Oud Thaqueel 2015. Sniffing the vial there is a hint of barn that almost entirely vanished on contact with my skin. Initial application is camphorous almost in a EO Tigerwood '95 kind of style but much more rough, raw and unready, however there is no denying it's potency. On the edges are rose, violets in cream and a distinct Oudy kick. Five minutes in it has spun around and become a more nuanced, sweeter FO Old School Thai still with the rose and violet backdraft. <review is being conducted live from 21:05 CET> Well, my live review style totally failed with me falling asleep next to a restless girl. Pfffft. I will carry on where I left off yesterday, how annoying that life often gets in the way of Oud appreciation. It gradually evolves into a perfume like concoction, hard to pin down specific notes except woody, phenolic-medicinal and camphorous. This does sound unappealing but if one were to imagine a band aid sent from above then this would be it.
