A truly beautiful oud fragrance!
Still no comment? Then it's time, because I would find it extremely unfortunate, this fragrance would be overlooked!
I have put me "Oud Mosaic" by Banana Republic due to positive reviews of some perfume-You Tuber. There was talk of an "easily portable" oud fragrance. In addition, the interesting combination with rose and the similarity to "Oud Ispahan" by Christian Dior was pointed out, for which one would have to put easily 350 euros on the table of the house.
To the similarity with "Oud Ispahan" I can say nothing further, since I have never smelled this perfume, but my Blindbuy I have in any case not regretted. It is "Oud Mosaic" a really fascinating perfume. At first smell still something that takes getting used to, it beats you in no time in its spell.
Oud is often described as "mystical", which is actually not a real description of a fragrance in the strict sense, but nevertheless also typifies the scent of this perfume more or less well. Oriental mysticism, smoke, rose, a lot of plum, the latter somewhat alcoholic fermented, so I would want to describe the smell most likely. In the beginning, the fruitiness of the angeboozten plum predominates, as I find, the rose I smell at first not so much out, it becomes more floral later, however, until the orientalism of the oud and the spices prevails more and more. Overall, a scent progression that tempts again and again to hinriechen, which for me, among other things, is a main criterion of a good perfume.
In addition, the sillage and especially the durability is outstanding. My first test sprays in the crook of my arm I could still clearly smell the next day after showering [!]!
Addendum: On clothes he seems to hold forever ...!
Fascinating, different, dark, lovely, strange, mysterious, noble and sexy, all this is he, this fragrance. In addition, absolutely high-quality, with beastly performance, coming in a simple but valuable bottle, and all this even at a fairly low price...
