Haute Arabia Recommends: Lao Vintage by Sultanul Oud

Lao VIntage by Sultanul Oud

Experience a true blue vintage, pure Oud oil with our Laos offering. A brilliant oil that was crafted in 1995 from resinated wild Oud wood and left to age for over 18 years to reveal its brilliant scent profile of the present masterpiece.

Its diverse scent profile of rich creamy, layered with thick floral scent notes, complete with a heavy but refined and sophisticated sweet tobacco dry down makes this Oud a real rarity in terms of the experience you are going to get.

Laos is part of the golden triangle region where the wild Oud is famous for its distinct and amazing scent quality. Where it used to be an unaccessible destination, now it is a popular tourist hotspot among backpackers. Ever since the country’s emergence from obscurity, the country has also experienced an alarmingly high increase of Oud supplies from cultivated and farmed sources, which usually bear inferior, chemical impregnated Oud resin. In addition, much of its forests are also being logged and deforested due the country’s rapid growth rate.

To get wild Oud from this amazing source is undoubtedly difficult and more pricier now, hence we are thrilled to be able to acquire this Oud which has the potential to grow higher in price in the future, due to the rare Oud composition and the vintage profile of this Oud oil.
