Borneo Essence by Imperial Oud belongs to the Zenith range or collection. “The ‘Zenith Collection’ contains oils of only wild origin and of superior distillation techniques. We have wild oils for sale in our normal range but the Zenith oils will have something that sets them apart. Via our long-standing relationships with distillers we have access to custom distillations of Agarwood oil. These oils are unique, truly ‘one-offs’ so will be available only in small batches. ” — A note by the brand.
This Oud is different from the Malinau aroma you may be used to. Much spicer and greener it opens with a burst of ground Clove, Cardamom, and black Pepper. There’s a rich woodiness, a touch of cedar interplaying with a jungle green.
