Oud Imperial


Pin It Fancy

Oud Imperial: Due to a quirk of nature, the rarest, most precious of perfumes is born from an imperfection. The Aquilaria tree produces a dark, aromatic resin to defend itself from a particular mould. Different peoples have called it Gaharu, Jinko, Aloe, Agarwood or simply Oud.

This concept of perfume dates back to the Bible, evoking the deepest contemplation and the warmest sensuality in equal measure. Today’s rediscovery of Oud lies at the heart of our formula. Accompanying it are dark and golden notes of Mandarin, Incense, Papyrus, Patchouli, Laudanum, Cedar, Java Vetiver, Birch and Sandalwood. Yet just beneath them, a dark, woody fragrance releases all its mystical powers of seduction.

Notes: Top notes are Cumin, Caraway and Jasmine; middle notes are Agarwood (Oud), Incense, Patchouli and Saffron; base notes are Blackwood, Labdanum, Vetiver, Sandalwood and Cedar.
