My name is dehn al Oud…

What you seek is seeking you
- Rumi

Over the next 8 weeks we will be exploring Oud wood and oil. Not the synthetics that are now a staple of mainstream perfumery; this series will go to the source of the oil itself.

This is the intro post to the weekly series which is on Fragrantica.
Fasten your web-belts let’s go web-travelling…

The series starts here: My name is dehn al Oud

  1. I was at a friend’s house the other day and he had a book of Rumi poems that I thought at first looked a bit annoyingly…..something. A bit ‘spiritual self helpy’ for me, I imagined. Not so: every single thing I read was amazing. Profound but also mirrored, puzzle like, genuinely probing.

    I look forward to your oud series.

    • Ha, this is one is weekly. Happy sitting! Maybe you could quilt up a tree? I am thrilled that you are coming on this journey Lee. I have pitched a project that we can do together for this series. Waiting on a Board decision and possible bee harmonics.

    • Writing it as up we speak Sally. Great to have you breathing the same air on this fragrant road. Where will we end up? There will be jungles, scoundrels and tigers or is that Katy Perry that I can hear roaring?
