Empty your mind, and prepare yourself
for one of the most unusual oudventures you'll ever embark on.
Yatanar was extracted using the latest technology copper and
glass distillation equipment. Although the quality of the raw material
as well as the nature of the apparatus had a clear impact on the aroma,
this oil primarily represents the impressive results of the new techniques used for crafting Agar
Aura oud oils.
almost doesn't smell like oud. It is the collection of only the most
pristine fractions of the agarwood extract, and when you smell it you
might almost think its a combination of various botanicals blended into
a fine perfume.
And that's not just a reference to the color.
The opening is a combination of cool transparency (think mountain air),
clean woodiness, and a soft vanillic sweetness. A delicate orange
blossom note gives the oil a fresh vibe. As the oil develops on your
skin, the crisp woody notes become warmer and creamier. Hints of
cinnamon and sage honey become more pronounced and overlap with layers
of caramel and resinous wood, topped with clementine zest.
Yatanar and Ahmwei-Do
were distilled using identical raw materials and extraction techniques,
but two very different setups. This is your chance to explore and
discover for yourself the effects of using different apparatus on the
aroma of oud oils.

What others are saying about this product:
Just wanted to say I got the package yesterday. The Burma was an awesome choice, so much character and spice...
is such a multifaceted gem! The quality, and amazing cohesion of its
bouquet (despite so many divergent notes), are extraordinary,
especially given its age and price.
Taw-Twin Yantanar, ethereal to the max. The opening is like pure
potential...where are we going? Then it settles and it just
starts to give one color after another. Its is so light but it
has its own strength. Sometimes I am amazed at what pops out in
the atmosphere around me from wrist with just a drop of this oil.
Taw-Twin Yatanar is Oud of Spring, it has a surprising green note in
the opening, artichoke, squashed lemon rind note with perhaps touch of
galbanum. And it's herbal grassy of May fragrance, Flora's juices
overflowing, but the setting changes to Mediterranean after a while,
when spicy background and faint saltiness arrives, hints of pine trees
and marjoram. Drydown is green bittery grassy, but of a particularly
So consider one of the bottles of Taw-Twin sold. This is unlike anything I have worn before!
Wonderful progression of all the various notes! Smooth and peaceful, this oil is a true pleasure to experience.
Taw-Twin Yatanar is
unlike ouds I have tried in the past, but the features are unmistakably
oudy... it is very sweet in a way I associate with Cambodi or Hindi
ouds, but also contains a lighter, cooler woodiness that stops short of
being as ethereal as the woody note in Borneo ouds, but it is similar.
At it's heart there is the unmistakable oud note. I am thinking the
woodiness in this oud is made softer and creamier by virtue of the
copper still used, while I have not tried it's twin, Ahmwei-do, I
imagine that distillation would trade some of the soft and creamy
woodiness for a more ethereal and aggressive woody note. This smells
very much like the oud used in Ariya as well, and is more like a
composed perfume than most other ouds I have tried by virtue of having
scent components that are a bit at odds with one another, it does not
seem like the sweet and woody aspect of this oud could possible come
from the same source! This oud has very good lasting power, it takes at
least 6 hours to go through it's major transformations and then lingers
for many hours after with a sweet woody drydown.
Just got a snifter of those two samples and wow that oud oil is a
whole new direction.goodness ! thats a lot of funk in the trunk .the
orange blossom had a bitter almondy edge I really love..
Really awesome oil, so rich and complex.. Nice color too - easily the lightest colored oil in my collection..
