Good artists create works that are pleasant. Great artists create works
that are rewarding. For Musk Oud, the fifth and final scent in the
‘Arabian Nights’ collection, Kilian Hennessy joined forces with master
perfumer Alberto Morillas, (creator of the much-praised Yves Saint
Laurent M7), to devise an oud fragrance worthy of the challenge and
complexity of its enigmatic, animalic central ingredient. The result is
Musk Oud, an exotic oud fragrance that is simultaneously powerful yet
elegant, complicated yet comfortable, edgy yet compellingly wearable.
Musk Oud opens with a fresh accord of citrus, cardamom and coriander, a bright burst of spice that warms the palette and eases into the complexities yet to come. It is followed with an explosion of luscious rose, enhanced with rum extract to achieve a liquorish sweetness. All the while, the star ingredient-- a sumptuous oud accord complimented by smoky incense and earthy patchouli-- develops step by step alongside a proprietary blend of captive Firmenich musks to bring the composition to a beautifully balanced apex. The combination is a magical trifecta: A dramatic, velvety, altogether sensual fragrance whose animalic power continues to unfold on the skin, leaving a diffusive, sexy allure that lingers all day.
|How to Use||A perfume can be a delicious whisper that reminds people "I'm here" Make sure your signature scent is saying what you want it to. Apply the fragrance to any of your pulse points, where the warmth of your body helps project the scent more: behind your knees, the inside of your wrists and elbows, at the base of your throat, and behind your ears or diffuse a 'cloud' of perfume in the air and walk through, this will give you an even, all-over scent. Your hair is an excellent perfume carrier (however, never spray directly onto the hair).|
