Romano Ricci conceived his opus as a European vision of oud that evokes the mysterious and intriguing woman who hides behind her veil. Midnight Oud is a love song written for that ancient musical instrument called Oud in a palace where the walls are rose petals, the air breathes golden saffron and the floor is scented with sacred agarwood.
The heavy oriental notes of traditional ouds are represented here in a very wearable and refined manner. Midnight Oud is crafted as a bridge between the perfect balance of rose-chypre-patchouli and the purest Oud perfume note. It is an imaginary black flower with glittery saffron and soft incense notes, and the heavy Moroccan rose petals become a precious liquor laced with tobacco, amber, agarwood and dried fruits. The resulting scent is rich, velvety and opulent, finding the right harmony between the dark strength of Arabian perfumes and the modern idea of richness.
