Byredo’s Oud Immortel bucks the trend and puts a smoky,
earthy oud accord in the background, even though its name has top
billing. It opens with a gourmand vanillic lemon accord, which
contrasts with an earthy, herbaceous base of tobacco leaves, moss,
patchouli and papyrus. This base cuts the sweetness with a mysterious
dryness, making the scent edgier than sweet scents usually are. And,
although it’s not listed, it would make sense if the immortel flower,
both savory and syrupy sweet, were romping around in Oud Immortel.
Oud Immortel’s lemon scent is courtesy of Limoncello, the aromatic citrus-fruity, candied Italian digestif, the major key personality to the oud’s minor key. In the background, the slightly medicinal, camphory vibe from patchouli allows a brighter, happier, fruitier character to speak, accented with warming spices of cardamom.
Smoke and mystery combine with sweetness and warmth to create a paradoxical fragrance both friendly and mysterious. Oud Immortel invites you in with candied lemon and cardamom, and then leaves you entranced with its smoky tobacco leaves, sheer oud accord, and moss.
|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).|
