Master perfumer Alienor Massenet (IFF) conceived DAVIDOFF Agar Blend as a bridge between the Western and Eastern cultures. To illustrate it, she imagined a rich and terribly addictive oriental woody fragrance. In the top notes of the fragrance, sophisticated cinnamon leaves create a slightly spicy prelude with light clove undertones to which black pepper adds a drier, fresher and more vibrant dimension. This striking overture is followed by agarwood, also known as Oud, the most expensive wood in the world. Raw and sophisticated at the same time, oud is a lush and incredibly sensuous note that introduces a mildness characteristic of the Oriental perfumery tradition. Guaiac wood oil reinforces this suave, hypnotic facet and brings soft and balsamic woody notes to the fragrance. In the drydown, emblematic ingredients of the Middle East enhance the agarwood trail. The long-lasting benzoin mingles its sweetness with the addictive mystery of ambreine and a vibrant amber accord.
