Scent profile: After first application I was instantly transported to a throne hall of an old king, where everything is made of aged wood. Very dark, resinous, a bit musty and intensively woody. I do not detect any animalic notes. I can imagine an older bearded gentleman in a tweed suit wearing this. Would be a perfect match. Somehow I think this would not be appreciated by young generations, but that can be said about any oud oil. Describing the scent profile with one word - ancient. Performance: As it was mentioned by many, you do not need much of it. I dabbed it on both hands and it easily lasts most of the day. First two hours it projects very decently, so people sitting right next to you will definitely notice the fragrance. After two hours, you still have very strong scent trail, which will last you for couple of hours. So when you move around, people will catch it. After 6-8 hours it will become your personal skin scent, which will be with you until you wash it off. All and all, this is very luxurious, classy, long lasting and "ancient" fragrance. Perfect for those who are starting with oud.
Always fantastic products and service. Highly revommended.
Hoy he recibo una muestra de este aceite, que me ha agradado mucho. pero en la reseña no aparece el tipo de aquilaria que es (¿agalocha, crassna, malecensis...?) Podéis decírmelo? Gracias
This is my third purchase from Grandawood. This one I wanted to use for general perfumery as it is cheaper. To my surprise I found it a delight to work with. If you are looking for an entry level oud, give this one a try.
The fragrance put me off and have sent it back unused. I have been refunded the full cost of the oil
