Al-Beruni

Pure and artisanal Assam oud oil or agarwood oil from upper Assam region. This oud oil was distilled in the copper pot after being soaked for more than two weeks. Distilled in early 2017, the oil is now more than 3 years old which has aged very well.

Description: The top note is citrusy and spicy with sweet charge of hay. The middle note is woody, musky and cheesy. The dry down is woody, soft hay and forest vibes.

This agarwood oil has been named after Abū Rayḥān Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad Al-Berūnī (4 September 973 – 9 December 1048) who was an Iranian scholar and polymath from Khwarezm — a region which encompasses modern-day western Uzbekistan , and northern Turkmenistan. Al-Beruni is regarded as one of the greatest scholars of the medieval Islamic era and was well versed in phsics, mathematics, astronomy and natural sciences, and also distinguished himself as a historian, chronologist and linguist. He spent a large part of his life in Ghazni in modern-day Afghanistan, capital of the Ghaznavid dynasty, which was based in what is now central-eastern Afghanistan. In 1017 he traveled to the India and South Asia and authored a study of Indian culture (Tahqiq ma li-l-hind...). He was given the title "founder of Indology".
