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.
