Plush, velvety, and vividly green. Arabian Timber opens effervescently with notes of herbal lavender, bright orange blossom, freesia, lily of the valley, bergamot and gentle woodiness. Simultaneously, oodles of galbanum and oakmoss lend their sharp, green bitterness to the composition. Overall, the effect is cold and soapy, aldehydic even. As the bergamot fades away completely and the green accord softens, the middle becomes a rich, deep floral one where lofty Bulgarian rose together with jasmine, gardenia and orris sit atop a bed of dewy patchouli. Advancing toward the dry drown, honey’s arrival lends lingering sweetness to the creamy sandalwood and faintly peppery cedar that, back-boned by the still softly persistent oakmoss, form the eventual woody-amber-tonka nuanced base.
