“Ideal Oud” is the perfumer’s take onto two opposite raw materials, the rose and oud wood: fragility and power in one hand, light and darkness, in the other hand. To get control over the powerful oud wood, Alberto Morillas has combined it with a duet of roses, Bulgarian and Centifolia. The result? A subtle oud wood turned into a dark and mysterious flower, spiced up with fiery rose pepper and saffron. One can feel the dominating heady leather-wood scent, enhanced by papyrus wood and labdanum. “Ideal Oud” is as much for women as for men. Nothing too overwhelming or too brutal. But rather, a perfume as soft as silk satin on your skin.
