Very nice scent from the Orient
The bottle alone is a visual highlight. The packaging looks very noble. Wouldn't have suspected a fragrance here for under 30 euros But also the scent knows how to convince.
This one is pleasantly spicy, sweet. Not too much and not too little. A smoky oud note is added in the background. Fits.
The overall fragrance is very pleasant. I wear it on colder days. The durability is outstanding. With me, 12 plus hours. This scent could already be a non-scent.

With kind regards

You have to get used to it
When I first applied it I thought to myself: I have never noticed such a disgusting artificial smell. Bin to my sister, she said it just smells bad.

The 4th time I thought: it smells actually ecccht pleasant after 20 min, Oud haltig and relatively nice. Something bothers me but, Oud is beautiful but a certain note bothers me slightly therefore no 9/10 points at smell.

When my sister the second time dran gerochen has it was "more pleasant and better but not good".

Well, either you like him or not, with me he was a BLindkauf but definitely first smell then buy.

A smoke bomb before the Lord
In the very first second I thought to myself, what the hell did I get this one for (in negative). 3 seconds later a fragrance volcano erupts from soo smoky, woody, leathery, resinous...insane. It is worth every cent and actually even more. H/S in this price range hard to top

How will you spend Christmas Eve?
I received Opulent Oud a few days ago, along with Solitaire Eau de Parfum and Shuhrah pour Femme. Let’s say that Opulent Red initially attracted me. Its lacquered red bottle immediately caught my attention. However, its presumed resemblance to the Armani Privé - Rouge Malachite that I own made me desist from buying it, and my choice moved to the black lacquered bottle of Opulent Oud.
And since this dark and mystical fragrance arrived on time, I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it tonight on Christmas Eve. In my family of origin, we have always celebrated Christmas lunch. But for the past few years, I’ve been joining friends to celebrate Christmas Eve dinner. What better occasion to unleash Opulent Oud? Its spicy warm character, enveloping like a fine wool sweater and at the same time resinous as dark as a black cloak, perfectly suits such an important and intimate dinner.

The opening is spicy and sharp, in the customary oriental way for fragrances featuring saffron and warm spice. A rounded rosy background already lingers, but I mainly receive leathery saffron with a plastic edge, band-aid-like, and sweet and pungent cinnamon. Hidden into that riot of spices, there is a feeble shade of citrus, probably bergamot and orange oil. I won’t exclude a floral touch of white jasmine, the nightly blooming species. Since coarse saffron is my jam, I like how Opulent Oud introduces itself. It’s a bold, arrogant, self-centred entrance that wants to get noticed.

When the spicy blast tones down, a blend of jammy rose, and barnyard oud wood takes place. The Opulent name Oud is there for a reason. The oud is not clean or refined; it is dense, dark, syrupy, and nearly obnoxious. The medicinal side of oud sap must be of your own liking to truly appreciate this beast. The fragrance is designed and built for the Arab people. It is not a tailored suit for the European, international, or non-UAE crowd. It unleashes the strength and power of the oud, indomitable, uncontainable. If you pay close attention, you’ll pick up a powdery slant in the middle phase, possibly from an iris or purple hue that adds dustiness to the edgy aspects of the resinous fluid. Now and then, I seem to catch the syrupy smell of the dried fruits.

The dry-down is where Opulent Oud takes a smoky turn. Now the sap of the oud comes into play; the skanky part blends with the woodiness of the cedar. Smoke is on par with what incense resin emits when burned. It is a rich, dry, smoky incense without that clerical aspect. A copious amount of juicy resin and amber binds the smoky and dry accords, adding a touch of sweet saltiness. The base also offers an earthy side with a patchouli undertone, which gives extra depth without making the fragrance too dirty. Although there are all these elements in the base, the precious and wonderful incense stands out above all on my skin.

Opulent Oud is a resinous rose-oud pair in the Middle East style fragrance, with hints of saffron, amber, and musk. It is good for the colder months and more appropriate for evening and night events. For €26, this is another beast performer with a unique scent and great projection, which can be exchanged for a more expensive niche scent. It projects gracefully for the first couple of hours, then sits close to the skin, and I keep a small bubble around me for a while, but it lasts forever. All the people that hugged me asked about what perfume I was wearing. And you, how did you spend Christmas Eve?

I'm basing my impressions and review on a bottle I've owned since December 2022.

Saffron Praline meets Iso E Super. Persian vibe. Dark blue velvet. Luxurious oriental pencil shavings. Not really smoky, just dryness.

With its resinous darkness, as deep as a black cloak, it is the ideal choice for such a significant and intimate dinner.

Initially strong and potent, with oud and saffron. Over time, it becomes more "sour" (in a good way). Excellent longevity and projection!
