Mancera Aoud Violet

Aoud Violet
Top note: I get a substantial opening of agarwood. To me, this has the wrong aspect of aoud/oud/agarwood. I find it to be rubbery and bitter. I also get the unappealing note from sticky cannabis resin that stays on your hands after trimming weed all day. I can not detect any violet in this scent even though it is in the name. Mid-day: There is an excellent base to this scent, and I thought it would come through, but unfortunately, it did not. The top notes would not give way to complexity underneath. At the price point that they are asking for “Aoud Violet,” I would not expect to smell like the tire rack on gasoline ally. Longevity is not an issue with this. It will last into the evening. This is probably someone’s favorite cologne, but it is not the one for me. I will not be rocking this one again.
