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.

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!
