Oud fragrance notes

Reviews of Oud

There is one review of Oud.
Main notes include: Oud, olibanum, vanilla, and coconut.

Oud is amongst the Parfums de Jour collection which also includes Petit Grain and Gardenia. Mr. Gerakinis points out that these fine fragrances are known for their versatility. They exude deep and soft accords which are wearable day, night, and any time throughout the year. It can be a daunting task for me to break down a fragrance without knowing the note list, especially when the fragrance is so well blended as it is with M.G. "Oud." Before I became acquainted with the ingredients, I described it to a friend as a clean oud which is non-offensive and unchallenging. The overall vibe is warm, comforting, soft, slightly-powdery, smooth with a buttery, and slightly tropical vibe. I would not classify "Oud" as a gourmand nor is it overly sweet. I typically avoid overly sweet fragrances and gourmands simply do not stand the test of time on my collection. It shares some similarities with M.G. Petit Grain (another outstanding versatile, warm, soft, powdery, comfort scent) after I give it a full wearing. After confirming the notes with the perfumer himself Mr. Gerakinis, I felt somewhat vindicated as I had envisioned some of these notes were present. Performance wise, it projected and lasted a solid 8 hours (4-5 sprays.) In fact, I feel as if I over applied the fragrance. Once again, I underestimated the fragrance and ended up giving myself a migraine headache. Overall, I am excited to have found this wonderful line of truly unique, luxurious, niche fragrances and hope they expand their horizon beyond Europe. Sidenote: I've tested four of Gerakinis' creations and three out of four led to full bottle purchases. Overall rating 9/10
