Oud Noir Intense by Fragrance Du Bois is a Amber Spicy fragrance for women and men. Oud Noir Intense was launched in 2013. The nose behind this fragrance is Francois Merle-Baudoin. Top notes are Cardamom and Bergamot; middle notes are Rose and Jasmine; base notes are Agarwood (Oud), Musk, Patchouli, Saffron, Sandalwood, Amber and Vanilla.
Unlike the majority of orientals called intense or noir, Oud Noir Intense actually lives up to its name. Weaving jasmine and roses into a brocade of pure, smoky oud, sandalwood, musk, and spices, the result is an incredibly rich, potent perfume that feels like it should be kept in a ceremonial chamber for anointing the temples and robes of Emirati royals.
The fragrance is complex but so expertly blended that each note feels like an extension of the next: spicy florals, creamy musks, animalic oud oil, smoky-sweet resins, and earthy patchouli all swirled together like cream through a cup of black coffee. A dark and mesmerizing fragrance that represents the very pinnacle of oriental and Arabic perfumery.
