What is Oudh?

Oudh, also known as oud, is a resinous wood from the Aquilaria tree, found mainly in Southeast Asia. When this tree gets infected by a certain mold, it produces a dark, fragrant resin to protect itself. This resin-soaked wood is what gives oudh its distinct aroma.

Why is Oudh Special?

Rare and Precious:

Only a few trees produce this resin, making oudh one of the most expensive ingredients in the perfumery world.

Unique Scent:

Oudh offers a rich and complex scent. It’s often described as warm, woody, and slightly sweet, with hints of damp wood but to some people it can be challenging as it also can smell animalic.


Oudh has a long-lasting aroma, making it a favorite for perfumes that offer a an outstanding performance.

Oudh in Perfumes

Oud acts as a base note in fragrances, grounding other ingredients and providing depth. When mixed with other scents, oudh can add a layer of luxury, mystery, and warmth.

Fall Into Stars:

From the house of StrangeLove, Fall Into Stars is one of the fanciest when it comes to Oudh fragrances. It is loaded with the precious wood and it has also notes of yellow florals, pepper and vanilla. This is a perfume for people who are daring and wants to leave a statement wherever they go.
