As our Lawas Exquisite oud oil was running low, it was time to move on to the next project. And it has been more than one year to collect the distilling material. We can tell you with pride; it is a very successful distillation. This is one of the finest oil we ever had in our collection.
Introduce to you: "Kayu Suci" which means Holy Wood
This wild oud oil was one of the winner of the year in according to some private oud collectors
But this is NOT the only thing that was so special about this oil?
Let me explain
There are three important factors to make an Oud Oil great
- Distilling materials (the grade of agarwood chips, the higher the better)
- The distilling apparatus or simply the "cooking" pot. AND
- The distiller
First, the agarwood chips used to make this oud oil was not the top grade, but it was above standard. If I have to grade it on a scale from 1 to 10, it would be 7.
Next one would be the distilling Apparatus: the copper pot was customised to fit his requirement. The pipes were structured in a specific way that captures the most oil out of it. According to him, the distiller, cooper pot does provide a unique flavour which is different from the steel one. This alone has a special effect on the oil
This legendary distiller was banned from some of the discussion groups
For a single reason
He has an unfair advantage: he is the distiller, and he might undersell his oil at a lower price.
You see, this distiller is a close friend of mine, Mr X, supply the majority of this oil to two more vendors and me. Each of the vendors named it differently. For me, I have it named Kayu Suci
Please note, I only learnt this by chance.
Here is an intriguing story I want to share with you.
In early 2019, a customer, Mr M, contacted me for an appointment. He told me over the phone that he has some interesting stuff to share with me.
So around 3 pm on a Saturday, I met Mr M at my place. He showed me a box.
In that box, it was a personal collection of his oud oils. There were more than 20 of them from different vendors.
Mr M picked one and told me that this oil had impressed many Oud critics
Curiosity had gotten me, so I tried.
I was in shock because it was the same; it was identical to my Kayu Suci. But I did not say it.
Mr M told me: first "I came here just to show you this: this oil was the same as your Kayu Suci".
Mr M was impressed and surprised at the same time because the world is small.
About this oil Kayu Suci: 100% pure wild oud
This wild oil contains zero barnyards, spicy, camphoraceous, musty and sweet dried down. It is rich, warm. And super smooth If you love whiskey, you can definitely pair with this oil.

Are you feeling it? There is no resistance to put this oil on your skin. It smells so divine.
When you sniff it, close your eyes, a pleasant warm air will wash through your nose and deliver to your brain.
You will boom and blossom within minutes.
So what material you use to distil this oil?
See the below materials; these are wild agarwood collected from several dead trees from Baling District, Kedah State, Malaysia. It takes us one year to gather all the materials for this small project.
For your information, one surprising discovery around a dead tree:
Can you guess what so special about the below picture?
Guess what; these are Aquilaria saplings, which were found around the area of a dead tree. These trees will be grown up one day and hopefully, becomes agarwood.
These saplings have been spread out to ensure there is sufficient space for them to
grow because, with the current space, they will not grow.
Ready to smell good? , this batch contains the ONLY 50ml, AND 30 ml has been sold on the spot before we even package them. 20ml left.
If you are a collector, you would not want to miss this oil. There is a limited amount left.
You know what to do next :)
