Scent Profile:

Oud – Originating from Southeast Asia and South Asia, Oud is rare and widely sought after in traditional perfumes. Natural Oud is said to cost more than its weight in gold.  We used a blend of essential oils, aroma chemicals and resins to create an interpretation of Oud.   King of Oud combines the freshness of Bergamot and scents of Rose and Pink Pepper sitting on a bed of Oud, Patchouli and Vetiver for a fragrance that is both fresh and richly aromatic.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Clary Sage, Rose, Aldehydes and Pink Pepper
Middle notes: Angelica, Rosewood, Galbanum
Base notes: Agarwood or Oud, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Patchouli and Amber

Hops Extract is added to provide  biological activities such as anti-inflammatory, anti-angiogenic providing relief for inflammation and prevention of spider veins.

Omega-6 Linoleic Acid and Omega-3 Linolenic Acid, the only long chain fatty acid which the body needs but cannot synthesize have long been recognized as essentials for healthy looking skin.


Made with high quality ingredients including Donkey Milk, Castor Oil, Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Shea Butter for added post shave benefits.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    WOW, this is just a superb soap, my first in this line and I will definitely try a few more. I have been into fragrances for a long time and Oud was one of my favorite ingredients, and this one is very well done in a soap – nice, kind of perfumey ( I do also get a little bergamot and sandalwood) – no barnyard stuff here and the scent lingers for hours after the shave. What sold this soap for me was the post shave feeling, that lasted well into next morning. This is definitely a high end soap for me – and a real treat!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    It’s pricey for a soap but in my estimation it’s worth it. It’s a complex scent so it’s difficult to describe but I do pick up on the rose and the vetiver. It’s a great scent and has definitely peaked my interest in trying some of the other soaps in the line. The post-shave feel is second to none, definitely a top soap in all respects so you do get what you pay for.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    King of Oud is my third Wholly Kaw soap and second with donkey milk. It provides a near top tier shave with both straights and DE razors. Load it up and you get a rich thick lather best tackled with a 6/8 or larger blade. Hold back on the loading and up the water and it is perfect with a DE. Flexible and accommodating with no irritation and a fresh clean hydrated after shave feel. The scent is very similar to GFT Spanish Leather an old time favourite at a favourable price point. A true premium soap with an Oud interpretation that will please those who are not too adventurous.
