Aoud – perhaps one of the most alluring words in the language of perfumery. Synonymous with the Middle East, Aoud has been a staple of Arabic culture for centuries.
Obtained from the resinous heartwood of the Aquilaria tree, the Agarwood becomes diseased. Leaving the wood dense and resinous, when distilled away, the precious material of Aoud is ready to enchant the senses.
The wood can be burnt as a form of Incense (known as Bakhoor) throughout the home or clothing, or made into a fragrant oil to apply to the skin Considered part of the Wood family of olfactive notes, Aoud is revered for is enveloping warmth and lasting power.
Over recent years, Aoud made its way into the global perfume market. Captivating the Western sensibility, it has remained far from a fad as it finds its place as the word on everyone’s lips.
