What is Agarwood?

Agarwood (or aloeswood, eaglewood) is a dark fragrant wood that has been used in incense, perfume, Chinese medicine and wood carvings for over 3,000 years. The aquilaria tree itself is odourless. After being infected by mould (Phialophora parasitica) in the heartwood, it releases a type of dark resin over time. This dark aromatic resin, featuring a woody, sweet and gentle smell, becomes extremely precious thus often referred to as "the King of Incense" and "liquid gold".

"One reason oud is so expensive is its rarity; by some estimates, fewer than 2% of wild agar trees produce it. Experts claim that the very best oud comes from the oldest trees, which are even more scarce." - Fortune, 2015

The variety of Agarwood's aroma depends on species, geographic locations, length of time being infected and a lot more elements. The fragrance notes range from fruity and vanilla to woody and smoky.  

"It’s spicy, woody, ambery and animalistic — all at the same time." - Dominique Ropion, French Perfume Designer, told New York Times

Some of the best agarwood are from the rainforest of South East Asia, including Vietnam, Indonesia and Cambodia.

Our incense uses the highest-quality sustainably harvested agarwood from these regions, combining with other all-natural ingredients to create a variety of refreshing and pleasant smell. With a precise sensation and creative mind, our incense designer adds an exciting twist to the inherited traditional recipes.
