3.6 out of 5
It had to grow on me then I start wearing it a lot, and now I need another tube
This fragrance was much too sweet to me liking.
Seems a little ordinary at first but grows on you with time
I didn't love it at first because I thought it was too musky but over time I grew to appreciate the depth of the Oud and now I really like it! At first I thought it was something my overperfumed grandma might wear but I now really like it!
Minaudière Oud, a fleeting beauty.
I really wanted to love Minaudière Oud. The scent itself is just as I expected from reading the notes--a lovely oud and jammy rose, with a hint of orchid and plum underneath, which makes for an intoxicating combo. Beautiful. Sadly, the longevity on my skin is non-existent. I tested it on the inside of my elbow, where I have the best luck with all fragrances, and not even this could sustain it. The true scent is revealed within the first minute of spritzing, but after only ten minutes of wear, it begins to die down and fade away on my skin. It becomes barely a whisper of a skin scent, which in itself, only lasts an hour on me. I am normally okay with re-applying fragrances, but not every 10 minutes. If you're looking for a similar fragrance that is BEAST MODE material, I suggest Montale's Intense Cafe and Lancome's La Nuit Tresor.
Way too sweet
I was hoping the musky notes would come through but they didn’t. It was just a very sweet smell to me. I can’t wear it. I gave it to my mother and she seems to like it.
Not for me
Not a fan. Did not like it at all!!
This is a sweet, spicy scent that is perfect for a night out!
This is my first ScentBird perfume and I'm very happy with it! I wasn't sure about the scent initially, however the longer I wear it, the better I like it. I love the sweet raspberry undertones, they add just enough lightness to the rich, almost musky scent.
I got this wanting to break out of the comfort zone of all the fresh and citrusy scents I always wear. I rarely get anything with a different scent profile so I was worried it was not going to work for me but it is incredible. It is sweet but balanced by the incense throw. That is the most prominent note here. The mixture of that and the oud is quite mysterious. It makes me feel very seductive. My husband approves as well.
In love with this perfume
This is the first perfume I've tried from scentbird, and I absolutely adore it. Immediately after I put it on it's very floral, but the longer I wear it the more complex, warm and mysterious it becomes with notes of vanilla and incense. I actually wish I would have chosen woodsy instead of floral to describe it, since the floral notes fade rather quickly. I can't stop smelling my wrists the whole day whenever I have it on, and it lasts a long time as well. There's something very comforting about it, it feels like curling up in a soft warm blanket. Perfect winter scent. Though I do want to add that if you don't like the smell of incense, this isn't the scent for you as the incense notes are quite strong.
Nice light scent for an Oud
Nice light scent but does not last. If you are looking for a traditional oud then this scent is not for you.
really loved this one! musky and sweet
Not the best
Not a big fan of the scent. Don’t know if it was because of the oud, but it just wasn’t my style
At least it lasts a while
I really dislike describing scents as "old lady". I feel as though it's a cop out for not liking the scent, but this one, oh man. It's definitely a mature smell that did not go well with me at all. Made the mistake of using it before work and I felt pretty embarrassed my whole shift. Boy, did this scent last...
I am all for a spicy, woodsy scent but this was just too strong for me. I couldn’t get over the strong essence of incense. I will try it again but I don’t think it’s for me.
love the scent
i love the scent but it doesn't last very long at all
Nice scent but not for me
Others’ reviews have been so helpful so I thought I would comment. I think the dry down is soft, warm, sweet and a tiny bit powdery. I sense the amber if that is the warm scent :). I want to love it. It’s just not my favorite. y body chemistry has changed it seems when it comes to perfumes so still searching for those notes that work for me.
Great dry down
First spray is really strong and isn’t pleasant even if you like spicy oud perfumes but almost instantly the dry down is beautiful and smells very dark and spicy. I love it. If you’re looking for a flowery perfume this isn’t for you.
I didn’t like it
Not a smell that I enjoyed smelling. It was long lasting though 🙁
if you like Amber and vanilla you will like this.
I'm brand new to Scentbird, so I took the quizzes and started filling my ques. This first one had me worried and anxious! Let me tell you though, the scent was PERFECT for me. Earthy, woodsy, hints of amber and vanilla make for a perfect winter scent. It's wonderful 😍
I hated this at first, but about 15 minutes later I couldn’t stop smelling myself. Totally love it - it really does change smells after time.
This smells horrid. That is all.
Its a bit too strong for my taste. You definitely only need one spray and it'll last you all day.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS FRAGRANCE, WILL ADD THIS TO MY TOP 5 !!!
Wood smell. Pepper . Defiantly a mood scent
I liked the rich earthy scent of this. feels grounded but sexy.
Absolutely ❤️It. I love woodsy, sensua fragrances. This fragrance was that and more. Bold not overbearing. Commanding but delicate. Earthy undertones of
It’s ok, not the best Oud perfume I’ve ever smelled, but not awful either. I won’t be purchasing it full size or a la carte that’s for sure, but I will use it up
I love this scent. Warm, sweet, woodsy all in one.
Soft Woodlike scent. Not overbearing like Tom Ford. Not my favorite but I will wear this fall to switch it up!
It's just yummy! I can't stop smelling myself lol! When I first sprayed it, it was awful, smelled like bug spray. Most reviews were great so I gave it some time to dry. As it dried I felt curious, like what's going to happen next. When it is dry, it's smells warm and sweet. I feel cozy! Perfect fall or end of the summer fragrance.
Beautiful mix of vanilla and floral
Too woodsy and strong for me and gave me a headache.
This is the first fragrance that I've received since beginning my subscription and I am completely OBSESSED! 🖤 If you adore deep sensual scents with a lightly sweet edge, you will love this. When first spritzed, it reminded me of La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme but that changed within the first five minutes to more woodsy, amber with a light patchouli/oud dry down. If you're on the fence because you don't enjoy floral scents, don't fear this one- the only floral is in the sweetness of the initial spray. Trust that this will be one of your faves. 🔮
Love this scent!!! It's woody with floral notes and lasts a really long time!! I can still smell it on some of my clothes in my closet that I sprayed on days ago!!
I was wanting more of an oud but this came out a bit heavier on the floral side of scents. It is very rose forward.
I love this perfume. It's a sexy, long lasting beautiful scent.
I love this perfume. It is feminine and flirty with a slight smell of fresh wood. Perfect for everyday wear.
Love....love....love! It's definitely a must try....and it last all day.
i absolutely love this fragrance
This is a very strong and potent scent good for going out at night. It reminds me a little of Alien.
Kinda just "okay" for me - the scent is almost reminiscent of an Indian spice market: not altogether unpleasant, but definitely different. It is, in my opinion, geared perfectly towards women who prefer a more masculine scent. I got tons of compliments from my male coworkers, but literally none from my female counterparts.
Love this perfume...very sexy. Got lots of compliments
Love this Oud fragrance, a little goes a long way.
I wasn't a big fan of this perfume. Definitely not for me.
Love this! It smells divine and last all day long!
I LOOOOVE THIS SCENT. I took a chance on this one and I'm glad that I did. It has a strong start, but once it settles, it's so beautiful. This is a scent for when I just want to feel pretty.
Love how long this lasts and the warmth! Great scent!
