Concordia discors - or the perfect harmony of opposites
Anyone who likes to deal with concepts of art and aesthetics may have come across the term concordia discors. Basically, it means the perfect harmony of the contradictory, the manifold. As a great fan of English poetry, the poem "The Thames" by the poet Sir Jonathan Denham comes to mind as an example. In the last lines, the essence of the Thames is described, so to speak, as the perfect middle between the forces of opposites:

Though deep yet clear, though gentle yet not dull;
Strong without rage, without o'erflowing full.

In my opinion, Geza Schön also created such a perfect form with Nawab of Oudh Intensivo. Even though oud and rose are part of its genesis, they are so completely unique in this fragrance, and are implemented in a completely different way, that any prejudgements à la "another rose odour" are completely out of touch with reality. Instead, an exciting process awaits the inclined scent friend, which opens up contrasts, to finally bring them to perfection without compromise. Nothing is pompous. Neither the floral nor the oud is in the foreground.

Green is the prelude, characterized by a tart, acidic freshness: very distinctive, very angular, very masculine, this is how the start goes. More and more dabbed with sweetish floral tones, the fragrance soon turns its course towards unisex. Then the next turn follows: The floral notes are distinctly spicier, the floral notes are distinguished, become a bit quieter, but remain present.

In its substantial exclusive base with at most a subtle sweetness for my taste, the fragrance then lingers for many hours. And leaves the wearer behind with an aura of elegance, of power resting in itself. Despite its suppleness, evoked by labdanum and ambergris, it seems a bit distant and not as caressing as one might expect. Finally, the oud with its in this case fine and unobtrusive accent completes the whole thing to an olfactory extremely round, not to say perfect composition.

I don't necessarily see him as a true unisex scent. I think he's at least 70% masculine. But he will probably do his best on a woman who can cope with a green-tangy, quite distinctive opening and who is not afraid of concentrated power. I just want to emphasize it once again: The rose plays only a minor role in this play, like all perfumes. As much as I love powerful rose scents, I welcome the moderation here.

The concentrated substance richness ensures a formidable shelf life. People who are looking for a fragrance that lasts a day are in the right place: Yes, I am one of the species that appreciates such fragrances - after all, I don't change my clothes three times during a long working day (apart from the fact that in my industry - the creative sector - the working days are sometimes longer and more intense). The projection is really pleasantly dimensioned. With a perceptible, but completely unagitated presence. At no time there is screaming or raising the voice. But also at no time hiding under a shirt in shame.

Conclusion: Opposites. Attractive and at the same time again distanced, slight coolness. Edged, but finely honed. Spicy, tart - and yet soft and smooth. All this in harmony. In addition, a fragrance that can feed its wearer for a day. At a price of 240 euros for 50 ml, you can also expect concentrated fragrances. And yet, more has been achieved here than fulfilling expectations: I know some of the Ormonds, some of them I liked, but none of them really inspired me. Even Ormonde Man, who convinced me the most from the series so far, could not completely inspire me. But Nawab of Oudh Intensivo plays in a league of its own for me. A fragrance worthy of the name. And yet, despite all the praise - with its slightly bitter aloofness, I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic candlelight dinner or a movie night on the couch ... we prefer not to open up such contrasts in the first place, as the perfect harmony could be on the verge of collapse.

He who travels well, who travels in the imagination..
I am writing my first comment here after many months because I believe that today I have understood a fragrance as art for the first time.
I lie on the couch by myself. Just me and 2. Nawab of Oudh Intensivo...

Now then:
He who travels well, who travels in the imagination...
He is not hampered by luggage.
Time and place do not restrict him.

The narrow streets of the medina. Ages ago or yesterday. In the maze of narrow streets the little shop. No door. The wooden threshold. Toothless smiles and millions of wrinkles around the sparkling eyes On silver matt trays pastries and sweet delicacies. The smell comes before the taste. Even before I taste the sweet filling, the scent of cardamom, dates, orange water and cinnamon wafts around me
Cobblestone streets, wet from the cold London rain. As he passes the window, in the corner of his eye, the face of the whore. No longer young. Powdered white, On her cheeks rouge - almost circles. The eyes meet briefly. An attempt, though she knows there is nothing to be gained. At the back of the table in the poor room, an amazing bouquet. White flowers, an orchid - and a rose. Almost a circle. Like the rouge on her cheeks
Granada. The light, beguiling beauty of the Nazarites. The blankets of stone as airy as lace. And from the gardens of the Alhambra, dark roses and laurels blowing on the wind. Was there the Sultan's laughter? And there was the laughter of his wife?

Then, when the evening falls and the air is cool, there is the dark beauty. Looking and looking. And only in the imagination is the scent of his skin created. After work is done and ready for the adventure night
The next morning. The narrow streets of the medina. Ages ago or yesterday. The wooden threshold. A beggar boy earns himself a dinar. He sweeps the threshold and in the light swirls on shavings of wood and dust of dried roses.
