Garuda by Jul et Mad is a woody Oriental, where saffron and spices balance the exquisite Cambodian oud accord.
Garuda was inspired by the Garuda, a Khmer divinity, half man- half eagle and very important figure frequently represented in the Hindu and Buddhist religions.
An impressive number of Garuda sculptures ornate the temples of Angkor. The most impressive representation is found in a gallery of Angkor Watts, its bas-reliefs being decorated with dozens of them. At sundown, the gallery is bathed in sunlight, with all of the statues appearing as if covered in gold.
The entire composition of the perfume was built around the gold, with its two facets so opposed, but yet so complimentary. The cold aspect of the metal is represented by the fruit and spice combination, in perfect harmony with the saffron and its warmth, the whole sustained by an exquisite accord of Cambodian Oud.
