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 Home Perfume 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.

Each LabSolue diffuser is designed and made to last, endlessly refillable, reusable and recyclable. Its distinctive design, reminiscent of the old pharmacy, is a tribute to the historical apothecary brand Marvin. To fully promote the brands re-fill mantra, it comes as a empty diffuser, together with a refill full of perfume and a set of reeds. The diffuser can be closed again by using its frosted glass cap, to avoid fragrance diffusion while away from home for long time. Both the diffuser, its cap and the refill are made of amber glass and are recyclable. The reeds are made of natural untreated rattan.

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.

The creation of a formula is a matter of science, but the experience of a perfume is emotion. Set - and scent - the scene with timeless elegance and olfactive style. LabSolue Home Perfumes distinctive design is inspired by the original Marvin brand apothecary amber-glass bottles.
