Oud: The Mystic of Agarwood

Oud: The Mystic of Agarwood

Oud, also known as Agarwood in Arabic, is a rare and highly prized dark wood sourced from Southeast Asia. Its distinct scent comes from the natural fungal resin within the tree, giving off a resilient, animalistic, and smoky aroma that has gained a mystical and almost cult-like following across the Middle East. Used in perfumes and incense, Oud sets the stage for spiritual and religious experiences, as scent has long been intertwined with the divine.

Serving as a pathway to moments of relief from our daily routines, scent allows our minds to transcend beyond physical boundaries. Universally loved by cultures spanning generations, Oud is like the truffle of the fragrance world—not just for its rarity and cost, but for its magnetic and ever-evolving scent profile that defies easy description.

Floris has masterfully incorporated this rare and luxurious element into two remarkable fragrances: Honey Oud and Leather Oud. The captivating essence of Oud takes center stage, harmoniously blending with the delicate, floral sweetness of English honey and the robust, earthy aroma of leather. These contrasting elements intertwine seamlessly, united by the seductive, alluring, and enigmatic allure of Oud fragrance.

Leather Oud

The perfumery team at Floris embraced the opportunity to work with this intoxicating ingredient to create a scent that is opulent and deep in character, set upon a warming amber and vetiver base, to create a long-lasting scent profile.

Leather is associated with military, hard work and physical prowess, essentially masculine at its core, plays the leading role in fragrance, followed by a warming heart of oud & patchouli, with a touch of geranium, and clove scented carnation, placed upon an oud base for added depth.

Honey Oud

Honey Oud takes inspiration from Baklava, an intricate Middle Eastern dessert delicately made with layers of pastry infused with honey and vanilla. This gourmand scent is layered with English honey upon vanilla base, traditionally the finest pods hail from the Comoro islands, that neighbour Madagascar. Combined, they accentuate the subtle rose at the heart of this complex fragrance, which is the perfect balance of sweet honey and robust oud.
