What would white oudh smell like? Niche Swedish fragrance brand, Agonist has sought to teach us, with its stunning, tenth fragrance, crafted to celebrate its tenth year. White Oud ‘is the fruit of our ambition to challenge traditional uses of raw materials with a singular artistic Nordic vision’, explain creators Christine and Niclas Lydeen.
White Oud does just that, capturing the deep complexity of oud based fragrances, energised and lightened with mysterious, cool notes, which settle into a sweet powdery base, reminiscent of dusky Scandinavian days.
Notes include, ylang ylang flowers, tonka beans, patchouli, white musk and cypriol.
Agonist White Oud £125 for 50ml eau de parfum
