Few perfume oils have the mystique of Oud. Made from the fragrant resin found in Aquilaria trees, Oud is also known as Agarwood, Aloeswood and Eaglewood. This is the aloe that is 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 the fragrant Oud oils for centuries. Trade routes for fragrant products 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 (Avicin).
Oud is one of the most precious and natural woody essential oils available today. Its composition evokes different facets: woody, animal, sensuality and sophistication. It has the power to give richness to compositions and, for this reason, it combines with other notes to create a more robust and versatile perfume. In this blend, Oud blends with other precious woody notes such as Cedre Atlas, Java Vetiver and Sandalwood to emphasize the natural wood and leather character of this beautiful formula.
