Description and usage notes:

From Givaudan: “Odor: Woody, Ambery, Olibanum. Use: Agarwood is a classical material used in perfumery. When this wood is infected by fungi, it develops dark streaks charged with an odouriferous oleoresin. The darkest grade, black or true agar, resembles black stone because of the intense impregnation of oil. This resin is highly valuable due to its rich, complex, powerful, woody-ambery scent. It is however an extremely expensive material that is difficult to find. Black Agar Givco is a new base reflecting the typical odour of the black resin of agarwoood. This complex, powerful formulation with a resinous character brings together olibanum and balsamic/oriental notes.”

    This is one of the most beautiful materials I’ve tried, besides the Oud Synth from Firmenich. I’m not acquainted with real oudh, (hopefully!) but this one is deep, complex, lush, woody, resinous in a nice way, definitely less smoky than the Firmenich one, slightly fruity and it has some reminiscences to Cashmeran, traces I would say, but it is there… Sheer Beauty.
