Perennially popular, oud can be a beautiful, enveloping and somewhat polarising fragrance ingredient. But whether you’re an existing oud lover or just becoming acquainted with it, Oud Eclat, the latest scent from Miller Harris is guaranteed to turn the tables on what you would normally expect from this mesmerising ingredient.
Oud Eclat formulates oud within a shimmering structure of sugar and musks that will reset people’s perceptions of what this iconic scent ingredient is capable of. While oud usually takes centre stage in most perfumes, enveloping the wearer in a dark cloak of leathery earthy notes and spices, here it takes a more subtle role. In Oud Eclat, the oud actually forms part of the top notes (what you smell when you first apply the perfume) blended with cashmere wood, which then warms up to notes of sugar, tagete, balsam and nutmeg for a much more beguiling bouquet. This is underscored by a rich base of moss and musks that deliver a memorable, mellow dry down. The result is a highly complex bouquet that is unisex and extremely wearable – whatever your perfume preference.
Its inspiration was taken from the movement of lead and glass as they both entwine in the creation of crystal to fuse together the beauty of light and dark. Perfumer Emilie Bouge looked to this vibrant gem to get an idea of the sort of contrasts this scent would capture in fragrance form. Crystals are of course composed of light and shadows – and are formed when lead is poured into the glass and the balance is just right. This balance is what Oud Eclat pays tribute to. This is where the shimmering, sugary accord comes into play – offering brightness to offset the oud’s rich deepness, for a mesmerising and truly unique fragrance experience. Dazzling enough for the evening yet wearable enough for during the day. And while traditional ouds can sometimes be polarising, this boasts an appeal that is very much universal.
