Not all oud is created equal. Some is cut with screechy, headache inducing synthetics, while others are harvested unethically, contributing to a potential future where this precious resource will be lost to the ravages of human consumption. But with Incense Oud, Mme. Patricia de Nicolaï has yet again delivered an exquisite oud fragrance of the highest order, rich with the deep, resinous and evocative aroma of sustainably harvested Cambodian agarwood, here paired against a divinely ethereal incense from the Kingdom of Oman, resulting in a compelling scent with powerful oud presence but a uniquely artistic complexity.
From the start, Incense Oud radiates individuality with a bright, fresh, herbaceous opening of artemisia and coriander, soon revealing a sweet liquor note paired with a woodsy, intricate chord of dark oud, stout cedarwood and earthy patchouli. A resinous, animalic base including castoreum and leather lends dimensionality to the incense, imbuing the sensual into the spiritual. Tenacious, exotic, unique and long lasting, Incense Oud is another one of a kind creation from Parfums de Nicolaï- a treasure that, thanks to their admirable sourcing practices, can be enjoyed by generations to come.
