    I haven’t tried the original MFK Oud yet but I’m willing to do so. And these new three all sound quite appealing.

    • Robin says:

      Oud is well done but not of any interest to me — the brand, so far, just is not my sort of thing.

  2. trigger hippie says:

    Oud Mood? Seriously? Wrong for all sorts of reasons.

  3. Lys says:

    I’m in the mOud for Oud.

    I wonder if M. Kurkjian’s cultural cache excludes him from the usual criticism of flankers.

  4. maggiecat says:

    I’m a huge fan of MFK, but not of oud, alas. Still, these sound…nice.

  5. MCocteau says:

    Montana used to make 3 “mood” flankers for their Parfum de peau. Always seen them at the discounters…

  6. SmokeyToes says:

    I loved his Oud, but not enough to pull the trigger for a full bottle, I just can’t justify spending quite that much on a scent…. I’d be interested in trying these to see how they wear.

  7. Supersmell says:

    I’ve just received my parcel from Paris containing the Velvet Mood version, which I bought blind. A thing I rarely do but I wish I could have bought all three Ouds.

    Velvet Mood is lovely on me, very dark and hypnotically tar-like, with the Saffron always nearby to smoothen its deep Oud scent.

    Maybe I should play some lottery…
