A wonderful warm, elegant and unique fragrance.
Oudh is hot! It is a type of wood that is called oud, oudh or agar wood, and it was recently also discovered by Western perfumers as an intriguing element for perfumes..
For a while now, various prestigious and niche fragrance houses have been developing perfumes based on oudh. In OUD by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, East meets West: accessible yet provocative and intriguing at the same time. Discover this intimate fragrance composed out of authentic natural oudh form Laos, cedar wood, patchouli, saffron and elemi resin.
A quote by The Candy Boy: "It is as smooth and delicate as silk with a beautiful, woody and smoky aura."
Persolaise: "For a start, it undoubtedly earns its name: be it synthetic or natural, there's something in this juice that smells very believably oud-y (or, for the uninitiated: woody, leathery, faecal, boozy, earthy and petrol-like). It plays down the animalic aspects and opts to extend the drier, more peppery facets with the addition of Atlas cedar wood and elemi. ....... it’s good stuff! The balance between the two elements is as impressive as a bridge spanning the Bosphorus. The oud never stops being an oud and the lighter, safer (dare I say: preppier) facet holds its own too. Just when you think the equilibrium has shattered and the whole has given way to bland hygiene, something darker in the structure rises to the surface for a moment and gives you a reassuring wink. And like any scent that leans heavily on musks, it melts with the wearer's skin and displays impressive tenacity."
