Guerlain commits to the bee, sentinel of the environment

A pitch-dark, leather-toned interpretation of oud wood

Capacity : 100 ML

The fragrance artist’s touch

Oud Wood

Black by nature, oud is considered to be one of the most mysterious materials used in perfumery. The penetrating fragrance of this precious substance lies in its resin, secreted from the core of the wood.

Grown sustainably and harvested by hand following a time-honoured ritual, the oud chosen by Guerlain Perfumers is sourced from the forests of Bangladesh on the border with Assam. Its essence exudes elegantly woody scents with leathery, subtly animalic tones.

With Oud Khôl, oud wood unveils its darkest facets.

In the Perfumer’s words

“In this interpretation of oud, I wanted to capture the incandescent aromas of bakhoor, the incense that has been burned in the Middle East for centuries.”
Thierry Wasser,
Guerlain Master Perfumer

THE ART OF BOTTLING

Taking inspiration from the Guerlain heritage Square Bottle (1870), the L’Art & La Matière bottle is an exceptional object whose design exudes unisex sophistication steeped with modernity.
Made by Pochet du Courval—historic glassmaker of the House—it is infinitely refillable at selected Guerlain Boutiques.
