We are ecstatic with the aroma of this very rare Agarwood hydrosol, also called Oud hydrosol, artisan master distilled from Aquilaria trees in Australia. The aroma of this Agarwood hydrosol has a symphony of buttery wood over smooth amber incense notes with a nuance of sensual animalic musk. Although many hydrosols have a slightly different aroma to their essential oil counterpart, one whiff of this rarity and the earthy aroma of Oud is obvious.
One of our most discerning skin care formulation customers shared with us after receiving a sample from our second shipment, "This hydrosol is epic. It's a rich, buttery, deep aromatic musky wood. It's an exotic musk note that's tenacious and beautiful. It's simply stunning."
Consider mixing a small amount with any floral hydrosol to achieve a luxuriously scented facial or bed linen mist. The blending possibilities with Agarwood hydrosol are limitless.
This is a hydrosol that when misted on the face will leave you relishing in its extremely pleasant and calming aroma. Agarwood hydrosol is an excellent addition in any masculine or unisex scented facial product.
