As complex and gorgeous as the Zellige mosaic tiles from which it takes its inspiration, Diptyque’s first foray into oud fragrance is an enchanting, exotic work of art all its own. Built around the titular Palao, a robust and renowned oud extract found only in Northern Laos, Oud Palao showcases all aspects of this wondrous ingredient- dark woods, sensual animalics, and creamy depths, all balanced against rich Bulgarian rose, and a deep, spiritual incense blend. In the smooth, rich drydown, sandalwood and vanilla add depth and longevity, while the lusciously elegant oud lingers, delivering a perfectly measured drop of smokiness alongside lightly earthy patchouli and resinous labdanum. The resultant balance is so smooth, so sumptuous, and so easy to love that we can picture it holding center stage at the most lavish of galas, or just as easily, keeping you company by a roaring fire on a moonlit night. In other words, as perfect of an oud fragrance as Oud Palao may be, it is, first and foremost, a perfect Diptyque.
