After giving Blue Oud by Lattafa a few wearings, I decided to help those that were wondering what this smelled like, since there is only Oud listed on this web page.

Blue Oud by Lattafa comes in a blue felt-lined box. The bottle is blue-colored and would look great in any collection. The cap fits snugly on top of the bottle and has the word Opulent engraved at the bottom of the cap.

I am listing the ingredients along with their scent profiles.

The box for Blue Oud by Lattafa lists the following ingredients, in order:
Alcohol denatured
Parfum (Fragrance)
Aqua (water)
Linalool: sweet lavender with a touch of citrus
Citronellol: short burst of sweet lemon, which is quickly replaced by the slightly more pungent typical citronella-candle scent. The overall impression however, remains fresh and green and develops a more rose-like, diffusive and slightly oily character over time.
Limonene: smells of oranges.
Coumarin: Is usually derived from the tonka bean and has a sweet odor profile, said to evoke both the scent of newly-mown grass or hay and a distinctive vanilla aroma.
Alpha-Isomethylionone: woody, violet, floral, orris, powdery.
Citral: a lemon-like odor.
Geraniol: waxy, sweet rose odor.

When sprayed on, I smell floral and citrus notes. After a good while, I detect a very muted musk (possibly?). Due to the cheap price, if there is any oud here, it is definitely synthetic. Personally, I smell no oud.

It seems like Blue Oud would be a good fragrance to wear during the cooler months of the year. Projection was within an arm's length. Longevity was around 7 hours on my skin, becoming a skin scent at the 5 hour mark.

Do not confuse Lattafa's Blue Oud with Arabian Oud's Blue Oud. Though they share the same name, they are not at all alike. Arabian Oud's version is a lot more expensive, contains Cambodian Oud, Blue Musk, and Indian Agar Wood. Also, Arabian Oud's version comes with both an EdP and a bottle of oil.

If you are looking for something cheap to wear with mostly citrus and floral, that will also look nice in your collection, go for the Lattafa. If you want real oud with musk, get Arabian Oud's version. Arabian Oud has my vote.

For myself, Blue Oud by Lattafa is more of a "Like" than a "Love" but for the nice cheap price, it is not bad at all.
