Indian oud oil (or agarwood oil /دهن العود in arabic) and oud wood (or agarwood chips /沉香 in chinese) is well known amongst the oud lovers, connoisseurs, collectors for its unique fragrance which differentiates it from the oud found in other parts of the world. It is obtained from the Agar tree endemic to India (Aquilaria Agallocha / Aquilaria Malaccensis) that grows in Assam and other north eastern states of India like Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Meghalaya. In fact, agarwood tree is believed to have originated from Assam, India.
Indicana Oud brings you this rich, pure and pristine oud that is mystical, tantalising, alluring and intoxicating, so diverse and complex that words fail to capture its continuously evolving aroma. It develops a very unique, personal and intimate relationship with every person who smells it and wears it.
Indian agarwood oil is soft and warm and stands out with its tangy, animalic odour to start with and later unfolds and matures with the smell of woods, trees, grass, rain forests, earth, fruits and flowers, resins, herbs and spices each deeply intertwined into each other and takes you to different, ancient world. It is often said that love for Indian agarwood oil is an acquired taste.

"This was my first experience with oud, after having personally known Indicana Oud to be stocking the original oil.
I'm absolutely happy. Shipping was fast, and presentation was elegant in the form of a vintage-design bottle encased in a small wooden box.
The scent is strong, and not only lingers on as the day progresses, but seems to transform itself. Just a tiny drop is enough to send the scent wafting across your room. I've been reading about the complexity of the tones brought in by oud, and wasn't surprised when I tried this oil. It felt like being transported into a dense woodland, to put it simply.
If you're looking for oud, go for Indicana Oud. They've got the real deal."

We, at Indicana Oud, are fully committed to the preservation and protection of Agarwood trees and are involved in activities such as planting back more saplings and trees of Agarwood in its natural habitat of North East India than we utilize for our production. Agarwood trees in India have been graded as an endangered species by CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) after years of uncontrolled cutting because of its huge demand in the international market, especially Middle East, which eventually almost led to its extinction. Indicana Oud is in full compliance with the international guidelines ensuring our future generations will enjoy oud just as we do.
