Oudimentary presents our proprietary, introductory oud oil blend. An oud experience for every day casual wear. Includes oud from Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand (Aged 10 years) blended to create the perfect winter scent. While supplies last! Different blend every month.
After a long hiatus, Oudimentary is happy to have a Malaysian oil back on its roster! We picked this one up on our last buying trip in South East Asia, and are happy to add it to our ever growing list of our oils.
Hailing from the border between Malaysia and Thailand, on the Northeastern most part of the Malaysian peninsula, our Malaysian Premier is a unique example of a Malaysian oil with sweet notes more common to Cambodian oils. Aged over a decade, wild harvested.
The initial hit is subdued spice with main notes of cinnamon and tamarind. The berry notes begin soon after, and continue, softening into a nice cherry tobacco and sweet wood dry down.
Oudify your life with some of our Malaysian Premier!
Oudimentary Essentials Set

We are proud to present our first Vietnamese oil in over 5 years, Vietnam Super. This limited edition release is a fantastic starter for the uninitiated in oils from this beautiful S.E. Asian country.
With a scent profile common to Southern Vietnam, our Vietnam Super offers sharp top notes that give way to warm green/earthy base-notes reminiscent of fresh cut oak, sweetgrass, and fresh rain, which last for several hours. Next think burning firewood and smoldering campfire caught by your nose on a crisp Autumn evening. The dry down rounds out and a slight whiff of sweetness begins to emerge. Medium sillage. Stunning and a great daily wearer.
Notes: Green, wood, herbs, pine
Tarakan Island is located off the coast of East Kalimantan in Indonesia close to the Malaysian border. The majority of the island is covered in mangrove swamps, which happen to be prime growing ground for gaharu. Some of the most unrivaled Indonesian woods and oils come from the wild-harvested trees from Tarakan, and in our indomitable search for the finest oils in the world, Oudimentary unearthed a lovely batch for your pleasure at a mid-range price.
Tarakan oils have less sweet notes than our Cambodi and Thai oils. Think along the lines of a morning walk through the rainforests of Borneo—as you walk, dew drips, birds call, and the shade of the jungle trees invites you. Continuing on, you smell a fresh, distinct sharpness, which slowly gives way to deeper jungle air, earth and organic life. As you become more aware of your surroundings, notes of pine and herbs begin to manifest. Long lasting, unique.
In this particular batch, sharp, brilliant top notes give way to a green, woody bouquet. Available in limited quantities!
Notes: Grass, leather, wood, moss
Oudimentary’s Merauke is as rustic as a good Papuan oil should be, while at the same time having a more refined, smoother edge than your average oil from this region. Our reintroduction of Merauke makes a significant inclusion to the Oudimentary oil roster, and rounds out our East Indonesian/Papuan catalog. Merauke offers a similar profile as our Tarakan oil with a slightly more buttery, rounder base. Notes of leather prevalent. Very much a “green” smelling oud oil (think jungle, rain), less berry and burnt caramel notes which are common in our Cambodi or Thai oils. A complex and wonderful find, we are happy to welcome Merauke back!
Available in limited quantities!

Oudimentary's Private Reserve Cambodi has become renown amongst connoisseurs worldwide for it's subtle notes that only age can bring. From wild, aged Aquilaria Malaccencis wood, this oud oil has been marinating for over 15 years. It's common for agarwood adepts to have several bottles stashed away for years (or decades) at a time, patiently waiting for the alchemical process to turn that simple oud oil into an immutable, inextinguishable, heavenly nectar. Oudimentary, took that journey for you, so you can time travel straight to the funk. With all the beauty you'd expect from a classic Cambodi oud oil plus base notes of forest floor, mahogany and dried berry. Top notes indicate dried apricot, pipe tobacco, black berries. It is pure bottled subtlety. Tenacious with medium sillage.
Notes: Blackberry, pipe tobacco, teakwood, dried fruit
There are precious moments in the world of Oud oil that come once in a lifetime. This is one of those moments.
During a recent sourcing trip to Southeast Asia, we had the great fortune of acquiring this Aged Wild Cambodian Oud Oil.This jewel has been increasing in complexity, depth and funk year after year for two decades. Both the quality of oud wood from which this oud oil was extracted, and the fire based extraction are increasingly rare, creating a scent from yesteryear to dazzle your mind and awaken your soul. The blackberry and pipe tobacco top notes and a bright grassy middle note give way to a teak wood and dried fruit base. Don’t sleep on this rare find. We know you will love it as much as we do, and hope you will buy one to save for your progeny……
Royal Aged Thai
Notes: Berry, leather, amber
What a score! On our last acquisition trip, we uncovered a very exciting jewel from one of our distillers, and we’ve named it Royal Aged Thai. This new addition to our oud oil roster has been bottle-aged for over ten years, and is one of the finest oud oils we have ever seen. Hailing from Trat, Thailand, this syrupy, thick, oud oil has some of the closest notes we have found to match the much-depleted Cambodi oud oil market (Trat Province borders on Cambodia). Our Royal Aged Thai offers fruity top notes, a sweet dry-down, and leather notes throughout its arc. There is also an every so slight whiff of vanilla or amber, which hovers below the surface. Low animalic accord with this one, and its much closer to the Cambodi oud oils we were seeing over a decade ago, which we may never see again. Grab this soon to be historic oud oil before it’s gone!
