In the early Spring of 1799, James Atkinson, an enterprising young gentleman from the wilds of Cumberland, set forth by carriage for the glorious
city of London. In his suit pocket were recipes for fine scents and toiletries of his own devising. Next to him sat a sizeable quantity of rose-scented bear
grease balm. Next to the balm sat a growly bear. 
The growly bear was thoroughly devoted to James. Within mere days the utterly fantastic balm became indispensable to London’s most uppity crust, who braved the bear at the door of 44 Gerrard Street (“that marvellous perfume shop with the most terrifying bear”) to procure sufficient stock for the Social Season.

 

 Oud Save the King is as charismatic and extravagantly elegant as the glamorous Crown Prince who inspired it. Freshly infused earl grey bergamot and iris à la boutonnière
brighten the majesty of oud, which is further exalted by the plushness of suede and an exhilarating cortège of wood essences. A scintillating dialogue between
the hieratic scents of England and the Orient, Oud Save the King is a fragrance of supreme luxury, to be worn with straight-backed posture, stiff-upper lip and a most regal jauntiness and insouciance.


In the Perfumer’s Notebook:
His Majesty the Oud Traditionally blended with patchouli, the signature oud accord in Oud Save the King has been magnificently modernised with Cypriol, a natural ingredient that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas. Cypriol exudes a powerful woodiness that is subtly balanced with watery, leathery
facets. Deepened with the precious wood essences of cedar wood from Atlas, Gurjun balm from Indonesia and gaiac wood from Paraguay this accord imparts an incomparable charismatic signature to the fragrance.

A spirited Scheherezade of oriental charms and ever-so-English subtlety, Oud Save the Queen is as captivating as the Hollywood enchantress who inspired its creation. The beguiling aura of oud is femininely wreathed in exquisite white petals of Jasmine and Orange Blossom, and intriguingly sparkled with notes of Earl Grey Bergamot and clove.
A majestic fragrance of sublimely sovereign beauty, destined to adorn our most incandescent seductresses, our most precious jewels of all-consuming and rapturous love.

In the Perfumer’s Notebook:
Her Majesty the Oud
At the heart of the Oud Save the Queen’s oud accord is a luminous alchemy between Indonesian patchouli and Norlimbanol™, the latter an emblematic creation by
Firmenich whose clear dry-woody facets are reminiscent of amber and patchouli. A precious essence of Gaiac wood deepens the accord with smoky tonalities while tonka beans add roundness and an ambery sensuality.
