Oudh Infini by Dusita at Indigo Perfumery
Oudh Infini, with rich Agarwood and a sensual Siamese note of Benzoin and Sandalwood, channels the joy of exotic adventure & discovery at Indigo Perfumery.
The opening is a unique blend of rich Oude Palao from Laos and precious Rose de Mai, balanced by the sweetness of Tunisian Orange Flower Blossom.
At the heart, opulent, balsamic notes of Siamese benzoin blend with the sensual warmth of Indian Sandalwood from Mysore.
The base notes are a long-lasting harmony of Vanilla Absolute from madagascar, a fabulously rich and rare note of Musk and the sensuality of Civet.
Perfumer: Pissara Umavijani
50 ml. EXTRAIT spray, 7.5 ml. Travelsize and .5 ml. glass spray sample
"Dawn in the sky: a tiny stream of gold flows and expands, imperceptibly, until it covers the whole sky and turns itself into silver." -Montri Umavijani
Oudh Infini is the most prim oud fragrance I have ever smelled. Don't let your guard down, though - this is true oud in all of its woody, fecal majesty. The addition of civet makes this a fragrance not for the faint-hearted, and this should certainly be no one's first foray into oud. However, the perfumer accomplishes something quite profound: a clean oud. This is a barnyard that has been recently scrubbed, replenished with fresh hay, and is home to several well-groomed horses.
The pungent primary oud note smoulders alongside a soapy orange blossom, and the entire composition is rounded out with a touch of rose and a hair of civet, just to emphasize that a clean barn is, after all, still a barn. The extrait performs as it should, easily lasting over 24 hours on skin with a modest projection of about 12 inches for the first 6-8 hours before withdrawing closer to the skin.
After trying all of the Parfums Dusita collection, I can say that Oud Infini is the absolute stand-out fragrance, trailed closely by Issara and La Douceur de Siam. Give them all a try, though, to find your own. Pissara Umavijani's talent should be experienced by all, and now it can be, with Indigo's generous sampler and the addition of travel sprays from the House itself.
I've sampled dozens of oud fragrances and this one is not for me. Simply put, this smells like scented toilet paper that was only slightly used. I cannot speak of longevity as it got scrubbed it after a couple hours because....yep it's still feces and some sort of flower. Glad I sampled first.
