Agarwood Oud Grading

Q: What is the common Agarwood grading?

A: Regarding our experience in Agarwood Trade, around 20 years ago and until the year of 1997, the highest Agarwood grade is super, super is the Top quality, but now, since the Agarwood limited, some trader put some grade that we explain below:

1st grade is Double Super

This Agarwood must sink, black, oily, heavy like asphalt, etc.

2nd grade is King Super

3rd grade is Super

4th grade is A

5th grade is AB (mix A and B)

That grade is commonly sell as chips to burn, there is also B and C grade, but it is seldom sell as chips.

We many times asked about AA grade Agarwood or AAA grade or AAAA grade Agarwood chips, as long as our experience and national Agarwood standard grade in Indonesia and International, those AA, AAA, AAAA grade I have never know, where those grade from.

Muattaq Oud Oil

We need to analyze, how Agarwood Oil could have a better smell and thick?

One expert from German said that the Agarwood smell came from bacteria in the Agarwood chips.

When we distill Agarwood Chips and heat it more then 100 Celsius just said 200 Celsius the oil scent will be Burnt, why the oil scent is burnt???, because the bacteria in the Agarwood chips is die, not all die but almost all, that is why the Agarwood oil scent is burnt.

and when you distill Agarwood chips under the heat 100 Celsius you will find a very nice scent, because the bacteria is still life, longer you keep the bacteria life on the Agarwood oil it will make the smell of Agarwood oil stronger and better.

if the bacteria live, it will make the bacteria develop and make the scent of the Agarwood oil better, nice color and thicker, the bacteria will be stronger and the scent will be better.

Now people say Aged oil, keep the oil in 3 months or 1 or 3,4,5 years, for example it is almost impossible if there is a family said that they feed their baby every day and the baby could walk in 4 months.

IT is impossible to keep the Agarwood oil in few years and you said it is Muattaq Oud Oil or Tsaqel Agarwood Oil

Techniques Of Burning Oud

Q: How do I burn wood aloes wood (agarwood)?

A: Actually there is no special way to burn aloes wood (agarwood) you only needs charcoal that have been burnt until it is red, then place the Agarwood over the charcoal which would you burn.

But there is also a unique way, some people I met, do something else in burning aloes wood (agarwood), there is little difference, that is, before the aloes wood (agarwood) is placed above the charcoal, they put aloes wood (agarwood) into their mouths, suck the small chips of aloeswood that they will burn, not a big piece of aloes wood (agarwood), the point is, they dampen the aloes wood with saliva, so that if you burn it over charcoal, then the wood will burned slightly – by little, burn longer than wood that has not dampened.

Pure or Unpure Agarwood Oil

Q: How can we distinguish pure Agarwood Oil?

A: From some of distiller and expert of oud / Agarwood I meet in my country, and my experience in Agarwood oil, they still can not 100 % sure even 70% sure to distinguish pure Agarwood oil, why? Because there is oil that could mix with Agarwood oil, and I hear from other expert even you test with alcohol. The purity still presumption.

The First, maybe we learn, what pure Agarwood oil characteristic is, in generally. If we know pure oil, little bit we could know un pure oil.

Agarwood oil must be thin or thick, thin not like water and thick not like paste, when you scrub in your hand, the oil will gone, not leave a trace, the scent is depending from its region, it almost remain on hand from 5 hours more.

Aged Oud Oil

Q: what is Mua’ttaq Agarwood oil?

A: Mua’ttaq (Mim, A’in, Ta, Qof) in Arabic letter, it means Aged, Mua’ttaq Agarwood oil mean Agarwood oil that have been Aged (keep) for a long time.

Q: What is Tsaqil (Tsaqeel) Agarwood Oil – Tsaqil (Tsaqeel) Oud Oil

A: in Arabic Langguage Tsaqil means Heavy, if you found this word in Agarwood it is mean the Agarwood Oil is thick.

You could ask other distiller to compare, regarding this Agarwood oil, this Agarwood oil is “Ajib” Weird.

To make the Agarwood Oil Aged, Muattaq (old),

the way I know is only keep the Agarwood oil in its bottle, not to dry it and not to open the bottle, put the Agarwood oil under the sun light is only to dry the oil after distillation process, dry under the sunlight depending to water contain in the oil, take about 3-5 days, but sometimes people use a high lamp like 200 watt, and put the Agarwood oil under that lamp, to make the oil save from the dust. And some distiller dry it not using sunlight, only dries it in a room by open the bottle of the Agarwood oil.

Thickness actually came from the material, if a high material the oil will be thicker, if the Agarwood oil material from middle grade the oil will be thin, 3 month it is too young to make thicker Agarwood oil.

Keep it in the bottle make the Agarwood oil better, do not open on air, the scent will be week, there is no a big different change if only keep the oil for 3 months, sometime people influence by his feeling, our brain is influence with situation that we made, just say, keep it in the dark place, until 3 months, when we smell it we feel then the change is happen to that oil, I am not agree with that, situation change our sense of smell.

The condition that we make cheats us.

Keep the oil old make the oil better, thick, and better scent? The answer is Yes, but not for 3-4 month, it has no different, as long as a I know if you keep for only 3 months.

I think 10 years and more then 10 year to make the oil different, I have put the oil few month or one year but it has no different. Wallahhu A’alam
