It is only called Oud and has aromatic qualities when a trunk or part of it has produced (in a process that lasts for years) a sufficient quantity of a highly aromatic oily resin to impregnate the wood. The process only occurs as a defense against attacks. The Oud It has been used by Asian cultures since time immemorial, Chinese, Arab, Japanese and Indian traditions made use of its essence for a fairly heterogeneous variety of activities: incense making, religious offerings and perfume preparation. The transformation of healthy Aquilaria wood into Oud, occurs when a part of the tree (root, trunk or branch) becomes infected, slowly the infected part begins to secrete the coveted resin, which makes the wood darker and harder.Oud growers cut only the infected parts, hoping the tree will not die and produce more resinous wood. The first aspect that affects the quality of the Oud is the age of the trees, since the older they are, the more resin they have, but it is also of better quality, presenting deeper and more complex aromas. The best pure Oud oils come from trees that are over 100 years old. Another key aspect is the number of times the wood has had to be distilled to extract the oil. The one that comes from the first distillation is the best. Finally, once the oil has been obtained, it improves over the years. Oudh wood has received many names. Cantonese Chinese (Hong Kong) : "Cham Heong". India (Hindu): "Agar" or "aguru", but also "agor" or "agoro" in Bengal. Japan: commonly called "jinko" or "jinkoh"?? Used for Highest Grade (Best Quality) Designer. Arab and Muslim countries: "Oud" or "oodh"??? Anglo-Saxon and Western countries: "eagle wood" or "lignum aquila" (eagle wood), "agila wood" (akila wood), "aloes wood" or "lignum aloès" (aloe wood), " agarwood" (akila wood) agar, "gaharu", "agila" (akila).

There are 4 types of families of trees that give Oudh.

Euphorbiaceae (Euphorbiacaee in Latin) : found mainly in the tropics.
However, the trees of the genus aquilaria are the most used for the production of agarwood, since they are easier to cultivate and the quality of their resin is one of the highest. Different levels of Oudh quality.
The level of quality of agarwood is called "grade" and its classification varies depending on its origin. The quality is due to the species of the tree, the climate, the quality of the soil, the various attacks suffered by the wood and its level, and the time during which the wood will secrete resin in order to care for itself. Due to the lack of uniformity of standards and regulations at the international level, the evaluation of the quality of Oudh wood remains extremely complex.Therefore, its evaluation depends mainly on the experience and knowledge of industry members. Agarwood grade levels differ between countries of production. Malaysia (6 grade levels - Higher to Lower): "Double super" and "Super", "A", "B", "C" and "D". Indonesia (4 grade levels - Higher to Lower) : "Super A", "Super B", "Super C" and "Sabak".
