Description

In the top notes, Oud & Bergamot takes flight, with a sparkling opening of bergamot, lemon and orange, paired with lightly floral notes. The fragrance goes on to reveal refined woody waves of cedar that announce the fragrance’s key note: oud wood, exhaling its lightly caramelized, smoky tonalities. Dry and smoky rather than truly ambry, the fragrance evolves towards a leather-chypre note. Perfumer: Christine Nagel

The sweet, woody sensuality of the Middle East

History

A sweet and complex woody fragrance, Oud & Bergamot is part of Jo Malone’s Cologne Intense collection. This series of perfumes was inspired by secular rituals in the Middle East. The collection is the fruit of a collaboration between perfumer Christine Nagel and Jo Malone’s design studio aiming to create bold fragrances that reinterpret popular perfumery ingredients. Each of the compositions has been designed in such a way that it can be worn alone or layered with another fragrance from the collection for an infinitely modifiable “bespoke” effect. Oud & Bergamote was born of the marriage between two thoroughbred ingredients – oud and bergamote – united here in a modern interpretation in which bergamot refines oud’s smoky facets with a sparkling hint of freshness. The fragrance can be layered with Rose Water & Vanilla, Amber & Patchouli or Iris & White Musk from the same collection. For more info: www.jomalone.com

    I like how bergamot is used to tame the oud. The taming of the oud is what is so interesting. I agree these are two very noble ingredients. Intense sounds so intense here.
