Aoud Vanille by Mancera is a Oriental Vanilla fragrance for women and men. This is a new fragrance. Aoud Vanille was launched in 2015. The nose behind this fragrance is Pierre Montale. Top notes are agarwood (oud), saffron, black pepper and cardamom; middle note is floral notes; base notes are madagascar vanilla, guaiac wood and sandalwood.
Warm, rich, mysterious and striking, Aoud Vanille is a captivating scent that hovers between oriental and gourmand. The aoud here is front and center, anchoring a powerful opening of sharp agarwood, savory cardamom and redolent saffron that quickly disavow any notions that this will be an overly dessert-y pushover. A floral heart softens things slightly in transition to the vanilla-driven base, but it’s a vanilla with backbone, anchored by a full bodied woodsiness that confirms Aoud Vanille’s unisex bona fides and keeps the central vein of aoud detectable for hours. If Aoud Vanille is a gourmand, then it’s one reminiscent of bold, adventurous cooking from a top tier chef; if it’s an oriental, it’s swathed in the precise, creamy comfort of a grand master. We’d prefer to think of it as the best of both worlds.
