Stunning composition which is definitely worth me owning despite having dozens of super high quality pure oud oils.
Strangely comforting and warm with saffron being a standout note.
For those who are wondering about performance, initially I didn’t get many hours. Having experienced this before I put it down to being a new bottle. Over the course of a few weeks the performance improved significantly and months later it lasts an easy 12 hours, if not more, and is very potent.
I found this challenging at first as I hadn’t come across the sheer strength of the composition in anything else I had tried. The Saffron and Oud combination is very powerful and assaults your olfactory network with no mercy.
There is something addictive about Oud Ankaa. It’s complex and the composition holds up well, staying somewhat linear as per opening (positively so).
It’s very spicy and oudy, no barnyard, just aged oud blended expertly with other top quality materials.
Despite its intensity and oomph my wife likes the scent, as do my children.
Some other words I would use to describe Oud Ankaa are: ancient, tomb, dark, spicy, resinous and intense.
There is a pickle note (Asian mango pickle) which is persistent but it’s not off putting.
There are no official notes. Fragrantica lists the following: oud, floral notes, woody notes and saffron.
All of that is present but the individual notes total a different story as I’ve explained above.
excellent, rich, luxurious.
This is a heavy perfume which is by far my favourite perfume by a western perfume house. Very nice oud and saffron notes, it is very warm and deeply comforting.
