Fragrance description Creed Royal Princess Oud
Royal Princess Oud is a woody floral fragrance for women from the workshop of a unique, dynastic and privately owned Parisian niche perfume brand. As well as an exceptional tradition passed down from father to son since 1760 and a celebrated history (more than 250 years of creating exceptional fragrances for royal families and other exacting customers with refined tastes), the Creed brand can also boast the use of classic techniques when processing the rare materials selected for the production of its unrivalled perfumes.
One of the main aromatic components in the Royal Princess Oud Eau de Parfum, the wood of the Aquilaria tree, also known as eagle wood, agarwood, oud, aoud or (in Arabic) oudh, is a fascinating material with a resinous aroma and the most expensive wood in the world, which has been used for centuries to make incense and (especially Arabian) perfumes. This truly regal ingredient, also sometimes called “liquid gold”, gives the woody floral Creed Royal Princess Oud fragrance an engaging Oriental tinge.
Royal Princess Oud, the work of Olivier Creed, a leading perfumer from the sixth generation of the Creed dynasty, is another of the fragrances from the Creed brand which draws on the brand’s own significant history for its inspiration. This Eau de Parfum revives the designs of Henry Creed II from the beginning of the 20th century, when the Creed name was closely associated with the royal court.
The imaginative aromatic composition of Creed Royal Princess Oud opens in the head with notes of Sicilian bergamot, roses and sweet violets. The heart contains jasmine, vanilla, patchouli and Tuscan irises, while the base consists of tones of Siamese benzoin, sweet gum from Thailand, sandalwood from Mysore and ancient resin acquired from bark or shrubs in Asia. The overall aroma combines powdery, woody and floral aspects with balsamic and oud attributes and the intriguing touch of patchouli and is seductive, passionate, refined and stylish.
The Creed Royal Princess Oud Eau de Parfum will be especially appreciated by women who like seductive and, at the same time, stylish powdery, woody, floral fragrances. It will appeal to ladies who enjoy their passion for life and in so doing are not only always seductive, but also exquisitely elegant. Royal Princess Oud is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year, but it stands out best in the spring and autumn months.
The perfumes from the Creed brand are attractive not only thanks to their enchanting fragrances, but also their exceptional and beautiful packaging. The elegantly shaped, pinkish Royal Princess Oud flacon comes in a white box bearing the word “millesime”, which is the hallmark of quality. It indicates that the very best ingredients from the given year were used in the production of the perfume.
