Let me take you to the Garden of the Kings, where the Mughals and the Maharajah receive Arab princes with their royal eagles, where they dream of traveling to exotic Latin American lands, where opulence is reinvented and the woods of the Gods receive their airy foot steps. Let me take you to a new luxurious world of scent.
The Chopard Haute Parfumerie collection is expanding our senses from Mumbai to Dubai and from Tokyo to Bangladesh to discover a fascinant world of oud. The treasure tree of perfumery born in India 3500 years ago in the Sylhet region of Bangladesh, on the foothills of the Himalayas. Mystical and inestimable jewel of nature the oud is the symbol of royalty and masculinity.
This perfumes evoke Chopard’s spirit, the magic of emotions, but most of all they aline to the new luxury philosophy. It’s been ten years already the family-owned high jewellery house is profoundly linked to sustainable principals. From ethical gold to a full fine jewelry animal collection dedicated to WWF, Chopard has a conscious approach to it’s ingredients. No wander they choosed the most exclusive and respectful oud producers. Jalali Agarwood, seventh generation protector of this ancestral know-how devoted to a secular arboriculture is telling us
“What we plant is for the next generation and we use what has been planted by our ancestors”
The preciousness of the oud resin takes 40 to 50 years to process in a tree that needs at least 200 years to grow.
