Borneo agarwood oils are the brightest and most cheerful of ouds. They’re also generally the last thing you would reach for when you are looking for a deep, dark, woody oud.
Breaking all rules, Borneo Noir is the absolute deepest, darkest Borneo oud you are likely to ever experience.
The setting is Samarinda, East Borneo island. My distiller sits tired and worn out, as I type. But he is happy.
Given the current dismal state of the agarwood world and the difficulty of sourcing good quality raw materials for distillation, after many discussions, my distiller and I agreed that we will have to go the extra mile to source truly fabulous raw materials.
