In the depths of Australia’s ancient and enchanting Daintree Rainforest, where verdant canopies embrace ancient earth, an olfactory treasure is cultivated. Shrouded in secrecy and mystique, here agarwood (oud) is produced at the first and only agarwood plantation in Australia. This treasure – the dark and fragrant resin-embedded heartwood of Phialophoraparasitica-infected Aquilaria trees – has a rich, woody-nutty, and animalic odour. This scent has been prized for centuries in China, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East, where the smell of its thick perfumed oil is almost ubiquitous.

Dark and excessive, Silky Woods Elixir is a smoky reawakening of the Australian agarwood originally used in Silky Woods Parfum. Meticulously crafted with fig, saffron, orris, and syrupy balsam to reveal both the complex heart of agarwood and its verdant foliage, this sensual blend invites you to indulge in a sensorial journey like no other, through the depths of the Daintree Rainforest. 

United in their unwavering passion for fragrance, Dimitri and esteemed master perfumers, Olivier Cresp and Hamid Merati Kashani, have embarked on a captivating olfactory journey with Silky Woods Elixir. Stronger, richer and more intense than the original Silky Woods, this is a fragrance for true connoisseurs.

HOW IT WEARS
Silky Woods Elixir opens with a flurry of green aromatics as verdant as the canopy of the agarwood groves where its essence is born. Heightened by the lushness of sun-ripened figs and the earthen verdure of fig leaves, but warmed by saffron, sprinkled in like dappled sunlight. Then comes the overdose of agarwood – rich, golden, animalic and resinous – which intensifies and deepens the composition. Iris softly tempers the bitterness of the fig leaves, and rose lends an exquisite floral dimension to the fragrance. The dry-down is a forest floor of resins, oakmoss and vanilla, which lasts on the skin for 8-10 hours. 

LORE LOVES
If you liked Silky Woods, you’re going to LOVE Silky Woods Elixir. Not only is it stronger and longer-lasting, it’s more multi-faceted and complex. We love the addition of fig and rose in particular, which really flesh out the fragrance and enhance its agarwood heart. Silky Woods Elixir really is such an appropriate name for this fragrance – its exquisite blend smooths out all the hard edges of each note, resulting in a potent composition that is simply too good to resist.
