I started Ashworth Oud as an artisanal natural perfumery dedicated to bringing you some of the finest ouds, attars and rare aromatics from around the world.

My mission is to help you explore the world: To offer you aromatic gems along your journey to discover our planet’s unique and breathtakingly beautiful scents.

From ‘new-age’ artisanal oils to age-old traditional distillations; beautiful oils come in many shapes and forms. There is beauty in both the classic and the modern, the old and the new. 

My goal, therefore, is to unearth, craft, and share with you these gorgeous natural oils wherever they may be, and from whichever school of thought or culture they come. If it’s beautiful, I’ll share it. 

That’s my promise.

Welcome to your atelier – Smell great, and explore the world.


A Little About Me

My name is Muhammad Ashworth. I am British Singaporean but grew up in Saudi Arabia, in the heart of a region that celebrates all things oud and that has been steeped in the use of fine natural aromatics, resins and oils for thousands of years.

That’s where I first fell in love with oud, and where my journey into the world of natural fragrances began. And then of course, my childhood travels to Singapore and the UK, the East and the West.

The generosity of Arabia, the exoticness of Singapore, and the luscious beauty of Britain. Today, I draw inspiration from these places and others; from nature and the untouched wilderness; from history, past kingdoms, ancient civilisations, and many more. Our world is full of inspiration and adventure.

Through Ashworth Oud, I hope I can help you in your journey to explore the world through its gorgeous scents and rare aromatics.
