If you love frankincense, you’re in
for a real treat.
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.
This rendition of Oud Lubani mimics the following experience: Two slivers of agarwood, one Malay Malaccensis and one Myanma Agallocha, placed on top of a live coal. One agarwood sliver topped with Omani black frankincense, and the other topped with Omani green frankincense.
Three different species of frankincense were used in crafting this blend. Moreover, three different forms of frankincense were utilized: essential oils, liquified oleoresin, and tinctures.
Omani frankincense oils provide 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). Super potent tinctures give the perfume a rich backdrop. And finally, actual liquified frankincense resin was infused into the blend, giving Oud Lubani a three-dimensional quality that fully encompasses every aspect of the frankincense burning experience.
Rugged woody oud oils anchor 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 encounter the oud’s rich drydown of bubbling resin, sweet spices, and creamy wood singing alongside the balsamic citrusy frankincense chords.
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.
Man i really enjoy the oud
thats in Oud Loubani. Actually a big fan of loubani
I’m loving oud lubani.
Is it possible to include another bottle of Oud Lubani with my order? After wearing Oud Lubani again, I like that one a lot too and would like another bottle.
Easy review here. Fantastic Frankincense three varieties including Black. Never tried it but I love what's in here. It has smoky flare and best of all is drenched with oud from top to bottom. If you love burning the two this is a must check out it wears close to the burning incense without inhaling the smoke.
Beautiful blending and again the oud is exquisite . Best frankincense perfume I own already and that's from one wearing . Will try another tonight and will enjoy experiencing the other three over the coming days . Very special work.!
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 extracts.
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!
