Oud- one of nature’s most unique materials; an aromatic resin, scented with subtle notes and known as The Black Gold of Perfumers.

Traditionally Oud was used only for the most precious and mythical concoctions, noted for its powerful and rich character with notes of deep-wood, animalistic, balsamic and even a honey feel and texture to a fragrance. It’s incredibly popular right now across high-end fragrances, and delivers a real ‘man smell’.

We smell Texas Cedarwood Fraction OrPur, Oud Wood, Indonesian Patchouli, Australian Sandalwood, Haitian Vetiver, Guaiac Wood and Pashminol. Ideal for Autumn/ Winter- the cooler months- 1ooml.
