The result of a quest to create the perfect oud reconstruction. There are many premixed ouds available on the market for perfumers to use, but I tend to abstain from using them. I always want to know what I’m cooking with. One of the problems of working with pre-blended ingredients is that you don’t really know what you’re getting inside the blend. And you cannot adjust any facets you don’t like. During development, I noticed an interesting word-play: “no-oud” could also be read as “nude”. After only a few modifications, our NOOUD was complete. It’s a single note dark, smokey oud, perfect for layering or wearing as a seductive stand-alone.
