A brief scent note:

  • Oud Royal, from Giorgio Armani’s Privé collection, showcases oud wood, considered a “second skin” in the Middle East.
  • Mugler’s Woodissime combines agarwood, cedar, saffron and osmanthus for a scent that’s both soft and spicy. 
  • Tom Ford’s Vert des Bois, from his private-blend line, is the perfect combo of greenery and expressive wood base.
  • Francis Kurkdjian brings his years of experience to Grand Soir, mixing cistus labdanum, benzoin and tonka bean.
