Oudimentary sources this oud wood from a supplier native to the Assam region. He divides his time between South East Asia and Assam, overseeing his farms, from which this oud wood is harvested. On our last visit with him, he presented this oud wood, saying that there was finally a farm-raised oud wood thatoffered a complex scent profile similar to other Assam wild oud woods. These are smaller pieces with an impressive amount of resin. Notes include cinnamon, chicory, roasted hazelnut, and burnt sugar amongst others. Not too sweet, as is common with Indian oud woods, but a lovely scent profile which is great for fumigation.
Notes: Leather, chicory, cherry tobacco
Our customer favorite! Thin, lightly-colored pieces, are packed with the Cambodian sweetness so popular in the oud world. With notes of leather, chicory, and cherry tobacco, this oud wood is superior for scenting clothes—and rooms—and pairs beautifully with one of our Cambodi or Thai oud oils. Sourced directly from the mountainous border region between Cambodia and Thailand.
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!
