About Us

Background

Udgoon means ‘nice smell’ in Somali and pronounced ud-gone. We decided to spell it with a Q instead of a G because we wanted to add a twist to it.

Udqoon main aim is to bring unforgettable scents to any environment.  The brand was established in 2017 and inspired by scents of East Africa. The finest oils and ingredients are used to create a vibrant and memorable scent.

The first collection was named 'Halima' after the founders mother.
