Why is Oud So Special?

Why is Oud So Special?

Oud as a fragrance has been revered for millennia by many cultures, it is known for its rarity and its unique, complex and beautiful aroma. Oud is extracted from agarwood trees and produces scent profiles with notes such as fruits, spices, honey, tea, flowers and much more.

A tradition of both the Arabs and Chinese, oud has since become a staple ingredient of Western perfumes, owing to its wonderful aroma and characteristics.

It is used traditionally as perfume oil applied to the skin, in sprays such as Western perfumes or as incense sticks and the like.

Sadly most oud used in mainstream perfumes and oils around us, is in fact diluted or synthetic.

We focus on pure natural oud oil, meticulously curating and distilling the greatest scents and focusing on quality, story and scent profile above all else. Our fragrances are simply a unique experience altogether.
