Oud in Western Perfumes - Test Part II

So as my testing of western perfumes goes on and on here the next ones:

Rose Oud by Kilian

It is disappointing, because it is artificial sweet. It reminds me on the smells of a fun fair and all those sweeties you can get there like candyfloss.
All in all it smells very artificial and trashy!

Aoud - Micallef
Aoud Micallef is one of the best western Oud perfumes I tried. Actually it is a men's perfume but I would not mind to wear if by myself! It is authentic and nicely fresh!

Al Oud - L'Artisan Parfumeur
And finally I got to test today Al Oud from L'Artisan Parfumeur, a very well known parfumeur by the way!
This is the worst scent I have ever smelled. You won't believe it, but all I am smelling here is the smell of sweat. It is such a stench, that I can not believe that anyone pay even a cent for this much less the high amount it costs!


  1. So question for you, considering some of these perfumes are expensive and sort after, will you stock them even if they smell bad?

  2. First of all I have to tell you that these kind of western oud perfumes I am just testing to get an impression, what is in on the western market and to recognize what people like about oud because it is different from the original arabian oud perfumes. My intention is to sell original arabian perfume like already mentioned brands like Ajmal, Al Haramain etc. because these ones are the market niche which is still not fulfilled in Germany!
    And for the perfumes which are stinky or not well smelling, of course I won't take in my product line!

  3. great to hear - you seem to have your vision carved out to perfection. I like that.

  4. Thanks honey, will explain specifically in my next post as it's not that perfect as I would like it to be!


for all nice and lovely words and all kind of suggestions. Any racist or anti-islamic comments willl be deleted!
