Ormonde Man, a most sophisticated fragrance, despite its unconventional ingredients. Complex and full of character, sultry and mystical, the fragrance exudes soft woody notes, but it is the infusion of Oudh oil, the world’s most prized essence since time immemorial, that sets it apart, elevating the scent to one of true distinction.

Travelling to Laos to seek out the Agar tree was a special experience. Having smelt Oudh as an attar, my curiosity got the better of me. Not only did I make it to the Agar forests far away but also to Nana in Bangkok to see the steam distillation of Oudh. It was perfume treasure as I knew no-one had used this extraordinary oil in a fine fragrance.
