Fresh acidity. A greyscale of bitterness. Bright dryness.
Timbre exists on the sharper, harder edges of the woody-citrus genre. Fresh yuzu, pithy mandarin, and myrrh burst immediately and hang from an electric thread of real Vietnamese oud that acts as a linchpin throughout the composition. The woody twig snap of petitgrain and thumping green of galbanum follow, then lain upon a plank of kiln-dried cedar lumber, baking in the sun. A zippy, dry minerality creeps in the background, with a quiet, citric, resinous end note that holds a frayed-edge hologram of the earlier oud.
This is the current Timbre release, an eau de parfum.
The first release of Timbre was an eau de toilette that stemmed from the Wood/Yuzu Project featured in the Studio Series. It was a limited edition that quickly sold out. The eau de toilette will not be remade.
