Freely inspired by oud wood from Laos, one of the most precious ingredients used in perfumery, Francis Kurkdjian created OUD satin mood in 2016 – an eau de parfum whose enveloping, shimmering silage evokes the pleasure of nestling into a delicate piece of flowing satin. This seductive, mysterious creation conveys oud’s intensity and sensuality in a quintessential French composition whose major and minor accords strike a perfect balance. 

For the first time, the 200ml OUD satin mood eau de parfum bottle features a mashrabiya- inspired decor. Delicately hand-engraved by the artisans of a Parisian workshop, this objet d’art – produced in a limited edition of only 350 pieces – required eight hours of skilled craftsmanship to adorn both sides of the deep blue bottle. Each one is unique and bears witness to outstanding artistic savoir-faire.

The extrait de parfum version of OUD satin mood magnifies the fragrance’s generously sensual and gourmand sillage. The woody, leathery accents of oud from Laos, personally selected by Francis Kurkdjian, blend with an abundance of roses and spices to create the impression of a shimmering piece of fabric. Presented in a portable roll-on format, this precious elixir can be applied to the inside of the wrists and elbows, the nape of the neck or the décolletage, where it will release its ambery, woody, floral notes on contact with the skin. The rich, silky texture will be absorbed instantly, creating a long-lasting sillage.
