From incense to oils to Eau de Parfum, oud is a fragrance that has long been associated with Arabia.

In fact, burning oud - or agarwood - is an old tradition practiced in many homes across the Gulf, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, and you can't walk through most malls or souks without smelling it.

The intensely woody and rich scent oud is used as a gift to social occasions like weddings and engagements and is a symbol of warm hospitality. During Eid, it is customary to burn some and let the fragrance of its smoke fill the house while receiving visitors.
