You have a unique opportunity. When I was in high school (late 1980s) my mother worked for an international company. A visitor from India gave her two ballpoint pens made of pure sandalwood, which she passed along to me. For the Indian visitors, they were some cheap corporate gifts, but I have never seen anything like them before or since. Unfortunately, in the ensuing years, I lost both of them.
I would ask your friend to keep his eyes, ears and (especially) nose open. He will have opportunities to find fragrances that no one else in the western world will ever have access to.
