    I tried this a couple of weeks ago and prefer it over Aoud. If you’ve experienced those Arabic amber oud oil blends, you’ll have an idea of what’s in store but Amber Aoud is smoother and better composed. However, that’s not enough to warrant the asking price and longevity is still lacking (but slightly better than Aoud).

  2. Marjorie Rose says:

    Seems like they shouldn’t use the descriptor “rare” with oud, given how many oud scents there have been! It does sound like it would be pretty–nutmeg especially caught my attention. Chances are good that I won’t seek it out, at those prices, though!

    • Robin says:

      But they have to call it rare to justify the crazy prices :-)

    I also preferred this to the standard Roja Dove Aoud, but i also tried the new Acqua de Parma Oud at the same time and it blew my mind – loved it!

    • nathanthomas says:

      PS just tried the A di P Oud sample again and its given me a headache – think its TOO strong for my delicate nose! Damn that concentree – i cant get my head around the Oud and sharp citrus mix, its confusing my brain!

      • nozknoz says:

        It pays to go easy on some ouds – Amouage Homage Attar is the only perfume I have where just a dab or two with the tiny sample vial dabber is enough.

        • nathanthomas50 says:

          Yes , with it being Acqua di Parma i wanst expecting it to blow my head off! The bottle is quite nice but hate those tacky crystals he likes sticking to the lids

    That bottle – Mr. Dove is not one to worry about going over the top, is he? ;-)

    • Emily says:

      The jeweled cap kinda reminds me of Sarah Jessica Parker’s Covet, which is probably not what Mr. Dove was going for.

    In my search for OUDS how have I missed that my DEAR DI PARMA HAS A SAMPLING? Wo is me, le pant le pant.
