If you follow the Ayeyarwady River from its delta in the Indian Ocean to its beginnings in Burma’s Mountainous Kachin State, you will find an inhospitable land filled with tribal peoples, warlords, dense jungles and… you guessed it. Gaharu. Aloeswood. Oud. Call it what you want. Beautiful and bubbling. This Burmese regular is an excellent example of a forest oud wood from this region. From the Northern Burmese-Thai border. Nutty, peppery, with hints of spice and caramel. Ends with a heady, chocolaty finish. Don’t miss out, oud-enthusiasts!
Notes: Grass, wood, damp stone, smoke, hot cocoa powder
If you haven’t used any East Indonesian oud woods before, you are in for a real treat. Imagine yourself outdoors and sitting around a campfire or walking through the forest just after its rained. The species is Gyrinops rather than the usual Aquilaria of mainland South East Asia. This Gyrinops is distinct and offers less spice and brings a grassy sweetness instead. Great choice for fumigation of clothes, especially paired with one of our Indonesian oud oils. An excellent oud wood at a great price.
This resin, known as al-Hojari, is one of the highest qualities available in this famed olibanum-producing country. It is from the mountainous Dhofar region, which is known for its high-scented olibanum because of its arid climate and inhospitable terrain. It is under these circumstances that the resin production is at its best.
Our al-Hojari frankincense has all of the classic balsam-citrus notes one would expect from olibanum of this quality, without any of the harsher tones which often come with inferior olibanum.
Embrace the ancient today.
