AMEER AL OUD Intense Arabian Oudh Perfume Eau De Parfum 100ml Men Women Unisex Fragrance
About this deal
The fragrance does carry slight gourmand notes, such as cinnamon and butter, yet remains dry and somewhat harsh — a paradoxical pleasure.
I thought it would grow on me but on the contrary, everytime i go back to it i find myself enjoying it less. While this one makes you feel like: you thought it was going to be strictly Middle East, but now you've seen and know that isn't true, you had a bit too much Baklava, now you are going to have a fancy dinner in a historical wooden building and after dinner you are going to enjoy one or two cocktails. For some reason, smelling this gives me some kind of comfort, it reminds me of sweets in my childhood.Let me first say that I can't support or deny the claim that this is a dupe for Replicas By the Fireplace. The smokiness is certainly there, like the smell of woodsmoke outside on a chilly autumn evening, when folks have their wood burners and log fires going. It seems familiar but is distinctly different, where I imagine the Arabic "heaviness" comes in vs what I'm used to in the west.
Opens with a huge blast of harsh alcohol, never a concern to me though as it dissipates soon enough. After a couple of hours, perhaps it has a HINT of the Replica DNA but it is nothing close to be classified as a dupe. After about 20 minutes, that Oud takes a back seat giving rise to the sugar, vanilla and woody notes to take precedent. Edit 3: 3 hours after spraying now, and the woods and spices have all but disappeared, leaving me with still about a foot and a half of projection, purely smelling like burnt sugar now. It is not a bad smell really but it just reminded me of my neighbours grandpa from my childhood days.If I'm careful putting it on and don't get tired of smelling it all the time, I think Ameer Al Oudh will be my favorite fragrance. I immediately loved it on first sniff and was blown away by the quality of the ingredients and the nuclear fixative that makes it last over 12 hours on my skin and still project to my nose.
I'm legit getting hungry, like when walking through the mall and smelling those candied almonds or fried donuts.I have tested them on test strips right next to reach other, and I am currently wearing both, Lattafa on the left, Replica on the right. The initial sugary sensation, reminiscent of a cozy winter evening by the fire, gradually gives way to the star of the show — the oud. The scent's character shines in the crisp air, its smokey and woody notes creating an alluring trail, reminiscent of a mystical journey through time and space. Of course there is absolutely no oud at all but it seems that is an obligation to put the word oud on every arabian style perfume and it's enough for a lot of reviewer to imagine smelling some.
It is a less sweet, more medicinal smokey cousin to BTF perhaps, where the fire has been helped along with some of those camphor starter blocks or fluid? Got my Margiela BTF from Copenhagen in 2018, barely used it because I am terrified of finishing the bottle. The Lattafa fragrance is less sharp and seems to have some kind of progression from opening to drydown. Privee Couture Collection Tuscan Leather is a Chypre blend of notes brings a raw, yet reserved sensuality to this original take on a classic leather scent.
It doesn’t really have any redeeming qualities, it’s little more than a harsh chemical mess, when I look at everything else in the collection I’m left thinking when would I ever use this.
