I want to try this! I LOVE big dark roses and they are so rare! I follow via email Thanks odona Palmer Ward
I think you’ve left this on the wrong days post,
Perfume shops in the Middle East look so opulent! Fascinating story about oud, thanks for posting this.
I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Thank you so much for posting this mini movie, Portia. I have to admit to being “oudh head”, but one that is seriously constrained by a budget.
I LOVE OUDH too. It adds so much of the depth that has been cut through IFRA regulations, albeit in a very different way.
Oud head, Yes!
Ha Ha Ha Jordan, you are a SERIOUS OUDH HEAD!
Michael who writes for APJ recently brought over some of the Oudh big guns. it was an amazing afternoon.
That is a lovely video. I would love to smell the agar wood burning in a censor. And Roja makes me long to smell the 100 year old wood made into an oil.
Super nice to see you. Yes those 100 year old oils would be incredible.
Roja Dove can drag me anywhere, by my hair, call me “Enslaved” (cracking up, even as I write this)
Thank you Portia for sharing this video of eastern traditions being absorbed more now by the west. I do need to investigate and sniff some oud (oudh).
I think the trend will start to fade over the next two or three years. The market is currently flooded. So much choice for oudh sniffing.
Really enjoyed the mini movie on oudh – thanks for posting it. I loved when he said smelling it is “like smelling the wind.” What a beautiful comparison!
He He he, some of the smell like wind from the stable, some like wind from a hospital and some the wind across the desert. Great analogy.
OK. Not QUITE what I was thinking of 😉
He He he. Sorry Kandice. I couldn’t help myself.
