Oud oils and Perfumes

Oud oil is extremely rare and precious natural oil obtained from agarwood tree. Here in the United Arab Emirates, oud oils and perfumes are very popular. Like bakhoor, it is commonly used as household fragrant but there are body oils and perfumes too.

Photos shown above were taken a month ago at Abdul Samad Al Qurashi in Khalifa Street.

Word of the day: attar is the arabic word for perfume.Salaam!
