KUNUZ – Arabic for treasures is a loving marriage of the finest crafting of incense in accordance with the classical Emirati tradition.
In the Khaleej (Gulf) a wonderfully scented home is the pride of the woman of the house, an accolade of her skills, success and finesse, and a chapter in the narrative of her rich tradition.
Secret formulae of Bakhoor are hushedly passed down from mother to daughter, from generation to generation. Crafting the Bakhoor is a joyous event – a gathering of wizened elders, the joyous sounds of laughter, the rhythmic celebratory hum of the Duff (drum) and an assembly of the women – each one creating their own unique scents, scripting tales too complex to be conveyed by mere words.
These formulae utilise the best and rarest of ingredients with no expenses spared, these ingredients are not just a means to an end but the cream of the crop; built on 100+ year old Indian Sandalwood, Vietnamese, Sri Lankan and Hindi Oudh, Zargol Saffron, Frankincense from Oman, Rose from beloved Ta’if – and a twist with the combination of Palo Santo.
Layering of scents is a deep part of the Arabian culture, applying some oudh, then scent with piece of oudh on the heater, and finishing off with a sprinkle of KUNUZ, whether you use incense for your own pleasure or welcoming guests, KUNUZ will ensure you stand tall with elegance and prestige leaving behind you a luscious trail of scent; filling your surroundings with most welcoming and inviting aroma that carries the tales of generations.
The fragrance of middle eastern royalty, natural, niche and luxury.
When used in a perfume composition, Oud is most often a base note, which tends to remain on the skin long after the others dissipate. Since they form the perfume’s foundation, base notes are very rich, heavy and long-lasting (up to six hours and more). They serve to enhance the scent of other ingredients; and, in some cases, they impart a fragrance all their own. While most wood notes are known for their earthy qualities, Oud provides a pleasant sweet scent and is often featured in a synthetic version because it is so costly to harvest.
