THE OUD EDITIONS
UNIQUE TAKE ON OUD
Oud, with its long history of cultural influence inspired many for more than thousand years. For Vincent Micotti, delving into the true origin of Oud, and its distinctive context played in the social and cultural environment, is a key factor in creating a Oud perfume.
In the past years, Vincent Micotti has released five perfumes which took the most precious Oud oil as the main character: Oud Ankaa, Théros, Théros Elixir, Point Mort and Night of GPMH. They all have its unique identity and challenge the status quo in today's Oud world.
The broad olfactory spectrum exhibited in these perfumes identify its distinctive characters and its artistic value. "I am not a Oud dealer, I use
Oud just as using any other raw ingredients, selecting only the best
suitable ones for a specific concept I have in mind. If people want to
own Oud as "Oud", my perfumes are not for them. There are large markets
out there dealing all kinds of Oud, but my context is not at all the
same," says Vincent Micotti. "For the Théros Elixir, we even made our
own extraction with a historic piece of Kyara oud, that was a crazy
one-off project. And unsurprisingly, all kinds of Kyara Oud appeared on
the market since then."
As beautiful as any other creations from nature, Oud deserves an artistic interpretation of another kind.

Point Mort is an unusual sur-mesure perfume, and Oud is particularly chosen for its distinctive character to transmit a resilient attitude. As a bespoke project, it is created for a person who is ignited by the artistry behind its olfactory composition, so that he cannot resist sharing this extraordinary creation with every perfume enthusiast. We therefore make only an extremely small batch to fulfil this wonderful wish.
Vincent Micotti’s daring approach of characterising the Oud and the interpretation of captivated imaginations turn Point Mort into a true work of art, which demand nothing else than its artistic existence.

THÉROS ELIXIR THÉROS
THE UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER PORTRAYED BY OUD
Together with Théros, the Théros Elixir is also one part of the 3rd Micotti x Currentzis edition created in 2017. Théros is composed based on a large dose of genuine oud oil from Vietnam and Laos. It has nothing in common with the oud notes from the conventional creations.
The natural oud, especially Kyara, has a beautifully velvety and distinctively delicate character, which is the key reason for using this outrageously precious oil. This gives the noble character to the perfume, the aroma of sun-heated sand, the tender skin under the sun, the salty sea water, the bright blue sky all expand into a vast picture of dreams.
