Oudh 36 Elixir Cologne by Al Haramain, When you splash on Oudh 36 Elixir, you revel and relax in the freshness of the ingredients. According to United Arab Emirates perfumer Al Haramain, its striking product from 2016 has «a great scent and the perfection of a well-balanced perfume.» Geranium, cistus and ylang-ylang open the fragrance with their rich floral notes. It’s an introduction that blooms fully before descending into the heart notes of cedar, patchouli and rose. This sweet, spicy heart swells, providing a wonderful textural contrast to the base notes of amber, benzoin and labdanum. The warm, simmering foundation drys down beautifully, and its slightly animalic labdanum note refers back to the fragrance’s floral opening. This long-lasting cologne is perfect for wear in the winter and fall months. Its heavy sillage leaves an enticing aromatic statement wherever you go.
