Roberto Cavalli Introduces Oud al Qasr

Roberto Cavalli Introduces Oud al Qasr

A new unisex fragrance

Roberto Cavalli has launched Oud al Qasr. Oud al Qasr follows Roberto Cavalli Oud Edition and Tiger Oud, both of which launched in 2013.

Roberto Cavalli is the brilliant designer of an unashamedly opulent and glamorous universe. With his colorful and elite sense of style, he brings an undeniably unique signature to fashion. The Roberto Cavalli Group and COTY have been working together since 2011 on the creation, development and distribution of “Roberto Cavalli” and “Just Cavalli” fragrances.

Oud is a unique scent. More than a simple wood, it is a concentrate of contrasting aromas, from the leathery quality that was featured in the original Oud Edition to the more sensual dimension showcased in Tiger Oud. The last perfume of the Oud trilogy explores yet another facet of this exceptional ingredient: its slightly animal undertones.

Conceived by master perfumer Louise Turner, this woody oriental fragrance is a journey through some of the most refined scents of the Orient. This olfactory voyage begins in the Atlas Mountains with the majestic power of cedar. The oud accord that forms the heart note of the fragrance prolongs this woody opening but adds a warm and sensuous dimension, a sense of luxurious mystery.

The ambery base note comes from Labdanum, a hand-harvested gum extract that has been used in perfumery for more than 3000 years. Facetted with pure vanilla, it gives depth and opulence to this uncompromisingly rich elixir. This vivid trail makes for a bold signature, faithful to Roberto Cavalli’s motto: never go unnoticed.

In the spirit of the Oud collection, Oud al Qasr’s bottle adopts the smooth silhouette of Roberto Cavalli’s signature perfume and its familiar stopper, the golden seal of excellence. The deep purple colour alludes to the nobility of the fragrance. It is also a symbol of balance, between red and blue, between sensuality and elegance. The colour playfully adorns the stripes of iconic tiger print collar of the bottle. The lavish coffret retains this royal purple shade, creating a pleasing contrast with the golden rivets and the stylized Roberto Cavalli logo.
