Fragrance powerhouse, Atkinsons, have combined an innocent sweetness with seductive oriental spices in Her Majesty The Oud, part of the scintillating Oud Collection. Like the other scents in the collection, musky oud is at the core of the fragrance but this time, it’s lifted by sweet vanilla, juicy berries and delicate rose. It’s an exciting spin on classically intense oud-based fragrances to give you a regal sense of confidence.
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Whilst oud of Assan is a powerful note at the base of the fragrance and lingers on the skin for a long-lasting, intoxicating fragrance, other lighter notes come into play first. Opening with sweet red berries and apricot-like osmanthus flower, these delicate notes weave into the rich, spicy heart of saffron and iris, where Turkish rose also lies. The powerful base notes include oud, vanilla and leather, working together to create a sweet oriental long-lasting layer of scent that exudes an unrivalled sense of opulence.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
The delicate Turkish rose seems to be the most delicate of the heart notes – but it has a powerful tale behind it. 100 years ago, when British Miss Gertrude Bell met King Faisal I of Arabia, the ladylike nature of Miss Bell was plunged into a world of adventure during her time as a spy. The gloriously feminine floral and fruity notes meet deep sensual leather and oud, reflecting Miss Bell’s deceptive and exciting double life.
