ODE TO OUD
4 x 2ml
Ode to Oud: Carved Oud, Riviére, Nassak, Peacock Throne
From the temperate to the tempestuous, this collection gleams blends that are earthy, sweet, rich and textured – an oud for everyone.
The unique oud from the South of India, angular and sweetly edgy, dictates this heavenly scent. The top note blends beautifully with cedar wood and guaiac. At the base, a pure patchouli and sun-baked vetivert add depth and warmth polished off by a smooth, temperate musk.
Shimmering at the top, spiced notes of Indian black pepper and Persian saffron meld mellifluously into cinnamon from Ceylon and a luminous lemon blossom accord. This dazzling opening segues into a deep, faceted heart of Russian clary sage over Turkish rose and carnation, polished with a warm, burnished patchouli from Indonesia. The iridescent base of golden amber and oud, infused with soft, opulent Indian cypriol and a sun drenched leather enrich this jewel with a dark resinous glow.
The scent opens with a bright, glowing, opulent combination of Taif rose and saffron, warm yet iridescent. This segues seamlessly into a glossy heart of plum – the bitter-sweetness a perfect balance for sparkling cedar and the fizz of sandalwood. At the base, a gilded triumvirate of vanilla, tonka and musk cushion the scent on a pillow, deep and textured – and finally the merest echo of ambergris.
The scent opens with luminous Indian jasmine, Egyptian orris and pink pepper pearls. At its heart lies the rose of Taif, one of the oldest cities in Arabia, its ruby glow, full and extravagant. At the base, rich warmth comes through the princely patchouli, sparkling vetiver and burnished vanilla.
