Oud Royal Serendib
- From Arabic سَرَنْدِيب (sarandīb), from Persian سرندیپ (sarandip): An ancient name of Ceylon or Sri Lanka.
Root of the word Serendipity.
Aged for over two years now, this signature green Silani oud distilled from incense-grade material by one of Ceylon’s most eminent artisanal distillers really does capture the essence of a far-flung tropical island, where the ocean breeze and salty air of white sandy beaches meet with dense green jungles and unripe exotic fruits along the shoreline.
With ageing, this gorgeous Silani has shed its initial intense leathery notes to reveal why it’s treasured as one of the rarest and most beautiful profiles in the world of oud: a delicate and yet breathtaking kaleidoscope of ambergris, salty sea air and marine notes carried by an undercurrent of unripe green fruits and tropical jungles to create its famed aquatic blue and green-hued profile.
Musky marine notes
In terms of value, I’ve heavily discounted this oil so that it’s price now is very close to what it cost me over two years ago, essentially giving you two years of ageing (almost) free on the house!
The reason for this is that we’re moving country in shaa Allah (I know!), so I’m aiming to clear out all stock before then as I’m unsure when we’ll be set up again and what our new format might look like (please subscribe to emails and Instagram for the latest updates).
Quantity of this oil is very limited.
