100% Pure Trat Thai Oud
People say that Trat is the ‘go to’ Oud for newcomers. So here it is!
Candy sweet with stewed/ripe fruits, leathery, complex and deep. I recently tested out a series of samples and found myself returning to Trad time and time again. This Oud is made of cultivated agarwood material from Trad area in Trat on the Thai / Cambodian boarder. The extra fermentation helps drive the aroma forward, adds depth and creates great longevity, it can last 12 hours on the skin. The barn is here but it’s restrained making for a strong, sweet, fruity and leathery Oud.
