all...all the other notes add nice accents , but nothing really stands out... The accords that the fragrance transitions through are extremely entertaining...if you're looking for a rose/oud to add to your wardrobe I highly recommend sampling this...

Oudh, right off the bat. It overpowers this, for me. Patchouli, then an earthy, dirt undertone moves in. The rose is smothered for a time, then it shines. I get lots of pepper. The rose is kind of "dark" here. The base reveals a bit of sweetness with amber and woody sandalwood. Gold Rose Oudh reminds me of quite a few other perfumes I've either sampled or I currently own.

A rose oudh that is better than the synthetic smelling Montales and Manceras. I doubt they use real oud but whatever they use does not smell as synthetic as others in similar price range.
For those who want to try a good middle eastern rose oud for cheap, this is it. If you like this you can move on to real rose and real oud.

Co-worker commented that something "smelled like her grandpa". Yeah, that was embarrassing.

There is a little bridge to cross here – Gold Rose Oudh could easily have come from Montale’s line-up, the oud in particular is familiar from Montale rose-oud pairings. Over it? Ok, then we can talk about this in its own right.
With a name like that, I fully expected GRO to be an ode to olfactory bling. But while it has its tacky and trashy side, it is also a properly realized composition, not just gold-plated posturing.
The power trio at its core is an attar rose, oud that is warm and rounded (as opposed to piercingly dry and spiced-up) and an overdose of patchouli. Chouli-phobes need not fear, however, as the hippy juice here morphs and blends with the other two players rather than asserting itself, offering mainly intensity to the rose’s sweetness and a kind of marzipan-like quality to the proceedings. There’s a light trickle of something honeyed around it all, which weaves in and out of one’s perception. The other main note is a dusty sandalwood aromachemical (also common to many Montales) that comes up from behind into full visibility in the later stages; it works well with the rose and oud, offering stability and a bit of distance to the intensity, so it is not surprising that it is so often used.
Gold Rose Oud is strong, but it does not overpower, it is dense when sniffed up close but not when perceived as part of the perfume’s throw. Ultimately it treads familiar, tried and tested territory, but if it is territory that you haven’t explored before this is as good a place as any to start.

On my skin oud and patchouli are the two dominant players that constitute the dual leitmotif defining this scent and remaining present throughout its whole development. Initially bergamot is added, but it can only provide a bit of initial freshness amongst the two main players. The patchouli is a top-of-the-range, dark, brooding yet well defined patchouli, with a stem-like wood impression and a fairly harsh peppery spiciness, reminding me at some stage of Tom Ford's purple patchouli - just with less violet character. The oud is also dark, deep, rich and so convincing that I wonder whether a touch of the natural stuff might have been added, although given cost and rarity as well as the unholy obsession with laboratory synthesis amongst today's perfume producers that is hardly ever done these days. One lives in hope! The oud is very convincing and of prime quality.

In the drydown a rich, velvety and softly dark Bulgarian rose arises, the third of the main actors on this olfactory can stage. A very good and convincing rose this is indeed.

The drydown keeps up the high standard that is present so far. An ambery impression that is unlike the usual synthetic thin versions of it, and a sandalwood note provide the foundation of the base, with a dark and spicy musk continuing the theme form the beginning. Touches of honeyed and tonka sweetness round off this olfactoric magical tour.

Performance is nigh stellar: strong sillage, great projection and ten hours of longevity on my skin.

The house of Tiziana Terenzi is truly focusedly niche, but this is the first of their fragrances that I sampled that bears hallmarks of convincing stature: high-quality ingredients, very well blended whilst maintaining structure, and one of the few oud product in that recent deluge that is worth taking seriously. 3.5/5
