The company says:
For Delphine Jelk, the cherry laced with provocative charm at the heart of Cherry Oud calls to mind the bright, glossy red that Jeff Koons uses to coat his creations. Crafted in chrome steel, this artist’s most iconic works are then finished with gleaming, vivid red. Cherry red, of course.

Latest Reviews of Cherry Oud
This composition is very much oud and lots of smoke! You would have to like high levels of smoke to enjoy this. It’s almost like burning tires painted with a cherry lacquer. Except…not very cherry. More lacquer. It creates a motor oil vibe.
This has 0% in common with the Tom Ford cherries, or any other cherries I’ve experienced. This is really out there. Oud Nude gives me way more cherry, actually. The almond takes on that vibe and if you like an oud with a hint of cherry, Oud Nude is where you’ll find it. Oud Nude is a must try if that’s what you’re going for!
An hour in I am recognizing the oud more. I'd say the cherry and leather are about equal to it, so far.
Two hours in: we still have cherry, but it's a sour cherry. For sure. I still like it though.
I'm a fan of Tom Ford's Lost Cherry, but this ain't that. I do not think Cherry Oud is an appropriate blind buy, not at Guerlain prices. Lost Cherry is a sweet fluffy gourmand, and Cherry Oud is much more like you're wearing a slightly sweaty leather jacket made of dried cherries.
(Lol I am just not the best when it comes to identifying notes at all, and modern perfumers use a lot of that chemical called Iso E which I cannot smell. I've gotten samples of it from various sources and my kids and husband can smell it but I just get a whiff of cedar and then nothing. If anger had a smell, it would be Iso E Super. I don't know if there's any Iso E in Cherry Oud; but if there is, my experience of this fragrance may be vastly different from yours.)
