A protruding depth of patchouli and smoky cypriol confuses the senses. Instead of a top note, a wide variety of woods appear, foreboding a deep evolution. An exquisitely rich Oud Assam dances in unison with a leathery Madagascar Vanilla, while Ambrarome, Birch, Castoreum, and guaiac wood leave dark sillage imprints on the skin, blending in an endless finale.
Inspired by the notions of Confusion, Passion, and Destruction expressed in Stendhal’s “The Red and The Black”, Silver Oud is a manifestation of the tension between idealism and realism, the contradiction between thinking and feeling, and the power of mimetic desire. Silver Oud is doubling in size compared to the previous flacon and is now permanently offered in 100ml.
