Oud Perfumes

Oud perfumes are fragrances that are centered around the note of oud, a resinous substance that is harvested from the heartwood of the agarwood tree. Oud has a rich and complex scent that is often described as woody, spicy, and musky, with hints of leather and balsam. It is a highly prized ingredient in the world of perfumery, as it is rare and expensive.

Oud perfumes come in a wide range of styles, from light and fresh to rich and intense. Some oud perfumes feature additional notes such as saffron, rose, and patchouli to create a more complex and nuanced fragrance. Oud is often used in unisex and masculine perfumes, although there are also oud-based fragrances that are marketed to women.

Oud is a popular note in Middle Eastern and Indian perfumery, where it has been used for centuries. However, it has gained popularity in the West in recent years, and many high-end fragrance brands now offer oud-based perfumes. Some popular oud perfumes include Oud Wood by Tom Ford, Royal Oud by Creed, and Oud Satin Mood by Maison Francis Kurkdjian.
