From the Orient, oud conveys mystery and sensuality. From Laos, its land of origin, it draws purity and refinement. This extrait de parfum interpretation is built on a dream of oud—a supremely elegant, precious and rare natural ingredient. It has wrapped itself in a musk and vanilla accord that releases a harmony of spicy rich aromas. An olfactory treasure born of sand, wind and gold.
What We Think
The extrait version proves that Mr. Kurkdjian knows how to take the wonderful EDP version of the Oud to a deeper, darker and more sensual territory. More intense resins are balanced with the savory saffron note and a feathery-soft vanilla accord that adds to the plushness. Not overly sweet or cloying, Oud Extrait continues to evolove over time with great sillage and longevity. A fantastic oud reference.
