Creed Royal-Oud (2011) {New Perfume}

royal-oud_creed.jpgEarlier this year, Creed launched their own oud opus called Royal-Oud. It has become a must to release an oud fragrance these days. Faithful to their usual privileged sources of inspiration, Creed are moreover proposing a cross-cultural oud perfume which reflects the luxury of both Parisian and Persian palaces.

"Wood, leather marble and gold,” elements of a royal Persian palace, inspire Olivier CREED, sixth-generation master perfumer of France, an architect of fragrance, to create new Royal-Oud for men and women.  Rare, hypnotic, sumptuous oud, an ingredient coaxed from Agarwood trees of India –- and more costly per ounce than palladium –- lends its power to this blend."...

  • Top Notes: A crown of Calabrian lemon, pink berry and Sicilian bergamot.

As is usual for the house as well, they have offered the new fragrance to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and to members of six U.S. presidential families.
