Royal Hindi Gaf Char Oud – High Grade- Agarwood chips from Nagaland
Grade : Royal
Royal Hindi Gaf Char Agarwood is sweet, strong, full bodied oud chips. This is a rare type of agarwood mostly found in north eastern part of India.
Most oud chips are found inside the trunk of the tree, however Gaf char is normally found on the outer side of the trunk and it is carefully scooped out by the oud farmers or hunters as they are called. The pieces are very well cleaned and performs great on a cooled down charcoal or even a subtism heater or electric burner.
Royal Gaf char smells luxurious, The pieces are around 4 to 8 cms length and wide. The fragrance is sweet, strong, oudy and a client also says that it has some fruity nuances. This oud is definitely great value for money, can we used daily and is one of the best Indian – Hindi oud in our collection. When it burns you will see there is so much oil in the oud that it starts to bubble when placed on charcoal.
We are selling Oud to clients who have been using it since their childhood and all of them say that no matter which oud they try from different parts of the world, they always come back to the Indian agarwood. However it is very hard to find good untampered Indian agarwood, most of the materials found the local markets have been painted and polished to make them look high quality, simply put there is a lot of cheating, in my experience 99% have something done to it.
