If you follow us on social media, you might have seen that I’ve recently been to Dubai (yep, still talking about it – it had been rescheduled 4 times, so let me off!) and it was everything we had imagined and more. Visited the top of the world’s tallest building? Done! Cocktails at the Armani Hotel? Yep that too. Sipping champers at the swim up bar? Couldn’t say no! Expo2020? We just had to.
Anyway, I sidetrack, one of my most favorite fragrances in the whole world is Oud and it’s been used for centuries in the Middle East, India and South-East Asia. So while on holiday I visited the Perfume Souk and it was everything I wanted it to be, needless to say, I came home with enough Oud perfume to last me (and probably most of the North East!) a lifetime. My most favourite was Rose and Oud, as I found it to be strong and musky but with floral top notes, keeping it light.
As soon as I got home, the search was on to find the perfect oil and I managed to get my mitts on some. I’m certain you’re going to love it just as much as I do.
Aside from it’s gorgeous scent, the benefits of Oud in your home are just amazing. It is often associated with harmony, serenity of spirit and when used regularly, the removal of destructive and negative energies in the home. It’s a highly effective aid for meditation, as it’s also known to enhance mental clarity.
