Oud, Turmeric and Saffron

  • $4.10

Oud, Turmeric and Saffron! This one came about because I have been getting asked for Oud.  Until about two years ago I had not idea what the heck Oud even was. Oud.  Oud.  It is fun to say.  Try it!  I was intrigued.  Who wouldn't be with that name.  So I started checking out the resin.  Ouch, it sure isn't cheap!  In my search for creating the perfect Oud I did a lot of research and learned that Oud actually comes from Agarwood that is infected with a certain type of mold which produces a resin.  Sounds disgusting but it is wonderful. The resin is very aromatic.  Without the mold the wood doesn't have a smell.  Pretty nifty!  And can you believe that mold make this wood worth more than gold!  Crazy!   I fell in love with the smell of Oud.  It is a very "masculine" scent.  Very deep and rich and woody.  I really love the touches of spice that the Turmeric and Saffron add to the dark woody notes.  It makes it lighter without adding sweetness.  Just mesmerizing!!!
