Precious Oud, a luxurious and so natural fragrance
Founded in 1906, the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique moved to Place Vendôme. The history of the Van Cleef & Arpels brand is before a love story between Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef. Lovers of precious stones, but also very talented, the couple will make the house of Van Cleef & Arpels, a luxury jewelry house. In 1976, the brand presented its first fragrance “First” . “Precious Oud” is part of the Extraordinary Collection of Van Cleef & Arpels and was launched in 2011.
Precious Oud, the best of nature
Oriental-floral composition, ” Precious Oud” is part of the prestigious Extraordinary Collection of the brand, which includes 6 other fragrances. The main purpose of the latter is to put a noble and natural ingredient in the spotlight. Here, it is therefore the oud that delivers its secrets. Van Cleef & Arpels’ fragrance pays homage to both warm and balsamic resin. Here, these are flowers that combine with exotic woods, which gives the whole an ultra enveloping trail.
Precious Oud, the star of the fragrance
“Precious Oud” takes off on the freshness of bergamot, mixed with frankincense and rose berries for a spicy aspect. The heart of “Precious Oud” is full of femininity and luminosity thanks to the association of tuberose and jasmine. Finally, the base of the fragrance is ultra sensual and combines oud, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli and amber. The bottle looks like any of the Extraordinary Collection. Rectangular and refined, it reveals the precious nectar of a brilliant orange color.
