Royal Oud Cologne by Creed was released in 2011. Royal Oud is a synthesis of Parisian and Persian style and grace. It incorporates elements of a Persian palace with marble, wood, leather and gold along with the historical components of its personal design house. The rarity of oud makes it a treasured scent note, and to own a fragrance that features it so strongly is a fortunate occurrence. The top notes are a citrusy mixture of lemon, Sicilian bergamot and pink pepper. The heart notes reach outwith galbanum, cedar and angelica root. The base is a luxurious finish of oud, sandalwood and musk.
