Precious Oud Perfume by Van Cleef & Arpels, Like a treasured jewel, Precious Oud is a fragrance that is elegant and refined. A harmonious blend of florals, spices and woods give this fragrance a unisex appeal.

A sultry base of sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, ambergris and agarwood close the scent with a lingering kiss on the skin. Launched in 2011, this perfume is the seventh edition in the brand’s Collection Extraordinaire. It is available as a 2.5-ounce eau de parfum and comes packaged in a classic flacon.
