OUD Satin Mood conveys the desire to bring a shimmering Orient to life. You’ll want to wrap it around you, lose yourself in the depth of the moment and suspend time.

– Damascena Rose Essence from Turkey
– Centifolia Rose Absolute from Tunisia
– Natural Oud from Laos
– Amber and Vanilla Accord

I was out with my bestie (her husband was traveling on a business trip, which meant carte blanche on his Porsche) and after we took her hubby’s Porsche out for a spin, ended up at 360 Mall, because I really wanted to watch the movie “Escape Room“. It was an enjoyable movie (and had that one vampire girl from True Blood in it), but on our way out, I spotted dis!

I’ve only ever heard of Oud Satin Mood Eau de Parfum, but never in a million years would’ve imagined that it was actually available in Kuwait! It took forever for the customers (two veiled women) to leave the place (not about to get sued, bruh), so I could finally take a photo from above. I thought I had my Perfume obsession sichi-yay-shun under control, but this incident just reignited the whole thing! We had to get back home because it was close to midnight and Arab families tend to be uptight about females (regardless of age) being outdoors after midnight (we’re kinda’ like Gremlins in that sense lol).

However, at a much later date, I did manage to spot a store at The Avenues (top floor… I wanna’ say above the Bath & Body Works store facing Carrefour) that sold Francis Kurkdjian Fragrances! I had the pleasure of sniffing Oud Silk Mood and Oud Velvet Mood and Oud Satin Mood. I totally understand why Oud Satin Mood was the most popular! I didn’t want to overwhelm my olfactory senses, which is why I decided to just stick with those three, and even took the fragrance-tester paper-strips back home with me, to sniff them again, the next day. That said, I’m totally going back to that same store at some point, to give Grand Soir and Baccarat Rouge 540 a sniff!

On a completely unrelated note (sorta’), I also spotted Amouage at The Avenues (kinda’ across Harvey Nichols) and finally managed to sniff Amouage Sunshine! It had been on my hit-list for quite some time now! For that price, I don’t know what I was expecting, but it definitely wasn’t this lol The packaging was hideous, but that’s okay because, well… Arabs. The scent however, seemed like something you could totally find at Bath & Body Works! lol The only exception being that most Bath & Body Works scents are completely gone within minutes, whereas Amouage Sunshine last and lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts (I’m talking weeks) on paper!
