Precious Agarwood, or Oud, is the resinous heartwood that forms in the ancient trees native to the dense forests of South East Asia. The trees form a dark tar-like aromatic resin as a part of its natural defense mechanism when infected with fungus. The resulting resinous heartwood is reputed to be one the most expensive woods in the world. Agarwood is a time honored incense, prized over the course of history by affluent people as a charm to produce good luck and positive energy.
Agarwood has been gaining popularity in the West with several designer brands launching Oud fragrances. Depending on the region of its growth and the particular species of tree, the aroma of the agarwood distillation can be more fruity, green or animalic.
