Kayali Oudgasm Collection Review

 Hi, dolls!
It's time to introduce you all to the newest Kayali Oudgasm collection including four beautiful scents and the brand new Fragrance Oud Wood! If you're interested to find out all about it, let's get right into the review!

The Oudgasm collection consists of four beautiful intense fragrances crafted with passion and inspired by Mona Kattan's intense love for oud. This collection celebrates the many facets of one of perfume's most precious and opulent ingredients. These four, unisex scents were designed to magnify the magic of oud and explore the infinite universe of layering possibilities. Intense, sensual and luxurious, each fragrance offers a modern twist on the art and rituals of Middle Eastern fragrance layering - ready to be shared with the entire world.

Kayali Oudgasm Vanilla Oud | 36 EDP Intense is an enticingly rich fragrance that balances the sublime beauty and comfort of our hero note Vanilla, the warmth and spice of Saffron, the sweetness of Praline and the magic of Oud. This fragrance is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.

Top Notes: Praline, Saffron, Pear
Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose
Base Notes: Vanilla Sugar, White Musk, Cashmere Wood, Oud, Oakmoss

To me, Vanilla Oud | 36 has a very soft and sweet opening due to the Praline and the Saffron in its top notes and soon after, it's followed with the clean and powdery Bulgarian Rose. As soon as it dries down, you get the notes of Vanilla, Musk, Cashmere and of course Oud come forward. It's a warm and sensual scent, a more mature version of Vanilla | 28 because of the Oud addition in the base notes. Out of the entire Oudgasm collection, Vanilla Oud | 36 has the least Oud intensity and it's great to begin your Oud fragrance journey with. 

Kayali Oudgasm Cafe Oud | 19 EDP Intense is a sensually electrifying fragrance that combines creamy notes of Cappuccino, a vibrant heart of Rose & Geranium and a woody resinous Oud. This fragrance is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.

Top Notes: Cappuccino, Mandarin Orange, Bergamot
Middle Notes: Geranium, Rose
Base Notes: Oud, Vanilla, White Musk, Patchouli

Cafe Oud | 19 has a very refreshing opening with the notes of Mandarin Orange and Bergamot and although the Cappuccino is a top note, I actually get it at all times. Soon after, the middle notes of Geranium and Rose are strongly present. As it dries down, the Oud and Vanilla come through but the freshness of the top notes and the creaminess of the Cappuccino note are very much present at all times. If you dislike Coffee and the smell of it, do not be put off this scent as it's rather creamy than strong coffee scent with the addition of refreshing citrusy and floral notes. Cafe Oud | 19 is placed second with its least Oud intensity and great to also begin your Oud fragrance journey with. 

Kayali Oudgasm Rose Oud | 16 EDP Intense is an ode to the queen of flowers, the rose. This rare elixir is an opulent blend of iconic notes - sparkling and playful Pear, carnal and rebellious Rose and mysterious Oud. This fragrance is cruelty-free.

Top Notes: Geranium, Lemon, Pear
Middle Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Peony
Base Notes: Oud, Vanilla, Cashmere Wood

Rose Oud | 16 has the second strongest Oud intensity and to me, is very feminine and soft but still Oud fragrance. The opening of this fragrance is very fresh with the notes of Lemon, Pear and followed with the floral heart with notes of Bulgarian Rose and Peony. As it dries down, we get a gorgeous base of creamy Oud and Vanilla notes mixed beautifully well with the Cashmere Wood. Out of the four Oudgasm fragrances, this one is the most romantic and would make a great wedding scent!

Kayali Oudgasm Tobacco Oud | 04 EDP Intense is an enigmatic fragrance that explores the power and opulence of Oud when blended with juicy Mandarin, sweet and honeyed Tobacco and spicy hints of Clove and Saffron. This fragrance is vegan friendly and cruelty-free.

Top Notes: White Honey, Mandarin Orange, Sage, Geranium, Plum
Middle Notes: Saffron, Clove
Base Notes: Tobacco, Praline, Oud, Vanilla, Benzoin, Patchouli

Out of the entire Oudgasm collection, Tobacco Oud | 04 has the strongest Oud intensity and is perfect for all Oud lovers. The opening of this fragrance is bittersweet with the mixture of Honey, Mandarin, Sage, Plum and Geranium and soon after, the spicy warmth of Clove becomes present. As it dries down, it's a stunning, sweet and smoky Tobacco Oud scent and this enchanting combination leaves a long-lasting scent trait wherever you go. 

To complete the Oudgasm fragrance layering ritual, Kayali is venturing into the world of perfumed oud wood that complements each of the four EDP Intense fragrances. Also known as Bakhoor, burning these wood chips will help create a beautiful, intense and long-lasting scentscape with its rich, perfumed smoke. Oud wood is also known to relive stress and produce feelings of calmness and serenity, it helps to bring balance to your home environment and self & is said to neutralise negative energy, enhance awareness and evoke feelings of tranquility and relaxation. 

Final Thoughts
I think the Oudgasm collection created by Mona Kattan is truly a masterpiece. It introduces us to the intensity, the richness and the beauty of Oud, one of the most expensive ingredients in perfumery, commonly referred to as 'liquid gold' in the industry. It's also a fragrance ingredient that can tell so many stories and I'm so glad Mona decided to create a full collection rather than release one Oud-focused fragrance. The addition of Bakhoor and the perfumed Oud wood has also been very exciting and I am so happy to now own one in my house!  Out of the entire collection, Cafe Oud | 19 is my favourite but there isn't one scent I don't enjoy. I reach for different one depending on my mood and the Oud intensity I want to go each day.

  1. STUNNING! Do you own every Kayali possible?!

  2. Tobacco Oud is perfection. As a male, I didn't find many Kayali's stand out to me like this one did. I am considering grabbing more of their previous scents to layer on top of this masterpiece.

  3. Visited Harrods recently and there was the most gorgeous set up for this collection. I find Vanilla Oud to be my favourite out of the four, however there is something about Tobbaco Oud that kept me intrigued. Excellent collection for sure.
