The Oud Perfume ( arabic perfumes )

Few perfume oils have the mystique of Oud. Made from the fragrant resin found in Aquilaria trees, Oud is also referred to as 'Agarwood, Aloeswood and 'Eaglewood. This is the Aloe spoken of in the Bible. It has been loved and treasured for thousands of years, by mystics and romantics alike. Oud is proclaimed as a aid to spiritual meditation. Lovers use it as an aphrodisiac.

Indeed the hunger for Oud is so great that in most parts of the world Agarwood trees are nearing extinction. Most of the Agarwood on the market is now obtained through poaching. Agarwood is believed to have originated in the Assam region of India, and from there spread throughout southeast Asia. Oud now comes from India, Vietnam, China, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines... and while trees dwindle, the demand keeps growing. The cost of Agarwood oil now exceeds $27,000 per pound!

Oud is amazing!! I remember spending hours in Al Haramain and in Nabeel smelling and buying :) Alhumdulillah, I am blessed by Allah (SWT) with a husband that loves shopping and fashion!!! the thing that is impressive is how he can look at the oud itself and know what kind it is and the quality.......I'm learning.

The perfume bottle is often meant to be a physical representation of the perfume. I am not good for a fragrance descriptions but I wanted to have a perfume collections.
