Buddha Wood Essential Oil (4 Year Aged)

Adam Michael has this to say ”Having traded Buddha Wood essential oil on and off for about 15 years now, I have formed a conclusion that aging is paramount if you want a good bottle of Buddha Wood E.O.

Fresh e.o batches more times than not, from the usual Australian suspects – in fact all of them – always smell foul to my nose with this raw meat smoky undertone (like crude Guaiac but worse) which in turn paints a picture in my mind of being trapped inside a slaughterhouse. So fresh batches are a big no no for me, and I only seek out aged buddha wood essential oil.

What I have here is 4 years aged – produced in 2019 – and the aroma profile is mellowed throughout and a classic base note. This means on strip, or skin, don’t expect huge plumes of anything, it’s not happening, unless you are burning this – in which case that’s an entirely different story. In fact, for others who like to burn naturals whilst meditating, this buddha wood is really calming, maybe second or third on my play list after Indian sandalwood and palo santo.

The aroma of this buddha wood essential oil here has a soft creamy woods base with dreamy floral boozy tonalities that remind me of our oakwood co2 offerings – minus the power and depth unfortunately. I also detect a feminine take on sandalwood – so clean, pretty and free of any animalic engine, hence limited life span – mixed with vanilla ice cream and sweet bread. Dry down on strip is fatty woody floral chocolate orientated, possibly with some trace liquorice and raisin qualities.

Within perfumery, the uses here are quite vast, pairing well with sandalwoods, Siam, incense wood, Cedarwood deodora and Virginia varieties, all orris aromatics but especially those that are more powdery – musky woody orientated. Also works well with vanilla absolutes, gallica rose absolute, tuberose, rose absolutes and countless other aromatics. Generally, of good fixative value and useful for compositions of an incense, soft woody, floral and sacred woody nature. Amber tan in colour, of a pourable viscosity and produced via hydro distillation of wild-sourced material.”
