For example, the oil from Indonesia was made up predominantly of monoterpenoids with pinenes (18%) and 1,8-cineole (47%), while the Malaysian oil was characterized by sesquiterpenoids with (E)-β-farnesene (18 %) and β-bisabolene (16 %).

We find true Galangal more appealing in perfumery than Ginger or Plai because of its smooth and slightly less pungent notes that when blended with Ginger is a perfect harmonious match.
