Over the next 14 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 link to Part 4 of the weekly Oud Series which is on Fragrantica.
Fasten your web-belts; let’s go web-travelling…
