Fragrance "A royal bouquet of sustainable and vintage ouds from around the world. A spray or dab alone is exquisite and transportative. When used for meditation or other sacred work, it elevates the seeker to higher planes by opening pathways in the brain which enable us to connect with e Divine. No arti cial oud whatsoever - all varieties are 100% natural and sustainable. The perfect oud for your fragrance layering experiments." - a note from the brand. Eaglewood was launched in 2011. The nose behind this fragrance is Christi Meshell. Perfume rating: 4.23 out of 5 with 13 votes. Quick Story Dry dusty traditional natural incense musk is how I would describe the house accord a lot of Matriarch fragrances are backed by. Good news the oud in here is legit. And it is my absolute favorite note against her incense musk. It flat out works and works well, not just saying that because it’s oud. This is my absolute favorite from the house and I have tried over ten. Others are good, but this is an absolute stand out. Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes Yes has oud check. Oud is well chosen whether it has multiple varietals I can’t tell. I can tell it smells really good. It it soft and funky. Funk is in form of a lovely medicinal note that is extremely softened by incense. This is like having and oud incense burning on your arm. It’s got a slight touch of ambergris, but if it were real I’m positive she would list it as a note. The guess is it’s a synthetic ambergris that makes this 98% or so natural. I get a sweet bouquet of florals in the top. The kind of floral notes that come from natural oud maybe in the realm of frangipani.

  1. She's market to high end and celebrities? Seriously? The nose appeared on QVC once to promote Coco Blanc ????

    A bit surprised to hear that Areej le Dore and Ensar uses their cheaper ouds. Why did you say it's cheaper? (e.g. because it smells unrefined maybe?)

    1. The only fact I am stating is the price tag. Who else can afford full retail. I don't think its a bad thing at all going after a high end client. Would you say not to money. My problem is that literally there is two different price points and you have to figure out her system to get bottles at half off. I have same issue with Creed. If they can sell juice at over $10 an ml to people no problem I love a free market. I just don't like people feeling ripped off if they didn't know how to get it at a huge discount when everyone else did. The celebrity comment is a reference to them being featured as a gift from a rewards show. I would suggest anyone who thinks they have a good product to go that route. You have to market your product it's business.

    2. Regarding the oud comments they are not using Kyara or Kinam grade ouds. Cheap as in cost compared to other costs of ouds in there collection. As far as quality neither of them have cheap quality even there lowest cost ouds are of exceptional qualtiy. They put in there lower cost distillations in there perfumes. Otherwise price would be out of this world.. Not saying smell is cheap at all I hope that is clear. As long as Oud is 100% it adds so much beauty to a composition. Your more expensive distillations stand as there own perfume.
