The market called it "White Oud", but some cosmetic producers labelled it "agarwood oil."
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.
Does it smell good?
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.
Are you feeling curious?
Would it be easier to try yourself to see what it smells like?
