What does it take in this era of all-oud-everything to make a distinctive, modern, head-turning oud? In the case of Oud Alif, the answer is dark chocolate- a jet-black, sumptuously rich note that blends into the extraordinary real oud extract- smoky, creamy and nuanced. An elegant leather binds everything together, while savory saffron and an almost gourmand patchouli keep the mouthwatering deliciousness that many Shay & Blue fragrances are known for. Creamy and soft, smoky and rich, mysterious and sophisticated- Oud Alif is not just another oud fragrance. This one is a must-try.
