This compelling blend of divine woods, patchouli, and an elegantly parched oud is a scent of adornment and ritual, inspired by the Solah Shringar or sixteen adornments, a handed down ceremonial set of symbolic customs applied to Hindu brides during the wedding preparations. These detailed ordinances govern jewelry and decoration for the hair, face hands, feet, and eyes. The original belief was the beautification of the sixteen body parts would protect the bride against any negative effects of the moon cycle. The rootiness of a malachite vetiver note supports the ligneous oud and unusually nutty patchouli. A gasp of antiseptic cypriol and cypress is key as woods and powerful musks drop into the skin. There is subtle power at play in Carved Oud, just enough glitter and pomp to impress, but the devil is in the graven oud, reserved and immaculate but oh-- that smoky gaiac finish-- will seduce you.
