Reviews of Splendid Wood

Harsh, medicinal opening that lasts a while and smells like sore throat spray mixed with feminine makeup notes and m7 oud. As it gets into the heart and base, it loses some of the fem and rounds out nicely, swinging back to unisex with clean, powdery, sexy, almost boozy wood notes.

Performance is very good with just a few sprays. Projection that can get out of hand if oversprayed and 8-9 hours longevity.

Truly a luxury fagrance, creamy woods softened with a touch of jasmine. Brilliant cardamon and incense opening. The texture is something that needs to be experienced. The formulation seems to have softened over the years for the better. I received a compliment for this at the 10 hour mark, so it lasts and projects nicely.

Splendid Wood has a very natural smell and feel to it and the more I wear it, the more I love it. It doesn't last as long on my skin as I would have hoped for, maybe a few hours and I only get a slight whiff of any oud. The incense and cardamom are more apparent and it has a creamy scent to it. You can feel the luxury from Splendid Wood but it does not last long enough to warrant the price tag.

a forest of fragrance. perfectly balanced for a sensuous night out (or in). the oud is penetrant but not overbearing, the classic woody combinations offset beautifully with jasmine. this is one for special occasions (not least because of the exorbitant price tag), it is the evening fragrance to wear after a day in M7 oud absolu. Thanks YSL for another classic.
