Encased a hand crafted wooden box that exudes sophistication and contemporary luxury.

HOW IT WEARS
This fragrance is a story that was made to be told on your skin, how Bestium develops over time is like reading a book; it takes unexpected turns and leaves you with this urge to come back for more. You get a hit of a thick animalic sweetness in its opening that settles over time. This is a must try for any oud lovers out there, as it uses one of the strongest oud fragrances in the market…oud palao.
We can’t help but be drawn immediately into the depths of the deep, sharp, almost metallic notes of this scent. The powerful head of bergamot, dual exotic roses and oriental osmanthus blend almost equally with the rich gothic woods, resins & oh so potent oud palao base of this Extract Parfum. Here, Carner Barcelona have created a truly dark, complex perfume that encapsulates the cool, dark allure of the cavernous home of a mythical, wild and untameable beast. Initially intense, Bestium opens like it sounds: sharp and strong, softening gracefully over time once the initial impact has been warmed and embedded on and into the skin. This fragrance will entice you into it’s intoxicating depths with imminent danger and undeniable power. Deep, dark and and a little bit dangerous like the very cave of the beast itself.
