The House of Oud


- +

Empathy pays tribute to the nobility of soul of those of us who, in friendship as in love, give ourselves without reservation in a world dominated by the emptiness of words and increasingly devoid of real presence.

Empathy is a reset, it is a chance to settle down and listen to another’s soul, making a gift of our emotive attention. Empathy is the storytelling of an instant. Our bubble of perfection.

The House of Oud is the story of a friendship between an Italian master perfumer and an oud aficionado from Jakarta, a friendship born of a shared passion for art, perfume and travel along with a deep appreciation of beauty.

The House of Oud uses only the highest quality raw materials and the oud, which is found in every fragrance in the collection, is sourced from across the world. Oud never dominates but is used to create a bridge between the other ingredients, resulting in richly nuanced and completely addictive collections.

Designed to fit in the palm of the hand, the fragrance bottle is reminiscent of a smooth stone. The unique lacquering technique means that no two bottles are the same and the top-down design allows the beauty of these highly individual fragrances to be fully appreciated..
