just a quick first impression
I just got mine from Maxaroma which I believe was the last one as it became 'out of stock' right after which makes me feel so lucky cause I'm a sucker for discontinued fragrances and ATH fragrances.

Aaron Terence Hughes' Christmas Fake is (as far as my understanding goes) a limited edition version of Fake for the holiday season in 2021 with a very limited release and little to no recognition from the fragrance community.

The first thing I got was oud, the oud is front and center in this holiday treat and if you see the note breakdown you'll find it as a top note and yes, you get slapped in the face at first spray. Also, the oud is a little funky, a little barnyardy so beware! however it is very well balanced with the other notes so it's not offensive or annoying, in fact it's very very nice! I also get the cinnamon and cloves a little and something lighter that gives a Coca Cola feeling but not sure what it is. Please note that my first impression was not on skin so...

I'll update and discuss performance once I've test it further.

Lovely, cozy scent. Smoky oud accord with tobacco nuance. Dried fruit with mild spices. Dry down has a nice musk accord. Well done!

The oud is very present, it's first thing I noticed and it's a funky oud.
