Cosa farete

Fall in love with the aroma of the worlds finest Oud and Agarwood, a natural forest aromatic revered as perfume, incense, medicine, and sacrament, across cultures and through the ages. Ho Chi Minh City is a Mecca for Oud and Agarwood products, Vietnam forests being a source of some of the finest wild agarwood in the world. Let me guide you deep into the mystery of this most complex and alluring of natural scents; where it comes from, how its produced, how to best enjoy it, and how to avoid excessive pricing and adulteration. From the Japanese art of 'Kodo' or the "way of scent" to the use of agarwood in the royal apothecary and the use of Agarwood as a Buddhist sacrament, you'll learn some of the history and culture of this intriguing commodity. Oud essential oil, a natural perfume oil from Agarwood, is an olfactory puzzle box for the discerning aromatic aficionado, a scent-journey as nuanced as any exploration of food or wine; revealing almost unimaginable complexity, and insight into the range of culture, terroir, and spiritual tradition associated with this rare luxury. Come with me for an inside look into the spirit of Oud and Agarwood. We will sample some of the best in the world, learn how to best immerse oneself into this journey of scent, visit wholesalers and retailers, and receive guidance and advice you should you wish to make purchases.
