If I had read the description of Tigerwood Royale on Ensar Oud’s website I would never have tried a sample. Instead of a discussion about the scent itself, I found myself unimpressed and put off by the hyperbole of award ceremonies, big wigs, sultans and wads of cash. The majority of the description and I mean word count was dedicated to MONEY. I was struck by the juxtaposition of the new and improved sales price. The slash of red thru the original price. Although LUCKYSCENT wrote about how much more it would be worth in years to come, it’s already lost value evidently. I found myself trying to learn about Tigerwood Royale thru the reviews on Ensar Oud website, but all were curated. Quoted reviews? I tried writing to Ensar Oud website directly to find out if I had indeed gotten a genuine sample from Lucky Scent because on my wrist after two applications in one morning I was finding the Queen’s oud evaporated. I remembered thinking how very decent OUD YUSUF was - such a fist of staying power. On this very forum I read that aged oils tend to last longer. I am completely confused now. I could have sworn I re-applied tonight Tigerwood Royale to my left wrist, but this isn’t what I remember from the other morning. This is SENESIS III. But that can’t be! Did I slip myself the wrong OUD - read one bottle and apply another? Let me get back to you on this. I was told the best time for the nose is morning.
