This loud and proud oud and rose powerhouse combination is exquisitely dry, wickedly cold, and while there is a secondary woodiness, there is also a hint of something herbaceous as well. Yes, this can be unisex... if you are a lover of rose--- as the oud resounds boom mode in major clap-back. The opening on this one is not for the faint of heart. This volatile beauty imprisons, envelops and holds tight. You don't wear this one...it wears you.
