The oud is encouraging in the sense that it is not the commonplace hyper-synthetic screeching and loud oud that is currently so popular.
At times other notes come up - the occasional very soft patchouli touch, and whiffs of a more nonspecific woodsiness - but otherwise it is the dyad that gives this scent its name.
I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and eight hours of longevity on my skin.
Another oud composition good for cold autumn climes; mercifully rather a civil oud but the whole does not reach beyond mediocrity. 2.75/5.
