Key Notes of L'Autre Ôud

What Does L'Autre Ôud Smell Like

L'Autre Ôud by Lancôme greets your senses with a distinctive blend of warm and sweet elements. The initial scent reveals the earthy accents of labdanum, followed by noticeable hints of clary sage and the exotic spice of saffron. The cypriol adds a touch of smoky woodiness to the top notes. As the aroma develops, the lavish duo of Bulgarian and Turkish roses surges to the forefront. These floral notes provide a rich, deep redolence that carries a tinge of sweetness.

Upon settling, the fragrance unveils a robust base characterized by the unmistakable scent of oud—a sensual, balsamic note that speaks of ancient forests and exotic locales. Supporting the oud are the subtle undertones of gaiac wood and myrrh—an amalgamation that adds both creaminess and incense-like depth to the overall bouquet. The aroma of patchouli swirls into the mix, lending a dark, slightly sweet and musky dimension. At the same time, the resinous scent of gurjum balsam and balsam tree subtly enhances the composition's complexity. Vetiver traces lend a grassy, earthy edge, while the moss provides a damp, green finish, tying the fragrance together with a note of natural woodland freshness.

Review of L'Autre Ôud

L'Autre Ôud by Lancôme is a scent that demands attention, but not in the overwhelming or overbearing way one might expect from an oud-based fragrance. Rather, this perfume is a subtle, complex symphony of aroma that draws you in and keeps you engaged.

As a unisex fragrance, it leans slightly more towards the feminine side, making it a particularly lovely choice for women who appreciate the depth and mystery of oud but want to avoid something too heavy or masculine. The oud note in this perfume is indeed pronounced, but it is so skillfully blended with a variety of other elements that it manages to strike a harmonious balance.

The spicy and woody facets of the scent make it a perfect match for the cooler months, with its warming and comforting qualities. In particular, the evenings, this fragrance seems to truly come alive, creating a captivating aura that is sure to make a lasting impression.

While this perfume has a good lasting power, it's not one to fill a room. Its sillage is respectable, but it may not be the best choice if you're looking for something with a strong projection. However, this may work to its advantage in more intimate settings or professional environments where a more subdued fragrance is preferred.

In terms of value, while L'Autre Ôud is not a steal, it's a fair price for the quality and complexity of the scent. It may not be an everyday fragrance for most, but for those special occasions or moments when you want to feel a little extra luxurious, it's worth every penny.
