    Artisans turn Oud from a commodity into something more... an expression of their taste and philosophy. They turn it into art and charge prices to match.

    Hmmmm... I don't know any artisan who has planted any seeds... they would have a LONG wait for that Oud to come through, if at all. 40-50 years?

    You dont know for shure because you are too young but there was obligatory someone who planted some seed to get the trees of nowadays. for organic oud of course. For wild, artisanal work begin at the harvesting of the tree.

    A well made oil is a work of art, but I don't want an abstract extract 😄

    IMO the final products determines who is a true artist. Just as a true artist who uses paint and canvas can produce pictures of beautiful scenes over and over again, the true oud artisan will produce oil after oil that tantalize the olfactory senses. I suppose any distiller can luck out and produce a good oil every once in a while, but the true artisan will almost every time produce something exceptional with the materials he is using.
