Auphorie has taken their artistry to the next level with the Imperial Oud Collection. Chypre Oud Maharani is the second release from this luxurious and very rare collection.
Chypre Oud Maharani is a juxtaposition of quality natural agarwood/oud and yesteryear’s chypre theme. The scent features Auphorie's proprietary blend of the finest authentic custom-distilled oud oils from various regions as well as our custom-distilled authentic natural oakmoss. Paired with precious natural rose and jasmine extracts, the heart reveals a mysterious aura of oriental exoticism, gradually settling down to a velvety, silky-smooth cloud of oakmoss, iris, amber and (vegan) deer musk. A whopping 40% concentration of pure perfume oil in this extrait provides the most luxurious perfume experience while remaining easy to wear at the same time.
Our spin: A Midsummer Night's Dream that takes place in India. Pull back the gauzy curtain of oakmoss to reveal the interplay between enchanting flowers, delicate spices, smooth oud oils and a tantalizing squeeze of bergamot that adds just the right sparkle. The brothers Au can certainly go wild with artistry, but here the focus remains firmly on the raw materials, rather than upstaging them with theatrics. As a chypre and an oud fragrance, it’s straightforward and satisfying. Certainly for lovers of magnificent natural materials. A successful collision of two very different genres. We’re swooning.
Only one batch made. This is an extremely rare and exclusive fragrance.
