I bet many people would be turned off by this human scent that falls in the same category as the even better "Musc Koublai Khan" by Serge Lutens. Both are aggressive, beastly, sweaty, and sort of wrong. Both include the smell of deep dark musks and cumin and, er, various human products. I found Al Oudh more feminine, however. It offers more spices and a sharp tangy oud note, making it a very private pleasure. To be perfectly blunt, it smells like a wet vagina.
