Pure and simply a tribute to the wonder of oud, The House of Oud's Crop series is - quite literally - the cream of the The House Of Oud’s oud plantation crop. Each year a selection of the best quality oud is stored and bottled, as a memory of the season that generated it.
Crop 2019 is another unexpected union where sweet, milky coconut notes and the luxurious elegance of brand owner Mohammed Nashi's private oud reserves meld to create a sensual blend of contrasts. As previously reported to Fragrantica, Crop 2019 is only a 5% concentration of coconut water, oud wood from Burma and seventeen-year-old oud oil from New Guinea. Only 250 bottles were made.
It may seem like a simplistic short formula, but Crop 2019 contains a truly wonderful and delightfully bizarre combination of notes. The oud is thick and pronounced and is obviously of astounding quality, but the milky facets of the coconut water blurs and smudges the sharper parts of it's spikey, wooded edges and it's as if the perfume is somehow both a sweet, gentle, coconut tinged powder and a hard, masculine oud all at the same time.
