Product Description:

Oud is a star of perfumery that is one of this century's rarest and most expensive natural raw materials. It took Francis Kurkdjian some time before he reached out for oud’s olfactory power and integrated it into his personal realm of practice. For Kurkdjian, oud conveys mystery, a bewitching narcotic that’s truly magnificent.

The first of this series, Oud is a remarkably clean, androgynous yet majestic fragrance. This scent story is a sketch of the fine-grained, desert sand, harmattan wind and the star-studded night - an opulent Arabian perfume born out of a western sensitivity. Saffron sparkles, tiny pinpricks of bright light against this layered canvas. Cedarwood emits an unusually dense and sweet smoke, it’s burn faintly reminiscent of the dry, rosey aspect of hot labdanum. Yet just as cedar verges on the floral, patchouli reorganizes this mix and adds an additional note of fiery - yet fruity - intensity.

Green as an unripened pear and as dry as the embers of a fire, patchouli packs a punch rich in contrasts. The self-same note that holds the center of Oud is characteristically funky, yet perfectly designed for this savory-sweet, windswept, midnight desert it’s situated within.

Oud is a mid-weight, long lasting, closely calibrated scent. Like the golden aura of daylight that glimmers along the edge of a dune bathed in moonlight, this feels improbably perfect. Wear a halo of heavenly, celestial Oud.
