Ameer Al Oudh by Lattafa

Agarwood, Vanilla, Sugar, Labdanum.

A tolerable blast of alcohol rushes out of the sprayer when applying this very pleasant Arabian creation. Take heart though, because it departs as quickly as a deadbeat dad called upon to write a check for his monthly child support payment.

As a fragrance accumulator and overall lover of scent, I've been trying to intelligently sift through the tidal wave of oud releases that have bombarded our shores and internet clutches the last few years.

My reasons are simple; I've experienced, own or have owned just about every desirable designer that I've deemed worth having in a preposterously large wardrobe. Oud is not a western sensibility and because of that, it's only recently making an impact here in the States.

Naturally, it's making an impact on my wardrobe as well, but there's always the risk of bad blind buys when pulling the trigger on full bottles because samples are not available. Yea....I've made a few disappointing purchases, but this isn't one of them. Instead of a CPO, this is western style and yet it manages to wear like a CPO delivery system, but not quite as heavy. Bottom line is that, on my skin, Ameer Al Oudh is a deep woody oud, sans the skank and complimented by a subtle gourmand and petrol quality. Is labdanum, one of my favorite accomplices, in this brew? It's hard for me to tell since Ameer Al Oudh is dense and blurred. Besides that, who cares if the totality smells good.


For its price point and availability in the States, this is a nice addition to your collection. It probably won't collect dust as it performs well in cool to cold temperatures. If you like Mukhallat Malaki CPO by Swiss Arabian or Oud for Love by TDC, there's a real good chance you'll like this as well.

Sillage is above average for an hour then settles to a polite throw. Longevity is what you would expect and has a hang time on me for about 5 hours before lasting another 5 as a personal space scent. Thumbs up from Aromi for Ameer Al Oudh and as always, a sample wear is recommended, if at all possible.
