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.

It is often said that love for Indian agarwood oil is an acquired taste.
Indian agarwood oil and agarwood chips have been very popular since ancient times not only for its fragrance but also for its medicinal use, health benefits and therapeutic properties. It finds its mention of praise in various historical literary works from various civilisations.
From the 9th century C.E. onwards, many travellers and geographers travelled from the lands of Arabs and Persia towards India and far-east to collect the information of these mystical, mysterious lands. After travelling a very long and tiring journey from one land to another over a period of many years, they collected a wealth of information of their languages, food habits, clothing, religion and culture, trades and businesses. Amongst many things that were reported, agarwood from these lands remained one of the most favourite and common topic of discussion for these travellers because of its unique and prestigious value it held amongst their nations and cultures.

We, at Indicana Oud, are fully committed to the preservation and protection of Agarwood trees and make sure that our distillers 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 where it holds a very special place amongst the Oud lovers, which eventually almost led to its extinction. Our partner distillers are in full compliance with the international guidelines ensuring our future generations will enjoy Oud just as we do.
