John Varvatos Oud was launched in 2014, created by Rodrigo Flores-Roux. An oriental woody with notes of tobacco, juniper berries, hyssop, nutmeg, sage, cypress, saffron, cinnamon, pepper, cardamom, cloves, Turkish rose, Egyptian jasmine, osmanthus, agarwood (oud), cedar, labdanum, opoponax, incense, myrrh, leather and amber. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
From Basenotes - "Ultimately, this is a quietly masculine oud interpretation that mixes in the traditional Middle East accord with the leather and chrome rebel without a cause aesthetic John Varvatos likes to push, and it works. Steve McQueen peppered with a bit Omar Sharif, and Harleys doing wheelies over a sand dune on their way to a casbah to illegally drink that smuggled American bourbon against a backdrop of Arabesque tunes, all captured in 70mm Panavision is what I get here."
From Sephora - "I highly recommend to anyone that wants to smell different from the normal fresh scent, while not smelling like they're wearing spices around their neck."
