Oud Stars – Alexandria III Parfum
Oud Stars – Alexandria III Parfum is a fragrance by Xerjoff. The notes of this fragrance are Palisander rosewood, lavender, cinnamon, Bulgarian rose, cedar, lily of the valley, oud, amber, sandalwood, musk, vanilla
The Alexandria series is a true achievement for Xerjoff, an elegant series of fragrances based around a rich core of exquisite florals and highest quality ouds from Southeast Asia. Each version plays out with virtuosic grandeur, finding bold new resonance in its variation- a true testament to the legendary opulence of history’s greatest metropolis. For Alexandria III, the composition keeps the same notes, but shifts away from the fruit-soaked vivaciousness of previous incarnations in favor of an even richer and woodsier blend.
Originally a limited edition of only 99 bottles, each encrusted in golden crystals, Alexandria III is no less radiant in its stunning new packaging. Lavender is still prominent in the opening, but now it brightens a warmer, richer heart of rosewood and lush, narcotic Bulgarian rose, softened with just the right touch of lily of the valley. The oud is every bit as profound as it was in previous iterations, but in III it leaves behind the animalic potency to follow the warm, powdered contours of a base of amber and rich sandalwood that will be wonderfully familiar to fans of Xerjoff’s masterpiece Richwood. But make no mistake- with its luscious floral glow, Alexandria III is a masterwork all its own.
