Behind the scene
Rose Oud 1

 "An invitation to travel, Rose Oud celebrates the mythic essence of the Orient, the Oud Wood. At once, woody, leathery, animal and mysterious, the Oud has a unique power.

To tame it, I combined it with the Rose Damascena.
Carnal and textured, it envelops the Oud in a voluptuous caress.

Two forces that attract each other, one dark, the other one luminous to create an exceptional wake, quintessential to sensuality.
The amber notes of the Labdanum mixed with the spicy accents of the Cumin seal this union and surround it with generous warmth."
Annick Menardo, Perfumer

What is Oud Wood?
Rose Oud 2

Oud is a tropical tree growing in the South-East. It is a fragrant dark resinous wood used in incense and perfume. It is formed in the heartwood of aquilaria trees when they become infected with a type of mould. Prior to infection, the heartwood is odourless, relatively light and pale coloured; however, as the infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin, called oud, in response to the attack, which results in a very dense, dark, resin embedded heartwood. The resin embedded wood is valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance, and thus is used for incense and perfumes.
