Once upon a time in my younger days I was working in a very famous toy store in Paris called the Nain Bleu. At summer time princesses from the Middle East would visit then several minutes after their arrival, the store was surrounded, invaded by an extraordinary fragrance I did not know.
Several years later, when I became a perfume designer, I was on a business trip in Dubai and came across this fragrance again. I must say that I really love it. You never forget it. It is for me a reflection like a mirror of a wonderful sharing of civilization.
Aoud fragrance makes me remember the magic world of the Middle East.
