Oud Impressions is devoted the unique sensual delight and sacred significance of Oud oil (also known as agarwood, aloeswood, and gaharu).  From sublimity and reverence to intoxication and ecstasy, Oud oil leaves an everlasting impression on those who encounter its tantalizing aroma. Oud oil is one of the most anciently prized aromatics in the world, especially in the cultures of the Middle East and Asia. As if by its own majesty, Oud oil has already impressed itself in the hearts of generations and the sacred texts of history, and continues to impress itself upon those who newly encounter its rich mystical aroma. Oud Impressions is an artistic endeavor dedicated to the many facets of the Oud experience. This website presently contains an archive of over 45 reviews of artisanal Oud oils from Bangladesh, Borneo, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, and Thailand. New reviews are added from time to time, making Oud Impressions a growing source and textual recording of some of the greatest scents of our time.

In addition to writing about Oud oils, I have begun crafting natural Oud-based (and Oud-inspired) perfumes and attars. These perfumes have been crafted with the intention of creating unique fragrances that dance around the exotic and exalting aroma of Oud oil. My natural perfumes also draw upon the exalting animal fixatives: musk, ambergris, civet, castoreum, and hyraceum. Be sure to check out the Oud Impressions Shop for natural perfumes, rare fragrances, vintage Oud oils, and rare perfumery ingredients!
