Fragrantica lists hawthorn in the top and oud in the base. I know hawthorn well! The trees smell a lot like rotting flesh when blooming. The notes make this one sound like it could be a beast of sorts.
A fragrance with the prefix "royal" in it. How novel and original!
From your description, this one sounds very nice.It's really good. Interlude Man/GPH II meets Hard Leather. Longevity is very good - 24 hours plus on my skin albeit a skin scent by then but I asked 2 of my friends to sniff my hand and they could smell it clearly.
The tea note is really well done and lasts. The leather is not particularly skanky and adds the right amount of substance.
Oud is noticeable although not overbearing.
I like the direction Kilian has been heading in with newer releases such as Pearl Oud and this.
