From the Arabic word for “original, ” Aseel is a potently spicy, yet delightfully fresh attar creation that more than lives up to its name. Featuring rich, traditional accords well known on the Arabian peninsula such as cardamom and oud oil, it represents both the origins of Arab culture, while also feeling vibrantly new. Aseel opens with an electric current of ginger and cardamom amplified with the citrussy freshness of bergamot. The rich, lively spice theme continues in the heart with coriander and nutmeg, both in service of a stunning geranium note- fresh, rich, and rosy. And finally, in the true spirit of an attar, a potent and extremely long lasting base of two separate oud accords- Thai and Indian- which blend with smooth musk and cedarwood to create a sumptuous and sensual tapestry. Lush and layered enough to satisfy any attar lover, yet fresh enough to wear any day, Aseel is a standout.
