Yowza ! So, you like your openings full of smoky and leathery oud do you? This is slightly charred embers still hot and wrapped inside a leather satchel. The leather isn't burnt, but the heat has been building up inside of it.
There's intermittent, olfactory references to Mona di Orio's Cuir, but they are more akin to passing nods of acknowledgement. I'm referring to the smoke and leather when I make that statement. Petroleum is also a chameleon and does not remain this way for long.
This is a provocative oud and I must say for the record that I like it very much. Sillage is good and longevity is 6 hours plus on my skin. Thumbs up from Aromi for Edition Rare Petroleum by Histoires de Parfums. Those searching for an oud with more versatility, give this baby a ride and as always, a sample wear is recommended.
