The Exotic Scent Combo We Can't Get Enough Of
The scent equivalent of wearing a leather jacket over a girly dress, rose mixed with the traditionally Middle Eastern oud note is a balance of opposites: The softness of the rose contrasts gorgeously with the smoky darkness of the oud. Blended together in these over-the-top-luxurious fragrances—oud is a precious ingredient, and the perfumers here have chosen rare rose accords to complement it—the result is sensuous, heady, feminine and so cool. Each of the scents lingers on skin and develops, subtly, as the hours pass, and the combinations smell different on everyone. The stunning bottles only add to the air of craftsmanship and Old World care.
