If you love frankincense, you’re in for a real
By popular demand and after countless requests, Oud Lubani v2 is finally here!
Place a high quality frankincense tear on top of an ash-covered live coal, and you will have one of the most therapeutic olfactory experiences.
But when it comes to frankincense essential oils or perfumes with frankincense “notes”, you find that its just not the same. Oud Lubani presents just about the most accurate scent that captures the experience of burning a frankincense tear on top of a slice of agarwood.
Three different frankincense products were used in crafting this blend. Frankincense oil provides the bright citrusy top notes, boasting a shimmery vibrant quality. Aged Dhoop (Ayurvedic Indian frankincense) oil is the secret behind the wonderful smokiness (it is the lack of this smokiness that sets typical frankincense-inspired perfumes apart from the real thing). And finally, actual molten frankincense resin was infused into the blend, giving Oud Lubani a three-dimensional quality that fully encompasses every aspect of the frankincense burning experience.
An aged, dark and woody Indian oud anchors the vibrant and zesty frankincense top notes. There are no barnyard notes here; by the time the bright citrusy-balsamic frankincense begins to soften, you only encounter the oud’s rich drydown of sweet golden hay, spices, and creamy woods.
Far from the gloominess of an incense-laden cathedral or the mind-numbing sharpness of straight frankincense essential oil, Oud Lubani boasts the vibrant richness you would only encounter in a lavish sultan’s private quarters.
Note: Since Oud Lubani contains real molten frankincense oleoresin, the scent will vary when used in hot or cold weather. When its warmer, the aroma will be stronger and the frankincense will be more vibrant. When its cooler, the frankincense note will be gentler and the oud will be louder. In both cases though, the aroma is extremely long-lasting (this is arguably the most long-lasting parfum you will ever experience) because the molten frankincense oleoresin acts as an excellent fixative.
The scent was very good almost with a hint of minty
coolness to it. I have some frankincense essential oils which
i acquired for aromatherapy and massage oil blending and i
dare say this perfume is even better than my those pure
If this is not the best smelling frankincense on the planet then I don't know what is. Supposedly this is a black frankincense resin that was melted into oud. It's mind numbingly incredible.
I just got back from a short holiday to Salalah, in time to collect my Oud Lubani delivery. I've gotta say that this frankincense is delicious and is the authentic stuff that Salalah is famous for. Thanks, feels like I'm still on holiday there.

It arrived just 15 minutes ago and I'm already reeling in its scent. This is the best mukhallat you've created since Oud Chypre, in my opinion, and you're really allowed the incense notes to breathe in this one, which makes all the difference. The opening is almost fruity with all the lemony-piney incense and the oud is still there in the background like a woody censer. This is so good I ordered a second bottle.
Ok. Received my little BoJ (bottle of joy) yesterday. Taha, you've done it again. Put some on yesterday afternoon and like you said, I could still smell the frank after this morning's shower. And I don't care -- it smells incredible. Wearing it again today. I'm a happy guy. Thanks!
Been wearing this day after day after day. Can't get enough of that frankincense/sandalwood/oud combo -- good thing I have a 2nd bottle on the way!
This frag is all-natural but because it's both oil- and resin-based, it lasts. And lasts. I put some on late yesterday afternoon; I could still smell the frankincense on my arms after this morning's shower. Usually, I wouldn't want a scent to linger for such a long time, but damn. This stuff's incredible.
I tried Oud Lubani, as soon as I put it on, I immediately remembered your description of theraputic, which is very appropriate. The blending of the different frankincense's is amazing, and I love the journey from citrus to smokiness to creamy woods. This one is very different from your other mukhallats and I love it. Another great addition to the collection!
