Oud is often thought of as dark, brooding and mysterious. Even the way it comes into the world has a whiff of drama about it: When the Aquilaria tree is infected by a mold, it secretes a protective resin which eventually becomes the precious, fragrant oud wood note.
But Byredo's Oud Immortel bucks the trend and puts a smoky, earthy oud accord in the background, even though its name has top billing. It opens with a gourmand vanillic lemon accord, which contrasts with an earthy, herbaceous base of tobacco leaves, moss, patchouli and papyrus. This base cuts the sweetness with a mysterious dryness, making the scent edgier than sweet scents usually are. And, although it's not listed, it would make sense if the immortel flower, both savory and syrupy sweet, were romping around in Oud Immortel.
Oud Immortel's lemon scent is courtesy of Limoncello, the aromatic citrus-fruity, candied Italian digestif, the major key personality to the oud's minor key. In the background, the slightly medicinal, camphory vibe from patchouli allows a brighter, happier, fruitier character to speak, accented with warming spices of cardamom.
Smoke and mystery combine with sweetness and warmth to create a paradoxical fragrance both friendly and mysterious. Oud Immortel invites you in with candied lemon and cardamom, and then leaves you entranced with its smoky tobacco leaves, sheer oud accord, and moss.

I wanted to try out the oud immortrll smell because it was so well advertised to me. I did and I had to wash it off almost instant because it was making me sick! But the smell was very powerful .. had to wash my clothes well too to get rid of the smell. I don’t even know how to describe the smell ..smelled like strong gasoline to me
Dark, Mysterious, Rich. Under the radar and Underrated! Will be back for a bigger bottle.
A great bargain for a very expensive perfume
I got it and i thought it was nice... not enough to buy a whole bottle at approx. $300 but it was nice. I gave my sample to my coworker and he was amazed stating he has never smelled anything like it. It does have a long last with few sprays...so if you want something that'll carry through the day this is a good scent for you. It is a masculine scent. i'd say good for a night out at a cigar bar or a nice restaurant.
Incense, smoky, and creamy oud. Love it!
