Oud Maknoon, Mysterious Oud in Arabic, is a warm, spicy, woody oud to be worn by men and women alike. The opening hits like a shot out of the dark with the top note of pepper. It soon tempers beautifully, however, with the middle note of rose, combining for a unique and lovely spicy sweetness. The dry down is more complex with base notes of oud, musk, and amber. The lingering scent has a sensuous, pleasing richness and depth. It has a generous longevity and sillage, so you can wear it lightly and enjoy it all day. This is a truly special oud for special occasions.
