Amber Oud by Kilian
I understand that there are different interpretations of the oud note. Mona created a very expensive, yet fabulous rendition of it, before her untimely and sad passing. The oud note in that release was different than what I had become accustomed to, but I was certainly able to identify it as oud. I cannot say however that I experience oud in any fashion while wearing Amber Oud by Kilian.
Do I find Amber Oud a nice scent? Yes, it's extremely nice in totality, but I still want oud in a scent that advertises it in its name. It's also no surprise that the price is.......well........high even by Kilian standards. Amber Oud is all about amber on my skin from start to finish. It does exhibit some woodiness and has an oriental finish. It's nice, but the price point is simply too much for this reviewer.
No....not really. I'd wear Amber Oud on a regular basis, but on the condition that I didn't have to shell out the asking price. It's simply too much do-re-me for what it does. At almost $400 per 50ml., it makes you think real hard, but it still deserves a thumbs up because it does smell extremely good.
