Oud For Love, The Different Company
The Different Company's beauteous Oud for Love - Launched in 2012 by legendary perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour and an entry in the company's Excessive Collection, here we have yet another OUD that is, plain and simple, a must for your collection.
Rest assured, this is NOT your Grandmother's Oud (sorry, we just couldn't resist). Unlike many fragrances that boast the note in the name, Oud for Love does actually contain the precious oil, sourced in Laos by Bertrand Duchaufour. But also because, unusually, this particularly luscious oud sprouts a vampy floral bouquet, tuberose and ylang-ylang that adds curves to the potion. A fresh, agrestic combination of pink pepper and coriander brightens the lash of whisky in the top notes. A soft drizzle of caramel sweetens the vetiver and sandalwood base and adds to the sexy yumminess.
Conceived at the same time as Oud Shamash The Different Company's CEO loved both proposals so much he couldn't pick, so he decided to put out the two. Oud for Love is also unisex. But it might entice women who find most oud offerings too macho to give in. Tuberose and leather: what's not to love?
