Dukhoon+ | 2019-2022

Designers: Orange Creatives, A4M Group, Rotterdam, The Netherlands 
Manufacturer: Dukhoon, Adan City, Kuwait

The Dukhoon+ was designed to create aromas and scents using natural ingredients, based on an ancient traditional ritual. After numerous design iterations, Dukhoon invented a sage, user-friendly, and natural-ingredient-based technology. The Traditional Arabic way of creating scent and aroma is by burning natural wood chips, like agarwood, using charcoal inside a stone or metallic burner. It is a natural way to create room fragrance, personal perfume, or even aroma therapy.

Though the designers love the pure ingredients of the traditional Arabic ritual, it is quite time-consuming, and the charcoal causes accidents. The Dukhoon+ offers fragrance, created directly from natural ingredients, eliminates the resources needed to process man-made aromas and perfumes.

Secondly, compared to the traditional Arabic ritual, the Dukhoon+ prevents burn accidents, requires less fragrant material, and operates on electricity (and potentially renewable energy) instead of charcoal. When you open the lid, you see the heating chamber. This is a unique chamber with a customized heating element. Air pulses around the heating chamber and pulls the aroma out.

In order to create a scent or perfume, simply place agarwood or another scented wood into the insulated heating chamber. Double-click the power button. And that’s it. The scented smoke will come out within seconds. Direct it towards your hair, or clothes, or leave it standing on the table.
