Something new from me. This time from Mancera. This week freshly arrived in a 120ml bottle, after having tested this fragrance several times. It was not the big love at the first tests, but a fragrance that always interested me very much. Since I wanted to have a fragrance of this great brand in my collection anyway, I chose this one.
In this paragraph I will write a small resumee about Mancera. If you only want to read a fragrance description about Aoud Blue Notes you can skip this paragraph. I have already tested many fragrances of this brand and some will follow. Mancera is a brand that I like very much and there is no one that has failed me completely. You get a lot of quality at fair prices when it comes to niche products. The big sparks have not jumped over with me, because I already own similar fragrances and my collection is already big enough. Cedrat Boise is a great scent, which goes in the Aventus direction. Lemon Line is also a very solid citric refresher. Wave Musk, Sicily and Soleil D'Italie are great fresh scents that are easy to buy, especially when you're on sale. Red Tobacco is a grenade when it comes to attracting attention. But I missed those occasions for this guy. For next fall I can recommend Aoud Vanilla. A great cuddly vanilla scent with a shot of oud. Another great scent for the cooler times is Instant Crush. A nice scent in the direction of Baccarat Rouge, but here it is much more masculine with a lot of saffron.
For the ladies the following fragrances are highly recommended: Aoud Orchid (great fruity-floral scent with a very cultivated touch), Pearl (flowery-green scent), Indian Dream (beautiful and heavenly jasmine scent), Wild Cherry (seductive strong cherry scent), Roses & Chocolate (beautiful rose-chocolate combination). All great fragrances that I like very much and would definitely give away to ladies.
There goes my little midterm résumé. A great brand where I will test some more.
Now for the Blue Aoud Notes: I have tested this one already many months ago. My statement says 17 months ago. After this long time it finally found its way into my collection. This fragrance is simply very special and will remain in my memory. A fragrance where you don't have the feeling to smell it for the umpteenth time.
The packaging of this brand is rather plain for niche markets. Normal cardboard and the fragrances come in a chic mancera bag. The flacons make a decent job of it. Uniform shape, beautiful glass and great colour gradients. For flacon fans, it's already a noble eye-catcher.
The price of this Aoud Blue Notes is very fair. Good performance, uniquer fragrance and qualitative this fragrance already smells according to this price. 140 Euro for 120ml is very accessible, although not cheap. Optionally Mancera also offers 60ml, which cost between 80 and 90 Euros.
You shouldn't buy that fragrance blind. Even if it will be well received by many, it could well find enemies. I often read something about shower or shower gel here. This I can sign conditionally. The fruity freshness goes roughly in that direction, but becomes special with the flowers-oud-mix and stands out. I am not the biggest oud-fan, but I really like the combination of freshness and oud.
The opening takes getting used to. It is partly already hard at the border to musty, which is the characteristic of many oud scents. In any case very special. This scent definitely attracts attention. Whether good or bad, everyone has to decide for himself. The best time of the fragrance is for me when the heart note sets in. About second to fifth hour. The scent becomes very soft and gentle without becoming too feminine due to the floral notes. For me this part is a clear 10 out of 10, the base is pleasantly over very ordinary. Many woods with a subtle sweetish touch. Overall I give a very good 9th
Performance is very good. Durability should be around 10 hours and the projection is very present.
A very nice Freshie with a very noble heavy touch. This makes it a year-round fragrance. It fits best as a transitional fragrance. Also from the carrying possibilities it is versatile. Evening, leisure, everyday life ... But in my opinion it is best for the evening. Will not be a dust catcher in my collection and 120ml can be easily emptied because of these many uses. Especially since it is also a feel-good fragrance that is very interesting.
Unisex is 100% correct here. For me, a fragrance that suits neither man nor woman better. But since this type of fragrance is very modern, it's more for younger people.
A fragrance I can highly recommend. But the style is not for everyone. One should test it.
