Oud Hindi Super (India)

Agarwood is reputed to be the most expensive wood in the world. There are many names for the resinous, fragrant heartwood produced primarily by trees in the genus Aquilaria. Most commonly, the resin is known as agarwood, aloeswood, eaglewood, gaharu, agalocha or oudh (In Arabic)

Agarwood has been used to make high quality incense since centuries. The people describe its smell as "a sweet, deep but balanced fragrance" and use it in festive celebrations, and so do Arabian, Indian and Japanese people. Agarwood is also part of many traditional pharmacopoeias, dating back to medieval times and Chinese doctors still prescribe it for colds and disgestion problem. Oil extracted from agarwood is used in Arabian countries as a perfume.

Agarwood or oudh forms as a reaction to fungal or bacterial attack. Trees, ocassionally become infected with a parasite mould secrete a fragrant, protective oil into wounded areas (roots, branches or sections of the trunk), which gradually become harder and dark brown to black. The heartwood (central part of a tree, which is darker in color than the sapwood) is relatively light and pale color before infection. Normally harvesters would cut only the infected parts in the hope that the tree would produce more of this resinous wood.
 
Aquilaria species that produce agarwood are found throughout Asia, while occur naturally in South and Southeast Asia. The Indian sub-continent was the main source of agarwood for many centuries but as trees became scarce in the middle of the twentieth century, extraction intensified in Indochina. Later on it was extended to Indonesia and Malaysia. Today Agarwood plantations exist in a number of countries, including Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Laos, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Thailand and Vietnam.

It can grow on a wide range of soils, including poor sandy soil. Seedlings of most species establish best in shady, moist conditions, but large adult trees sometimes become emergent in the forest and can withstand full sun. Some species can be found growing on steep, rocky, exposed slopes, and in regions that experience a hot, dry season. The trees grow to 6-20 m tall. At least fifteen species of Aquilaria trees are known to produce Agarwood.

 

Bakhoor generally refers to processed incense which may contain Oud/agarwood in some form or the other, but frequently do not. If Oud/agarwood is used in the bakhoor, the agarwood is generally of a less grade or is the spent agarwood from which Oud oil has. Bakhoor are woodchips that have been soaked in perfumed oil which releases an exotic fragrance in your home upon being burned.

Oud or agarwood is one of the most popular scents on the market today. Oud is said to be the most expensive wood in the world; oud oil's value is estimated to be 1.5 times the value of gold, and it is sometimes referred to as 'liquid gold'. Rich and powerful, oud's sweet, woody scent is instantly recognisable.

The resin-soaked wood or Agarwood and the oil distilled from it are known as Oud! The reason why Oud is so expensive is because of its rarity. Less than 2% of wild agar trees produce it. Some experts claim that the best Oud comes from the oldest trees, which are even scarcer.

To burn bakhoor, you will need following items from Parfum.ae

  1. Bakhoor
  2. Mabkhara
  3. Charcoal discs

Steps to burn bakhoor:

  1. Place charcoal disc in the mabkhara (Incense burner)
  2. Apply flame (matchstick or lighter) to the disc until you see sparks traversing the coal
  3. After a while, the disc will form some gray soot like ash over the top indicating it is hot and ready
  4. Now you can place a piece of bakhoor on top of the disc with tongs and experience your exotic bakhoor fragrance
  5. Use a little for lighter fragrance and less smoke
  6. When you are done with burning bakhoor, cover the mabkhara with a ceramic dish to extinguish the coal disc and only dispose of the coal when you are sure that it is completely cold.

The coal itself does not release smoke which is why you should use this special kind of charcoal for burning bakhoor.  The bakhoor releases rich fragrant smoke which is used to scent your house.

Please be sure to keep the mabkhara with hot coal away and out of the reach of pets and children.  Always be present to supervise.
