Amber Oud

Eau de Parfum
The Scoop
In Greek mythology, the Heliades were the daughters of Helios (God of the Sun) and Clymene. After the tragic death of their brother, Phaethon, the Heliades grieved for four months yet were still blamed for playing a role in their brother’s death. As a result, the gods turned them into poplar trees and their tears into amber. The tears, which fell into the river Eridanos in the form of amber pearls, were then found and used to adorn Roman brides. This amber, born out of sadness yet then used to create beauty in times of joy and celebration, is exactly what inspired the creation of Amber Oud.

Amber Oud is a soft, warm and sensual composition built on the fusion between these two ancestral raw materials: Amber and Oud. The objective was to deconstruct/reconstruct amber by taking the animalistic qualities of a dark oud and adding richness through an overdose of vanilla from Madagascar and benzoin from Laos. Cedarwood from Atlas then brings structure to this creation by keeping the balsamic notes in balance. Finally, a touch of spice from Pimenta Racemosa (Bay Leaf) essence brings light to this oriental composition, similar to the light that one often finds in a Vermeer painting.

There's promise here, but I find myself wanting more for me as a woman's fragrance. It's staying very cool on my skin and I like it, but I am not overly moved. The cedarwood is very prominent and the amber used is very sharp. I wish there was a final note, something deeper, richer to take it to the next level. I imagine I'll use up the sample vial, but unless something magical happens in the next hour this will just be a clean "meh" for me.

I can't get enough of this. The drydown lasted for hours and I couldn't stop smelling myself. Its not as strong as some oud's and has the amber to balance it out so that it doesn't knock you on its ass. Sensual and a good cool weather scent.

The bay leaf note in this is so lovely and calming.

I'm using this for a year non stop. it's a state of the art scent. very long lasting. more than 8 hours. everyone wants to sit beside you just to smell this creamy vanilla dry down. nothing like this has never been crated ever.

Is this really amber oud? I never liked amber because it turns skanky and animalic on me. Never liked oud either because it's also too skanky and animalic. So amber and oud are the notes I pretty much avoid, but I got curious on this because of the rave reviews...I don't detect amber or oud here, (some said it's a different take on the notes) no skanky smell whatsoever on me! It's quite boozy on the beginning but on my skin it turns into a soft, creamy, powdery veil of a scent. I bet this smells even more gorgeous when sprayed on. The soft creamy drydown just lasts and lasts. So I guess amber and oud can work on me after all!

This is a rich, warm fragrance that feels more true to the Arabic perfumery traditions it's inspired by. There is nothing groundbreaking or complex here-- just an exceptionally well turned out, highly addictive Calice Becker fragrance. I can't think of another amber fragrance exactly like it, and part of its appeal for me is that is can smell slightly different on me from day to day. Pricey indeed, but worth it in my opinion. It's also worth noting that I feel that it should ideally be sprayed on the skin to get to the truth of this perfume.

I have no idea why this scent is priced the way it is... oh wait because of the marketing and the other BRANDS behind it... Louis Vuitton, etc.. The scent is nice, warm but nothing special. The amber is light, the top note hits very lightly and boozey, it transforms into a very lifeless middle note which you can sense a warm tinge but nothing spectacular. I do believe this is a great unisex because of its lack luster hit. The base note is immediately calm which is rare and the lasting power is mediocre. Not the Amber I am searching for...

Warning to all amber lovers - do not sample this unless you can afford a whole bottle! This is pure heaven, beautifully imagined, rich, sophisticated, unique. I've tried every amber there is, but everything else pales in comparison. It's smooth but still has a spicy kick that faintly reminds me of the sadly discontinued T42. It literally lasts all day, where most scents disappear on me In a couple hours, no matter how concentrated they are. I don't care if it's spring or winter, I'm wearing this baby year-round. 6 stars!

it's my third week I'm using amber our. it's very strange. from the start I was smelling vanilla mostly and something else in the beginning. I could stop smelling this vanilla. so nice. but now my nose stopped smelling the vanilla. bought some authentic oud wood chips. burn em and oud came by. exactly like the only smell of amber oud I can smell now. so so nice. so sexy and masculin. definately a men's scente. the most complex parfume I ever smell. maybe the best smell for my nose. if you like oud of course.

its not a women parfume. its so sweet. so vanile. so nice. love it.

Amazing fragrance that is soft yet smoky. I don't have $400 for the bottle, but it is definitely worth it!
By Anonymous on 3/5/2012
I love this perfume, but absolutely hate the packaging. The scent is exquisite and believe me I've been looking a long time for the perfect soft sophisticated amber-vanilla fragrance, and I was willing to shell out the $$$ once I found it, but the designers at Kilian need to re-think their packaging. I hoped for a beautiful elegant crystal bottle but got a weird overly masculine black bottle with a funky textured design on the side, encased in big clunky black box with a LOCK AND KEY no less. This is just ridiculous overkill and I hate to think that the cost of this admittedly exquisite perfume was increased by this gauche pretentious gimmicky packaging. The top of the bottle doesn't even come off easily. Fire your package designers please!

Simply gorgeous and seamlessly blended. The bay achors this for me, I think, and it is lovely from beginning to end. I've found my amber signature scent...soft and close to my person. To be enjoyed, even on a summer's evening. 5 Stars for all seasons.

This just blew me away! I would buy this immediately if not for the almost $400 price tag...I'm not dissing the price, it's so worth it, just my inability to pay for it. This is the second By Killian that I've flipped over. I think I like this one best of all of them so far though (it just barely edges out Rose Aoud). I still smell it faintly 5 hours in.

Something must be off with my skin chemistry today as this comes off sooo similar to CdG Palisander. A softer rounder deeper Palisander with the same slightly soapy note I get (but many don't) from Palisander. I would have never expected this! Seems to have ok lasting power and nice sillage. I don't like quiet scents and this makes just enough calm sound to be noticed. It is beautifully warm with the same herbal dry feel found in A Taste of Heaven just in a more cedar direction. Overall a more wellblended and warmer Palisander. As I said, my skin chemistry must be off.. still a beauty!

really good! it's got amber but it isn't the type of amber i'm used to, which is good. i love amber so much and this is nice because it's a different take on amber. i find it to almost be smokey and what is supposed to be oud i don't find oudy at all. not like anything ive smelled. i like this, alot.
