WONDEROUD is the ultimate incarnation of wood expressed through the most exquisite wood notes-- OUD. One of nature's most precious gifts, Oud is worth its weight in gold. An aromatic resin, scented with subtle notes, Oud is known as The Black Gold of Perfumers. Used only for the most precious and mythical concoctions, its powerful and rich character brings a woody, animal, balsamic and even honey feel and texture to a fragrance.
100% Natural Oud extracted from resinous Aquilaria trees grown sustainably in South East Asia. A powerful yet fluid structure written around an overdose of precious woods, with most of the wood ideas concentrated in the heart, rather than the base.
Wonderoud is lavish, indulgent, uncompromising. The creation of the ultimate wood fragrance, celebrating Oud, the most precious wood of all.

I got the original Wonderwood and Wonderoud. To me they didn't smell woody but two different people I asked to describe the scent said I either smelled like "fresh tissue paper" and one said like "paper and pencils"..well paper is made out of wood so I guess the scent was spot on? Wonderoud was noted as smelling more woody by others to me the oud was loud whereas Wonderwood was noted for being softer. The oud in wonderoud makes it lean more masculine as thats what you expect from a mens cologne yet I do think a woman could get away with it solo or as a layer to add more depth to a feminine perfume. Wonderwood feels unisex (a Gypsy Water fan) the more it dries down. The initial spray is very peppery and screams mens cologne but after an hour or so it softens down to something that smells a little sweet and "woody" with hints of pepper. I liked the sandalwood note in this and its what made this one softer than the Wonderoud edition imo. Note, I am a woman who enjoys the smell of Home Depot and was looking for something that smelled woody or papery to wear layered with something something else floral or sweet.
Give it a shot if you're not particularly big on ouds.
Amazing scent really
