Fragrance description Creed Royal Oud
Royal Oud is a rich Oriental fragrance for men and women from the workshop of a unique, dynastic and privately owned Parisian niche perfume brand. As well as an exceptional tradition passed down from father to son since 1760 and a celebrated history (more than 250 years of creating exceptional fragrances for royal families and other exacting customers with refined tastes), the Creed brand can also boast the use of classic techniques when processing the rare materials selected for the production of its unrivalled perfumes. The Creed Royal Oud Eau de Parfum offers a touch of the wonder of Persian and Parisian palace life.
Creed Oud is the work of Olivier Creed, a leading perfumer from the sixth generation of the Creed dynasty. He has taken his inspiration for the fragrance from the basic elements used in a royal Persian palace – wood, leather, marble and gold. As the name suggests, the Royal Oud Eau de Parfum offers a regally luxurious fragrance based around the central note of oud wood, a rare wood from the Aquilaria tree and a wonderful raw material with an unmistakable aroma which is also known as eagle wood or agarwood.
The aromatic composition of Creed Royal Oud opens in the head with notes of Calabrian lemon, pink pepper and Sicilian bergamot. The heart contains cedar, galbanum and angelica, while the base consists of tones of musk, sandalwood and, of course, oud wood. The overall aroma wonderfully combines dominant woody aspects with musk, citrus and powdery attributes and is stylish, warm and regally exceptional. The Royal Oud Eau de Parfum represents a wonderful kaleidoscope of aromas, in which the strength provided by the oud note is masterfully incorporated into a perfectly balanced composition.
The Creed Royal Oud Eau de Parfum will be especially appreciated by men and women who like Oriental fragrances conceived in a modern way with a distinctive aspect of rare woods and agarwood in the main role. It will appeal to those who love excellent, masterfully composed perfumes and, of course, to everybody who appreciates quality and luxury to a truly extraordinary extent. Royal Oud is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the entire year, but it stands out best in the cooler months. It provides its wearer with a luxurious touch of the atmosphere of royal palaces and will never fail to secure the admiration of those around him or her.
The perfumes from the Creed brand are attractive not only thanks to their enchanting fragrances, but also their exceptional and elegantly beautiful packaging. As is the case with many Creed perfumes, the flacon for Royal Oud carries the word “millesime”, which is a hallmark of quality. It indicates that the very best ingredients from the given year were used in the production of the perfume. The packaging includes a sophisticatedly beautiful light box with golden elements.
