A lot of people are interested in agarwood oil but don't know where to start because there is so much adulterated and fake oil on the market. Many sellers say their agarwood oils are pure but that is not true.

It can be hard to find a quality, sustainable agarwood oil that you can trust. This can lead to people being scammed or paying too much for a low-quality product.

And this is where we come in.

We are a family of Agarwood growers. And we offer you to try out not just one but six different types of our sustainable agarwood oil. Many people like all six and some only like one. The only way to find out the right one for you is to actually try them.

We have a 100% double money-back guarantee on the authenticity of all of our oud oils, so you can be sure that you're getting the purest quality possible.

 

Why you are here?



Let me guess: you have just landed on this page for the following reasons

  • You probably heard of Oud (agarwood) before but have not tried it. Curiosity has led you to this page.

 

  • You have tried Oud before, but unsure what you tried were genuine. 

 

  • You have seen the word "Oud", "agarwood", "aloeswood" as an ingredient in mainstream perfume, skincare products. You have been wondering what it smells like, alone, in essential raw form. You want to isolate oud oil alone without any blending. You want 100% Oud Oil.

 

  • You started searching online and found a big difference in price between vendors. You don't want to commit to the unknown. What if this item is not genuine? What if this seller cheated me? A lot of what if.
  • After a bit of research, you are looking for 100% pure and genuine agarwood oil from a sustainable source? What if we told you that we had enough agarwood plantation to use forever (we re-plant after harvesting).

 

  • Would you like to try different Agarwood (Oud) oils as there are many versions on the market? From fresh floral, herbal medicinal, vanillic to the barnyard, animalic.

 

  • You a perfumer looking for oud oil to craft your blend and unsure what to choose? Or

 

  •  Simply, you just want to know what genuine Oud smells like

 

Congratulations, you have come to the right place. Feel overwhelmed? Don't worry; we get you covered. 

Let's start with a testimonial from  Gwendoline Ford  Australian College of Aromatherapy. 

 

 

 

 

Agarwood is also known in many different names: Aloeswood, Lignum Aloes, Oriental Lignaloes, Xylaloes, Eaglewood, Calambak (used in Cambodia) Lignum Rhodium. One of the most valuable of all perfume ingredients. Agarwood is the aromatic, resinous wood from the Thymelaeaceae species (Aquilaria Agollocha, also A. Malaccensis A. Crassna), native to Southeast Asia. Agarwood essential oil is either water or steam-distilled from the pulverised agarwood.

Organic/ Cultivated Agarwood Oil (Oud) Sample kit 0.1 ml  or  0.5 ml( for aroma enjoyment) includes six (6) different oils 

Saving tips: 0.5 ml option, which is 5 times more than 0.1 ml, but it only costs around 2 times more

 

What is in it for me?

 After trying these 6 hydro/steam distillation ouds,

  • You will have a basic understanding of what Oud essential oil smells like. You will understand the reason behind the name: Wood of God (mentioned in the Holy Bible, the Quran, the Buddhist Scripture, the Vedas)

 

  • You will know what you like most. Oud oil's scent profile varies from species, agarwood plantation, distillation method, and the distiller's skill. By having this sample set, you will know your preference.

 

  • If you are a perfumer, aromatherapist, you would appreciate these samples even more. No one knows your customers better than you do, and the smell which could offend someone might be the most beautiful scent to others.

 

  • You will save your time and money. You can buy more than 6 samples in one place, and you need to pay postage once. You don't have to manage multiple shipping from different suppliers. We will take care of the logistics for you.

 

Wild Oil Sample set only available at 0.5 ml, including five different oils, 1 sample for each (please note this Wild Sample Set changes frequently):

 

 

As these Oud are distilled from wild agarwood. It means it would be challenging to get the same oil again. For that reason, the sample list above will be changed when we sold out of any oil. They are rare and one of a kind.

 

To Middle East countries, our oud oil does not have the decomposition note. If you are after a big order and what to try a small amount, here is the best blind buy with low risk. Choose Option 0.5 ml for value and quality.

Please see the below review from Julie Nelson, Artisan Perfumer Scent Stylist Scent Branding for Business Aromatherapy Consultant, which should give you what to expect.

 

 

Sample. It should be free, shouldn't it?

Dear friend

When people see the word "sample", they associate it with another word. That word is "FREE".

 

Unfortunately, I cannot offer these oils "FREE" for you. 

Let me explain

 

 

It takes at least 10 years to grow these Aquilaria trees. Once these trees mature, it takes an additional 2 years to form agarwood. After creating agarwood, it takes hundreds of hours of preparation and distillation to get these Ouds to you.

 

In these 12 years, we receive nothing financially. We even have out-of-pocket expenses such as

  • Land tax, water, electricity, fuel, security guard, management, maintenance and labour.

I can get an accountant to give you a complete list. But again, he may charge us too for his time, which is calculated hourly.

And there are more

What if some of these trees were dead, or someone stole the trees (it happened at night, on many occasions)? Of course, that would be our loss.

Have you ever had a broken pipe? Our irrigation system contains many pipes. Sometimes, these pipes are punctured by the tree roots. That is another severe cost to fix right there.

We then call a plumber. Would he fix this  Free of Charge? Would he give us a "sample" too?

Why am I telling you this?

Up till today, we have been receiving multiple requests for FREE samples. 

And for the above reasons,

I hope you understand why we are not able to offer these oils FREE to you.

I thank you for your understanding.

Warning:

I do not promise that you would like the smell of these oils.

I do not promise that you could successfully blend perfume out of it.

I do not promise that these oils meet your expectations. 

In fact,

You may even hate it because it is unfamiliar to you or its strength is too strong.

So

If you are thinking about buying this set and refunding later when you don't like it, I strongly encourage you NOT to go ahead. 

 

Because 

 

It will get ugly later on, and it is no good for both of us.

Just like Blue Cheese, especially the smell, some people love it while others hate it. 

 

However

What I can promise you are these genuine, sustainable agarwood oils.

If you are in doubt, you can send these samples to any credible labs to test. If the result stated these oils were not pure Oud Oil, we would refund "Double" to what you paid plus the lab test fee. 

 

The scent profile was complex that many perfumers and aromatherapists love it.

If you are open-minded and want to try, I would welcome you to give these a go.

    olfactory adventure

    Exciting, I love perfume and I am intrigued by the complexity of each different smell and the effects of introduced aromas and the dance they do together in my nose. It is like dancing, poetry and really great story telling, and if badly mixed it's like a war. I am saving up to get some "wild Oud" , so I will be in touch.

    Interesting range, great quality

    Because oud varies so much it was great to get a range of different oils in the sample set, rather than have to buy them all individually, which would have been extremely costly. Quality was good, though the small black topped vials were very hard to open. Other than that they were beautifully packaged and delivered very quickly. Very professional!

    • Have you tried Agarwood (Oud) before? Yes
    • What do you like? Double Happiness, Peated
    • Anything that you don't like? Middle Eastern, though just personal preference
