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. This is an opulent Arabian perfume born out of a western sensitivity.

As majestically romantic as a grand aria, Silk Oud sings with a rich, seamless soprano. A fragrance governed by an aerial energy, reminiscent of the slip of trapeze silks or the soft caress of rose petals dragged across skin, Oud Silk Mood exudes charm and mystery. An initial sketch is drawn with the finely formed, tender tips of Bulgarian rose, like the softest utterings of a note. This rose is clean, and bittersweet, a formidable bloom in and of itself, but an ideal match for oud and the other elements of Oud Silk Mood.

Blue chamomile is (at first) a strange, slightly medicinal floral that blooms into a deeply aromatic sweetness, the bass harmony to rose’s melody. If chamomile is bass, papyrus is alto, its dynamic texture a proverbial breath of fresh air in this concentrated composition. In this inventive reimagining of the classic rose and oud combination, oud sheds it’s spicy, dark intensity and rises to meet rose on it’s own ethereal (yet intrinsically grounded), airborne, magical floral plane.

Like a piece of music that literally carves images into the air, Silk Oud is a sounded mural of rose, oud and harmonious attachments. Entrancing and addictive, Oud Silk is so smooth, soft and suggestive it renders the wearer irresistible.

(rose petals, Bulgarian rose, blue chamomile, papyrus, oud)
