Oudh is derived from the agarwood tree and was always worn as a single attar or sometimes mixed with a Ta’if rose attar. Ormonde Jayne was the first perfume house to use this exceptionally pungent oil in a fine fragrance. We use both natural Cambodian Oudh in our Elixir series and Nawab of Oudh and synthetic oudh in Ormonde Man. Extraction method: Steam distillation. The wood is chopped into small pieces or even grated, the oils become suspended in the steam. The first drops are the most expensive but every aspect is used and the resin left at the bottom of the cauldron is made into incense pyramids and the dried-out wood is sold in bags.
