Arabic perfumes have a specific, sultry and exotic scent that makes them unique and immediately recognizable.
Of all middle eastern scents, the most famous, and most widespread scent is oud. Oud is a woody aroma that can be found all over the Arab world from Turkmenistan to Mozambique.
What is oud and why is the scent used by perfumers?
Oud (in Arabic oudh) is often used in perfumes because its scent combines warm sweetness with woody notes and balsamic notes. It’s a strong and complex scent either used through oud oil (dehn al oud) or through resin (oud mubakhar). When used in a perfume, oud is generally the base note. Base notes are essential in every perfume and unlike middle notes, they tend to stay on the skin long after the other notes dissipate.
