Scent of Heaven

Flourishing Wild Oudh trees under the dense canopies of tropical jungles, maturing for decades free of human intervention to become olfactory delights.

This sacred wood is more valuable than gold – not just in material value but in the marvelous upliftment it provides to the connoisseur.

For centuries Oudh has traversed lengthy terrains from India and South East Asia across jungles, mountains and deserts to reach the glorious burning Mabkhara (scent burner) in our private Majaalis (Gatherings). As per this ancient tradition, today we bring you Wild Oudh Wood and Wild Oudh Oils as we seek the finest Oudh available for you.

It has been narrated from ‘Abdullah the son of Umar (may Allāh be pleased with them both):

كَانَ اِبْن عُمَر إِذَا اِسْتَجْمَرَ اِسْتَجْمَرَ بِالْأَلُوَّةِ غَيْر مُطَرَّاة أَوْ بِكَافُورٍ يَطْرَحهُ مَعَ الْأَلُوَّة ثُمَّ قَالَ: هَكَذَا كَانَ يَسْتَجْمِر رَسُول اللهِ صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ

When Ibn Umar applied the burning scent, he did so with pure aloes wood, or with camphor mixed with aloes wood. Then he would say,‘This is how the Messenger of Allāh Peace and blessing of Allāh be upon him applied the burning scents.’ (Muslim).

Oudh is shared in many traditions; it was used by the Ancient Egyptians for embalming the dead bodies of the elite, in Buddhism Oudh has been used for centuries to make precious strings of beads, 108 in total. In the Bible it is referenced in 5 different places.

Today you can ask any Oudh lover what is it about Oudh that captivates them? The answer will always be “it is best experienced and then spoken about”.
