100% Wild Oud

Jayapura is the shining star of Papua. It’s agarwood and oil has a powerful nature and is in strong demand. I find the wood of this area has a distinguishable strong earthy sweet scent. This 2005 oil was made clean with no fermentation procedure. The aroma is strong, almost slightly sharp for a few moments upon application…ohh pokey. Some say Jayapura oud is earthy, Maybe some others are but this one has a deep unmistakable, complex, strong and luxurious calf leather note. The leather recedes over time to expose hidden complexities of sweetness and fruity notes.
100% wild oud here, no exceptions!

Oud aroma will vary depending on region , species variant of tree and oil processing. Oud is an oil made from the distillation of agarwood. Agarwood AKA Aloeswood, gaharu, Oud Wood is a resinous wood native to many areas of Asia. it can be found in some ‘Aquilaria’ species of tree. Parts of the tree would have been infected by a fungus via cuts or burrowing insects. After while the tree secretes a resin to protect the spread of this fungus.
