Bois De Oud Candle

DESCRIPTION

The scent of magnolia, wrapped into the sensuality of birch and labdanum, announces the rich notes that characterize this almost mystical fragrance: an alliance of precious wood notes dominated by the mysterious Oud, whose warm scent blends into the delicately fruity wake of the davana, mingled with evocative notes of distant horizons: incence, myrrh and benzoin.

Oud is derived from the tropical agar tree. When it is parasited by a mould known as Phialophora parasitica it reacts by producing a dense, dark and fragrant resin to protect itself. It is the resin-embedded heartwood of the tree that is the source of Oud.
