Oud, The gold of fragrances.

The most precious ingredient of all, oud is the scented resin from a tree originating in Asia. Used for centuries for its medicinal and spiritual properties, it is an iconic feature of Middle-Eastern culture and fragrances.​

A rare ingredient, with a powerful and mystical whisper, that Les Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle enhances through the Desert Gems collection.

THE NIGHT unveils absolute oud, used in inordinate amounts. For PROMISE, it’s oud behind a smokescreen, enhanced by the rose, which reveals itself on the skin. With DAWN, it unleashes its brilliance, like an ode to the first light of dawn, to become celestial and flamboyant in THE MOON.
