VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
COLLECTION EXTRAORDINAIRE
PRECIOUS OUD

The Precious Oud spirit

Oud is so precious that it is often worth more than its weight in gold. This tree, which grows in India and South-East Asia, produces a resin with an animalistic, earthy, balsamic and leathery scent. Precious Oud mingles the mysterious aroma of oud with a magnificent bouquet of white flowers.

The intention

I wanted this fragrance to be at one with nature. These white flowers are known for their heady power and make it possible to transpose oud into an unexpected floral realm.
