  Agarwood (Oud, Aloewood)
Aquilaria crassna, hydro-distilled from the wood of naturally farmed trees in Indonesia.


2019.  Distilled from trees grown for 20-25 years... CITES certificate of sustainable agriculture. Grown chemical free. The most stunning Agarwood I have ever experienced.

My friend Charlie Banks received a sample of this, and wrote, "The most exciting part of my orders this season is the vial of agarwood I was gifted during the Nature's Gift 12 days of Christmas celebration. I've had it on a scent strip for 24 hours now and it shows no signs of calming down. This is incredible. For a few days I really had no words. All I could do was smell it. I'm a big fan of Oud fragrances to begin with, but I don't know if I will have the guts to blend this with anything. It's perfect all on its own. Immediately out of the bottle it's intense and woodsy. Sweet, sour, resinous, slightly like white wine. The animalic notes really become present as it dries down. It's very earthy, but elegant at the same time. "

In 2002 we brought in a tiny amount of this rarity. At the time, I wrote: “Deep, woody, earthy, stable and strong...if rocks had roots they would smell like this distillation of agarwood. Amazingly tenacious. Aphrodisiac, unforgettable. The aroma speaks to your spirit for hours. A smidgeon on a scent strip lingers for hours, and reverberates inside our spirit. VERY limited supply.  I can’t BELIEVE I found this rarity!”

Regarding a previous batch from 2016, Christi wrote, “Finally, an Agarwood (Oud) oil that will put a smile on your face and tickle your fancy! First impression of our new Agarwood, it makes my nose happy! From the tropical Agar tree, a gift from the Eastern Hemisphere, much sought after in oil or resin form. Marge finds it animalic, which is an attribute often associated with Agarwood. Multi-layered and slightly musky with an unexpected sweetness to its depth, the aroma is stunning, and must be experienced. Agarwood is a base note in perfumery, normally evoking a ‘thump’ in the stomach, for its earthiness. Our specimen is not quite as earthy as one might expect, but personally, I prefer the musty, sweet, woodsiness of this new batch. The oil is thick and resinous, dark orange in color. Many high end perfumes contain Agarwood (Oud). Sometimes it is referred to as ‘Aloeswood’.”

SAFETY: No known safety hazards although it may have a sedative effect.

Available pure and undiluted here or in a 10% dilution in Organic Jojoba.

    I honestly can’t even think of a description that would do this stunning oil justice! It’s got a personality all its own, like nothing I’ve ever experienced!

    The first couple of days I had this gem, all I did was put a drop on a scent strip and smell it every so often; getting to know it as it slowly changed through the day. Marge kindly discussed it with me those first days, helping me wrap my head around the possibilities that lay within. I’d been researching blending ideas for weeks, but I hadn’t been prepared for the splendor I’d be working with!

    And then, the blending began! One blend at a time, tweaking and fine-tuning, marveling at the way even a hint of agarwood could transform familiar favorites into so much more! I’m still going through a LONG list of things I want to combine with this’s so complex all by itself, blending possibilities abound!

    If I had to include one oil in every blend I ever try, this would be it! I’m sure I’ll find things I dislike with it eventually...but I haven’t yet! :D
