OUD  by Maison Francis Kurkdijan

The Oud is smooth and restrained, and mixed with cedarwood, saffron and a patchouli that again is smooth - no harshness in this scent on my skin.


The drydown adds a bit if a gourmand-style sweetness, and the projection and silage are good.


I get moderate sillage, good projection, about three hours of longevity.


This is a nice and gentle autumnal oud, that avoids the crass synthetic shrillness so often found in oud fragrances.  A good oud composition whose performance is limited.  3.5/5
