Creed has created their oud fragrance as a response to the many requests they received from clients, but they have adapted the scent to the style of their house. Wood, leather, marble and gold—the elements of a royal Persian palace—inspired this luxurious mix of the Persian and Parisian.
Royal Oud is a stylish and warm fougere fragrance with a beautiful kaleidoscope of woody, aromatic green and spicy nuances. The note of oud is an integral part of the composition, playing its role in balanced equilibrium with other notes.
Top notes include lemon, pink berry and bergamot. The middle notes consist of cedar, galbanum and angelic root. Base notes are Regal Indian oud, sandalwood and Tonkin musk. Royal Oud was launched in 2011. The nose behind this fragrance is Olivier Creed Sixth Generation.

I’m comparing to Initio oud for greatness or PDMHaltane both of which I have deep dank oudness. Royal oud is more about the floral almost powdery sweet opening with I just can’t get past. A woman might like it, but it’s absolutely not my thing
Royally average fragrance.
I only wish it projected a just a little longer. Still, very alive. Love how it dries down.
If you've never experienced oud, for most, it's either you'll love it or you'll hate it...there's really no in between. This scent is good, but I prefer other ouds. I've tried 2 other ouds: Oud Wood by Tom Ford (musky oud), and Oud for Greatness by Initio (oud for beginners). At the end, I chose Oud for Greatness by Initio because it blended better with my body chemistry and was way more subtle.
