Inspired by the famed Gladiators of Ancient Rome, courageous warriors who dominated and entertained in the Colosseum, Gladiator Oud opens with a powerful and thrilling accord of salty, elemental ambergris. Cardamom combines with the cool of Egyptian geranium for an impression of steel and strength. Hay absolute, Haitian vetiver and cumin seed capture the sun warmed earth of the gladiatorial arena. Oud oil and cedarwood bring nobility and elegance to the battle, with the gold and glory of victory elicited through accords of intense saffron and honey.
This fragrance exudes luxury and elegance.

“The gladiator we had in mind as our inspiration for this scent is a noble warrior. A victor with the courage, power, wisdom and skill necessary to win in the gladiatorial arena, but also a natural born leader with confidence, integrity and dignity. We imagined a charismatic character commanding deep respect and affection like Maximus Decimus Meridius the legendary Gladiator played by Russell Crowe.
My dream was to create an iconic perfume befitting the name: an addictive and wearable oud combining the skill and physicality of a combat with the nobility of a true leader; all within the impressive theatre of the gladiatorial arena.
To realise this we collaborated with Julien Rasquinet. Gladiator Oud is a magnetic, unisex and effortlessly confident scent.”
