Since the dawn of time, Oud has burned over a smouldering flame to release a unique fragrance which is mouldering yet sweet and woody yet balsamic, considered to be one of the fragrances of paradise. A private luxury, Oud is burned in homes for only the most honourable guests during special occasions, offering its sweet aroma to the air, permeating garments, wafting through rooms as a magnificent gift as ethereal as it is unforgettable. After years of research, TWG Tea has conceived an exquisite blend that gives taste to Oud, the most costly fragrance in the world.
