An Oriental - Woody fragrance by Bertrand Duchaufour
A spiritual journey to the heart of the Far East
Powerful, dark, mysterious… Oud Shamash is an ode to eternity, a bright alchemy of the Oud absolute which is glorified by its spicy and Amber notes.
Shamash, God of the Sun that was celebrated by Babylonians, represented the supreme judge because of its position in the sky that allowed him to observe humanity. Is it from this God that the perfumer’s inspiration for eternity came from? Oud Shamash takes off with some spicy notes of pink pepper, saffron and cinnamon, then it explores the deepest and most mysterious resinous facet of the absolute of Oud before being sublimated by the Patchouli.
Oud is one of the richest elements nature ever produced, resulting from a fortunate encounter between a mushroom and a rare wood essence: it is extracted from a precious and extremely rare resin (Agarwood) which comes from a not very widespread type of tree, the Aquilaria. For an optimum quality, the tree must be at least 15 years old before it can be distilled and before its essence can be collected drop by drop.
Vibrant, luminous and mysterious
