are two main reasons for wearing oud:
for one’s personal
enjoyment, and for others.
absolute delight studying the
evolution of the complex smell of
oud on your skin for hours, for your own enjoyment. Many varieties of
oud evoke olfactory memories, and it can be fun identifying them as the
oil develops on your skin..
one’s personal enjoyment, it is recommended to apply the oil
to one’s outer forearm, 2 – 3 inches above the
wrist. Even the tiniest amount will be
sufficient. This is then gently dabbed below the jaw line.

that even this tiny amount you
apply can scent the entire room you are in.
is important that you do not rub too hard.
There should be a
remaining on your arm, after applying to the neck. Your skin is highly
absorbent, so rubbing will make the oil (and the scent)
disappear much faster. It can also damage the scent molecules.
your skin will also
ensure that the smell lasts longer.
the ultimate ‘broadcasting’ effect, there are two
ways to use the oil:
Applying to your clothes, bracelet, or other item: This will give you
the longest lasting smell as the oil will not be absorbed by the skin.
For clothes, it is best to apply a bit to the shoulders, and some to
the chest and back of your shirt.
Applying to the skin: while this will not last nearly as long, in most
cases the smell will be much more appealing due to the unique chemistry
between the skin and oud. Apply the oil just below your outer wrist,
then dab (not rub) it onto your neck. Once again, remember to keep a sheen
remaining so don’t rub too hard!
1 – 2 light swipes of the dip stick should be used if you
want to share the beautiful smell of oud with those around you.
forget that others might not be accustomed to the smell of oud like
you! So do not over apply, even if you yourself can not detect too
strong a smell. Remember that one’s own nose gets quickly
accustomed to the scent due toolfactory fatigue. It’s usually
a good idea after applying oud, that you wait about 15 minutes before
ouds have different scent lives, and different chemistries with the
skin. You may find, for example, that you like your Indian oud best
applied to the skin, while you like to have your Malaysian oud scenting
all a matter of taste, and a matter of testing to see which end results
you like the most. Go to our product
