Ramblings on fragrances
Agarwood, also known as oud, Aoud, oodh or agar, is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees. When the tree is infected by a mold, it's immune response produces this thick rich smelling oil. Like different wines grown in different locations, oud depends on where and when it was grown. It comes from Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Phillip pines, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, and India. I believe most oud is produced in plantations of trees planted by suppliers.You
