What is the origin of oud? In the heart of a wood with oriental scents

 

Originating from the Arab 'al-oud', oud is popular in the Middle East, where it has been used for over 3,000 years for its woody, spicy fragrance. The tree species from which it is extracted are rare, including Aquilaria, which is found in the heart of Southeast Asia.

Oud: a precious, spicy-scented resin from South Asia

Oud is created from calambrac wood, which is formed by a resinous secretion in the heart of the tree when it is infected or in danger. A tree that has suffered trauma will secrete a unique and highly sought after resin. However, only 1 in 100 trees have this resin, making it an extremely rare product, thus enhancing its inestimable value.

 

The extraction of oud is a very complex procedure: to avoid removing healthy wood, there are now producers of oud wood who only remove the useful part of the tree, leaving the healthy part intact.

Original uses of oud

Oud wood, also known as agarwood or aloe wood, has a multitude of spiritual and medicinal uses.

 

Coveted for its amber and cedar notes, oud has religious connotations, particularly in Buddhism, where it is used as incense to accompany meditations with its delicate, intoxicating scent. There is also bakhour, specific to Muslim culture, which is used to perfume clothes and hair with a pleasant and lasting scent. Oud wood is often combined with jasmine and sandalwood to create oud, a softer, sweeter scent. Oud can also be used in the form of an oil to be incorporated into your baths.

Which perfume smells like oud?

Oud wood perfume is a combination of amber and musk attar. Derived from Arabic, attar is a non-alcoholic perfume used in the Middle East. The natural scent of oud is unique and expensive, and is reserved for luxury brands due to the rarity of the material, which is explained by the fact that the trees that produce oud are now protected.
