Light and sweet with a splash of ‘oud’
At the opening, Incredibly similar to Mancera’s Hindu Kush, but without that aggressive chemical note that I dislike. A very mainstream take on oud, and I say that as a compliment not an insult. This is not geared toward those who seek super skanky authentic barnyard ouds, this is a sweet woody fragrance that just hints at smooth facets of oud, and I would definitely see being well received by the ladies. Looking at the pyramid, I can pick out the cardamom and vanilla, with saffron, oud and others providing just enough masculinity to balance. Could easily be worn by anyone who likes pleasant, sweet, and slightly woody fragrances. Definitely unisex.
