  1. I think it’s the oud, but I find this scent to be green. like smoke in a mossy forest. there’s a certain darkness to this, likely coming from the woodsmoked amber? I was definitely expecting an entirely different scent, but I like this. it’s also quite musky. The oud smells like sweet tobacco.

  2. well done but the oud is quite prominent so you have to be an oud lover for this one, the oud is kind of pungent, needs a long resting spell – weeks or months even to mellow out.

  3. Oud is a tricky note, I have a few Oud scents I just can’t do and I consider myself a fan. This one is lovely, maybe not as wearable as Solstice Scents Manor and quite abrasive at first application but after it settles on the skin it’s delightful and the addition of tonka was so inspired, I really love this one and highly recommend it!

  4. warm woodsy sweet oud

    Thoughts: The tonka and bourbon vanilla give the oud a glow over over hot embers. The smoke isn’t very strong imo (which I prefer) and it feels rustic at first. Once it drys down I keep sniffing at the tonka amber base.

  5. Really perfumey woodsmoke with bourbon, vanilla, and oud. The oud smells like burnt plastic on my skin though! I’ve been hoping that would settle with age, but it hasn’t yet and it’s been roughly a year or so.
