Oud Rain is a complex, distinctive oud fragrance with an underlying non-vanillic sweetness. Ripe, creamed fruits play beautifully against a backdrop of dry, green woods. It's like a hurricane has just passed through an island, leaving a scent trail of mangoes and palm trees in the lingering breeze. While the fragrance features notes of mango, plum, papaya, pineapple, and tangerine, it isn't necessarily conspicuously fruity, and it isn't syrupy-sweet nor juvenile. Oud definitely dominates this concoction.
