Eternal Oud vs. Grand Soir - A direct comparison
Hello everyone! The Eternal Oud is a rightly very popular fragrance by Lattafa for the following reason that it is said to smell like the Grand Soir. However, since you can only order it blind online, I wanted to dedicate my review to comparing the two fragrances directly with each other.
Let's start with the fragrance itself.
Both the GS and the EO are very tonka/vanilla-heavy fragrances. Both fragrances are very sweet and have something resinous about them. They are also very similar to each other, but I notice a few differences in a direct comparison. The GS is sweeter, sweeter and more rounded. The EO smells less rounded, it smells rougher, less sweet, but also somehow more masculine. You can also smell something plummy, which you don't with the GS.
However, you only notice these differences in a direct comparison. If I smelled the fragrance on someone outside, I would think that person was wearing the GS. I think that we fragrance freaks are more likely to be able to tell the difference than "normal people".
I prefer the smell of GS because I like sweet fragrances. However, if you like the GS but find it too feminine, you will love the EO. If you could rate fragrances more specifically here, then the EO would be a 7.4/10 and the GS a 7.6/10
For me, the point goes narrowly to the Grand Soir! Performance:
The Grand Soir has both greater durability and a stronger silage. Point to the GS.
Flacon:
I only have both fragrances as a bottling, so I can't say anything about the handling or the spray head. However, I think the EO bottle is better. For me, the design is very interesting with the tree and the dome. The MFK bottle is just a standard MFK bottle. I find it rather mediocre. Point for the Eternal Oud.
Price:
The point clearly goes to the Eternal Oud. What you get here for the price is insane!

Conclusion:
It's 2:2 - a draw!
Both fragrances are really very similar. If you have the necessary spare change and don't want to worry about longevity and silage, you should get the Grand Soir.
However, if you want to save money and are looking for a slightly more masculine version of the Grand Soir, the Eternal Oud is a good choice!

Big evening for little money
Grand Soir from MFK for savers

I have the Grand Soir as a bottling and have tested both fragrances extensively against each other for a few days, both on the skin (right/left) and on test strips.

In drydown, the fragrances are almost indistinguishable. I left both fragrances on test strips for several days, and the longer they lay, the less noticeable the difference. I also involved several people from my environment, and the tenor was: 'It's the same fragrance There are very slight differences, but they are really marginal.

You have to be into this kind of fragrance though. It's very heavy and probably not for a teenager. As the name 'Grand Soir' (Big Evening) suggests, it's not a fragrance to wear for sports or a day at the lake. It is more of an evening fragrance for self-confident men who want to stand out.

I personally really like the fragrance and would buy it again and again.

The durability and sillage are good.

Grand soir?
Lattafa Eternal Oud.
Opening has this kind of medicinal cinnamon-fruit(maybe plum?) smell, but at the background, the Amber and vanilla is present. Doesn’t take time to notice what this fragrance is similar to... MFK GRAND SOIR!! But hold up, it’s not done. The Oud then introduces itself, but as a backbone to the ambery accord, this makes it darker than Grand soir.
.
Lattafa has now passed the stage of being called a clone house, they now do twists of fragrances like Mancera. Speaking of mancera, some people mention this being a clone of Red tobacco or PDM Carlisle, I understand why... the style of the whole composition—from the Oud, to cinnamon, to vanilla, to that fruit—gives a very slight vibe of Mancera Red Tobacco. But just a little.
.
The deep dry down familiarized me with a new note—Benzoin. That’s what really connects this fragrance to the deep dry down of another fragrance from Lattafa called Asad, and I checked, they have similar base notes, tho.
.
In summary, I love it. At times, when I sniff the atomizer, I get a very realistic vanilla and Amber smell... very sexy! The presentation is off the chart for the price.
.
Longevity is not bad. I’m getting 8-10hrs or more. Projection is smooth, not loud or soft, just a bit above moderate. Quality is excellent, that smooth vanilla smell got me impressed.
.
Rating- 8.5/10
.
I think Lattafa deserves the BRAND OF THE YEAR award, sentiments aside.

Let it work...
Have the fragrance for just under a year and found him initially hardly portable.
He made me quickly headache, unfortunately I do not yet know quite what that is. I suspect almost the orchid...

BUT: I have now tested it again and really only a mini sprayer used and he now thus really learned to appreciate.

The fragrance notes are very well matched, he is for me very masculine, heavy but still sweet.
Oud, vanilla, plum initially clearly in the foreground. The plum subsides at some point and it remains a pleasant but fresh sweetness by the grapefruit I guess. Really grapefruit but I can not smell out.
So he becomes much softer after about 2 hours.
So you can spray him quietly 2 hours before you leave the house, at least I will do this. :)

All in all, I find the fragrance but a little too well rated. He is an absolute oud beast as I find, but also without special features.

Sillage and durability are really good for the price, however, I know otherwise rather from Mancera or Amouage.

Flacon is of course a feast for the eyes, no other flacon is so often addressed when I show someone my collection as this one.

So it's worth it all times to include him in his collection, if he is just on sale and you're on oud. :)

A small tree with prunes...
The bottle: Lattafa, how do you do it? I paid 35 EUR and didn't expect a bottle that could also cost 200 EUR. The presentation in the glass dome is great!

And now to the fragrance: I can definitely smell parallels to Detoir Noir... But it's as if the fruitiness has been removed. Unfortunately, I haven't had the MFK GS in front of my nose yet.
The scent is vanilla-like and the tonka bean immediately envelops you.
My mother-in-law, who usually reacts very sensitively when she smells my perfumes, didn't say anything either. Is that a good sign now? Yes and no... I can't quite get to grips with the fragrance myself yet. The fragrance has this little scent of prunes in the background. You know those prunes from the metal tin? That's exactly what I smell and it makes the fragrance more edgy than round.
I'll leave it for now, maybe my batch is too new. (Dec 2023)
The drydown, on the other hand, is great! After 2 hours, I no longer smell any plum either.

If anything changes, I will update.

Delicious fruity start, and then the heliotrope is the protagonist. Sweet and docile oud, for all noses. Spectacular performance.

the opening reminds me of UMESHU almost 1:1. The dry down is worth the wait. Average on performance on my skin.

Warm amber with dry spices. Unfortunately sometimes a bit scratchy not as cuddly as GS. Almost dated/oldschool at times

Don't know if I tried a bad batch, but it was so bad, one of the worst perfume I've ever smelled.
