Inspiration: LOVE, don’t be shy, receives a limited-edition interpretation for 2019 with Oud, the first in a series of "Special Blends" highlighting the incredibly rich and diverse facets of oud oil.
Fragrance story: Called the "Wood of Gods", oud is formed in the truns of Agar trees where black resin produces a captivating fragrant oil. Like a fine liquor, each year this Agar tree produces a vintage that is then blended to perfection by Kilian Hennessy.
LOVE, don’t be shy ROSE & OUD celebrates the floral facet of the original fragrance with the warm, beautiful and iconic Bulgarian Rose. It also unveils a new facet through an intoxicating Oud from Southern Asia. Two oils, so celebrated in perfumery for centuries, make the core marshmallow delicacy into a deeper dare to love like its home.
Key notes: Rose, Marshmallow, Oud
Olfactive family: Narcotics - From rose to tuberose, from orange blossom to gardenia… Kilian flowers are composed like a narcotic dependence.
Perfumer: Calice Becker.
