Unlike most of the ouds with which I am familiar, Maroke's basenotes are more herbal/mossy/cool than woody.
It makes me think of farmhouse root cellars.
This oil seems a bit “fuzzier” and is more tenacious than the IJ.
Hey guys, I tried to order from ASAQ site but was unable to. If you order directly from them, are there prices cheaper then Zahra's?
I ordered the Qurashi Blend (Khaltat Qurashi) from Zahra's, is this fragrance a good choice, how does it smell? for those who have it.
Has anyone tried the 100% PURE KUPANG SANDALWOOD 3 ml (no Agarwood/Oud) from Agarscents, is it worth buying?
Musdev, I do not believe it's possible to order from ASAQ's store via internet. Your best way is to find someone who can help you aquire it.
I would not recommend the pure kupang sandalwood from agarscents,
as with most of his stuff, it is drastically overpriced and in my opinion isn't pure
Hi ! anyone tried Oudselect ?
I been also waiting for someone to try oudselect. Weird no one has mentioned trying them
yet! When I run into some extra money and after I get some thaqeel I will be te guinepig.... But that might be a while.
I haven't tried the oudselect but they are pretty cheap. Their sampler is $100 for 5. It seems pretty clear for their website that their oud is from cultivated trees. I am still curious to try them.
Breaking news: Oriscent has a new oud. Insanely expensive though and of course no samples. I guess he found his Cambodi oud though I'm surprised its already available for sale.
Kyara Koutan is $790! They claim it is virtually the same as Kyara LTD which I have heard is amazing.
Ohh man I needa get me some of this magical fruit called the 'forbidden fruit.'
"even those with the finest taste for forbidden fruit are denied its Secret."
"Kings would sell theirs for a whiff of green Kyara... the rarest fragrance known – extracted from the rarest aromatic in the world."
So it is extracted from Green Kyara? Wow ... that's gotta be one awesome Oud ...
Anyone tried this new Oud yet?
