DUBAI: Parisian luxury house Guerlain has launched three new oud fragrances as part of its art-inspired collection, L'Art & La Matière. To introduce the perfumes, the almost 200-year-old brand teamed up with Moroccan artist Ghizlane Agzenaï, who was selected to create the new “collection plates” — the lid designs that top the perfume bottles.
"To celebrate the thousand and one colors of oud wood, the young Moroccan artist Ghizlane Agzenaï has created a collection plate, whose interlaced geometric forms and colours give the bottle a geometric, almost hypnotic modernity," read a description on the website.
The three new perfumes are Oud Nude, Cherry Oud and Oud Khol. "With Oud Nude, Cherry Oud and Oud Khôl, Guerlain perfumers reveal the olfactive colors of oud wood, a black material with a powerful and complex fragrance trail," reads the website.
Born in Tangier, Agzenaï has been inspired by artists such as visual artist Victor Vasarely and painter Frank Stella. The artist has exhibited her works in Casablanca, Rabat, Paris, Barcelona and Berlin.
