This is my very first oud fragrance, although I can imagine that it is still far away from the "real" oud. My first thought is that I am annoyed why such a treasure is kept away from us "in the country". After this scent, I personally opened the door to more oud-, or arabic-influenced scents. All of a sudden I realize what a pity it is that one hardly finds any self-managed perfumeries...But to the scent: I often distance myself from rose scents, but this one is wonderful! I also wear few syrupy droplets, but this one has just enough of them. This fragrance is like a facetted, coloured glass, whose facets sparkle in different colours, or appear matt. The fruity notes are absolutely delicate and in balance. This perfume is also suitable for younger, fashion-conscious women. The Sillage is underestimated by oneself. The durability is excellent. I love to spray it on the hair (also). I would also love to try the iris scent of Alexandre J terribly .
