Extrait de Parfum
Dark Matter, our absolute oud masterpiece of the year.
This represents Elixir Attar’s first perfume of the smoke series set to be seconded by our Kyara smoke perfume which is in the works now. This perfume is a symphony of dark notes for the lovers of extremely heavy oud based blends. This perfume also is more like an attar and has a very long life, it is a wintery perfume, but we felt it is the time to release it now because our travel plans may disrupt its release in early winter because of the other planned releases.
