Forget the eyes. We’re letting you in on a little secret: the true window to your soul is actually… your signature fragrance.
American comedian Mindy Kaling absolutely nailed it when she said that, if she ever were to create an app, she would make a “Shazaam for perfumes”.
Truer words were never spoken, Mindy – aren’t we all on a quest to define our own signature scent?
If the perfume industry generously set an Open Day for the public when you could find out exactly what’s in the perfumes that they’re selling (like that’s ever going to happen…), you’d probably be amazed to find an array of synthetic fragrances and compounds not normally found in nature, plus a few blending agents and fixatives added to maintain the scent over longer periods of time – for the lower cost of development.
That ingredient list would more or less resemble the Periodic Table of Elements and would bring you memories of those dragging Chemistry Classes – not a great help if you’re on a mission to find that perfect, The One, Yours-Only fragrance.
However, we at Oudh Australia are much more relaxed than that: we decided to share our traditional fragrance recipes and to offer you an exclusive sneak peek into our secret blends of exotic, high-quality ingredients.
We know our strength lies in the organic, natural elements mixed in our perfumes, so read below, enter the magical, alluring world of Oudh fragrances and find out what’s the Oudh fragrance that’s the perfect fit for you.
Bonus point: find out why everybody loves Oudh and why they’re so good for your wellness and health!
Oudh Attar Essential Oil: the precious core of our Oudh fragrances.
Our story starts from one single precious and very hard to get essential oil: Oudh Attar. You could call it our Holy Grail – or our Mother Ship, if you’re the geeky type. Incredibly rare and difficult to yield, Oudh Essential Oil is harvested from the heartwood of certain Agar Trees, originally only in the Assam region of India.
When infected with a particular fungus, a very small percent of Agar Trees will produce a dark, aromatic, tar-like resin as part of their natural defense mechanism against this infection.
This rare, precious resin will fill the heart of the wood with an unique, powerful and exotic fragrance – a fragrance which has been transformed by perfumers, for centuries, in the Oudh essential oil.
This phenomenon is rarely occurring – it is said that for every ten trees in the wild, only one will have its heartwood producing this precious resin, so talk about slim chances to get your hands on that oil!
It’s no wonder that the Oudh Essential Oil is valued at one and a half times greater than gold and it is the most expensive fragrance wood known to mankind – you see now why it has been called, for centuries, “liquid gold”.
With its bitter-sweet, warm, woody and creamy notes and its earthy, leather character, Oudh Essential Oil calms the body, removes negative energies, reduces fear and invokes a feeling of vigor and harmony.
Moreover, Oudh Essential Oil is highly effective for meditation, relaxation and it’s a known tonic and aphrodisiac.
After 2 years of research and experimentation, we have manually blended the exotic Oudh Essential Oil with some of Mother Nature’s best organic fragrances, to bring you an exclusive, limited release of 5 perfumes – each of them with a unique blend and an array of positive effects for your mind and body.
1. Oudh Musk: Romantic, Mysterious, Oriental.

Health and wellness properties. Oudh Musk is one of our fragrances that targets the relaxation and wellness of the mind.
Just a few drops on your wrists, neck and behind your ears and you will immediately notice a calming, pleasant effect, mostly due to the organic Sandalwood Oil, an essential oil widely known for its aroma and amazing medicinal properties.
The Sandalwood Oil blends like a charm with Rose Oil, a natural antidepressant and aphrodisiac, while the Organic Musk makes the entire combination long lasting, as usually musk slowly releases its smell as it receives more body heat.
