Oud Orange Intense was not one that I've heard a lot of praise for, but I really enjoyed it. It's a very accessible sweet warm scent. In that way it's not the most unique style of fragrance, but I really like how it's executed. There's a bit of fruitiness (not strictly orange), but it's more of a sweet fruitiness. The same goes for the coconut; it's not a soapy, sun tan lotion style coconut, but more of a sweet coconut (more like a coconut product like a Bounty and not an actual coconut). The vanilla is strong and there's a pretty substantial dose of musk, giving it a bit of a rougher edge than the other scents that I've tried from this house. It reminded me a little bit of the drydown of Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Grand Soir (when the greenish labdanum vibe is gone), with some added coconut shavings. Overall it's really easy to like. The problem is that it feels like more of a 'common' scent, which at it's price gives it a hard time with so many great vanilla-centric fragrances out there.
I hope you're not tired of all the Fragrance Du Bois posts yet, because I have 16 more samples to discover. The only one out of the new batch that I've tried so far is Santal Complet and I can already spoil that it's an even better and more coconut forward scent that would make #2
