    Spaz Whats this Oud About?

    Hi Everyone. I've been a lurker since inception of the forum and finally signed up. I've been collecting oils and wood for some years, and tend wear and burn them rather than seeing them as investments. Most days I oud up for the day at work, and burn a little sliver with my morning coffee. I like Oud :)

    Hi Ouddcit. :)
    I'm a virgin nose that never had a chance to smell oud before. I've recently found about ouds.
    though it might be a mistake to step into this slippery slope, I'd like to give it a try.:D
    I'm looking forward to experiencing 'THE OUD' that people talking about. there's so much history, story, legends around it.
    it makes me a little bit anxious and exciting at the same time.

    I've ordered my first oud wood from Azman Oudh last night. I'll let you guys know my first impression when I got it :)
    if there's any suggestion, let me know

    When heating the agarwood, try different levels of heat. Start at lower temperatures, just enough to bring about the aroma, then gradually move up.

    Hi all, I’d like to introduce myself as a newbie on this wonderful forum. I run my own company - OudBase Perfumery - and I am now a resident artisan. If you want to put a name to the face, I’m the guy interviewing Ouddict - take a look at the “About the Ouddict Community” section.

    I look forward to getting to know you all more!

    Agreed. People get so programmed by television and brands and mainstream pop culture that they become kind of blinded to the beauty of reality. I have found some people (parents of my child’s friend) who are entranced and intrigued by the beauty of good incense, good oud. It’s a wonderful thing to find - I have given them so many samples of woods and resins and oils and such though that it is starting to embarrass them, as they are scent noobs and just getting interested now, don’t have anything to offer. I keep telling them about the generosity of members of this forum and basenotes, and not to worry. I really do enjoy my collection more when sharing it with these people.

    Sayed Harris Whats this Oud About?

    Hello Fellow Scent Saints

    My name is Sayed Harris. I live in The United Arab Emirates. I have been around oud for quite sometime. I'm not a perfumer although I have some mixes that I formulate in my spare time. One of the hobbies I maintain is to keep in touch with Agarwood and oud - wild and plantations woods alike and I have some in my collection.

    Its great to see all of you here and the diversity of knowledge on scents shared is so profound. Very delighted to be amongst so many artisans and scent lovers. I will be closely following many of the informations shared here to educate myself and pass the knowledge as and when required.

    Thank you all
