Where Artistry Meets Oud
Welcome to Lux Oud where we invite you to immerse yourself in the intoxicating world of exquisite oud perfume.
Our journey began with a passion for precious oud, a mystical resin derived from the heartwood of agarwood trees. It led us to the lush Cambodian forests where we personally source this rarest of resins direct from the suppliers that harvest and distil it.
Our perfumers are true artists, blending oud with a harmony of natural essences, botanicals and aromatic treasures from around the world.
From our single-origin pure oud oils to our signature oud perfume oil blends, we’ve created a fragrance collection that celebrates the sensual intensity of this liquid Cambodian gold, without alcohol or synthetic additives.
We believe that fragrance is an essential part of personal expression. We invite you to apply Lux Oud directly to your pulse points to release its heavenly notes, or layer with your favourite fragrance to tell your own unique olfactory story.
Whether you seek a signature oud perfume to adorn your daily ritual or a memorable gift for a loved one, our artisanal oud perfume oil miniatures will transport you to a world of indulgence and refinement.
Thank you for being part of the Lux Oud community and we look forward to sharing the allure of oud with you, one aromatic drop at a time.
2018 - JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF THE BRAND
Our fascination with oud, coupled with a strong desire to source directly, took the Lux Oud team to a Trat Plantation in Cambodia, the home of the Agarwood. During this trip, we were privileged to witness the entire process involved in the ancient art of creating oud – from its cultivation and extraction, through to production. This gave us an invaluable insight into the history of oud, how it was discovered by chance, and its development into one of today’s must have fragrances – a not so well-known story.
Oud is formed in the heart of the Agarwood tree, the very same trees that were used by soldiers during war as a means of protection from the enemy whose bullets would penetrate the Agarwood’s surface, creating holes. As people returned to visit the same forests over the years, they noticed the bullet holes on the trees had matured, producing a rich, dark aromatic resin with a distinctive aroma/scent/smell. It is this dark resin representing the infected areas of the tree, which are referred to as agar/aloes. This darker resin differs significantly from the naturally occurring resin one might see from a tree, which is typically light with a pale hue.
The aromatic qualities of the resin formed during this process can be affected by the species of wood, location and origin of the root and the key factor, which is the maturation period and quality of the infection.
Prachin Oud regarded as a prestigious pure Oud oil, is extracted at source from the Agarwood trees in Thailand to produce an unmistakably rich, spicy aroma at its start, settling into a sweet, woody fragrance.
