My first oud smell... How awesome! Oh no! Maybe not? Help...
Ôud Ambroisie had been standing on my ML for some time. The bottles of the Les Parfums Grands Crus series by Lancôme are all super beautiful. But I was most interested in Oud Bouquet and this one. I didn't have oud in my collection until now. I only tried the TF's Oud Wood and Tobacco Oud. The latter one I gave to my friend. On his skin TO is quite masculine and spicy. There was nothing to smell of the typical cowshed oud. So after a long time back and forth I dared to try an oud scent for moi.
Smelling the bottle, the scent is already roaring at you like a lion. Phew, I thought. But i like!
Sweet, oriental and smoky. So I figured, eyes closed and off on the skin...
The prelude is quite alcoholic and seems relatively quiet. Hmm where has the lion gone?!
After a few minutes I can already smell the oud well. But it smells woody and spicy and thank God it's not pasture. Oud plays the leading role here on my skin. Even though the honey is emphasized in the scents, it only plays a minor role for me. On my skin it is not as sweet as on the spray head.
Although I thought at first that was it. After about 30 minutes a slightly rosy note comes through. But you have to be really busy with the scent otherwise you might not notice it. And so sch** expensive as the scent was, I do it of course ;D
Fortunately, patchouli doesn't show up in my case. That would be too much for me From this point on the scent does not really change any more. Towards the end it becomes a little sweeter and slightly smoky.
H&S are bomb. Although I thought at first that the one on me was probably not so strong after all, I was asked after about 5-6 hours whether I had just applied perfume. As with BR540: Once again I do not smell so strong... Therefore here really 1 sprayer is enough. max. 2 if he wants to be worn for going out. Because with this one you stand out! Is also rather for the cold months thought
So that was my comment on my first oud fragrance in my collection and I must say I don't regret it! Ôud Ambroisie is a very beautiful fragrance and I'm sure I will wear it more often during the cold days. On occasion I have to test Oud Bouquet, which seems to smell delicious with praline and saffron :)
My poor wallet..
