Scented Mountain cultivated agarwood products are different. Based on research from scientific investigations carried out over more than a decade by the Agarwood Research Project at the University of Minnesota in cooperation with the Rainforest Project Foundation, methods to cultivated agarwood have been developed and it can now be produced in a sustainable way in plantation grown trees. These trees are farmed in the mountains of southern Vietnam and products from them will provide a new economy for poor rural people. Scented Mountain is proud to offer fine cultivated agarwood products for you to enjoy with peace of mind knowing it is certified as grown from sustainable plantations.
Only Pure Agarwood
All Scented Mountain incense contains only pure agarwood. The aroma is subtle and has no strong perfume-like smell often associated with mixed blends of incense. For thousands of years people have enjoyed the natural scent of agarwood and it has been loved so much by so many that most old growth trees have been cut to harvest the resinous wood. The very few remaining trees are now protected in most countries. We are pleased to make this wonderful incense available to everyone and you can be assured that no endangered forest trees are used. Instead plantation or home garden grown trees produce this agarwood and CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) permits have been issued for all our products.
