Welcome all to our first official distillation of Incense grade Sri Lankan oil.
Our first enterprise in to Walla Patta oil resulted in 2 excellent contributions to the oud community. The brilliant green Adhirijaya which was a steam distillation, captured the sparkling bright notes of the wood, menthol sweet honey framed with the backdrop of Kinam. Rajakiya was a Hydro distilled oil cooked slowly to try and release a maximum array of compounds, resulting in a much richer deeper oil.
Opening notes of Red grape, fresh Guava, freshly sliced rosebud and a hint of musk and oodles of camphor. The scent soon transports one to a hot humid jungle, close your eyes and you can almost hear the birds chirping, clicking of insects and then almost at a sudden a green crystalline note appears. Becoming ever sweeter and mintier the oil plays around with this profile for a while; the dry down then introducing you back to the guava but now much sweeter. This is where the spices come to life, heaps of Saffron, Cinnamon, a smattering of black pepper and cardamom.
If you enjoy the beauty of Gyrinops from Papua, or one of the other Indonesian Islands or perhaps even Philippines then this is one for you. There is something intrinsically different however, the sweet spiciness from this ancient land has its own characteristic.
We have released this oil within a couple of weeks of distillation. The oil will change within the next few weeks, months and years; allowing you to enjoy the various stages it goes through and like a baby, seeing how it grows up with all its idiosyncrasies in tow! We look forward to your feedback.
