Gimme that...sweet strong oude we all love and...many many other resins which are all part of the ritual. Oude comes from a tree usually found in India. Very expensive and one of the most exclusive elements in a perfume, oude is one of the benchmark ingredients that every perfumer needs to learn to tame and use efficiently; and one that every serious perfume wearer needs to learn about and appreciate. To oude I have added vetiver and patchouli, frankincense and moar! I constructed this one to be as heavy and dark and filled with resins as I could stuff into a bottle. Extremely dense and very lovely.
