Beautystat , I talked about the Oud trend in fragrance and that it will continue to grow this year. One of new ones is now here, Bond No. 9 New York Oud. This is the 3rd in their Oud collection after Bond No 9 Oud also called Signature and Harrods.In my Spring trend guide for
This Oud is a different than many. Oud itself is resinous wood that gives off a scent of incense and spice . New York Oud has a touch of the incense, but a small amount , it's more sweet , and has an overall warmth on the skin. Instead there is plum , rose , orange zest, teakwood, vetiver, patchouli and honey. Most prominent here are the rose and honey notes making a scent that will fragrance the winter days still ahead. Think of it as a cozy sweater wrapping itself around you .
I think of it as an Oud for those who aren't generally fans , like myself. Pure Ouds don't appeal/work for me, but I am loving New York Oud, and that was surprise. Bond No 9 says it's a modernized Oud and it is.
It is also a perfume with 30 % Oud concentration, instead of the usual 20% in most perfumes. What this means is that you are getting a fragrance that will last long, all through the day. It also has great sillage. Nothing overpowering, but it's there.
New York Oud is available now for $ 310.00 for 100ml at http://www.bondno9.com/ and Saks locations.
