Adam Michael has this to say “This is a beautiful and very precious hydro distilled oud from North Malaysia (Borneo Island) that we have just added to our collection (11.07.21) and that could be summed up as being a well-polished, smooth dark wood affair with zero barnyard and plenty of incense character.
Initial opening is cresol orientated and then warm resinous nuances start coming through tinted with incense, over ripe fruit traces and a melody of dry through to slight bitter woody notes. Within the early stages I find the now warm fruit qualities start to take on a medicinal profile, in the form of a quite sweet but also astringent shape whilst somehow vaguely reminding me of smelling aged cistus oils. As time progresses the aroma is like breathing in cold mountain air to your maximum, tinged with a trace mint nuance and showcasing yet more incense in the background.
Another note to mention is Sarawak black pepper note which does clearly feature albeit entangled within a heavy, dark and somewhat incense spiced segmentation. At various intervals of this materials development, I also detect heavily aged real-leather notes that I have come to understand better across the last few years by living in Tuscany.
The notes mentioned above do seem to be the general theme and within an hour its clear that the backbone of this aroma is ultimately, spice incense through to dark resinous woody orientated.
Overall a very well-balanced super smooth oud offering that should have appeal to a broad spectrum of oud enthusiasts. This is also an enjoyable material to evaluate and wear and blends effortlessly in woody, oriental, through to sacred-wood accords.”

Translated with translate google:
It was to open the lid of the vial of oud Malaysia, and feel like a fireworks burst of smells: the velvety smoothness and powdery sweetness of fruits and flowers, the fragrant warmth of spices, the dark balsamic and hot opening of resins, wood and earth, the smell of light in a distant and delicate note of mint.
The uniqueness of the oud, that which makes it as valuable as its weight in gold, is the rich variety of its textures, the sensation of smelling life in all its complexity in a single oud. This oud doesn’t have that barnyard, stable note, which might scare off beginners. Those of us who love oud are not afraid of that corral note, but we know that that stable note (so common in Indian oud) makes oud a non-sociable aroma in the West. This oud, Malaysia 2YRS, does not have that stable note, which makes it an oud that you can wear to carry among the people, and that people marvel feeling next to a jungle, a forest and a garden, hot, dark and bright. In my oud collection I have oud from some of the most prestigious sellers in the world, and I can say that Hermitage Oils oud are at the top of my best oud, with the great advantage that at Hermitage I can buy them without customs problems that I suffer when I buy them from Eastern countries.

Really beautiful oud full of a huge spice aura and a rich myrrh resin base note ,along with strong leathery notes just like entering a very old prestigious Japanese incence shop..a true gift from nature for its complexity and it has a good longevity on my skin..

The diversity of oud genuinely never ceases to blow my mind. The personality of this Malaysian oud is intensely leathery combined with old antique woods in the best way possible. A very compelling balance between a sense of antiquity, revered ancientness, and the timeless divinity of such a rare fragrance.

Passionné de Oud, j’ai découvert ce site par hasard, j’étais plutôt habitué aux sites spécialisés dans la distillation de bois d’agar.
Et j’ai vraiment été surpris de trouver une qualité si pure et raffinée. Cette huile me fait vraiment voyager dans une forêt énormément verte et puissante mais sans aucun côté animal.
L’évolution sur peau est aussi excellente.
A tester absolument.
