A fresh soaring fragrance, Incense Oud combines the best of the earthly and the ethereal. Initially sweet and luminous, Incense oud streams, like sunlight through stained glass, illuminating every molecule in its path. Artemisia is slightly bitter but mostly sweet and its floral aromatics tempers the more luxuriant, honeyed textures of davana. Ambrette silently insulates, a lush cushion that builds up a pressure-full air of suspense around oud. Oud is straight up strong yet distinctly creamy, demonstrating that to be truly strong is also to be flexible. As oud’s milky intensity flexes and flows through the remainder of this scent, it curls around, nestles and absorbs future elements, like a river continuously readjusting its banks and bed. Through oud, coriander unveils a fruity, liquor-like aspect, reminding us of fresh brandy or herbal aquavit. A woody patchouli is interwoven with the subtle, sweet burn of Atlas cedar, engineering a heart that is solid yet distinctly amorphous. Resins, leather and animalic notes ground this unique fragrance, impregnated into the molten flow of oud by a ghost-like stork of incense. Original and tenacious, Incense Oud awakens and soothes, the perfect balm to modulate the demands of the modern moment.
