Key Notes of Rose Oud

What Does Rose Oud Smell Like

Rose Oud by Kilian is a unisex fragrance that charms the olfactory senses with a distinct floral and woody blend. Opening with a strong and unmistakable scent of Bulgarian rose, it carries an inherent sweetness and intense floral freshness that is subtly spiced up by the warm, slightly sweet and richly aromatic hints of saffron. However, the cinnamon note is not noticeable. As the top notes yield to the middle, the fragrance doesn’t introduce lychee or rose absolute to your senses.

As the scent matures, it reveals a deep, woody base. The unmistakable scent of oud, earthy and warm, defines the base. It offers an intense and luxurious aroma that anchors the fragrance. Despite the mention of Atlas Cedar, Leather, Nagarmotha, and Texas Cedar, none of these notes makes a significant olfactory appearance. Instead, the fragrance remains focused on its prominent notes—the Bulgarian rose and oud. The resulting aroma is a delightful floral symphony enhanced by an oriental, woody backbone, spiced up in a delicate way, and sweet without being overtly sugary. It encapsulates an olfactory journey from the sweet freshness of rose to the rich depth of oud.

Review of Rose Oud

Rose Oud by Kilian, first introduced in 2010, is a distinctive unisex fragrance. Favored slightly more by women, it offers an alluring aroma that is a blend of floral and woody notes, with a hint of spice. The dominant scent of rose combined with the richness of oud results in a sensual and bold fragrance. Its oriental character gives it an air of mystery which is appealing to many.

The perfume unveils its true beauty in the colder months of fall and winter, making it a perfect choice for evening outings or nights out. However, its woody spiciness also lends it well to leisurely days. Despite its intensity, it's not overwhelming, allowing you to wear it regularly, even in a business setting.

In terms of longevity, Rose Oud by Kilian lasts well, making it a good value for its price. Its sillage leaves a memorable, but not overpowering trail, allowing you to make a subtle statement. Overall, Rose Oud by Kilian is a fragrance that invites a second sniff, perfect for those who appreciate an exotic floral-woody blend.
