The age-old pairing of rose, oud, and patchouli….you might have heard this tune before, but when it’s done as right as Blessing Silence, it’s as revelatory as listening to a Justin Bieber tune sung by Placido Domingo. Good materials make all the difference. Right out of the gate, you notice the tight balance between four big power players – the deeply tarry, leathery labdanum, the burning oud chip note, the beefy rose, and the pungent patchouli. The powerful notes try at first to duke it out, each hoping to emerge as alpha dog, but in the end, they call a truce. What emerges from the tussle is an incredibly rich, oozing animalic accord of earth, rot, smoke, rose, leather, and resin. It’s an aroma as ancient as perfume itself, a word which, after all, means “through the smoke”. One sniff of this heavenly potion and you will be whisked away to a Sultan’s palace where they are fumigating his robes and rooms with Kyara from the jungles of Vietnam. Fans of the rich, smoking oud wood note in Leather Oud and Oud Palao will find their Jannah, or heaven, in Blessing Silence.
