Been burning some slivers of this wood these past few days. This was the heartwood of a log I got back in the late 90’s. Origin unknown, this is some fine oud if I had to guess, Malaysia or Borneo. Fragrant at room temp it has a sweet honey-like aroma with a musk and sandalwood like undertone (can’t think of better adjectives). Heated, it has rich sweet and mineral notes at first, shifting to a sweet deep “oudiness” and finally sweet vanillin notes at the end. The large piece is 21 grams, solid resin all the way through. I left a small amount of the surroundings lighter wood on the outside because the grain and knot are quite beautiful where it split. Also have a bunch of the lighter wood that surrounded this, which is also large chunks but maybe is half as resinated as the darker heart pieces.

At the time I got this things felt different for sure. Pretty much the only English language info on the web that I was aware of about agarwood and such was the material published by Baieido USA and at a yahoo group called “Alice’s Restaurant” hosted by the us Baieido representative David Oller. It was not easy to find anything for a noob with no connections.
