The opulence of a Persian palace as interpreted by The House of Creed — that’s the most fitting description of Royal Oud. Without a doubt, this woody and oriental scent, which was created by Sixth Generation Master Perfumer Olivier Creed in 2011, has all the characteristics of a gilded royal home with the modern craftsmanship of a Creed fragrance. Imagine rich wood furnishings, with touches of leather and gold and endless marble, in a fragrance format — as luxurious and fashionable as it sounds.
The most prominent note in Royal Oud is the oud itself which adds woody depth and mystery. Originating from the Southeast Asian agar tree, oud is the dark, scented resin from this extraordinarily rare wood. Oud’s rarity lends to the expense the scent’s coveted raw materials, and is prized by both the men and women who wear it. Royal Oud kicks off with a burst of lemon, pinkberry and bergamot. This freshness gives way to cedar, galbanum and angelica roots. Joining the oud within the base is sandalwood and Tonkin musk. The combination results in a stylish and warm fragrance with woody, rich and spicy nuances. In other words: luxury in a bottle.
