Silver Oud

 

Opus XIII

Silver Oud

A protruding depth of Patchouli and smoky Cypriol confuses the senses. Instead of a top note, a wide variety of woods appear, foreboding a deep evolution. An exquisitely rich Oud Assam dances in unison with a leathery Madagascar Vanilla, while Ambrarome, Birch, Castoreum and Guaiac Wood leave dark sillage imprints on the skin, blending in an endless finale.

Inspired by the notions of Confusion, Passion and Destruction expressed in Stendhal’s “The Red and The Black”, Silver Oud is a manifestation of the tension between idealism and realism, the contradiction between thinking and feeling, and the power of mimetic desire. Silver Oud is doubling in size compared to the previous flacon and now permanently offered in 100ml. The other historic Opuses will remain available for sale through the Amouage Archive, on Amouage.com and selected Amouage boutiques (while supplies last); a different framework that will leave ample space for The Library Collection to grow anew, attuned to a cohesive curatorial approach.

Zarokian

An ISIPCA alumnus, Cécile Zarokian trod her own path by becoming at 27 the youngest independent woman perfumer of our age. Her humility, curiosity and panartistic vision of her craft results in fragrances often a certain grandiloquence and Armenian homeliness.
