The art of fragrance layering has been woven through Middle Eastern culture for centuries, but its principles of individuality and integrity are universal. Valentino Noir Absolu Essences can be worn alone, but have been specially designed to complement Valentino Uomo and Valentino Donna Noir Absolu.
For Valentino Noir Absolu Oud Essence, perfumer Julien Rasquinet took his inspiration from one of the most iconic ingredients of traditional perfumery.
Valentino Noir Absolu Oud Essence brings powdery and sophisticated notes into focus. Revealing a powerful imprint of sandalwood and cedar, with softly spiced and floral notes of saffron and myrtle, it intensifies the notes of the fragrances with which it is layered."
