    A lovely oud accord. Heavy on the castoreum side making it fairly leathery and deep. I use this one neat but can be perceived easily at .5% of formula. Give it a go.

    I’m thinking about making a fragrance using only this note, its that good. Oud, sweet, leathery, touch of smoke. It’s absolutely divine.

    Smooth yet smokey with a fractional hint of barnyard. My favourite Oud to work with

    Extremely well balanced oud base. Very flexible to use compared to the Leather Oud. Animalic, slightly smoky but very smooth overall. A must have !

    Such a nice base. Easy to work with. Love it

    Some leather, some clay, some oud and a bit of an animal oud scent. It has a very strong. I haven’t worked as a blend yet but it’s very strong on its own.

    Very consistent and animalic in the right measure

    Great Oud base that I’d want to use in a composition. The other oud bases I’ve used don’t match this one. I like the animalic, barnyard type oud. Easy material to work with, and lots of possibilities and uses for Pretty Oud.

    I’m not typically one for synthetic replacements – particularly for those certain inimitable naturals, like oud, musks, narcotic floral absolutes, etc… But this one, I have to make an exception for.

    While I wouldn’t use it as a direct oud replacement, I think you certainly could, without any issue. It has that warm, ambery-incense glow you’d find in a clean, young Vietnamese oil, bolstered by a little whiff of that sort of Ambrocenide-like glow – except this isn’t at all scratchy and piercingly synthetic like Ambrocenide. It really does have that clean warm oudy feel to it, but smoothed out a bit, with an underlying furry growl, and a good dose of sweetness.

    I’ve known of this product for ages, but never had interest in trying it. I’m glad I did, because I can see this becoming an absolute staple for minute dosing to add depth and warmth, or to bolster real agarwood notes. I’ve only just begun to play around with it, but it seems you can push it pretty far (probably at least 4% without it becoming discordant or screechy), or keep it low as a subconscious complexifier (I’m making that a word now).

    Even neat on the skin, it definitely immediately strikes one as “oudy”. I like this one a lot. High potential workhorse synthetic agar material. Exceptionally balanced, capable of being a highlight feature.

    Very well blended oud note. I have mixed with ambrocenide, Sandalwood, ethyl maltol and off course many molecules to create a balanced perfume. It is super. I hope to continue produce it.
