Heeley Agarwoud Parfum Extrait Perfume Review

Heeley Agarwoud Extrait perfume

OK, I can hear you grumbling. Another oud by a niche brand? Yep. I grumbled too. I’m sick of oud, rose-oud, oud for dudes, oud is good because it’s so expensive, etc. Heeley Agarwoud is different than other rose-ouds that I’ve tried. Somehow this oud wears as a pretty, pretty princess oud on me. It’s not dirty or aggressive. It’s actually really pretty.

Heeley Agarwoud opens with a fruity blueberry rose with woods. To my surprise the opening is bubbly and effervescent with fruits and roses. The oud in this is not dirty. The oud actually leans towards an indolic, sweeter floral…like oud jasmine. The heart is a soft rose floral with fruits. I still get an overripe blueberry. The base dries down to soft woods. This is the cleanest oud I’ve ever tried. It’s almost comes across as an oud for traditional brides. This cleanliness will gain Agarwoud some fans and it will push away “hardcore” oud lovers.

Notes listed include oud, rose, amber, and incense.

Give it a try if you are looking for a not-so-aggressive oud. Or if you like perfumes like YSL Paris (seriously), Givenchy Dahlia Noir, Creed Love in Black, and/or Maison Francis Kurkdjian Oud. Agarwoud is unisex, leans feminine on my skin. If you are looking for a “dirty” oud, don’t try this. If you want to like oud fragrances, but find most of them offensive to your nose, try Agarwoud.

Agarwoud is an extrait, a parfum. I find that it has average projection and disappointingly below average longevity. I’m lucky to get 4 hours of wear out of this before it completely fades away.

The 1.7 oz spray of Agarwoud retails for $230 at MiN NY.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONFruity floral oud. This is the pretty, pretty princess of the world of oud perfumes. It’s nice, not me. I am disappointed in how quickly it fades. This could be me, but I hear others complain about it as well.

    • This pic makes me want to get married again and have her look and dress.
      Another oud? Will it ever end? No. I do like how this one is “oud” but it isn’t about the oud, oud should be used like a condiment IMO and not as the main dish.
