    Perfume shops in the Middle East look so opulent! Fascinating story about oud, thanks for posting this.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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!
