Oud or agarwood has been used in the production of perfumes and incense since ancient times, but it wasn’t until recently that its popularity skyrocketed in Western cultures. Now, it has become one of the most popular fragrance ingredients out there, especially when it comes to niche perfumes such as those produced by the House of Oud.
The reason behind this increased popularity is that oud doesn’t smell like your average fragrance; in fact, it’s quite an acquired taste that takes some getting used to!
Byredo – Blanche
This perfume is part of Byredo’s collection Arabian Nights which includes fragrances based on stories from One Thousand and One Nights. It was inspired by nights in Cairo in front of her husband’s harem who used Arabian musk oil to scent their skin. Oud is not typically used as a note in women’s perfume; however, Byredo blends it with other aromas to create an intense fragrance that is sensual and intoxicating.
The combination of oud, rosewood, patchouli and amber creates a complex aroma that will have you smelling seductive all day long. The notes are blended so well together that you won’t even notice they are there—the smell just envelopes you.
It also comes in a spray form which makes it easy to apply without being too overpowering. The bottle itself is beautiful and elegant making it great for display when not in use. If you want something different than your typical floral or fruity scent then Blanche by Byredo is worth trying out!
Amouage Interlude Man Scent – Love in Idleness
A fresh blend of oud, sandalwood, rose petals, basil leaves and incense. A clean fragrance that is both soft and bold. This one does not overpower with its heavy use of oud as most other perfumes do. When it dries down, it almost becomes more floral than woody which is an unusual aspect to come from any type of wood scent.
This perfume makes you feel young and beautiful even if you aren’t those things at all! Its intensity adds character to anyone who wears it so definitely make sure you are ready for compliments before applying! Honestly though… how could someone NOT compliment your wonderful new scent?!
Thierry Mugler Scent – A*Men Pure Malt
A*Men Pure Malt is arguably one of Thierry Mugler’s best oud perfumes; with notes of oud, freshness, grapefruit and patchouli. A*Men is sensual, spicy and provocative; it never fails to attract attention when worn. The freshness of grapefruit makes sure it doesn’t feel too heavy but instead refreshing whilst patchouli adds a layer of authenticity which makes it perfect for formal occasions. If you’re looking for an oud perfume that will make you stand out from everyone else then A*Men Pure Malt is a great choice.
