    Default Initio Oud for Greatness last and lasts

    Ive been enjoying this scent exclusively all week and it seems to stay on you for many many hours. I keep catching whiffs of it in the air hours after application as well. Great scent.

    Yeah it makes use of similar compositional components that are also found in fragrances such as Dior's Leather Oud, Oud Ispahan, Kurkdjian's Oud Satin/Silk Moods. Those are the only ones I can name off the top of my head as I don't like these compositions, but they certainly do last. You can spray any of those on your clothes and the smell will linger for a week off one spray, and that includes throwing it in the washer and dryer. Mind numbing longevity, just sucks that it always dries down to this white musk. Of course not possible, but maybe if Leather Oud lasted a week as Leather Oud I'd enjoy it, but a day of Leather Oud and a week of white musks (as nice as it smells) ruins it for me.

    Glad you're enjoying this! Definitely one of my better purchases last year and still the ONLY fragrance my 10-yr old daughter has ever complimented me on. lol

    I recently sampled Fragrance du Bois New York Intense and found it to have the same vibe as Oud for Greatness. NYI might be a tad bit smoother, but was also closer to skin.

    I get wonderful performance from this one as well.

    While I found this to be a very nice fragrance, i did not find it unique or mind blowing enough to purchase a bottle at the asking price.

    The lavender and oud/saffron here make this an interesting combo, and sort of an "alternate reality Baccarat Rouge 540" in essence. I like it but the price is a bit much for the blend quality.
    oh look, I have a signature
