Oud Malaki by Chopard

Grapefruit, Lavender, Wormwood.
Leather, Spice, Tobacco.
Oud, Ambergris.

The opening accord of Chopard's Oud Malaki is bracing, but not unpleasant. It's an aromatic introduction and I'm of the opinion that those who gravitate towards ouds in general will find it interesting. The rendition of Tobacco doesn't waste any time merging into the accord. It's actually a refined version ( if there is such a thing ) and I cannot help to describe it as such. Within the first 5 minutes, you will have experienced an attention getting blend of citrus, resin and tobacco. It leans masculine to my sensibilities.

By the time Oud Malaki reaches its heart accord, it has become more focused,  shedding any rough edges that were displayed upon application. There are qualities of spice and a leathery spirit apparent for the remainder of the wearing, but they're not bold representations. They are more suggestive than anything and I deem them well done.

The oud has been upholding this platform from the beginning, but again, it smells streamlined, deliberate and tuned exceptionally well to play off the other aromas wafting around in this enjoyable brew. The amber in the base and drydown is subtle, but effective. It pairs nicely with the still going resinous aspect of Oud Malaki.

Sillage is intelligent with longevity approximately 6 hours on me with moderate sprays. Thumbs up from Aromi for Chopard's Oud Malaki. As always, a sample wear is highly recommended.
