Cinnamon tones, spicy, not as sweet as Papua A, no floral notes, I feel strong opening notes. After around 1.5 hours there was a distinct dry-down making the oil lose a lot of that initial pungent smell. There is a molasses/dark brown sugar quality to the scent on my skin – would be a perfect companion to a bowl of sticky toffee pudding! The sillage is good and as the day progresses the scent relaxes more and gets into itself more making it a very fine attar. Later in the evening, the aroma has mellowed with, for me, hints of tobacco and smokey wood. There's a distinct difference between the origins of this Oud and the Papua A Oud and that difference is what gives this Oud its individuality. It absolutely comes into its own several hours after the initial application. I will definitely be buying some for myself having tried the sample.
