Oud & Rose is French L’occitanes latest creation; one that resonates very well with the Middle East. I have always been a fan of Oud based scents and I consume rose water by the gallon (in my tea, as a facial toner and in Arabic desserts). Needless to say I was thrilled to work with the brand on illustrating the theme of the perfume through a series of images.
The warmth of the Oud marries well with rose from Grasse, a region in Provence known for it’s cultivation of aromatic plants. If Provence is too far of a journey our neighboring Oman hosts beautiful rose plantations too – a beautiful sight throughout mid to late August.
Few things are as beautiful as pure undisturbed desert and so that’s where we decided to host the photo shoot.
If you wish to buy a bottle HERE is the shopping link. If the perfume is too strong for you to start with I recommend that you start with the lightly scented body lotion – bonus points come with the shimmery finish. / XXX
