Oudh, oud, agarwood
Oudh is a fascinating type of wood extracted from the tropical tree Agar Aquilaria. Because the Aquilaria is so rare and the process of resin formation and harvesting so complex, Oudh is one of the most precious types of woods in the world.
The most commonly used name is the Arabic Oudh or Oud. In English, the term agarwood is used, which originates from Latin. Other Latin based names include: aquilaria, agar, aloewood, and agalocha. In Japanese it is referred to as jinko or kyara.
