SCENTS OF OMAN

Hong Kong Tatler - - | Tatler Focus Crystal Cruises -

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.
