anyone tried a pure oud oil from ASAQ that smelled like coffee? I should say coffee beans, burned coffee beans! anyone?
1234....All of the Indian Oud chips I have sold or sampled have never smelled barnyardy like the oil. The smoke is usually sweet and sometimes spicey. To me it is the most classic "oud" note you can get from the various regions. I also thin that you get more bang for your buck with Indian Ouds because the quality of the actual scent that is left behind. I have smelled many of higher quality Oud chips from other regions and the smoke when burnt may smell better and the chips may be of very very high grade lets say for instance Oriscents Borneo chips which are sinking grade but the scent left behind after an hour or so , at least to me is not as good as many Indian chips I have come across. This is why I prefer Indian chips of all others.
cont...I recently tried some very very beatiful Kyara chips from Vietname which should be from the cressna species and the smoke was other wordly, uncomparable to any smoke I have come across, with that said I get just as much satisfaction with a high quality though lower grade Indian chips, even though the initial smoke is not as good the scent left behind lasts for days in the house of on the clothes and is just wonderful. I am now scenting the fur arounf my winter coat hood every week or so to keep it nice and fresh and every time I put my coat on or put the hood over my head i get this waft or Oud smoke scent that in many ways is more enjoyable then a high quality oil.
Abubakr, the Borneo chips I have from Oriscent don't sink at all ... I've tried a few pieces but none have sunk thus far ...
Indian chips are very nice.

Agarscents Bazaar video,
I wonder where Sharif would be from ... ohh well who cares, his blends are extradonary ... it takes talent to do what he does.
I am dying to see ensars video....i bet there's flying ninjas!
Oh my Allah! That is Shariff!??????? What a Beatnik! I cant believe it. I thought he would be older and more classic in style but he is a young escentric beatnik. That is so funny!
you guys never seen that video before? I saw it a few months ago. dont know where I found the link. I knew shariff looked like that and it suprised me when i saw it also. I always thought he was like a guy in his 40s+....I didnt think he looked like that!
