Oud by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is a Amber Woody fragrance for women and men. Oud was launched in 2012. The nose behind this fragrance is Francis Kurkdjian
The famous perfumer Francis Kurkdjian launches a new fragrance within his perfume collection Maison Francis Kurkdjian in early May 2012. The fragrance is simply named Oud, focusing on this exquisite accord. This oriental scented material that had been neglected for decades has returned in a big way in recent years and most of the niche perfumery houses dedicated at least one edition to it.
The aroma is rich and luxurious, representing a modern interpretation of the ancient Arabian perfumes. Francis Kurkdjian uses oud from Laos, where it is the purest and the most expensive. Oud is enriched with woody and spicy notes of cedar, patchouli and saffron.
This is an oud even the most ouded-out could curl up with. Sweetly leathery and animalic, with the touch of honey real oud gives off – and there is real Laotian oud in the blend. With its citrus and pepper facets, elemi resin adds sparkle to the top notes. Saffron brings out the leather effects of oud, set into the tenderest woods: the leathery, almost jam-sweet Atlas cedar, and a lavish, un-musty patchouli..Francis Kurkdjian says he composed his Oud while dreaming of a marble and gold palace in the desert sands fit for “the prince of raw materials”. He’s done more than that: he’s turned oud into a flawlessly elegant classic of the perfumer’s palette.
