Oud. What is Oud? Well according to GQ Magazine

"In the Middle East, they take their oud very seriously but it has only caught on in a big way in the UK in last few years. It is derived from the tropical agar tree, which is thought to originate in Assam in India. When the tree is infected by a mould known as Phialophora parasitica it reacts by producing a dense, dark and fragrant resin to protect itself. It is the resin-embedded heartwood of the tree that is the source of oud."

Also known as LIQUID GOLD Oud is extremely rare, in high demand, and difficult to harvest. It's perhaps the most expensive oil in the world! 

Its value is estimated as 1.5 times of the value of gold, and it is sometimes referred to as "liquid gold."

So what do you care? Well in the perfume world it is highly valued and it should be by us candle addicts as well! Oud is known for it's sweet, woody, aromatic and complex scent!

SO...drum roll please!

Ya dang right oud scent is coming to an Ebony & Ivory Candle near you! 

Rich Bitch will be launching in February so brace yourself, because this is totally the way to scent your 2018!

 

So that's my story and I am stickin to it, but here is one last teaser for my next reveal...leather.

XOXO
