Nicolai Incense Oud by Nicolai Perfume. An oriental fragrance for women, Nicolai Incense Oud features some of the most sumptuous and stirring
ingredients the perfume world has to offer. Released in 2016, the fragrance opens with ambrette, a slightly sweet and musky plant, and artemisia, a bitter and green herbaceous element. This attention-grabbing introduction is absorbed by rich heart notes of Atlas cedar, Cambodian oud, coriander, Cypriol oil, patchouli and rose, their balsamic, herbal and
floral accords creating a heady depth and dimension. The intense heart notes account for the fragrance's impressive longevity and strong sillage. At the fragrance's base are notes of resinous amber and animalic castoreum, incense, musk and styrax. The earthiness of the fragrance comes alive in these lower notes, a fitting contrast to the more sweet and spicy upper notes.
French fragrance house Nicolai presents the elixir in a simple square-shouldered clear glass flacon with a gold cap. The container features the brand's logo and the perfume's name in black script.
