Middle Eastern in origin, Oud (also known as Agarwood) is the resinous wood of a particular species of tree caused due to an infection. It has been used over thousands of years, mostly in traditional perfumes and as incense. Oud also pairs very well with spicy and fruity fragrances to create a powerfully masculine fragrance. This too is suitable for special occasions when one is trying to woo a romantic partner.
Do check that the perfume you buy is made of real Oud oil instead of synthetic ingredients since there will be a marked difference in quality. Any perfume containing this ingredient will have a powerful aroma that takes a long time to develop when it comes in touch with your skin and you should therefore avoid using it in large quantities at one go. All in all, an Oud perfume is a very good buy because of its masculine nature.
