    Les Nombres d'Or : Oudh Osmanthus / Oud by Mona di Orio

    This ambary fragrance introduces around a new version of the infamous theme of aoud and this is, as underlined, a well blended and not overwhelming and starring kind of aoud. The resin is part of a complex blend starting with a citrusy-floral blast and ending in a woody and musky kind of fragrance with a dry down featured of mysterious amber. The key elements are an initial neroli accord joined with the floral elements of dreamy elemy and womanly osmanthus, than a mysterious blend of aoud and amber that is dusty, woodsy and mossy. A touch of patchouli and spices, together with fruits and heavy florals imprints autority and a vintage, pungent, heavy kind of character. The fragrance at this level introduces a touch of earth and medicinal dust remaining anyway a western kind of seductive and womanly ambery and woody scent.
