A recent discovery for me, Om is one of my favorite fragrances based on incense/oriental notes. Introduced in 2010, this oriental spicy unisex scent was inspired by Bali and has a name from the sacred Sanskrit syllable “om” or “aum”; the sound “om” in Hinduism represents the music of the universe. Moreover, on the perfume’s label the phrase “inspire… and smile…” is placed right beneath the name.
Enchanted by the excellent Green, green and green from the same house (which strangely din not inspired me any buying thought!) I was curious with respect to the newest creation therefore I sampled Om with high expectations. And the conclusion is that from the three preferred incense fragrances (L’Air du Desert Marocain and Olibanum are on top of the list!) I feel that I need them all, because every one has a different approach on the theme. Clearly, if I need to choose only one, I would go for the scent made by Andy Tauer (it is a question of subjectivity), but since last Saturday Olibanum and Om proved to be exactly what I needed in my perfume wardrobe.
The listed notes of Om are wood smoke, vanilla, incense, hot pepper, flowers, peppercorn, myrrh, clove leaf and patchouli. From the olfactory point of view, Om has a construction that showcases an air of restrained grace, never perceived by me in any perfume, until this point. Subsequent to the impetuous opening, the first part of its mid development behaves a little shy however the structure becomes more prominent while approaching dry down and lasts a good while on my skin.
Om was presented in a bottle that became a trademark for Miller et Bertaux, with its rectangular shape and the transparent glass, that reveals an amber-like liquid. Overall, Om is the accessory that makes the distinction from being well dressed to sheer elegance.
