Understanding Our Artisanal Oud

If you're new to oud or an experience collector, we'd like to introduce our brand and story.

Our story originates from a time when artisanal oud was rare and secretive, a time when we were surrounded low quality and diluted oud oil. We set out on a journey to source the best oud possible, so that we could collect and share the pinnacle of true oud with the world.

Our oils are hand selected and curated for their rarity, scent and story. These are scents that are meticulously crafted and many of which come from the vault of legends of this tradition.

These are not oils which anyone can simply acquire, when you buy one of our oils, you're receiving a piece of oud history, a work of art revered and envied by countless collectors across the world.

Selecting an Oud Oil

This can be a daunting and complex decision, but fear not, we're here to make that decision easy.

The first thing is to consider what you seek in your fragrances. Are you looking for something raw, woody and powerful?

Or do you prefer something more subtle, sweeter and on the more floral side?

We list a series of notes for each oil describing the profile according to our noses, it's important to try oils to get a better understanding of the nuances in each scent profile.

Every oud is unique in its scent profile, and while we try our best to describe each oil's profile, every oil evokes something different to every user.

Understanding Price Point

Oud is costly, there's no doubt about that and although our oils can seem very expensive it's important to consider the value we deliver.

Our oud oil is pure and hand selected for its quality, we select from only a handful of master distillers and veteran collectors, ensuring you receive some of the greatest oud oil known. 

Many niche fragrances and perfume oils on the market cost several hundred dollars a bottle, for fragrance that is often diluted and contains very little in the way of oud oil and natural essential oils.

Our oud oils are pure and can be enjoyed with just a drop, allowing you to make a small bottle last for a very long time!
