Truly Remarkable Ouds
If you’ve never tried an oud fragrance before, now is the perfect time. Direct from London comes this collector 5-piece miniature Atkinsons fragrance collection featuring the brand’s very best oud fragrances for her and him. And they are truly incredible scents.
Oud is one of the most expensive ingredients in modern perfumery (at $5,000 per pound) with an aroma that is typically described as warm, intense, earthy and sensual – a deeply rich scent that can have a slightly sweet facet. Oud is the essential oil extracted from the resinous heartwood of the agar tree that has been infected by a specific fungus. Only two percent of agar trees produce this ultra-fragrant resin that perfumers adore.
A long-time favourite scent in the Middle East, today’s oud scents are crafted with a very light hand making them fresher, lighter and more nuanced. Atkinsons is famous for pairing oud with Earl Grey Tea notes which adds a freshness. These five oud scents are a must-try for any fragrance enthusiast.
