Composition of the fragrance
Accord Oud pairs the dark, spicy aroma of agarwood with its direct opposite in the form of ripe blackberry. The sweet woody composition is deepened with notes of rum and leather. The dry, herbal green aroma of sage then leads the fragrance down to the sensual base of patchouli and musk.
Story of the fragrance
Accord Oud is one of the two Byredo fragrances built around agarwood, with special attention paid to the historical and cultural meaning of this ingredient. This note has been inspiring perfumers for centuries and was even mentioned in the ancient Indian vedas. In the Arabic world, it is used as a perfume ingredient as well as part of rituals.

About the brand Byredo
Byredo, a Swedish brand of distinctive niche perfumes, is the brainchild of the highly unique Ben Gorham, the son of an Indian mother and a Canadian father. Growing up in Toronto, New York, and Stockholm, he studied art, but a chance meeting with perfumer Pierre Wulff convinced him to focus on creating fragrances instead of painting.
He was inspired by memories of a trip to his mother’s hometown in India, where he discovered a love for the aroma of spices and incense. He linked these oriental scents with Nordic minimalism and, with the motto “less is sometimes more”, he captures his Scandinavian roots. In 2006, he founded one of the most progressive niche perfume brands today.
Diptyque fragrances are distinguished by pure and simple compositions that perfectly highlight individual ingredients. Byredo perfumes are as exceptional as their creator. Envelop yourself in modern, minimalist, yet distinctive fragrances.
