Agarwood is widely regarded as the king of incense. Oil from this wood is used to make a highly prized Oud perfume. This perfume can be sold and used neat in small vials or added to other high end fragrances at a ratio of between 3-6%. some Agarwood and oud oil is valued much higher than gold per gram.
This agarwood comes from Nha Trang Province in Vietnam. The process to create this wood is classified as ‘organic’, the farmers try to mimic nature when producing it. If you look closely at the pictures you will see that the holes are very small and can only have been created by burrowing insects and naturally inoculated by the wounds of these holes.
Simply burn a small amount 0.1g or more with an instant charcoal or via a naked flame. The heavenly scent is musky, primal and can linger for days. The best naturally occurring wild agarwood has fallen from the trees on its own accord and is gathered from the forest floor. This is called ‘soil grade’ and is very rare, old, sinking in water and extremely resinous! Cheaper agarwood is farmed and harvested to feed the expanding market and improving sustainability. Different cultivation techniques and the time that Agarwood is left to form on a tree will also impact on its quality and resin/oil percentage.
This is a cultivated offering ‘grade A+’ which is a great for every day burning.
