OUD AND BERGAMOT
I was walking through Duty-Free and in front of me was a huge Jo Malone display with all the perfumes for you to sample. So I went over and tried every single one; like you do! I wasn’t alone, there were a few other ladies looking to finding their perfect scent too. I found 3 that I loved. After spraying every spare part of my arms, I decided to walk around and to let them settle on my skin so I could see which scent I liked most. It didn’t take me that long to decide. I already have a strong love for anything with Bergamont in, so I went back and bought Oud and Bergamot from the cologne intense range.
It has top notes of Bergamot with base notes of Cedarwood and Oud Wood. I love the combination of citrus and wood; I’m always drawn to more fruity and woody scents.
I think this is a lovely fragrance for all seasons and for both day or night. It’s so unique and like no other perfume I own. It makes me feel amazing when I wear it as it so luxurious and special, and a little mysterious.
You only need the lightest of sprays as a little goes a long way. Some reviews I’ve read say the longevity is poor, but I personally find it lasts all day on me and is definitely one I will be repurchasing. I just hope I don’t run out too soon! I’m trying not to wear it every day, but as I love it so much it’s so hard to resist.
The website describes this scent as:
‘Precious oud, reframed. The mysterious, smoky character of this revered wood, central to Middle Eastern fragrance traditions, radiates with the clarity of crisp bergamot and an orange granite accord. Hypnotic. Alluring.’
I’d love to try the dry oil, and the candle would be a perfect addition to the home. So they are on my wish list.
