I love this so much! Such a great fall sweet feminine fragrance, will be buying a full bottle!
I will preface by saying this creamy fruity/floral/gourmand hybrid is my very first from the House of Oud and that initial impression has secured that I will be ordering more samples in the future (Grape Pearls is already sitting in my ScentSplit cart).
The surprising peony opening softens an otherwise drizzling gourmand to make a feminine-leaning (it’s advertised as unisex), unique accord. My sweet tooth is dying from this combination: every single note in this contributes to its sweetness! Floral sweetness from the peony. Fruity sweetness from the dates (which are also featured in the exotic sweetness of Zoologist’s “Camel”, a favorite masc date-night scent of mine). And the majority of course stems from the gourmand sweetnesses from the honey, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and icing sugar.
The fruity/floral opening being strong enough to withstand the gourmand foundation and base dash of cinnamon prevents the caramel and tonka bean from densifying this scent, making it unexpectedly effervescent, yet the left-field addition of the smoky tobacco elevates this from a gooey gourmand to a mysterious sophisticate. While still sexy, I find myself at odds with the packaging, yearning for something more delicate to complement this yes exotic, but *flirtatious* (not erotic) fragrance. Not what I expected (based on so many reviews being fixated on the sugary aspects), but velvety and vaporous.
