Here's what other people are saying about Oud Palao...
Ah, this is my new L''Autre. It''s sillage is not as powerful as L''Autre used to be but it''s a powerhouse fragrance and I''m in love. Not for the meek.

You''re roughing it in a thick forest, setting up camp with your loved ones. It''s late fall and it had been raining for the past few days, so your campsite is still damp all over, dense with rotten, fallen tree trunks and dead leaves, a thick and organic atmosphere. There aren''t too many mosquitoes out, but you decide to plant some camphor candles to repel unwanted insects from trespassing. The ladies, who hate that smell, put out some tiny vanilla candles in an attempt to mask it. You shrug, wondering if that defeats the purpose, and you decide to think about making a fire. You unfold a chair, sit down, pull out a cigar, and run it under your nose. Oud Palao by Diptyche.

Although Diptyque markets this fragrance for men and women, I''d say this fragrance has predominant male notes and the feminine notes like the vanilla take a back seat, with the tobacco and the Bulgarian rose taking up most of the attention. Although the tobacco and rose are great partners and work well balancing each other out, I think this fragrance could potentially be more unisex if they played up the vanilla more. Although all women may not love this fragrance due to the tobacco, I''d highly suggest it to males who are looking to express a more sensual, softer side to their personality.

I am clearly just an old (oud?)-fashioned gal who can''t get enough of that agarwood. Diptyque''s take on the oud bomb is very refined, elegant....Husband even liked it and may in fact wear it. It is indeed smooth and sumptuous, as the description indicates. Hard to beat the Montale line for quality oud perfume, but this is right up there.Excellent job!.

As far as I can tell there''s no such thing as a non-robust oud, so let''s state up front that this is not one for the timid folk. That said, this is a wonderful piece of work, elevating both the Bulgarian rose and the oud itself beyond the cliches both notes have been in recent years. I''m chalking it up to a phantom cherry-liqueur effect that winds through the heart notes. If that''s the tobacco and rum working together, make that four over-familiar notes this scent makes new. Lovely stuff.

Rich, dark, woody, and resinous. It has a slightly medicinal edge in the opening, which I happen to like, and the dry down is a beautiful rich rose. A potentially tired genre given new life.

This wonderful oud is slightly smokey upon drydown...yet creamy throughout the entire development. Each listed note is very distinct from start to finish with the camphor note fading within 30 minutes on my skin. This is a smooth and unique take on oud.
