    Harrods Swarovski Crystal Oud Edition by Bond No. 9

    Harrod's Limited Edition Oud (Swarvski Oud) by Bond No. 9.
    This blend depicting an oud centric fragrance by Bond No. 9 is perhaps the best - in my opinion one of the best - oud perfumes made. Why the best? A tired old refrain from one of my art school professor's was "You know it's a good design if you roll it down a hill and nothing falls off". Nothing falls off of Bond's Harrod's Ltd. Edition Oud. The opening is gruff with pepper, smokey cumin and resinous myrrh. The oud is warm and deeply medicinal while the base smoothes out with a soft amber warmth all landing on a vetiver grassy cool earth base. The fragrance just works very all around. It is rough hewn but warm and soft. It is medicinal and incensey while maintaining a green grounded to the earth feel. This is the oud fragrance that got me sold on oud as a central note for a fragrance. Very well done. rating 5 / 5.
