Please note: This oil, known as "White Oud" is not distilled from agarwood ( infected Aquilaria tree) but Aetoxylon Sympetalum (the local called it crocodile Buaya Agarwood, a native species in Indonesia). If you are a perfumer, then this White Oud may interest you.
Although it is not agarwood, its scent is quite woody and "interesting".
Scent profile: smokey, peppery, musty, somewhat leathery and softwood scent. Imagine you are camping and burn some firewood, that warm and comfortable ambience.
I described it "interesting" because, in addition to the muddy woody note, it also has a "burn tyre" note. But don't worry, it is not offensive, you will just feel a hint of it.
In addition, It gets even more "interesting" because
if you think a burning tyre, you will perceive "burning tyre" note
If you think of a leather jacket, you will feel the leathery note.
Because of its unique scent profile, many cosmetic manufacturers have this white oud oil in their skin care products. However, they mislabeled this oil as agarwood.
The species is different from Aquilaria and so as the aroma.
Would it be easier to try yourself to see what it smells like?
The best oil of this type every purchased.. much deeper and woody with an incense like in dry down... not so soury or gnawing like others... Excellent oil... from a great Distributor
Open stone floored halls, leather, old books, damp earth and my childhood doctors surgery. Exactly my childhood doctors surgery. Medicinal. I love the concept of transportative scent and if any scent has made me feel a dimension of space in a three dimensional sense, it's this. To a biggener nose I get a medicinal, slightly menthol peppery smell ontop of a thick parchemnt, petricore. The oil itself is unusually thick and subtle considering quntity. Almost like castor oil. While I truly enjoyed the scent, others with less adventurous tastes were put off by it's strange damp spaciousness. I may have experienced a slight amount of inflammation/vasoconstriction after using but it's hard to say. Thanks for making this available! I would certainly recommend.
Burnt tires, leather and wood. I haven't smell anything like this before. If you are perfumer maybe you can do the miracle mixing it with other oils
This is an absolutely fantastic oil, albeit not agarwood - it should be noted that it really doesn't need to be. A soft, vegetal aroma, creamy and somewhat smoky, it has light, refined animalic leathery qualities - it reminds me strongly of a very high grade soft leather or suede, with slightly horsey nuances; like an immaculately kept, but well used and loved saddle or riding boots, but with soft creamy woody notes in the heart. As an oil its soft, supple, smooth, lightly animalic with leathery hues and smoky overtures which creates a plush ambience when worn, it has such beautiful, tender qualities and is definitely worthy of stand alone use. I love it!
