A soft and insinuating take on the mystical aoud. The opening is powdery and slightly antiseptic, but this fragrance quickly blooms on the skin gentle roses, delicate spices and ethereal incense on a creamy bed of amber and sandalwood. A judicious swirl of sweet vanilla smoothes out the blend, but never takes over the scent. If you love Black Aoud, but find it too intense for everyday wear, this is the answer. Do not be alarmed all of this creamy softness has not banished the compelling complexity of the oud. It is still here, sensuous and edgy and dream inducing, making this a comfort scent that will never be mistaken for ordinary. Our fragrance geek side marvels at how perfectly balanced this is, our diva side just wants to wear it because its gorgeous. Subtle and beautiful.
