Extrait de Parfum
This bottle is part of the Nasomatto project. PARDON takes oud's dark richness and nudges it ever so gently, and probably while dabbing its forehead with a monogrammed handkerchief into a surprisingly softer direction for the Italian niche line. It opens with oud walking arm in arm with a faintly sweet floral note, whispered to be Magnolia down a boulevard whose olfactory backdrop seems redolent of dark, unsweetened chocolate and Tonka bean with a hint of cinnamon and a sensual, smooth sandalwood. None of these scents jostle for attention, but rather reverberate among one another to create a fragrance at once seductive and refined.
