Hermès OUD ALEZAN is an olfactory masterpiece, a symphony born from the exceptional collaboration between Christine Nagel, the brilliant perfumer at Hermès, and a truly extraordinary oud. This fragrance is a poetic expression inspired by Nagel’s intimate and sensual memory of a chance encounter with a horse boasting a chestnut coat. This vivid recollection has been meticulously transformed into a captivating fragrance that transcends traditional gender boundaries, making it equally alluring for both men and women.

The composition skilfully marries the enveloping oud with a contrasting, impactful duo of roses, creating an addictive, powerful, and intimate experience that is among the very best in the world of fragrances. OUD ALEZAN encapsulates the essence of the equestrian world, bringing forth the authentic scent of heated muscles, the warm breath of the animal, and the earthy aroma of sawdust, all within a beautifully crafted fragrance.
