What makes Vietnamese agarwood considered first-class?

Vietnamese agarwood has a high reputation for quality and is considered one of the best types of agarwood in the world, for the following reasons:

Rich scent:

Vietnamese agarwood has a complex and rich aroma and is much loved in perfumery and incense. It has a unique scent profile that includes sweet tones, floral elements, oud, musky grains, woods, and spices.

A high percentage of resin:

Vietnamese agarwood has a high resin content, which makes it more valuable than other types of wood. It is the resin responsible for the scent of wood and is used in the production of fine perfumes and incense.


Vietnamese agarwood is very rare, as supply far exceeds demand. This makes it a highly demanded commodity and may fetch very high prices.

Sustainable production:

The production of agarwood in Vietnam is sustainable, as it is obtained from the Aquilaria tree, a tree species that is not under threat. This means that agarwood production can continue without harming the environment or depleting natural resources.
