The Complete Guide to Imperial Harvest Green Qinan Agarwood

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Green Qinan has a beautiful Chinese name, 绿莺歌 (Green Songbird). This is inspired by the beautiful yellow-green cross-section of the Green Qinan agarwood which resembles the Green Songbird’s stunning feathers

Historical references of the legendary green Qinan

A famed author from the Ming Dynasty wrote about the difference between Agarwood and Qinan and ranked the different categories of Qinan.

陈让 《海外逸说》

“迦南与沉香并生,沉香质坚,雕剔之如刀刮竹,迦南质软,指刻之如锥画沙,味辣有脂,嚼之粘牙。上者日莺歌绿,色如莺毛,最为难得;次日兰花结,色微绿而黑; 又次日金丝结,再次日糖结,黄色者是也;下日铁结,色黑而微坚,皆各有膏腻”

The excerpt from the book is translated as follows:

The main difference between agarwood and Qinan is hardness. Agarwood is hard and carving on Agarwood is akin to carving on a piece of bamboo. Qinan is soft and carving on Qinan is akin to painting on the sand with a cone. The scent of Qinan is refreshing and carries the permeating scent of precious Qinan resin. The texture of Qinan is chewy and sticky when ingested.

Green Qinan is the finest grade of agarwood with a colour resembling that of the beautiful feather of the Green Song Bird; it is the rarest tier of Qinan. The secondary tier would be Purple Qinan where its colour is light green and dark. The next two tiers would be the two different variants of Yellow Qinan. The entry-level tier would be Black Qinan, where its colour is black and slightly hard.

The surface of Green Qinan is dark blue-ish green – a result of the rich and dense resin infused with agarwood fibre. The interior (cross-section) of Green Qinan features a blend of yellow-green Qinan resin.

Scent Characteristics

Green Qinan emanates three heavenly tiers of distinct scent: cooling, honey-like and mastic. The three distinct scents intertwine and create a distinctive scent with every whiff – a beautiful olfactory symphony.
