2017 has been a very good year for our team and we are very
forturnate to meet some very knowledgeble friends, mentors and
customers connecting us through the beautiful scent of agarwood.
For 2018, we will be releasing small quantities of
special oud , from both internally and sourced from partners in
this trade. It is a way saying thank you to our supporters.
On the list, we will first launch our West Malaysia tiger oud

usual Malaysia agarwood which comes from Aquila Malacensis and
Aquila Hirta, Tigerwood or sometimes people refer it to Aquila

Well, as long as you like the smell of any pieces of agarwood,
it can be your "own version" of Kynam or Kyara.
are looking at some bracelet materials with very scent under
room temperature and more "hardy" than those resin rich
bracelet, you can't go wrong with tigerwood, which usually sits
quite comfortably in the mid range and some high quality ones
which can exceed 30g on a 16mm size bracelet.
