An exciting addition to Atkinsons’ Oud Collection, Atkinsons His Majesty The Oud Eau de Parfum is bursting with oriental fragrance combinations that delight the senses and create a smoky yet sweet scent fit for a king. The sumptuous oud is well-balanced with rich spices and earthy notes, while a refreshingly light lapsang tea accord adds charisma to the fragrance. I love the smokiness combined with the oud – and I must admit I was blown away by its staying power.
This Fragrance Smells Like…
There is an enticing sweet smokiness when you first smell His Majesty The Oud; it has a familiar tone, which is all thanks to lapsang souchong tea. The smoked tea laces the smoky, spicy heart notes of cloves and cade oil to give a heady warmth to the fragrance. Finally, the bold musky base of oud, incense and leather create a burning heat that’s balanced by an underlying smoky sweetness that stops any one note from being overpowering.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Renowned for his bold elegance and leadership, King Faisal of Arabia inspired this sophisticated and lively fragrance. The rich lather base reflects a horse’s saddle, recalling the way the King raced across deserts on thrilling adventures. The blazing deserts are honoured in the oud and incense notes, with the refined lapsang souchong tea adding the final royal flair.
You Will Love This If…
If you’re a fan of sensual oud or have always wanted to explore this rich note, you’ll love the captivating His Majesty The Oud. The smokiness dances with earthy tones to create a fragrance like no other.

Is His Majesty The Oud Unisex?
His Majesty The Oud by Atkinsons is full of traditionally masculine notes but, here at Escentual, we believe that anyone can enjoy wearing any fragrance. The deep smokiness, earthy heart and leathery base do create a typically masculine tone but any oud lover will love the innovation within the fragrance.
What’s The Longevity Like?
Incredibly long-lasting, His Majesty The Oud will stay fragrant for over 10 hours – and a little goes a long way too.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
The smooth metallic gold bottle feels cool and heavy in your hands. The back of the bottle is multifaceted for an easy and comfortable grip, while the shiny bottle and the black on the front is reminiscent of a royal wax seal. Finally, the secure topper is embossed with the Atkinsons crest for that final touch of opulence.
