Smelling great surely draws compliments. So when it comes to choosing a certain type of scent whether I need for my daily work or for a special occasion, I always see to it that I don’t just buy any cologne.
I purchase the one that can give you that distinct and appealing scent, the kind of fragrance that separates you from the rest. And this is basically what the Creed Royal Oud Cologne is about.
With many people requesting that the brand adapts scent that perfectly embodies and represents the House of Creed, the brand came up with the Royal Oud Cologne, a fragrance that is inspired by the majestic Persian royalty and classic Parisian style.
The name of the cologne is pretty much straightforward, a royal scent that gives you that regal experience.

Launched in 2011, the Royal Oud is a classic fougere and stylish fragrance that gives you a perfect combination and amalgam of green, woody and spicy notes.
The oud note is at the very heart of this cologne which balances the other notes.
Top notes for this cologne include bergamot, pink berry and lemon. The scent is then followed by angelic root, galbanum and cedar. The base notes include Tonkin musk, Regal Indian oud and sandalwood.
The combination of these ingredients give you that spicy fragrance that is balanced by the woodsy notes and the regal oud element.
With these ingredients, the brand was able to come up with a well-balanced cologne that has a royal scent that exhibits gallantry and finesse.
Composition: What I really like about the Royal Oud is its very composition. It is not your usual spicy fragrance since the brand was able to perfectly combine and balance out the different notes of spicy, woody and green elements that gives you a royal like experience.
Whenever I use this cologne, it always reminds me of the glorious days of the Persian and grand royal palaces.
The very first time I tried this scent, I knew it’s going to be one of my favorites. It has this really pleasant and rich smell that exudes elegance and a good balance.
Best Use: Considering how the Royal Oud Cologne smells like, I feel like wearing it everyday. It has this really amazing scent that you cannot find in most signature fragrances these days. But what I do notice is that it is more of a summer scent.
The cologne is perfectly suitable for warm weather. In as much as I would want to wear this scent on a daily basis, I personally think that it is more suitable for special occasions when you have to put on that tuxedo.
When you attend evening occasions and you have to wear a really nice suit, this is the cologne to wear. You can never go wrong with Royal Oud Cologne.
Longevity: Now most people have concerns with the longevity of a scent especially when it has this really amazing scent. The good thing is that this cologne has excellent longevity. Yes! It lasts for several hours and I can attest for that.
I have tried wearing Royal Oud for different night occasions and it would always last for hours although I notice that after 4 hours the scent gradually dwindles. But this always happens to most colognes so it is not big deal.
With how elegant the Creed Royal Oud is packaged, the inspiration behind its creation and the over-all scent quality, I just cannot find anything negative that will stop me from repurchasing this product again.
The only thing that I know will prevent others from using this cologne is if they do not like this type of scent. But in my case, I’m such a huge fan of spicy and fougere scent.
This cologne is truly an embodiment of the royalty which make me feel like I am a royal person myself whenever I wear this cologne. And yet, it can just be me.
But over-all, this cologne is highly recommended for both men and women, a must-try!
