Fragrance description


Guerlain Oud Khol is a new fragrance for women and men launched in 2022 under L’art et La Matière collection.

“Intense and mysterious, a blacker than black oud”

The darkest nuances of oud wood are revealed by the gaze of the Guerlain Perfumer in this darker than black fragrance, with dark accents of smoked wood and leather.”

In this work around oud wood, I wanted to capture the incandescence of bakhoor, this bewitchingly scented incense that has been burned for centuries in the Middle East. »  By Thierry Wasser Guerlain Master Perfumer.

“Recognizable by its darkness, oud wood is a material with a thousand and one olfactory nuances. In Guerlain Oud Khôl, Thierry Wasser, Guerlain Master-Perfumer, has chosen to highlight the darkest of them. Like this kohl that purifies the eye as much as it intensifies the gaze, oud wood allows the Master-Perfumer Guerlain to achieve absolute black.

In the opening, the metallic light of the aldehydes makes it possible to define this darkness more precisely, to reveal its depth. Magnified by this enhancer, Oud Khôl switches to a leathery and charcoal accord, as if to further darken the oud wood. Finally, a foam accord with carbon reflections enriches this palette. Then, it is the unexpected delight of a caramelized praline that allows Thierry Wasser to temper the intransigence of oud wood.

hypnotic, fascinating, black can also be seductive exacerbating oud wood to the absolute,To compose this noir de noir trail, Thierry Wasser plunges oud wood into an absolute black darkened with smoky, toasted and mineral notes. An ultimate olfactory density, where you get lost until dizzy.

It was by thinking of a superlative black that Thierry Wasser wanted to exacerbate the intensity of a dense and deep oud wood like kohl. According to the Perfumer, this ultra-black trail could be reminiscent of the creations of Anish Kapoor”
