Red Patchouli, Nutmeg, & Oudh

Recommended Posts

Sampled this at lunacy yesterday. Not very indolic at all, no fecal to this oud. Which is perfect because the patchouli is dry and super dank. The nutmeg adds a nice “grit” to the scent. Super interesting trio, so basic and yet so good. Would love to slather this on a dude.

Red patchouli, Nutmeg and Oudh is definitely oudh, but definitely not black oudh.  It's not barnyard; it's deep and rich and very grown-up, and it's a perfect foil for the dry red patchouli.  Just these two strong, self-confident notes (I honestly struggled to find the nutmeg) twining together, and yet it's not simple because the notes themselves are so complex.  It has oudh-level throw, too, at least for the first hour or so, after which I did get a hint of nutmeg, but just a hint, because this is femme fatale, not spice cabinet.  The woman who wears this does not bake apple crisp.  Gorgeous now, and I bet it will be phenomenal in a couple years.

I gambled on a bottle of this because it should age divinely, and all those notes are win - as long as the oudh decides to behave. 

... And it does. :) Dry, rich, woody incense. Glorious.  I will be stowing this one away, like a fine wine, to revel in later.
