is the Latin term of this treasured thousand-year-old resin wich comes from the Boswellia sacra tree.
From India all the way to the Horn of Africa and passing through the Sultanate of Oman, olibanum resin is harvested by cutting into the tree’s bark to awaken its woodsy, aromatic balsamic, mineral, spicey and lemony tonalites.
Great civilizations, such as the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, considered olibanum to be more precious than gold.
This resin, offered by the Three Wisemen, was one of the first raw materials to be burnt for its scent, for diffusing its laudable aroma and for communicating with the gods through asending fumes. The Latin term “Per fuman,” which means “through smoke,” is the origin of the word “perfume.”
