With Or de Calambac, the Master Perfumer frees himself from the history of oud by reinventing it and giving it the colors, energy, and tastes of lush Latin America and its great seducers. He has imagined an epicurean oud, from whence Oud Assafi radiates all the wealth of the land where spices and noble ingredients are born to fill in the senses. After envisioning this oud discovering the New World, Alberto Morillas brings it back, redolent with a luxuriance of new smells and tastes.
“I imagined Or de Calambac as an avant-garde oud freed from its historical heritage, traveling to the borders of a new continent and immersing itself in a territory that it has never explored before. A gourmet and epicurean oud with warm and cold gold glints that is addictive; that seduces and is savored through all the nuances of hot and fresh spices like cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, and pepper; gourmet notes like cocoa, tonka bean, and vanilla; and the warm, woody notes of vetiver and gaiac wood. These raw materials evoke to me all the natural riches of South America and the history of the trade routes on which they voyaged around the world.” – Alberto Morillas, Master Perfumer Or de Calambac was launched in 2019.
