Musk Aoud Parfum
the unexpected oud
A uniquely exotic Chypré accord, this Musk Aoud candle marries the dry, woody warmth of the Chypré-style with the traditionally Middle Eastern styling of Aoud. Earthy notes of Patchouli and Oakmoss mingle with Aoud and Sandal Woods to create a natural depth which takes the fragrance to exotic realms. Running through the scent is the animalic sensuality of Musk and leathery Labdanum, which make this Oud and Patchouli candle one that is utterly compulsive.

“An interpretation of the traditional Oriental style in which Aoud is often presented is transformed into an utterly contemporary Chyprè accord. This composition is formed around a central duet of Musk and Aoud, where a delicate note of Rose de Mai is made dry and natural by an abundance of woods and mosses. A rich and sensual base of Tonka Bean and Ambrette fused with leather-like Labdanum heightens the aphrodisiacal nature of one of perfumery’s most legendary materials – Musk. Totally unexpected and yet utterly compulsive, Musk Aoud pays homage to tradition whilst creating its own distinct path forward.” – ROJA DOVE.
