  1. I wish companies were obligated to disclose when they use artificial agarwood and not the real deal. I understand that it could be applied to many other ingredients but there is no other note that serves as a pricing factor to the same extend as putting that “oud” label to a new creation.

  2. They create Western oud in laboratories far beneath the ground. The expense of drilling down so deep into the Swiss geological strata is stellar and this cost must be passed on to the end user.
