Few perfume oils have the mystique of Oud. Made from the fragrant resin found in Aquilaria trees, Oud is also referred to as Agarwood, Aloeswood and Eaglewood. This is the Aloe spoken of in the Bible. It has been loved and treasured for thousands of years, by mystics and romantics alike. Oud is proclaimed as an aid to spiritual meditation. Lovers use it as an aphrodisiac. The people of Arabia have embraced fragrant Oud oils for centuries. Trade routes to obtain fragrant goods were established throughout Arabia and the Middle East long before 1500 BC. It was not until the 10th century AD that the first true perfume extract was created, using the distillation method of Ibn Sina (Avicina).
In Bois d‘Oud we used spices to emphasize its natural oriental, spicy characteristic. A fresh, vivifying top note of bergamot evolves towards a sensual heart of delicate flowers and sun-kissed fruits. The captivating wooden trail is enriched by vanilla and musky notes.
