In this enlightening exploration, we unveil the secrets behind the art of making Oudh Attar, from sourcing raw materials to the final blending process.

The Essence of Oudh Attar

Before delving into the production process, it’s essential to understand the essence of Oudh Attar. Oudh Attar, also known as Agarwood oil, is prized for its rich, woody aroma and complex fragrance profile. Derived from the resinous heartwood of the Aquilaria tree, Oudh Attar embodies centuries of craftsmanship and tradition.

Traditional Techniques-

Sourcing Raw Materials:

Aquilaria Tree Cultivation

The journey of Oudh Attar begins with the cultivation of the Aquilaria tree. Native to regions such as Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent, the Aquilaria tree produces resinous wood prized for its aromatic properties. Sustainable cultivation practices ensure the preservation of these valuable trees while supporting local communities.

Agarwood Formation

The resinous heartwood of the Aquilaria tree undergoes a natural process of infection and resin formation, triggered by environmental factors or human intervention. This resinous wood, known as Agarwood or Oudh, is the precious ingredient used in the production of Oudh Attar. Skilled harvesters carefully select and harvest Agarwood from mature trees, ensuring optimal quality and fragrance.

Distillation Processes:

Steam Distillation

Traditional methods of Oudh Attar production often involve steam distillation, a labor-intensive process that extracts the aromatic compounds from Agarwood. Agarwood chips or shavings are placed in a distillation vessel with water, and steam is passed through the mixture. The steam carries the aromatic molecules from the Agarwood, which are then condensed and collected as Oudh Attar.


Hydrodistillation is another traditional distillation method used in Oudh Attar production. Similar to steam distillation, hydrodistillation involves the use of water to extract aromatic compounds from Agarwood. The Agarwood is submerged in water and heated, allowing the volatile molecules to vaporize and condense into Oudh Attar.
