What Does Aoud Smell Like

Aoud by Roja Parfums is a perfume that strikes a balance between the woody and the oriental. At first whiff, there's a bright burst of bergamot and lemon, paired beautifully with the subtle green notes of vervain. These are quickly complemented by the middle layer, a bouquet of floral notes. Geranium and May rose are at the forefront, giving off a slightly sweet and dewy aroma, while Grasse jasmine and ylang-ylang add a touch of exotic, tropical sweetness.

As the perfume settles down, the base notes come into play, providing a deep, resonant backdrop. The oud is the star of the show here, providing a rich, warm, and woody aroma that is both inviting and slightly mysterious. The ambergris and cashmere wood add a soft, slightly animalistic warmth, while the cedarwood, musk, and sandalwood contribute a dry, earthy quality. The saffron and cinnamon bring a hint of spice, balanced by the sweetness of vanilla. Leathery notes, nutmeg, patchouli, and a surprising twist of rhubarb add depth and complexity, creating a scent profile that is both harmonious and intriguing.

Review of Aoud

Aoud by Roja Parfums is a rich, warm scent perfect for those crisp winter and fall evenings. This perfume strikes a balance between masculine and feminine notes, making it a suitable choice for men and women alike, albeit with a slight edge towards men. The dominating woody aroma is complemented by the dusky undertones of oriental and spicy elements, offering a robust sensory experience. Subtle floral hints add an inviting softness to the blend, while the resinous, sweet, smoky, and animal scents contribute to the perfume's depth and complexity. The scent is persistent, making it a reliable companion for long evenings. However, it remains discreet, creating an intimate sphere around the wearer. The perfume is most suited for evening outings and leisure activities but can also be worn to business events due to its mature character. It might not be the best value for money, but the distinctive blend it offers justifies the investment.
