Oudh is among the world's most costly raw scent materials by far. This essential oil is also known as Agarwood and harvested from a fungus-infected bark of the agar tree, which is located mainly in thick South-East Asian, Indian, and Bangladeshi woodlands. It is either removed from the wood or melted with the resin by filtration. Just one tree in the wild is considered to hold an infected heartwood for every ten trees. These older trees are sought after by specialist perfumers because of their resin's excellent rich fragrance. Most of these older trees are now, sadly, seen as endangered species. There's no doubt why Oudh Attar is so expensive.
The value of Oudh Attar
The yearly demand of Oudh receives about 6 billion dollars, which is sometimes calculated to be 1 1/2 times the size of gold. It is often called "liquid gold" for these factors. Forbes has revealed that it could cost $5,000 a pound. Oudh stores sometimes market a bottle of just 3 grams for $300 or more. They say that per usage only a little oil is required and that one bottle can last a whole year for the average everyday consumer.
Use of Oudh in modern perfumes
Oud has acquired tremendous prominence and recognition in today's field of sophisticated scent formulas. Some well-known designers and Oudh Attar manufacturers have recently introduced their own fragrances using this treasured essential oil. Examples are Oud Royale of Giorgio Armani and Oud Wood of Tom Ford. The advent of shop hotels in the 1980s provided a modern and very opulent atmosphere for travelers, which generated rare and exotic fragrances for people with luxury tastes, whose money is not an item.
Within a scent, Oud is typically a simple touch that continues to linger on the skin even after the others disappear. The basic notes are very rich, strong, and robust as they form the basis of the fragrance (up to six hours and more). They boost the smell of other ingredients; in some cases, they all express their own fragrances. Whilst most wood notes have earthy characteristics, Oud has a lovely sweet smell and is typically synthetic because it's too expensive to choose from.
Benefits of Oudh
This beautiful essential oil has many spiritual, therapeutic, and medical uses. It is often linked with equilibrium, serenity and the elimination of damaging and harmful forces in the household, if administered daily. It is also considered to increase intellectual insight and relieve neurotic and obsessive behavior, a very powerful meditation help.
Both men and women in the Middle East fire wooden Oud chips to smell their homes and clothing. Many Muslims think that their prayers are brought directly to the Creator with the fragrant smoke of Agarwood.
There are also different facets of the scent. It is pungent, but quite appealing, concurrently implying warm, smoky tones with moist wood tinges. Even if subtlety combined with hints of flower and citrus, the main aroma is sensual and masculine. The intricate and sublime Oud scent is a sacred, unusual, fascinating nature gift, which when fused with other essential oils, produces an ocular sensation, impregnating any interior with extravagance, elegance, and ultimate warmth.
