Parisian Progressive

There’s no question that oud is the “it” ingredient of modern perfumery, but so many oud scents are so content to re-hash the tried-and-true combinations that we can’t help but feel that the “modern” part of it has gotten a bit lost. Not so with Oud Vendôme, a genuinely modern oud that folds the smoky, intensely full-bodied titular ingredient fully into the contemporary Parisian chic style that Ex Nihilo does with such panache.”
