Oud fragrances make the best gifts, so there’s no better time than now to grab that one-of-a-kind gift for Eid. Perhaps you want to surprise that special someone or treat yourself (we don’t blame you), but whichever you decide, here are the ouds that smell out of this world…
GUERLAIN Santal Royal
Inspired by the mystery and grandeur of the East, Guerlain have created a powerful fragrance centred around its sandalwood base note. This woody oriental fragrance combines bright and refreshing jasmine in the top notes with bold and dark leather in the base to create a mystical and exotic summer scent. One spray of GUERLAIN Santal Royal lasts for hours, slowly revealing new intricate layers that will keep people captivated and wanting more.
VERSACE OUD ORIENTAL FOR HER
If warm and spicy is more your vibe, try Versace Oud Oriental this Eid. It’s heady and sensual, with notes of saffron, leathery oud accord, sandalwood and powdery violet – and it’s the one you’ll choose for special occasions. We’re BIG fans, especially for those black-tie events in the calendar.
HUGO BOSS Boss Bottled Oud Aromatic
Sophistication in a bottle, Boss Bottled Oud Aromatic manages to perfectly balance light citrus top notes of orange blossom with luxurious woody oud base notes. What really makes this fragrance so addictive is the heart note of Myrhh which provides a comforting warmth to the middle of the scent. This versatile oud fragrance is perfect for any event, putting you centre stage no matter the occasion.
VERSACE OUD NOIR FOR HIM
Zesty notes + oud = energetic ouds. And Oud Noir is right up there on our gifting list for Eid. With an electric, tangy blend of bitter orange, neroli, black pepper and oud wood, it’s sensual and warm. You’ll smell the spicy wafts of cardamom and saffron, too, which you’ll never tire of.
