Musk Oud is a perfume built on the contrast between a liquorish overdosed rose – Bulgarian rose, geranium from India and davana from China – and an animalic oudh accord of great sensuality – cypriol, muscone, civettone – made comfortable thanks to captive musks from Firmenich- muscenone delta, muscenone dextro.

In the opening, the citrus notes – lemon and mandarin – bring a ray of light warmed by spices­ – cardamom and coriander. A trace cypress brings an unexpected departure to this unusual vibrato.

The heart is an explosion of roses made syrupy and intoxicating, thanks to the rum extract, C02.

The dry down has been built to allow the almost outrageous force of the oudh accord to grow and take full power. A trace of frankincense and Indonesian patchouli bring a smokey facet to the composition saturated with dry woods.

For the last scent of the Arabian Nights collection, Killian wanted to work with Alberto Morillas. First, because he has been working with the oudh accord for a long time (he is the creator of Saint Laurent ‘s M7 scent).

Killian believes that Alberto Morillas understands how to bring comfort and elegance to an extreme olfactive accord. Musk Oud is a strong animalic scent, yet in a very controlled way. Killian mentions that, “he did not want a fragrance that would become anecdotal because the purpose would be too extreme and, therefore, unwearable.”

Musk Oud is a caressing animalic scent with a uniquely warm sensuality.

Perfumer: Alberto Morillas
