To create the new fragrance in the Absolus d’Orient collection, Guerlain Perfumer Thierry Wasser drew his inspiration from the unique and precious Oud wood: Oud Essentiel. The fragrance is a majestic celebration of this rare ingredient which reveals its true strength and sensuality.
Both mellow and intense, this woody leather fragrance blends the mysterious notes of leather and Frankincense and the sweet notes of Bulgarian Rose in a subtle alchemy. A unique olfactory encounter between East and West.
With its sumptuous facets of opulent wood and leather, Oud Essentiel is an homage to the legendary oud wood, a rare, refined raw material with a hint of spice that evokes the red gold of the caravanserai.
Showcased in a refined green shade, the Oud Essentiel bottle contrasts elegantly with its gold details, including cap, ribbon trim and label featuring the House’s heritage arabesque design.
