Arabian Oud

Another Scents of Paradise from SuChi

Our Arabian Oud is sourced from high quality Agarwood or "Gaharu". Blended with notes from nature, it gives this premium perfume an exotic and distinctive persona that lasts throughout the day. 

WHAT IS AGARWOOD?

The Aquilaria Agallocha tree, the most important source of Agarwood (or Gaharu as it is commonly known in Asia), grows in subtropical forests in Southeast Asia. Agarwood resin ia a major source of one of the most expensive and desirable perfume ingredients in the world. The scent is reminiscent of vetiver and sandalwood and is extremely long-lasting and has been used for centuries in India, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.

Wood chips off the trees are often burned as incense, and it’s common for them to be used during religious ceremonies and various celebrations throughout Southeast Asia and the Middle East, including China, Japan, and India.

The healthy wood of Aquilaria Agallocha trees is white, soft and without scented resins. When the wood gets infected with a parasitic mold called Phialophora parasitica, it reacts by producing a precious, dark, and fragrant resin. It is important to note that the infected tree must be at least 50 years old to produce the oil. This is the perfume ingredient oud, which is also called agarwood, oudh, gaharu, agalocha, aloeswood, or eaglewood. Agarwood is a rarity on many fronts. Because the resin is only triggered by the mold, it’s estimated that a total of 2 percent of these trees produce it. Not only does this raise the price of the oil, the wood is also one of the most expensive on the market. Additionally, many of these trees are now threatened species.

Why The Scents of Paradise ARE SO WELL SOUGHT AFTER

Relive the Sunnah

Madinah

Abu Ayyub reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There are four traditions of the Messengers: Modesty, wearing fragrance, using the toothstick, and marriage.”

Hadith Sunan al-Tirmidhī

Suitable for Prayers

Arabian Oud can be used for prayers. Fataawa from many Halal authorities all over the Muslim world such as JAKIM and MUI indicate that alcohol used in perfumes is not considered as impurities (najis). The use of such perfumes will not nullify one's prayers. 

Therapeutic

Agarwood has been prescribed in Asian traditional medicine to promote one's well-being such as alleviating skin diseases and rheumatism.

Ayesha reports: “The Oud was the best type of perfume the Prophet loved.” (Related by Abu Al-Shaykh and Ibn Saad.)

People realized that the Prophet loved a good smell. Therefore, they often offered him a touch of perfume, and he would accept it willingly. Anas reports: “The Prophet never declined to have a touch of perfume offered to him.” (Related by Ahmad, Al-Bukhari, Al-Nassaie, Abu Dawood and Al-Tirmidhi.)

This Hadith suggests that accepting any perfume offered was a habit of the Prophet. This is clearly confirmed by a Hadith in which Ayesha reports: “The Prophet disliked to go out to meet his companions without wearing some perfume. He would have a touch of perfume toward the end of the night.” (Related by Abu Al-Shaykh.) Needless to say, Ayesha is referring to the time of dawn when the Prophet went out to the mosque to offer Fajr prayer.
He was keen that he should have a pleasant smell, always wearing perfume. It is a good practice to follow that we should wear some perfume before going out in the morning, whether to prayer or when we go to work.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF AGARWOOD

Treatment with The Indian Incense - 'Oud Al Hind by [Ref] Vivian bint Joan Taylor

Narrated Um Qais: I went to Allah's Apostlet[salAllahu alayhe wassallam] along with a a son of mine whose palate and tonsils I had pressed with my finger as a treatment for a (throat and tonsil) disease. The Prophet said, "Why do you pain your children by pressing their throats! Use Oud Al-Hindi (certain Indian incense) for it cures seven diseases, one of which is pleurisy (sharp chest pain that worsens when breathing). It is used as a snuff for treating throat and tonsil disease and it is inserted into one side of the mouth of one suffering from pleurisy."
(Sahih Bukhari. Book #71, Hadith #611)

This prescription was given more than fourteen hundred years ago before aromatherapy was even considered an area of alternative medicine. Most of us are familiar with the perfume 'Oud and the wood incense 'Oud. However, very few of us actually use these two items for other than basic perfumery.

While this oil is extremely rare and costly, it can also be extremely beneficial. There is some belief that 'oud oil may be useful in treating lymph system disorders, high blood pressure and as an antimalarial treatment due to its chemical composition and components. Further research is required into the possible healing properties of this unique oil and to determine its uses in the "seven diseases" mentioned by the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wa sallam.

Due to its widespread uses in Arabia, the prices for 1 kg. of 'oud in the form of oil or wood have risen as high as $10,000.00. As Muslims we have an obligation to follow the teachings of the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wa sallam, and his sunnah. But that must be in all aspects of his sunnah including the obligation to protect the environment. If we are not using 'oud as prescribed by Allah's Messenger, perhaps we should restrain from its use only in perfumery. It is quite possible that this oil may have great medical benefits, but if there are no trees available then we may never know.
