Base notes Sandalwood, Oud, Vanilla.


“Guerlain L’art & La Matiere Oud Nude is first discovered by the curve of white almond, like a long polished wood, where the sensuality of cumin smells of warm skin. In the heart, a disturbing raspberry accord like the imprint of a kiss enhances the blondness of the sumptuous Atlas cedar.

Illuminated by this clear cedar, the oud wood is revealed, softened by the milky sap of sandalwood then exalted by the tincture of vanilla from Madagascar. A true signature of Guerlain, this exceptional ingredient comes from pods from organic farming. Using expertise refined by Guerlain over a century, these pods are cold infused in alcohol from organic farming until they become a tincture.”


"When it comes to Oud Nude, the perfumer Delphine Jelk tried to capture the beauty and sensuality that the human anatomy has to offer, just like Michael Angelo’s statue of King David, but this time, in perfume form. This scent includes wood, cedar and sap of sandalwood, further stressing the raw beauty of the natural ingredients that goes hand in hand with the healthy and natural body image.”
