NEJMA PERFUMES: Fragrances extracted from OUD

Agarwood or Oud has been used to make high quality incense for centuries and was often used in religious and festive celebrations by Chinese, Arabian, Indian and Japanese people. In some countries oud was believed to have had medicinal virtues.

The oil extracted from Agarwood is used in Arabian countries as a perfume. Although in the past, rose and Jasmine were preferred Agarwwood is now the ultimate contemporary designer fragrance ingredient.

Agarwood is reputed to be the most expensive wood in the world. Oud is a resinous fragrant heartwood (central part of the tree) that occurs in trees belonging to species of the Aquilaria family. Agarwood forms as a reaction to fungal attack. The trees that become infected by the bacteria will secrete a fragrant acting like a protective oil into the wounded areas of the trunk. Only 20% of Aquilaria trees give Oud that is scented. Oud oil production requires a minimum of 20 Kg of resinous wood to produce 12ml of oil.

Aqualiria species producing Agarwood are found naturally in South, Southeast Asia and the Indian sub-continent. Later on its plantations were extended to a number of countries including Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Thailand…

Rudis! New Fragrance by Nobile1942 and Antonio Alessandria.

There is a new fragrance in town called Rudis! A co-creation by        Nobile 1942 and the Newcomer of the Year: Antonio Alessandria. Rudis takes you back to the Romans, where the gladiators ‘the swordsman’ were fighting for entertainment. The wooden sword they are using by the training is called Rudis. Antonio Alessandria and Nobile 1942 did a lot of research about the way of living of the gladiators.

The fragrance captures the different parts of the gladiator’s journey: the red wine he drinks, the sword he grabs and the fight he is fighting. That’s why the fragrance opens with a rich mix of whiskey and leather, infused with tart fruits, smoky wood and saffron. After that it develops with roses, patchouli and other spices into a balanced unisex fragrance with a masculine tone.

 

Besides the fragrance the packing is also a very interesting given. Handmade from Florentine waxed leather by craftsman in Italy. The logo of Nobile 1942 is stamped into the waxy red of the leather. Because the whole process takes a lot of manual work, there is per month a limited number available.
