    Sadly, no. Not that I am aware of.

    Depends on which oud you're smelling, as it varies regionally. When I'm able to pick it out, it smells like a barn, petting zoo, or hay.

    To the OP: I nominate Al Oudh for dirtiest oud.

    Neal are you sure you wanted to use the term "eloquent" for an oud? Eloquent is most often used in describing a quality of speech or writing. I guess you could use it figuratively to describe a fragrance, as you can with a lot of words. I'm really not trying to dig you but I'm not sure the word applies here.

    Oud smells like incense wood from an old wood tree that has a medicinal, slight camphorus antiseptic odor. Oud oil develops from the immune system reaction of the Acquilaria tree as it fights and defends itself from a fungus that grows on these particular types of evergreen tree. The dark sap filled center of the wood in these trees is the neutralized infection of the tree by its own immune system. Oud in its purest form smells medicinal to me and has a healing feel. There always seems to be other smells mixed into the "pure" oud oils so it is hard to identify what pure oud smells like. The other smells associated with natural oudh such as horse barn, cows, hay, pasture land, leaves, berries, nuts, flowers etc. come from the environment in which the wood lived before it was harvested and also from the process used to remove the oil from the wood. Some oud fragrance chemicals duplicate the burning incense of agarwood oud wood chips.

    The smell of oud is an abstract thing because it gets blended with and covered up by all the other things that perfumers put into these perfumes.

    You are indeed correct. Sort of ... in the context within which you reference, elegant would be the appropriate grammar. In my head I was trying to express how the fragrance speaks to me, hence my choice of the word eloquent. I should have expressed what was in my head more openly.
