Atkinsons have launched a duo of oud fragrances from the Oud Collection whimsically entitled Oud Save the Queen and Oud Save the King to celebrate "200 years of perfume snobbery,"...
"The most precious secret of the orient revealed . . . with an irresistibly English Twist."
Oud Save the King was composed by perfumer Amandine Clerc-Marie of Firmenich. It is described as a "Dandy concoction of oriental exoticism and proper British posh,"
The eau de parfum opens on an Earl Grey bergamot accord, which is common to both perfumes. It is followed by iris absolute, an iris à la boutonnière, and a leather suede accord. The base features sandalwood and an oud accord.
Oud Save the Queen is signed by perfumer Francis Deleamont of Firmenich. "The beguiling aura of oud is femininely wreathed in exquisite petals of jasmine and orange blossom," and "The betwitching fragrance of forbidden love."
The eau de parfum unfolds with top notes of an Earl Grey bergamot accord and clove followed by an Orange Blossom and Jasmine Petal accord. In the base, there tonka beans and a guaiac wood and oud accord.
