At Bond No. 9, the Oud has come out of the closet and transformed itself into a smooth, full-throttle New York-centric perfume. New York Oud is an expectation-defying oud and has modernized and urbanized the exotic oud staple and gave it a New York verve that it’s never had before. Its oud concentration is a full 30 percent. The fragrance has a dynamic self-assured smoothness – an adventurously creamy velvet texture.
