i love this oud. the tobacco, and maybe a note of dried fruit give it some sweetness (not too sweet, tho'). smoke comes later, which i love. sillage is pretty good as my husband just walked in a couple of rooms away and asked if i'd just gotten into my ouds! the longevity is great. i'm thrilled that i found oudimentary, having worn oud fragrances for years and wanting to delve into oils.
Good product and service. Would recommend.
Tarakan definitely gives me the feeling of walking through a forest! Wearing it throughout the day provided me a relaxing, centering feeling as well.
