Talking Notes: Celebrating the Musky Scent of Oud
One of the most expensive perfume ingredients in the world, Oud or Oudh (Arabic name) comes from the Agar tree wood. Found in India’s Assam, Bangladesh, and a few other parts of Southeast Asia, it is procured when the wood comes in contact with a certain parasite. The contact results in a dark, fragrant resin that is oud a.k.a agarwood. This resin exudes a warm, earthy, and intense scent, and is mostly used as the base note in men’s fragrances.
