100% Wild Indonesian Oud

Malino is a small town surrounded by dense forest in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The aroma of Malino is generally light and easy going. This oil was reportedly distilled back in 2011 but time doesn’t make much of a mark on this region with minimal character differences with age. The scent has been expressed in different ways by different people. For me I picture sweet nutty clouds. I can say that this oud is gentle, light and bright, expressive in an elegant fashion with a creamy ‘satay like’ nutty scent upon application which transforms slowly and subtly into a light calf leather. The aroma discreetly makes itself known to you throughout the day in a light but pleasant way with wisps of nutty clouds! A light and fluffy wild oud.

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.
