Acqua di Parma has long been a symbol of excellence and Italian craftsmanship and perfectly embodies the Mediterranean lifestyle. Adding to their Signatures of the Sun Collection, the Maison has announced the release of Oud & Spice, a rich, woody perfume. At it’s heart is the most highly-prized variety of agarwood oil (oud), derived from the resin of the Aquilaria tree, native to Laos. In contrast to more common variations, this particular oud is notable for its round, seductive quality.
This complex scent opens with bright notes of citrus, namely bergamot, combined with rose and raspberry. Its heart is warmer and spicier, blending cloves and cinnamon with pink pepper. Finally, at its base, are woody scents of patchouli and sandalwood. The scents journey mirrors the depth and versatility of oud, highlighting its uniqueness and elements of surprise.
The sophistication of the scent is complemented perfectly by the stylish, minimalist packaging. Set in the trademark cylindrical black box with the iconic embossed gold logo, the Art Deco bottle is black with gold accenting.
Oud & Spice will be available in 20ml, 100ml and 180ml and is currently available as a worldwide exclusive at Harrods priced at £199 for 100ml and £246 for 180ml. harrods.com
