Renowned for its darkness and sophistication, oud wood now lays itself bare upon contact with white almond. At the heart, a beguiling raspberry accord heightens the blond wood tones of luxurious Atlas cedar.
The bark of this incredibly tender, naked wood is delicately embraced by a voluptuous rose. Oud is illuminated and unveiled through the gentle touch of creamy sandalwood, then exalted by Madagascan vanilla tincture.

The fragrance artist’s touch
Laid bare, oud reveals its softness. In opposition to its usual intense darkness, Delphine Jelk celebrates the brightness of oud with great finesse. Unveiled in a new light, the material softens upon contact with bright woody notes to express its most delicately luminous facets.
“If Oud Nude were a colour, it would be the nude shade attributed to Constantin Brâncuși.”
According to Delphine Jelk, the scent of Oud Nude might evoke the sensually contoured sculptures of Constantin Brâncuși in light, nude tones. Pure lines, curves and contours that elevate the form… Much like how Brâncuși exalts rippling grains of wood, this fragrance unveils an abstract, minimalist, yet deeply sensual oud.
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-honored 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 Nude, oud wood reveals its most luminous facets.
