Terry de Gunzburg

Two new fragrances from Parisian parfumeur Terry de Gunzburg are encased in delicate filigree patterns fit for the Orient Express... 


We’re admirers of parfumeur and cosmetics queen Terry de Gunzburg’s original ‘Terryfic Oud’ scent, which launched in 2013 and added a twist of Parisian luxury to this rather over-exposed Middle Eastern ingredient. Now two complementary fragrances have launched: 'Terryfic Oud L’Eau', which may appeal to oud-phobes thanks to its injection of lighter, fresher citrus notes and lavender; and 'Terryfic Oud Extrême', which accelerates in the opposite direction with intense levels of rare oud wood, rose and leather notes. The jewel-like bottles are things of beauty, featuring an embellished design inspired by de Gunzburg’s love of oriental art and smooth, pebble-like gold stoppers.
