SCENTS OF OMAN
The sultanate is a source not only of the world’s finest frankincense, but also perfumed oils, hand-blended incense and other aromatics The world’s most sought-after frankincense comes from Oman. The locals burn it to fumigate and perfume their homes and to ritually purify public spaces.
Oudh, a fragrant ebony-coloured resin, is prized for its scent. Raw or perfume-soaked oudh chips used in incense burn with a sweet, loamy smell.
Petals of roses from the Jebel Akhdar region are collected over a few weeks every spring and are used to produce Oman’s famous rose water.
