Dubai: Fragrance Design & Mixology (Private Session)
Resinous wood from the Aquilaria tree (also known as Agarwood), found mostly in Southeast Asia. Oud is produced by a reaction of the tree to fighting off fungus. The olfactive character of Oud is rich, powerful and complex, showing facets that can be described as woody, earthy, nutty, musty and animalic. Tobacco is also a common characteristic and sometimes even slightly camphoraceous. It is therefore no surpise that Oud is a highly prized Ingredient with a price to match.
