Eau de Parfum, 30 ml
An Ode to OUD and our “roots”. This perfume consists of equal
parts of root extracts and plants growing close to the earth,
such as Sandalwood, Agarwood, Cistus, Labdanum, Oakwood
and heart notes such as Rose Otto, Rose absolute, Geranium,
Rosewood and sweet pink fruity notes.
You can feel the presence of Oud and a finely aged patchouli.
Oakwood lends a rummy, bourbon-like tone with ghostly echoes
of spice, soft-woody and even a hint vanillic, along with that
inevitable trace of tannin. Cistus and labdanum unfold their
decadent, darkly-hued richness and fills us with languor. And
there is sandalwood – the radiant lady-in-waiting to Queen Rose.
The heart notes lift up the root “base” notes and soften them
into a beautiful bouquet. Those gloriously honeyed roses fairly
sing, embellished by rose geranium and rosewood, they serve
to elevate the heftier notes, soften the edges and create an
atmosphere of harmonic “rondeur”. (Ida Meister)
Our roots are for once where we are born into, yet we can feel
home wherever we lay our “heart” on. Combining root and heart
notes in this perfume, is a representation of feeling home within
ourselves, anywhere in the world.
Since I have traveled almost all my life, I had to find my “roots
and realized early on, that they are not necessarily where we are
