In 2007, Tom Ford's "Private Blend" perfume collection was replenished with the unisex Oud Wood fragrance. This woody oriental scent is built around the resinous smoky scent of oud wood, better known as agarwood. This rather rare and expensive component, in combination with oriental spices, has a strict and refined character, its enveloping warmth enchants and draws attention to its owner. On women, the aroma takes on a delicate sweetish tint, on men, astringency and noble wood prevail.
The Oud Wood perfume opens with an exotic mixture of warmed wood agar and rosewood, spreading around a resinous-balsamic aroma with a slight hint of sweetness. Hot cardamom and spicy Sichuan pepper give the sound a harsh astringency. In the heart of the composition, a woody bouquet is complemented by noble accords of sandalwood and vetiver. The finishing notes sound unusually sensual and languid thanks to amber, creamy vanilla and tonka beans.
