Three delicious specialties which tempt the palate and modern interpretations of the most popular ingredients of perfumery – Aoud. The joyful gourmand facets, enriched with an infusion of aoud create a surprisingly sweet and playful vitality which only the most creative of master perfumers can truly achieve. Inspired by edible treats, Fruity, Candy and Sweetie are three pleasure perfumes that redefine the aoud experience. For those looking for “sweet-toothed” pleasure, each of the perfumes in the Tutti Frutti collection is so delicious that it literally cries out to be devoured. A mouth-watering guilty pleasure, the specially-made ‘Patisserie’ accord is what lends Sweetie Aoud the enveloping sweetness of fresh baked treats. The oud is surprisingly non-assertive in this composition, lying quietly tucked away in the folds of other smoky woods rather than standing proud. The opening is a light rustle of citrus and herbs leading to a cool pink rose heart, sweetened with a nutty ‘patisserie’ accord recalling the texture of sugared almonds. This pastry accord thickens into something approaching the mouthwatering smell of sweet bread dipped in cinnamon-flecked milk. Sweetie Aoud is warmly gourmand but it will never set your teeth on edge. The overall transparency of the composition and the smoky incense in the base pulls this one back from the edge just in time.
