The tantalising waft of rich fried foods. The aroma of pungent herbs and unctuous soups mingling together with the rich warmth of saffron and cardamom-laden sweets. The earthy brittle scent of pistachio twining against sparklingly-sugary rose. Balmy meditative nights rife with the drifting scent of Bakhoor merging with the unabashed fragrance of liberal swipes of Oudh Oil– Ramadhan truly is ‘The Scented Month.’
Many of us enjoy a variety of oils and attars but few of us have experienced the enjoyment that is synonymous with heating fragrant matter. Our campaign ‘The Scented Month’ was with the vision to encourage all our customers to actively burn aromatic material to experience a unique dimension of scent during this blessed month.
The aim of the campaign ‘The Scented Month’ is to make accessible to all the wondrous world of burning and heating scented materials. The pleasures of heating woods and resins is on many levels: from creating a beautiful and calming ambience, be it for worship, meditation or leisure to scenting ones skin, hair and clothing. Whilst the scents of oils and sprays last some hours, the smell of scented smoke on clothes can lasts for days and weeks.
With this in mind we have created these wonderful fragrant quartets; a beautiful compilation of 4 distinct scents characteristic of the month of Ramadhan; Frankincense, Sandalwood, Brunei Oudh & Khaleeji Bakhoor cubes for you to enjoy at your leisure in the coming Ramadhan nights.
1. ROYAL DHIKR: From the renowned Hujary Frankincense ‘Dhikr’ is the crown of frankincense according to the Omanis themselves. Collected from the oldest of trees and hand-sorted by the harvesters themselves the Dhikr Hujary are not collected based upon colour, the focus is purely on scent. Dhikr in Arabic means ‘remembrance’– in Islamic reference it refers to the remembrance of Allah. As the best of scents and fragrances are offered at the time of Dhikr the Omani’s named this frankincense Dhikr as they regard this to have the best scent profile of the Frankincense family and one to be utilised during Ramadhan when the night prayers are performed.
2.INDIAN SANDALWOOD: 100+ year old pieces of Indian Sandalwood, these woods are even fragrant at room temperature. Whilst these are not from Mysore the scent profile and fragrant pleasure it offers is incredibly satisfying and calming. These are not off cuts or waste – they were specifically hand-chiselled from larger blocks by Al Shareef for ‘The Scented Month’ collection.
