Description

Made with natural ingredients and essential oils*.

Our Oud Fragrance Oil has been specially formulated to release an intoxicating musky scent normally derived from wood resin of the tropical Agar tree. One of the most expensive and sought after fragrances in the world, used in many religious ceremonies in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, China, Japan and India. This intriguing fragrance opens with citrus, juniper berries, blackcurrent, plum and cherry with hints of pine leading into a heart of rose, jasmin and ylang supported by warming spices resting on an intense base of precious wood, oudh, patchouli, amber and musk.

Oud comes from the wood of the tropical Agar (Aquilaria) tree, a genus that includes 15 different species. The tree is believed to have originated in the Assam region of India, from there spreading to populate Bangladesh and much of Southeast Asia. This unique fragrance is actually create when an Agar tree becomes infected with a parasitic fungus. It is the trees response to this fungus that produces this highly fragrant oil and is therefore extremely rare, with only an estimated 2% of all Agar trees producing the resin.

Our Oud fragrance oil is a unique and rich blend that will fill your room with the exotic and transport you in a way that only scent can.

All our fragrance oils are exclusive to Cosy Owl and have been developed by our experts for superior scent throw in a candle and have been optimised to use with our wax. Our oils are 100% concentrated and are fully compatible for use with all our waxes.

How much fragrance should I add?

All our fragrances are high quality and specifically designed for excellent scent throw, meaning that generally speaking less is more. How much to add is slightly complex and we have developed a guide to give you more details here. Generally though starting with between 5-8% is a good idea and up to 10% for less strong fragrances should give you more than enough scent throw. It is always best to experiment with each scent and wax combination and start low and work up. As long as you follow the guide and observe the flash point you will get beautifully scented candles with a bit of practise. Generally speaking you should never put in more than 12% fragrance as the candle will literally begin to sweat or leach the fragrance.

All fragrance oils have what is referred to as a Flash Point – the temperature at which the oil will start to combust and the fragrance is released.

The flash point for Oud is 70°C, for more information on Flash Points follow this link https://www.cosyowl.com/guides/how-to-use-fragrance-oils/

*This fragrance contains natural elements (essential oils, extracts, resins, isolates) but is not fully natural. Our fragrance oils have been designed to be as simple, clean and natural as possible whilst delivering the best scent throw and the best range of scent notes. Compounds that aren’t sourced direct from nature are either chemically identical to naturally found compounds, artificially created, or modified slightly, usually to give a slightly stronger scent. Occasionally fragrances not found in nature are used to give the distinctive scent that is required for some more artificial type fragrances. This is the same as all fragrance oils on the market today.

 

Fragrance oils are typically given a year’s expiry from the date of manufacture however, many fragrance oils can last months or even years past this date if stored correctly. Tests (we don’t offer this service) can be performed on fragrance oils to determine their suitability beyond their shelf life.

Current IFRA documents (IFRA version 48) are relevant and applicable for all our fragrances until February 2022, when the new classifications come into force for existing products, i.e. fragrances that are already on the market. All new fragrances are already subject to the IFRA 49 classifications. Over the coming weeks, as we receive the relevant information, we will be updating and making the necessary changes to our website.
