The duo Oud Immortelle and Accord Oud are both created around oud, a certain type of wood that because of its use in incense and perfumes, has gained great cultural significance and has gotten its existence recorded into one of the world’s oldest written texts–the Sanskrit Vedas from India. When the once light heartwood from the Aquilaria tree becomes infected with a specific type of mold, it defends itself by saturating its core with dark, highly fragrant resins. This dark wood, oud or agarwood holds a complex fragrance, resembling few or no other natural ingredients.
Oud Immortelle is aptly named: this fragrance captures the indefinable allure of oud. Cardamom and incense engineer a smoky-spicy beginning, easing the wearer into the funky power and playful spirit of oud. Brazilian rosewood is like a trumpet, a polished, solid sound with which the reedy music of papyrus and the viola-like sweetness of patchouli combine to play in honor of the musical dynamism of oud. Moss and tobacco leaves create a dry yet supple base mirroring the aloof, androgynous beauty that oud embodies. Oud Immortelle is sure to worm its way into your heart, and inspire undying love.
