Terryfic Oud Fragrance Reviews


i can't speak to all the ingredients listed here, but cumin and/or caraway is certainly in this. unquestionably. added to that, i get animalic tones. it *could* be some sort of accord struck between the oud, cumin and iris, but i definitely get some civet like stank (think oud 27 by le labo) in the mix. it smells great and works well as a whole, but lordy me, it's TOTALLY not suitable for work. especially if you're a high school teacher. nuh huh.


A cleverly crafted Amber-Oud. While cumin adds to its overall sultriness, the fruitiness of the berries also compliments the sourness of the Oud.


This is an odd blend of a slightly sweet doughy, iris, a tiny bit of oud, and a lot of everyones favorite sweaty ball sack note, cumin.

Cumin is listed on Terry's own site, and is a major player through the entire life of the perfume. Why its not listed here is beyond me.

The cumin is so front and center, that i just can't get past it. There is definitely a beautiful perfume beneath, but the cumin never goes away.

"unwashed lady parts". Great. Thats not something i want to smell like. Yet i got that description from 2 different people.

Excellent longevity and projection. Cheap cardboard box it comes in. Nice heavy bottle, with a heavy cap.

Fyi anyone interested in this, Cumin is definitely in it. So is safron, not listed here either.


I do not particularly like oud and this scent is no exception. It reminds me of Montale Black Aoud, only a little lighter and without the intensity of the roses notes. Not terryfic, but not great either. Only for oud lovers.


Well, this was a surprise and I dare say deserves to be introduced to a wider audience.

A cross between Amouage Epic and Fate for men, Terryfic Oud's opening borders on the spectacular. Whereas many offerings from this genre save the oud for the latter stages of development, here it is front and centre from the get-go, a more than generous helping combined with piquant dry-roasted cumin and a dash of pepper. It's undoubedly powerful but in a grab-your-attention rather than overbearing kind of way. Better still is the clever use of iris, acting as a boundary to allow the potent mix to pack a punch without it overplaying its hand.

Short of the hour, Terryfic Oud takes on what I can only best describe as an 'acidic' tone, redolent of the slightly sour smell that you get from damp wood; this could just as easily be attributed to the unripened berries incorporated, however. If it sounds unpleasant, it's not, not even remotely, and in any case the iris, which has become more prominent by this stage, acquires a degree of creaminess to help mellow out what still reamins a strident mix of oud and cumin.

By the time you reach the drydown, the fragrance becomes sweeter - but not sweet - with the appearance of amber, and adds an unexpected though welcome nutty vibe (possibly hazelnut?). Small quantities of clean patchouli and polite musk round everything off. Nothing wildly original at this stage, admittedly, but delightful all the same.

Well worth seeking out.


The best of 2013
non medicinal oud+balsamic amber+red berries.


I have to agree with Sandra2. The cumin here is strong. For me, it's just too much. I despise cumin in perfume. Love it in Tex-Mex food, but not on my skin. It just comes across as rancid body odor on my skin. Minus the cumin, this smells a lot like Cuir Garamante by MDCI. The oud here, for me, is way in the background while the amber is prominently foregrounded. To my nose the amber obscures most everything else, except maybe the mega-powdery iris. I get no berries whatsoever.


This is a beautiful and long lasting oud-amber-red berries combo. The pungent scent of oud is played against sweet amber and acidic berries and the result is well balanced. There are probably florals in it as well, though this is no ordinary oud-rose combo.

The radiance is good and it is very long lasting, more than 12 hours on my skin. There is a certain sophistication to the fragrance - my only wish is that the red berries could be toned down a little bit. Unisex, but maybe leans towards masculine. Due to its pungent sweetness, it probably works best in a cooler climate and is more of an evening scent. But as most fragrances, use it when it suits you.

Edit: Hmmm...I have used it over a long period of time, and it now comes across as very sweet, almost cloying. I can probably use it once in a while, in the evenings, but it feels like 'too much' to use on a regular basis.


I've received a sample today. It's deep and dark, definitive a masculine fragrance more than a feminine.
Cumin is not listed here, but it's definitely there as a strong spice.
