Reviews of BR17: Oud Mosaic

Many on the Fragrantica site liken Oud Mosaic to Dior Oud Ispahan. I cannot argue with that, as I am not familiar with the Dior. What I get with Oud Mosaic is Egoiste with an oud accent — Egoiste Oud, if there was such a thing.

For me, this was a pleasant surprise.

Starts off very similar to TF Ombre Leather. About an hour in, it starts to morph into a slightly barnyard oud but with plenty of sweetness still there to remain pleasant. It remains firmly in the Ombre Leather comparison throughout, so I would consider this a good alternative if the Tom Ford is not attainable.

Very good projection and all-day longevity. Just all-around good in my opinion.

Perhaps the best value-for-money rose-oud you'll find, Oud Mosaic is the highlight of Banana Republic's fragrance line and outclasses offerings from considerably more expensive houses (example: Guerlain Santal Royal). A rich, fresh, slightly sweet rose mingles with a well-drawn, almost animalic oud-musk in the base.

Oud Mosaic opens a bit sweet, spicey and quite rosey. The spicey sweetness comes from the pepper and plum top notes which gives the rose a slightly "jammy" feel, but not in the traditional sense (so don't be shy about trying this one if you hate jammy rose fragrances). Musky undertones eventually creep into the mix and this inexpensive gem ends up drying down to a nice anamalic musk.

Overall scent...9/10

I got about 7 or 8 hours of longevity out of it which is pretty good considering my skin usually devours scents...8/10

Projection and sillage a very good as well. I only used a few sprays at the store and walked into my house about 25 minutes later and my wife commented on how she could smell me from the other room...8/10

I feel that Oud Mosaic is a really good rose/musk fragrance that is bottle worthy, especially considering the excellent price point.

This smell very good, a bottle of 15ml cost me $25 dlls. It reminds me of tom ford noir de noir, you can feel the exquisite rose and plum on the first spray, average longevity.
