Good artists create works that are pleasant. Great artists create works that are rewarding. For Musk Oud, the fifth and final scent in the ‘Arabian Nights' collection, Kilian Hennessy joined forces with master perfumer Alberto Morillas, (creator of the much-praised Yves Saint Laurent M7), to devise an oud fragrance worthy of the challenge and complexity of its enigmatic, animalic central ingredient. The result is Musk Oud, an exotic oud fragrance that is simultaneously powerful yet elegant, complicated yet comfortable, edgy yet compellingly wearable.
Musk Oud opens with a fresh accord of citrus, cardamom and coriander, a bright burst of spice that warms the palette and eases into the complexities yet to come. It is followed with an explosion of luscious rose, enhanced with rum extract to achieve a liquorish sweetness. All the while, the star ingredient-- a sumptuous oud accord complimented by smoky incense and earthy patchouli-- develops step by step alongside a proprietary blend of captive Firmenich musks to bring the composition to a beautifully balanced apex. The combination is a magical trifecta: A dramatic, velvety, altogether sensual fragrance whose animalic power continues to unfold on the skin, leaving a diffusive, sexy allure that lingers all day.
