Neela Vermeire Creations Mohur Extrait Perfume Review

Neela Vermeire Mohur Extrait

Neela Vermeire Creations Mohur is one of those few perfumes that I’m always in the mood for. It’s a gourmand rose with leather. Mohur is one of my favorite roses. There’s now a limited edition extrait available.

Mohur Extrait opens with a cherry tobacco and coriander aldehydes. Mohur Extrait reminds me very much of the EDP; however, the extrait is richer, deanser and deeper. There’s a sharp, dry camphoric element (from oud and patchouli) that cuts through the sweetness of the rose and carrot pudding. Mohur is such an interesting fragrance because of how it balances coolness and warmth. The carrot, iris and ambrette are cool and earthy. The base is warm and spicy. The rose in the Extrait is dense and jammy. It has everything that I like in a rose – fruity blackcurrants and spice. The base of the fragrance is amazing. It’s a spicy sandalwood incense with a soft suede.

Like the EDP, the Extrait is absolutely gorgeous. It’s basically a more concentrated version of the EDP.

Notes listed include cardamom, coriander, ambrette, carrot seeds, pepper, elemi, iris, jasmine, rose, violet, almond, leather, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, oud, benzoin, vanilla and tonka bean. Launched 2013. PERFUMER – Bertrand Duchafour

Give Mohur Extrait a try if you like complex roses. Or if you like perfumes like Guerlain Nahema, Mona di Orio Rose Etolie de Hollande, Les Parfums de Rosine Kashmirie and/or Neela Vermeire Mohur EDP.

This is an extrait so it is very long-wearing. Projection is average. It wears closer to the skin than the EDP.

The 1.7 oz extrait retails for $475 at Luckyscent and Neela Vermeire (EU). Samples are also available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONA more concentrated Mohur (gourmand rose and suede). I really, really like it. However, it’s pricey. Personally, I don’t buy perfumes in this price range but if you feel like splurging on beautiful perfumes, this is one worth sampling. Now saying that, if you have the EDP, you can probably live without this one. Extrait is stunning but the differences are rather subtle for the $200+ price difference. I’m trying to be a voice of reason here 🙂

  1. This is a lovely one. And I like the others in the line. Not enough to purchase a full bottle, but maybe a largeish decant. I think I have found my rose with Velvet Rose from Sonoma Scents, but am always open.
    And by the way voice of reason..you saw the La Panthere bottle on Now Smell This. the one and only one craved from rock crystal with a solid gold vail of the perfume in it? Only a mere $245,000. OK that goes way, way beyond the vor, but holy sh*t, Batman. Talk about bottle lust! It is truly a work of art, but wow, when I see things like that I get a twinge of ‘really..really, some people must really have too much money’. And I think of myself as a pragmatic capitalist. I hope you are feeling better and have a wonderful Christmas season.

    1. Oh, Velvet Rose. It’s really amazing. One of my favorites.

      Regarding the price of the Extrait, it’s not in my price range. But, I guess if you were the type of person that only buys one perfume a year (and can afford it), it’s not so bad. I’d say most hardcore perfume lovers easily spend that on perfume a year between samples, decants, impulse purchases 🙂

      Oh, gawd, I saw that. Gorgeous. Like really does belong in a museum.

      Thank you and hope you have a great Christmas too!

  2. Ugh! I really wish I liked spicy rose scents! I’d never buy this at that price of course but y’all who like the dark, spice laden oriental roses make them sound like da bomb. I’ve tried sooo many, including the EDP of this, and they’re just too much for me. Wooden mallet…head. I do love the straightforward rose soliflores or fruity light roses though. Wish I could revel with ya! 🙂

    1. I’m such a rose person. Really the only ones that I dislike are the ones that lean into some sort of household cleaner territory (which is OK if it is a household cleaner, lol).

      Just revel in the fact that you don’t like something in this price range. Not lemming can be a great thing 🙂
