Rose Oud Fragrance Reviews


This is how I see an elegant lady at the opera in her mid 60's.
I feel too youg for this scent.
It's powdery and definitely a signature scent. Just not for me.

I am surprised that it is a young scent. Could as well have been a classic which has been around for 40, 50 years.

Like Roge'said - Interesting to say the least.


One of the softest ouds. In fact the rose note is also soft and comforting, slightly sweet/green with the 'feel' of depth underneath. The bold notes listed are surprising, yet their quality is evident.

I'm not a huge lover of semi-soliflore rose scents, but this one has everything interesting about it. Not too much bitter or woody screech, but the most satisfying, gentle depth. A green patchouli gives the composition a good undergirding.You will have to employ your nose well to dissect and identify all it's hidden layers.

Good longevity and fair sillage. I only tried this from a small vial, so it would seem even more pungent sprayed. Great in summer.


This opens beautifully with sweet Rasberry and beautiful osmanthus which settles into a delightfully soft rose which is further sweetened by Lily of the valley.

I love this perfume, it's classy, joyful and exuberant, the longevity is excellent and projection is also very good, a bit of a powerbomb IMO.

The only thing that this perfume does not have is Oud. I don't care what it's called or what the notes say, Oud is about the only note that I can detect a mile away, but this perfume, beautiful as it is, does not have any oud in it according to my nose, so if Oud is not your favourite note, worry not and try it with wild abandon, but if you are expecting something remotely oud like, you will be dissapointed!

Rose Oud opens with a nice, simple, vaguely "retrò" but compelling and pleasant rose accord rich in femininity and class, a bit generic and artificial but "full" and dense in its own way. The oud underneath the floral accord is discreetly dark, nothing too much pungent or gloomy; rather a dry wood note scented with nutty-rubbery echoes typically associated with agar wood. Like the roses, nothing amazing but good enough. That's it: basically a decently pleasant scent, a bit unoriginal perhaps, both for the idea itself and the materials/composition used here, but well made and nice to wear – even if the sillage and the persistence are not worth the cost (a couple of hours and most of the magic is gone, and you remain with a generic, synthetic green-woody salty note).



Unlike for other voters here, I get very little projection from "Rose Oud" after the first hour, the staying power also wasn't what I hoped for - 4 hours if you don't count the other three you barely feel a thing.

As for the scent itself, this is an unusual "Rose Oud" appereantly every company lately makes. This is extremely SKANKY. From the start I got overload of musk and castoreum and in fact very little oud. Rose was present - green, sour, well to say - with thorns. The combo was hard for the nose, but nevertheless I found it appealing as I've always enjoyed perfumes a bit on the dirty side. Unfortunately very, very soon it settles down to a somewhat boring sharp rose-musk combination that, as I mentioned before, fades away within 4 hours leaving a very, very faint trail of straight up feminine rose and clean musk. Dissapointing to say the least, after the heady skank opening I expected much more.


Nice try on the overdone rose/oud genre. Starts off surprisingly un-rosy and morphs into a nice soft oud. There is a lot of musk and some woods but this is nothing exceptional or novel. Good price point too. If you want to get to know a safe rose oud, try this one.


This was a fun ride. I think the community will become fond of this one. I came for the Rose Oud concert but ended up being entertained by so many other notes. *Spoiler alert* No raspberry at all. In the beginning, all I got was about 30 seconds of rose. Then it went all downhill or uphill (depending on who you ask). At this point, the rose completely disappears into a cloud of musk and oud. Not for the faint of heart, this composition then morphs into something completely skanky and dirty. Like a rose growing from the concrete, the lily casts a brief shadow overlooking the valley of artemisia. Speaking of rose, it then makes an encore while being accompanied by something powdery. In closing, rose oud rides off into the sunset as a rosey oud fragrance. Weird. I don't think I ever experienced a fragrance that ended the way it began. Interesting to say the least...
