Reviews of H The Exclusive Aoud

This is the first time I have copied and pasted but I am honoured to acknowledge the prefect description from my fellow basenoter:

A gut-punch of spicy-agarwood goodness that is yet again meant for the most discriminating of fragrance lovers (read: not for casually interested folks).

Simply put this is strong and heavy and not very wearable either for the person or the occasion. That's not to say it does not smell nice but there are many out there that do what this does better for more of the time for more people and with more value to quote President Lincoln. Or maybe President Lincoln's original quote is more accurate here as well if you think Roja are having a laugh with their price!

Fragrance notes include:
Top - bergamot, valeria, gurjan balsam, cypriol oil (nagarmotha)
Heart - rose, geranium, jasmine, oregano, nutmeg
Base - oud, patchouli, vetiver, birch, benzoin, rockrose

H - The Exclusive Aoud is rich, earthy, resinous and no-nonsense! Roja Dove spared no effort nor expense in creating this outing in the "H" series. The use of oregano and nutmeg, for starters, was quite a nice extra touch to this already heavy, busy scent. Within H-TEA is an interplay of floral freshness, warm and pungent resins, spicy dashes, and of course comfortable wood by - most of all - the anti-septic-like oud with support from bright birch.

Wow, this one is quite decant and possibly full-bottle worthy! :-)

This stuff is just amazing. Initially Im reminded just a bit of Jubilation XXV but this is smokey and has more patchouli. The oud in here is not medicinal but woody with something very slightly skanky in the background. As time goes on the patchouli becomes more prominent and blends with the oud beautifully. This is so unlike the other Roja offerings I've smelled in the sense that it is more in your face and bold. Definitely not developed to please the masses like some of his other creations but my favorite from the line along with Amber Aoud. Fantastic stuff.
