LabSolue presents its olfactory celebration of Oud.

From the heart and heat of the Agarwood, breathe in the dark character of Oud, valued as gold. The rarest and most precious raw material of ancient Arab tradition is forged by Italian creativity. Waves of woody, warm and smoked notes are mixed in an hypnotic combination. From the Middle East to Italy, an unusually clean and electrifying interpretation. Made to celebrate life and the richness of olfactory culture.

An Essence formed with the precious resinous wood of Oud, or Agarwood, accompanied by the refined natural resins of Styrax and Benzoin.

Curiosity: Oud or Agarwood is the resinous heartwood that forms in the Aquilaria Tree, an evergreen from Southeast Asia, when it is infected by a particular type of mold. As a defense, the plant produces a dark aromatic resin that thickens and embeds itself in the wood and is traditionally highly prized in Arab culture for its characteristic scent. It is the most expensive wood in the world, due both to the scarcity of this natural resource which takes many years to form, and the laborious harvesting process which requires skill and experience. The dark aromatic part must in fact be separated by hand from the healthy part, the so carved wood chips are used directly as incense or distillated for the extraction of the Essential Oil.

Good to know
LabSolue 16 Oud Eau de Parfum is handcrafted in Italy. For us, the Made in Italy is not only a choice of excellence, but also a commitment towards the community.

The fragrance is vegan, and gender free. For its formulation we exclusively select and use alcohol grain-derived from European sources. It does not contain artificial colorants, its color is solely due to the natural ingredients of the essence.

The fragrance is enclosed in an amber glass bottle with a contemporary design, elegantly minimal - inspired by the original design of the Marvin perfume bottles - designed and made to last over time, refillable and recyclable. Equipped with a metallic pump that is easily screwed and unscrewed, which makes both the refill and recycling process possible and simple. The cap is made in Italy from a high-quality recyclable metal alloy. It features an engraving on the top with the historical Marvin brand symbol: a tiny alembic with the letter m. A detail that is a tribute to the origins and to the family history.

The packaging, including the external and internal parts, is made entirely of paper, to ensure simple and correct recycling. For the same reason, we have chosen not to protect the box with cellophane. The paper we use is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, to guarantee its origin from responsibly managed forests, and is recyclable.

All this to respect and promote the social and ecological needs of present and future generations.

LabSolue: from Laboratory and Absolute, two fundamental aspects to the art of perfumery blended to create olfactory beauty.

From the emphasis on expertise, to the use of Nature's finest ingredients, LabSolue Essences are born.
