Oud virgins, look away now – Rania J.’s majestic Oud Assam features an authentic Indian oud oil that doesn’t pull any punches. The juicy, bitter orange framing the opening notes only serves to highlight the creamy bleu cheese feel of the oud. But give it a moment to settle, and you’ll begin to understand why Indian oud is considered the most spiritually uplifting type of oud. As the nose adjusts and the oud note begins to soften, one begins to discern the complex aromas of deep golden spice, leather, and fermented, creamy woodiness. A smell as ancient as time itself. Better yet, this is one Western oud that doesn’t drift into aimless sweetness in the base. Instead, a nutty vetiver, peppery musk, and smoky incense contributes a fresh, woodsy character that makes one think of a great forest in a Northern clime. A genuine oud experience in this price bracket is a rarity – we recommend you take the leap.
