Pure, quality oud for serious collectors of oud oils/attars.
Perhaps not for those sniffers whose only exposure to oud has been concocted by the French houses as they'd find real oriental ouds somewhat challenging .However, if you'll ask me, I don't think anyone's REAL oriental /oud experience would be complete without trying atleast one (or two! ) real & higher quality oud blends.
For instance, Dehn al Oud -Cambodi/Mubarak(q) alongwith this one represent some of the top-most , true, oriental agarwood(oud/aloes wood).
The authentic scent, the way it was originally intended to smell like many centuries ago,and not like the pompous (and often banal) attempts made by the greedy & corporate-driven French houses whose foremost concern is huge profits, and nothing besides that.
These avaricious perfume houses have cunningly modified and altered the core-scent of traditional oud oils so as to make them palatable for the western customer in their EDP/EDTs.
But friends,this forgery has somehow contorted and corroded the true essence, the taintless richness, the unabashed forthrightness of the Arabian perfume oils known as attars!
This one is all about oud.Doesn't need flowers and fruits to become admissible!
Not a spineless crowd pleaser but, a confident (&raw) loner of a scent. For someone who knows they would manage lots of company along the road, and that too,effortlessly!
Performance is awesome, in all departments.
Good Luck & Happy Sniffing!
