The chef needs to add salt to enhance its sweetness, not sugar. You probably feel strange, but the next time you have watermelon, try to sprinkle a bit of salt on top. You will feel the watermelon tastes sweeter even though you add salt.
Salt is also used to smooth out the sourness.

Let me explain The role of Salt in agarwood creation.
We care for our Aquilaria trees when they are young. But when they are old enough, we need to put pressure on them to create agarwood.
Sometimes we don’t water them for months, we even rub salt on them.
You probably heard the idiom "rub salt in the wound".
This is precisely what we do. We rub salt into the wound of our Aquilaria trees to create stress.
The reason: under these dire conditions, it triggers the tree survival mechanism. Within one month, Agarwood forms under these conditions will increase the production of the two aromatic chromones (aromatic molecules)
When burned as incense, these chromones will provide a lasting pleasant woodiness.
Here is the good news, these 2 chromones are in our agarwood chips
