Oud Perfume: Premium Smash Quality; Buy It Now!

What is oud perfume and why does it matter?

When searching for luxury scents, wood is not commonly the first thing that comes to the average persons’ mind. However, did you know that one of the most expensive natural raw ingredients in the world is a wood? It is this ingredient that makes up oud perfume.

It’s called ‘oud’ and oud-based perfumes and oils are making a statement in the world of perfumery! This is why..

Oud comes from a tropic agar tree that can be found growing naturally in the Middle East, although it is thought to have originated from Assam, India. When this tree becomes infected by a mould called Phialophora Parasitica the tree produces a dark, dense and fragrant resin to protect itself.

This raw material is then harvested and collected so that the oil can be abstracted.

Called “astonishingly rare” by New York Times perfume critic Chandler Burr, it’s not a surprise by what comes next. The scent has been known to sell for as much as $30,000 a kilogram in its most pure forms.

The History of Oud Perfume

Oud has been used in perfumery for thousands of years. Emperors and pharos of the past have always had oud at the top of their fragrance lists because of how expensive and luxury it is.

Oud as a scent ingredient has a long history. The Chinese mentioned its being extracted for incense in central Vietnam in the third century AD. By the late 16th century Vietnamese traders were exporting it to China and Japan, where it has been burned as incense for centuries.

Even now in our times, the very best oud’s demand astronomical prices. Especially among the Saudi and Gulf elite.

In recent times oud perfumes have become very popular in the west. You will now find oud stocked on the shelves of most big brand names in places like New York and London.

What Does Oud Perfume Smell Like?

Oud itself has an incredibly unique and distinctive smell. It’s bold, strong and powerful fragrance is not for the light-hearted. At first, it can come as a bit of a shock to the nose, especially if you are not used to strong smells. But after a while it slowly grows on you until you cannot get enough of the scent.

Its striking scent can be detected from afar and tends to last on clothing for up to three days. On skin it normally lasts up to a day depending on whether or not you wash the area that the oud has been applied.

In a nutshell, imagine a strong pleasant woody scent sometimes with a hint of smoke. That’s oud perfume.

These days oud has become extremely popular all over the world. Oud perfume is now on the rise and many big brands compete to bring about the best oud scents.
