Oud for Greatness

Oud for Greatness is pure ambition in a bottle. As mentioned before, it is part of the Black Gold project collection from Initio Parfums Privés, which heavily features the oud wood note. Here, the accord is used boldly and heavily, only made more intense by whispers of patchouli and musk. The composition is almost brutal, with only lavender adding a subtle touch of freshness. There’s also a bit of brightness here, lended by nutmeg and saffron.

Atomic Rose

Perfumers all over the world have looked to the rose for centuries, utilizing its heady and enchanting scent to provide heat and passion to their creations. Atomic Rose is Initio Parfums Privés’ tribute to the bloom that has always represented feverish and ardent love. The brand has chosen Bulgarian and Turkish roses to be the heart of this fragrance, accented by bright Italian bergamot and softened by Egyptian jasmine. Vanilla from exotic Madagascar adds warmth and sweetness to this intoxicating scent that is a celebration of contrasts: it is feminine and masculine, light and shadow, soft yet explosive, all at once.

Absolute Aphrodisiac

An aphrodisiac is defined as any substance that can increase sexual desire and attraction. Absolute Aphrodisiac is a celebration of these utterly primal urges, carnal and unapologetic.

Amber and vanilla are revealed at its heart, founded on timeless and enduring accords of musk and castoreum.

Blessed Baraka

Baraka or barakah is an Arabic word that has three meanings: “growth and increase”, “continuity”, and “stability”. In Islam, it is a blessing power, a force that flows directly from God towards objects that are worthy of it and back. Blessed Baraka is an expression of the joy of being one of the chosen ones, wrapping the wearer with an intangible sense of power and renewed energy. The composition makes use of the freshness of white flowers which then open up to a heart composed of amber, musk, and creamy sandalwood, all resting on a foundation of delectable vanilla.


Rehab represents hope, a joyful return to what makes fragrances so special and pleasurable. It’s for those who are tired and weary of smelling the same accords day in and day out, making use of natural raw materials that bring the wearer back down to the basics in the most ecstatic way possible. Here, the perfumer has created a skillful blend of familiar ingredients, including bergamot, lavender, cedarwood, patchouli and sandalwood, combining them with Hedione HC and musk.
