the nose behind this fragrance is Geza Schoen. Nawab of Oudh is essentially the spirit of traditional Indian attar wrapped up in the format of a Western spray fragrance. Think a mass of jammy rose petals, fermented magnolia blossoms, and pandan leaf over warm, spicy amber mercifully free of any vanilla that might weigh it down. Top notes are green notes, bergamot, orange, cardamom, and aldehyde. The heart is rose, magnolia, orchid, pimento, bay leaf, cinnamon, hedione. The base ambergris, musk, vetiver, labdanum, agarwood.
