We had decided not to make an oudh fragrance, mostly because there are so many already. (Actually there is oudh in 4160 Tuesdays’ perfume The Lion Cupboard, but we chose not to mention it because we didn't want to look like we were jumping on the bandwagon.) Then about the time we were thinking of making our Crimes of Passion range, we were in Dubai, and bought five different oudhs from the soukh at the creek and decided to change our minds. 

It's different from most though - a citrus fruit oudh with guaicwood and patchouli, plus a new wood oil which is being called white oudh by the French supplier; it's from a tree that grows in Indonesian mangrove swamps. We swapped the Dubai oudhs for one from Firmenich, as we needed a reliable source. It has an underlying smooth woody feel, but it's not got the typical intense aroma of decaying woods. There's not much point making an oudh scent that smells like everyone else's though, is there? So a fresh fruity oudh, that's what we have here. Surprise yourself.

"This is one of my favourite autumn fragrances. Yes, it is fruity but it's perfectly balanced with the wood notes and oud so don't fear a sugared oud... I'm not usually one for fruity, let alone oud fragrances but this one is very accessible to men and women... It's a cosy yet sophisticated fragrance that just makes me happy. Perfect for times of mist and mellow fruitfulness." - shushkin
