What is an oud fragrance?
Oud (in Arabic oudh) is valued strongly by perfumers for its warm sweetness mixed with woody and balsamic notes. It’s an aromatic and complex scent. It is used in the form of oud oil (dehn al oud) or resin (oud mubakhar). When used in a perfume composition, oud is most often a base note. Essential in every perfume, unlike top notes and middle notes, base notes tend to stay on the skin long after the others dissipate.
