THE HOUSE OF OUD – Empathy

£190.00

Empathy is an olfactory description of a fleeting instant that words simply cannot encapsulate. It tells the tale of what happens when two souls meet and instantly recognise each other. It’s like when you catch your breath: your eyes lock together. The silence that speaks reigns supreme, overcoming mere physical attraction to become energy. The result is a new awareness, as delicate and profound as the composition. The sweet notes of pear blossom in the head, inflamed by an infusion of raspberry, open up to a heart whose fruity hints of tobacco leaf win you over. What makes the woody, mossy finale even more refined is an elusive touch of scorched wood.

Head Notes: Pear blossom, raspberry flowers, Indian Davana;

Heart Notes: Fruity tobacco, Infusion of raspberry;

Base Notes: Scorched wood, Transparent mosses, Benzoin, Silver fir, Irian Oud.

Description

THE HOUSE OF OUD is the name of a brand, the signature of a style, but even before that it is the story of a friendship between an Italian Master Perfumier and a producer of Jakarta oud, two people who share a passion for art, perfumes and travel, together with a sense of beauty and their love of study. Their focus on aesthetic, cultural and olfactory research has made their path and their work into an opportunity to discover the finest raw materials und unprecedented, increasingly surprising accords. THE HOUSE OF OUD was established to channel the ideas and inspirations the two collect from all over the world into a single ‘house’. Theirs is a rather special house: it has no walls or borders, but is open to opportunities and to visits, furnished with knowledge, experience and the age-old art of perfumery. It is no coincidence that, in addition to the ingredient that is always part of the brand’s compositions, OUD is also an acronym that encapsulates all the two founders’ spirit of research, standing for ‘Our Unique Devotion’.
