Agarwood, is a resinous wood that forms when Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees are infected with mould. Before the wood is infected, it is pale and light-coloured. As the infection progresses, the tree produces a dark aromatic resin. The wood which is resin-embedded is commonly called agarwood. The wood is valued for its unique fragrance. Thus, it is used for perfumes and incense.
