About Us

Constant improvement for 25 years (since 1996 )

Behind each Agarwood product of Grandawood, there is an experience of 25 years.

In 1996, our grandparents began planting the very first Aquilaria trees in Dong Xoai Binh Phuoc Vietnam. Fast forward today, along with our partners, we have nearly 1 million trees combined.

We have been applying new technologies to these plantations. Our method of creating Agarwood has changed, but our aim of producing quality Agarwood remain unaltered.

We worked with experienced horticulturists to ensure our Aquilaria trees are strong enough before transforming them into Agarwood.

Purity is non-negotiable. At Grandawood, all of our agarwood oil is "cooked" in a well-controlled environment. Then we filter and cure them. Only then, we age them for another month before releasing them in the market, just to ensure the woodiness they have to offer that many perfumers love.

Order some Agarwood in the market place; sometimes, you may get a fake one. But if you get Grandawood Agarwood, you know that you are in right hand.

You may hear it from our clients

"If it is Grandawood, it is good Agarwood".

    Our story

    Decades ago, wild Agarwood was quite abundant, and it was affordable for everyone literally. However, only wealthy people use and appreciate their royal scent.

    Agarwood incense was traditionally made with care, mainly hand-crafted with pure oud powder bound with white wood. These incenses are offered on special occasion only, for example, Buddhist lectures.

    With recent development in incense making, there are a lot of misleading on the product label, claimed to be "pure Agarwood incense", sold for $4 for ten sticks with a burn time of 10 minutes per stick. For your information, this $4 retail pack is even below our manufacture cost. To an extent, we bought several of these packs and needless to say, they are not up to the standard. 

    Meanwhile, wild Agarwood was over-harvested and hunters are putting their lives at risk. In an attempt to preserve wild Aquilaria species, some countries make it illegal to hunt while some will provide hunters certain annual quota

    Many triads were fighting for this hunting right, even mercilessly killed to steal this precious wood. In several countries, wild Agarwood hunters might be shot dead on the spot (click here)

    Seeing these hunting activities hurting nature, our family decided to invest in these trees, growing them from wild seed.


    From the above to mature tree, it takes ten years in circa before wounding the tree to create Agarwood.

    (In Vietnam, we are trading as Evergreen Forest)


    We have our plantation site, incense making and oil distillation facility.

    Finally, after decades of hard work, it is time to harvest our sustainable tree, supplying Oud chip, distilling our Oud oil for the market. Consumers have been asking us: Is your Oud oil pure? YES, how do we know? Because we grow, distil and manufacture it with pride

    There are many different scent profile from Oud. Depending on the species (Aquilaria Crassna, Malaccensis, ext), the oil where they grow, the parts of the tree (branches, roots, heartwood), distillation method, apparatus (steel, copper), each Oud is different. Especially with wild Oud, as each tree is unique, there is hardly the same fragrance from two separate batches. With cultivated Oud? Each plantation offers different oil, distillation method as well as the wounding technique (agarwood creation), are confidential, making OUD OIL different again. 

    The advantage of cultivated Oud is similar scent profile could be achieved in large quantity, making it suitable for commercial products.
    At Grandawood Agarwood, we offer you several different Oud Oil and will increase in variety continuously.

    Our Oud is a complete fragrance by itself because it contains multiple high volatiles compounds. Some people want to enjoy it singly while others would like to have it blended in different essential oil. We welcome you to our oud journey.
