perfect fruity oud
This is one gorgeous creation that demonstrates what an unparalleled master of Modern Oriental perfumery Stephane Humbert Lucas is. Full of warmth, sophistication and masculine radiance, SHL combines a central note of Cambodian Oud in this one with notes of Yuzu, blackcurrant, mint, spices, and balsamic notes. The results are utterly winning and reflect an opulent Middle Eastern opulence transposed with modern elegant masculinity. Enormous sillage and projection, please use the spray button with caution. Not your typical Oud Rose combination which predominates the market, this is a dry, almost shimmering translucent sweet Oud that is not seen much these days in perfumery. Simply magnificent!
