NOT DANGEROUS GOODS




Agar Oud is the newest addition to our ever-growing family of Accords.
This lovely accord is a dark, rich and sensual oil that is reminiscent of the highly sought after resinous wood found in the heartwood of aquilaria tree. Unfortunately, this natural aromatic resin is extremely difficult to acquire and is one of the most expensive natural raw materials in the world. Therefore, scientists have worked exceptionally hard to discover the right aromatic chemical structures that can be blended together to create one of a kind accords.
Creating Perfume has created several different trials in pursuit of bringing to you the most luscious and true to nature's scent Agar Oud in this popular accord. 
It's an excellent base ingredient with long-lasting staying power that dries down to a soft woody character that lasts for hours. 
We hope you enjoy this well-loved accord as much as we do!
Upon occasion, the formulas may change if a product used in the formulation becomes unavailable or the restrictions change.

Beautiful!
RRUGGER (New York, NY) 1/13/2020 2:48 PM
Sharp, complex and diffusive, this is a great rendition of Oud, in a resinous, green, fresh direction, but also with Tobacco and Aged Patchouli aspects. It works wonderfully with Sandalwood and Tonka Bean, it also blends very well with red florals like Rose, Geranium and Carnation. I blended it with Shangralide, which added some creaminess and made it more leathery. It is not a substitute to Oud on its own, but it plays very well when blended with other materials, when one needs a recognizable Oud accord. For that, it works wonders in a blend and it only gets better with curing time, which is an intrinsic characteristic of real Oud.

Amazing!

This is one of the nicest oud accords I have come across. It has a fresh, dry woody quality, somewhat sweet. No fecal, animalic, or rotten aspects. Even the empty sample vial I have smells amazing and I can't stop sniffing it. Will be ordering this one!

Good strength, nice woodiness

Stands up to much dilution and still comes through strong. Doesn't seem to rely on overly heavy musk ingredients like some synth "oud." Thankfully this is more woody than sweet. Fresh scent, not mushroomy. Already thinking of several things this would be very nice with.

Stands on its own
Alfredo (Atlanta, GA) 8/9/2017 12:49 PM
I am always leery of accords, because I want to work with something that I can have again in case it lands in that once in a lifetime perfume creation and accords like these may come and go unless, I make them myself. I have actual Agar absolute, but have looked for a synthetic (read: more affordable, stable) version. While I am looking into Black Agar Oud, I wanted to give this accord a try. It is pretty close to the real thing, though a bit smokier/sweet/leathery, which can bring that different dimension to an Oud based perfume. I am not sure if this can replace actual Agarwood, but it can definitely stand on its own.
