    Default New Fragrance: Van Cleef & Arpels Precious Oud

    From nstperfume.com:

    Van Cleef & Arpels has launched Precious Oud, a new addition to 2009′s Collection Extraordinaire. Precious Oud is a tribute to the “legendary ingredient, oud wood”, and was developed by perfumer Amandine Marie.

    The notes include bergamot, pink pepper, incense, jasmine, tuberose, patchouli, oud, sandalwood, vetiver and ambergris.

    Van Cleef & Arpels Precious Oud is available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

    I do. But I am getting a little tired of "the same old thing" being done by every company . Although I am interested in how the addition of jasmine and tuberose will play out in this one.

    If oud is the in thing right now then it seems like there's more to come in the future.

    Thank you, JC.

    Yes, oud is a very trendy note now.

    If you're really into ouds - does that make you an Oudist?

    Boom, boom!

    I hope it's good but I am getting tired of the oud bandwagon.
    It does sound like an interesting combo of notes although the vetiver is a worry...

    Oh, and I should also say thanks for the info yet again p.

    The only thing precious about this release will be the waste of my precious time giving it a sniff. But if Amadine Marie personally assisted me, maybe I wouldn't mind so much...

    -1 For yet another oud.

    -2 For pink pepper.

    +3 For pairing oud with florals other than rose.

    So, I'll give it a try, down the road. I'll try not to be too judgmental, but I'm not expecting wonders.

    Exactly. I'm pretty excited for this one. I also hope the ambergris note in the base is noticeable. A could go for a balsamic floral oud.
