Everything you need to know about Oud

Oud oil, also known as agarwood oil or aloeswood oil, is a highly prized and aromatic essential oil derived from the resinous heartwood of the agarwood tree (Aquilaria species). Agarwood is a rare and valuable wood that forms in the heartwood of these trees as a result of a fungal infection. The infection triggers the tree to produce a dark, aromatic resin as a defense mechanism, which imparts a distinct and captivating fragrance to the wood.


The process of agarwood formation is quite complex and can take decades, making it a scarce and sought-after material. Because of its rarity and the labor-intensive extraction process, oud oil is one of the most expensive essential oils in the world, often referred to as "liquid gold." It has been used for centuries in traditional perfumery, incense, and medicinal practices across various cultures in Asia and the Middle East.

Oud oil is known for its rich, deep, and complex aroma profile, which can range from woody and earthy to sweet and balsamic, with hints of spice and resinous notes. It is often used as a base note in perfumery to add depth and longevity to fragrances. Due to its potency, a small amount of oud oil can go a long way, and it is commonly diluted before being used in perfumes or personal care products.

Given its luxurious and distinctive scent, oud oil is highly prized in the fragrance industry and is used to create high-end perfumes and colognes. It's also used in various other applications, such as traditional medicine, aromatherapy, and as an ingredient in incense and scented candles.
