This was formulated for those of us who enjoy a good woodsy gourmand. There is a burst of oudwood at very forefront, then it layers out into (like whiffing a bag of Brach's Royal Taffies with the fruit flavors in the middle) to my love affair with Raspberry Gonesh incense, then mellows out into a cool sweet caramel that stays close to your skin. Masterfully crafted for those of us who seek out the multilayered, oriental Gourmand woods. The smell evolves through the day, and my little kids love the smell on me. Great job on this one.
I love Inara Oud. It reminds me of Shaghaf Oud (saffron) and Florence (sweet vanilla) Similar dry down, sillage, and longevity. The scent is gourmand sweet. This was actually a blind buy bundle purchase. I’m happy I made the purchase. Both Inara and Inara Oud smells nice, however I love Inara Oud more. I’m going to try layering the two perfumes to create a different scent. I’ve also purchased Crystal Rose and Queen which are also lovingly sweet.
