Plenty of fragrances are powerful or complex, but what makes a scent truly regal? In the case of Oud Monarch, the answer is power and complexity in the service of pure, indulgent, delightful comfort. Just as Areej Le Dore’s Oud Luwak gave us the why-didn’t-we-think-of-that savory voluptuousness of oud and coffee, so too does Oud Monarch delve deep into gourmand territory, delivering a richly mouthwatering cocoa-infused oud scent as luxuriously smooth as the finest royal vestments. While the oud on display is as precious and potent as in any scent we carry (as with all Bortnikoff ouds, it features frequent collaborator Russian Adam’s treasured and rare “Feel Oud”), the introduction of a rich cacao note does a miraculous thing, smoothing the animalic roar of the oud into a smooth and delicious purr that still resonates with power. It’s so blissfully intense that it truly takes a moment for your nose to adjust, at which point you can appreciate the masterful attention to detail behind the potency- smooth, sweet florals, spiced tobacco and resin- all perfectly pitched to keep every sniff unique and intriguing. Oud lovers, chocolate fanatics, come together: here is a fragrance fit for a Monarch.
