"This text has been automatically translated and may contain errors. Oud (Firbest) is a fragrance composition for use in, for example, perfume, cosmetics, and air fresheners.


Oud (Firbest) is a fragrance composition intended to replace or imitate natural oud extracts. It has a scent reminiscent of wood, resin and moss. The odor is not particularly strong, undiluted use is common. You usually use between 0.1% and 5% of this substance in the fragrance composition, but more, in a single note perfume for example, is not a problem. It combines well with woods and spicy scents, as well as floral scents such as jasmine. It is mainly a base note in perfumes. The stability is not well described, we recommend testing this well when used in, for example, soap or deodorant. Keep cool, dry, dark and out of reach of children.


Oud (Firbest) is an orange-brown, viscous liquid at room temperature, which can already solidify at slightly lower temperatures. The substance has a fairly long shelf life. It is a 'specialty' of the Swiss firm of Firmenich: a mixture of natural and synthetic fragrances that together form an approximation of the smell of old extracts. It contains a small amount of animal substances (at least beeswax extracts). The old name of this product is Oud (Fireco). Oud, also known as oud, agarwood or agarwood, is an almost magical substance that is created when a certain tree (Aquilaria crassna Pierre ex Lecomte) defends itself against a certain fungus (Phialophora parasitica >). The tree is protected under the CITES treaty and the fragrance is very popular in the area of ??origin. Add to that the fact that in recent decades it has become a very popular fragrance elsewhere and it is clear that it is a difficult to obtain, very expensive fragrance. The result is also that there is a lot of counterfeit in the trade, real old extracts are difficult to obtain and usually not real (but still expensive). For all these reasons, we have chosen a product where we know that the smell is good and the origin is in any case clear. Firmenich is an excellent manufacturer of expensive, but very high-quality fragrances, so this specialty is a good option to get as close as possible to the real stuff.


The 1 and 5 gram packaging is made of brown glass with a black cap: these bottles are not completely filled, they contain what is written on the label, but some more would fit in them. The 20 and 50 g packs are made of aluminum with a white cap.

H411 ??- Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects. It contains the allergenic substances eugenol and farnesol in addition to some others in smaller amounts.
