Louis Vuitton Ombre Nomade
The Ombre Nomade is a scent that only men with highly eccentric tastes can truly appreciate, especially since the fragrance is not necessarily your conventional olfactory stimulant that can get anyone and everyone agreeing. It is a mixture of unique essences that are extraordinary and exquisite, fully capable of transporting you or anyone else within a sniff to an almost magical world where everything seems frozen in time.
A creation by Louis Vuitton’s master perfumer Belletrud, the Ombre Nomade’s base essence is that of oud wood. For those who are not familiar with the fragrance, oud is currently one of the planet’s most expensive and most intoxicating perfume ingredients that is best known for its very potent musky scent. Oud scent is nothing new. It has been around for many centuries in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian countries as well as the Indian subcontinent. Today, it is one of the favored perfumery bases for both men and women.
Oud is derived from tropical Agar wood which has its origins in the Indian region of Assam before it spread towards Bangladesh, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. It has a very warm sweetness to its scent, although one can always be certain that there are balsamic and woody scents as well. Since oud is generally used as a base in perfumery, it stays on the skin a lot longer than the other essences.
When taken in the light of the Ombre Nomade, you’re given the opportunity to sport a musky scent that is definitely manly. It leaves certain sweetness on your skin, perfect for attracting members of the opposite sex. The addition of balsamic and woody scents is often enough to dispel any assumptions that the fragrance is not really designed for the man of today. Oh, it is very manly and very sexy at that.
Complementing the oud base are whiffs of raspberry and benzoin accents which work to augment the naturally balsamic, woody, and sweet fragrances of oud. What is even more surprising is that, as the scent begins to dissipate into the air one is treated to a smoky wisp of heavenly incense, a characteristic that is definitely oudy.
Louis Vuitton’s Ombre Nomade may not appeal to everyone, but it sure can titillate the senses of those who know the value of rare essences when they can sniff one. It’s a great grooming gift for the man with exquisite tastes.
