We are happy to say that the wood that helped Oudimentary start an oud wood-burning revolution stateside in 2004 is back and better than ever. We couldn’t be happier.
Hailing from the Papua region of Indonesia, Oudimentary’s wild-harvested, Merauke oud wood has that classic East Indonesian kick.
If you haven’t used any East Indonesian oud woods before, you are in for a real treat. The species is Gyrinops rather than the usual Aquilaria of mainland southeast Asia. The oud wood from Gyrinops is a world away from typical Cambodi and Lao woods, with not much sweetness or usual tones of dried fruit, etc. It is distinct and offers less spice and brings a grassy sweetness instead.
Our Merauke oud wood is a much more grassy burn with a hint of firewood and an almost sweet bread-like top note.
This oud wood can be used for: Meditation, burned as a fragrance to scent space, clearing impurities from the air, creating positive energy, and a relaxing and calm environment.
We hope this keeps you grounded, supports a positive mindset, and creates a space for happiness and wellness.
