Tom Ford has added a woody marine oud fragrance to its Private Blend collection named Oud Minérale. Key ingredients include Salty Seaweed, Pink Peppercorn, Oud Blend, Styrax, Ambergris Accord, and Fir Balsam. It’s a classic oud scent but with a fresher dimension.

Tom Ford tell us Oud Minérale was designed to, “mix Oud with the fresh exuberance of the ocean, capturing the refreshing play of surf and sea against the burning flame of smoked wood”.

Representing the “vitality and force” of the ocean is; bright pink peppercorn, included to spike the opening of the fragrance with a spritz of sea spray. A salty hint of seaweed submerges the heart with a marine aroma while an earthy balance is provided courtesy of fir balsam. At the base; an addictive ambergris accord blended with the warmth of styrax.
