  • Middle East fragrance traditions and popular scents you should know about

    With a strong culture about perfumes, Arabic or Middle East traditions have played a significant role in the overall development of European perfumery. Resins, spices, animal essentials, herbs, and exotic wood oils as musk or ambergris are some of the essential raw materials that Arabic fragrances have traditionally utilized towards creating enchanting scents. At the same time, flowers like jasmine, orange, or rose blossoms are and have been consistently used in Arabia or Middle East perfumes. An Insight into the Use of Scents in the Middle East The Islamic culture is known to have used perfumery with deep connections to the religion and its beliefs. The first-ever use of perfumery was recorded way back in the VI century. Most families in the Arabian region used to prepare something known as ‘Bakhoor.’ It was a type of incense that was used for purifying homes and surroundings. Every Arabian family typically used to have their own scent or fragrance of Bakhoor. It is because families used to mix ingredients like sugar, musk, amber, and so more to produce the scent. They made use of the ingredients to prepare a paste that was dried under sunlight. This resulted into the formation of a dried block. The block was eventually divided into smaller pieces. Then, these pieces were burned. It resulted in the production of a fume that was responsible for perfuming the entire room or area. Middle East Fragrances -An Olfactory Experience Like Never Before The perfumes of the Middle East are immensely appealing, alluring, and mysterious. The scenario presents an aromatic panorama of potent woody, smoky, floral, and sensual elements. These fragrances have become immensely popular due to the advent of modern perfumes who have been successful in capturing the exquisite essence of the Middle East fragrances while presenting a highly dynamic and sophisticated consumer base.

The use of perfumes has been associated with attracting the attention of the holy spirits and repelling the evil ones. It is omnipresent in the Arabic community and deeply embedded in society, history, religion, and even daily customs. Middle East Scents and Its Culture The Emiratis -along with other neighbors in the Persian Gulf including Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, and Saudi Arabia, are regarded as some of the most extravagant spenders per capita on luxury perfume in the world. It is estimated that they keep purchasing a bottle of luxury perfume almost every two months. This is in comparison to an average Westerner who spends on perfumes only every six months. For both women and men of the Arab World, the application of high-end scents appears to be ritualistic. Therefore, it involves the layering of different oils -including jasmine, Oud, rose, or musk. They even go ahead with infusing hair and clothing with smoke out of incense-like concoction known as ‘Bakhoor.’ It is prepared with the help of wooden chips soaked in perfume-based oil while mixing the same with other ingredients like sandalwood. All the elements are effectively combined before being sprayed in the form of perfumes. The process of layering tends to be complex as well as artistic as it involves ample experience and precise skills. Blending different scents like spiced, woody, or floral might not get along with each other upon being bottled. However, ultimately, they turn out to be delightfully fragrant when the scents are layered on top of one another. Use of Scents by the Arabic Population in the Middle East For a majority of Arabic population, fragrant oils are also applied on the skin of children to ensure protection against bakhoor burns and sunburns on a daily basis. The formulae for these essential oils are passed down through generations. In the Arabian culture, fragrance is also associated with a divine dining experience. In most homes and families, right after a meal, guests are mostly presented with a tray of fragrance to try out as a sample. While Westerners are known to love divine perfume formulations while considering it as one of the secondary or tertiary fashion accessories, in the Middle East nations, fragrance is regarded as almost something sacred. For instance, in Dubai, fragrance is regarded as the ultimate form of self-expression. Therefore, women here keep changing their perfumes quite often -similar to the way women in the West change their outfits. Additionally, the codification of perfumes is perceived distinctively here. While attitudes keep changing, western fragrances for most part tend to be gender-specific. The Arabic culture continues doing away with these cultural disparities. Still, the concept of equality of women in this part of the world is still a major issue. Despite the fact, women & men continue wearing same fragrances. Perfume is highly renowned in the Islamic religion. Therefore, it is specified across several instances are sacred in the scriptures of the Holy Quran. The Advent of the Attar in the Middle East In the West, a majority of perfumes are made out of alcohol. Alcohol is strictly prohibited amongst the Muslims and people of the Middle East.

The combination of different oils and essential ingredients is referred to as the Attar. Attar serves to be a unique way to experience fragrance altogether. It is because of the unique composition that is enhanced with the use of exclusive ingredients like musk, amber, and rose.

Also referred to as Agarwood or Wood Resin, this ingredient in the fragrance industry has been in existence for thousands of years across different cultures of the world. Oud has been successful in making a quick addition to the world of scents. Oud serves to be a highly luxurious and valued scent. As a matter of fact, it is considered as a delightful experience for many. This is why you will come across multiple variations of the Oud scent in the perfumery industry. However, what exactly is Oud? Why is it so special? Let us help you understand the meaning and importance of Oud and the reason behind its expensive tag. What is Oud? Oud or Oudh is referred to as the ‘5 thousand dollar per pound fragrance.’ It is by far one of the most expensive fragrances or perfume ingredients in the world. Also going by the name as Agarwood, the essential oil of Oudh is extracted out of the resinous heartwood of the Agar tree that has been infected by a type of fungus. Agar tree is primarily found in the forests of Bangladesh, India, and Southeast Asia. The extract or oil out of the Agar tree is extracted through the process of melting the resin or distilling from the wood. As per a popular belief, it is said that out of every 10 trees in the wild, only of them has a chance of getting infected in the heartwood. Industry experts or perfume specialists from all around the world seek older trees in the forest as they feature unparalleled richness in terms of the aroma of the resin. However, a number of older trees of the given species are regarded as threatened species. As the resin gets triggered by the infection of the fungus or creation of the mold, it is estimated that only around 2 percent of the Agar trees are responsible for producing the unique resin. This fact has contributed to the overall status of Oudh as one of the most expensive commodities in the market of essential oils or perfumery. What is the Value of Oud Essential Oils? According to a study report, it is estimated that the annual market of Oud shines at around $6 billion. The overall value of Oudh has been estimated to be around 1/3 times that of gold. Due to these reasons, the Oudh extract is also referred to as the ‘liquid gold.’ According to a report by Forbes, it is estimated that the extract or Oud essential oil can cost around $5,000 for every pound. In most cases, Oudh retailers out there sell a bottle of just 3 grams at around $300 or even more. According to the retailers, only a little amount of oil or extract is needed for every application. Therefore, it is expected that a single bottle should last almost an entire year for an average user. The fragrance of Oudh comprises multiple components and experiences. It could be simultaneously pungent, yet quite pleasing at the same time. The fragrance is also capable of evoking smoky, warm notes with slight variations of dampened wood. While you can experience subtlety blended with instances of fruity and floral at the same time, the predominant fragrance of Oudh is sensual and musky throughout. The exquisite and complex fragrance of Oudh serves to be a rare, precious, and intriguing gift to the nature.
