L’Artisan Parfumeur Al Oudh EDP Perfume Review

L'Artisan Parfumuer Al Oudh EDP

L’Artisan Parfumeur Al Oudh is unlike anything else in the L’Artisan line. It’s filthy. It’s dirty and it doesn’t fit with those “usual” Giacobetti blends in the line.

The first time I wore Al Oudh, I expected some rose-oud thing that we’re all used to.

Lumberjack Werewolf is a limited edition fragrance featured in Smell Bent’s Attack of the Killer Smellies Collection for Halloween 2010. This collection features 4 spooky inspired scents that will only be available until November 1st.
