It is not an easy task to create perfume.
Too much of it, it becomes too costly and the effect may as desired
Too little of it, it makes you think if there were any oud inside this bottle at all.
Teone overcame this difficult task and came up with this jaw-dropping, head-turning agarwood perfume. Proudly introduce to you
"Kodama 木霊 (wood spirit) eau de parfum is a unisex oud blend featuring Superior Evergreen Vietnamese oud from Grandawood. Kodama is a close-wearing silk robe, attenuated for your own enjoyment and for the haunting trail that your lover will associate with you, and you alone. This scent draws you into a lingering embrace, for just one more moment to deeply inhale you, it summons the sort of kisses on the back of your neck that carry you away.
Kodama features hand-tinctured Murraya Blossoms, Egyptian Geranium, Orange Blossom, Vietnamese Oud, Mysore Sandalwood, hand-tinctured Tonka beans, Ambrette Seed and my Woods accord of Cedarwood, Cypress, Spruce and Fir Needle"
Made by Teone Reinthal
Kodama is best suited to noses that know and love real oud, and the leathery green notes that underpin the softwoods and delicate florals of the composition. A perfume for perfumists.
Unisex. Elegant. Delicate. Superb.
"From the beginning, you are met with the sweet, floral-citrusiness of the murraya blossom. Supporting this is the green-woody hum of her woods “chord” that lasts through the entire experience. A soft geranium appears and then orange blossom, which continues with the floral-citrusiness. The orange blossom sticks around for quite a while and just continues to get slightly sweeter as the warm tonka bean and Mysore set in. The beautiful Vietnamese Oud begins to show itself, but is a bit more reserved and blended-in than the Oud in Black Spruce. An earthy nuttiness accents the Oudiness with the addition of Ambrette seed. This Oudy earthiness and the green woody accord finish out the very long wear" (SydnorIII,2019)
