Description of Siamwood Oil

Originally introduced by French merchants importing material from what was previously known as Indochina, Siamwood Oil is steam-distilled from the wood shavings of Fokienia hodginsii trees. Also known as “Siam Wood Oil,” the material’s aroma is woody and balsamic, with a pleasant top note reminiscent of cedarwood. Siamwood also retains a unique floral nuance, eventually transitioning into a clean and woody drydown. Siamwood oil is most commonly used as a fixative ingredient within perfumery, where it imparts a woody and “natural” odor to pine-based fragrances, particularly those that incorporate Texas or East African cedarwood.
