Our wild Indian Agarwood Absolute is an aromatic treasure trove for natural perfume and fragrance compositions. Agarwood has a complex, elegant and long lasting scent with precious wood and animalic notes. A rich base note and excellent fixative. The scent of Agarwood is sublime on its own and will add depth and sophistication to a variety of perfumery accords including wood, oriental, chypre and more. Agarwood or oud is one of the most revered incenses of the East. Used by royalty and the affluent for good luck, meditation, and purifying the mind and body. Agarwood is becoming more popular in the West with many designer perfume houses releasing oud based fragrances.
