Key Notes of Oud Vert Intense
What Does Oud Vert Intense Smell Like
Oud Vert Intense by Fragrance Du Bois uncorks with a bold, lively start of Madagascan ginger, Mediterranean bergamot, and Sri Lankan cardamom. The nostril-pleasing opening is spicy, zesty, and a touch woody, offering a diverse olfactory experience that tickles the senses with its complex amalgamation of essences.
Just when you're settling into the ginger-bergamot-cardamom mélange, the scent transitions subtly into the heart of the perfume, where coriander seed, green geranium, and nutmeg take center stage. These middle notes add an earthy freshness to the scent profile, with the coriander offering an aromatic twist, and the green geranium giving off a minty feel.

As the perfume settles, it introduces the base notes of vetiver, cedar, musk, and oud. The vetiver adds a grassy, smoky facet, while the cedar presents a comforting, pencil-like aroma. The musk imparts an animalistic, warm, and sensual feel, and the oud, though less pronounced, permeates throughout, adding a luxurious, resinous undertone.
Overall, Oud Vert Intense presents a symphony of spicy, citrusy, woody, fresh, and green notes, creating a scent that is as vibrant as it is deep, and as daring as it is comforting.
Review of Oud Vert Intense
Oud Vert Intense by Fragrance Du Bois is a perfume that seeks to find harmony between the corners of the scent spectrum. This unisex fragrance seems to have found a slightly larger fanbase among men, making it a modern scent that challenges convention.
It leads with a spicy kick, courtesy of the prominent ginger and cardamom. However, the spiciness is well-tempered by the freshness of the Mediterranean bergamot. It doesn't oversell its zest but instead introduces it with a subtle and restrained elegance.
The fragrance then unfolds into a bouquet of green geranium and coriander seed, giving it an earthy core. This heart note ensemble may not be to everyone's taste but it serves to balance the opening act of spice and citrus well. It harks back to a classic scent profile, making it suitable for business occasions or an everyday perfume.
As it settles, the base reveals a woody undercurrent, unmistakably dominated by vetiver and cedar. This, coupled with the hint of musk and the ever-enigmatic oud, gives the fragrance a maturity that might not resonate with younger users. The longevity of the scent is reasonable, but don’t expect it to last all day.
Season-wise, the freshness works well in spring and summer, but the spice and wood also lend it a touch of warmth for the cooler seasons. Value-wise, it's not the most pocket-friendly option out there, which could be a deterrent for some. But if you're looking for a scent that straddles the line between old-school charm and modern freshness, Oud Vert Intense might just be worth a sniff.
