Roja Dove Amber Aoud.
If it's just an 'Islamic' shop and not a mosque then no etiquettes to consider :)
If it's a shop inside a mosque then shoes off possibly depending on where the shop is inside the mosque, also...
I've bought from this chap too http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Al-Munawwara-Perfumes
He had this white Oud that was very good and also some designer type oils.
That's a good point. I'd overlooked their attars. I've bought the last two that Taha had; Baghadad (sold out) and Intiqae. Baghadad has an awesome oak moss dry down and Intiqae has 2 quality ouds.
Cool, thanks for the pointer :)
I don't think so. I actually smell a decent enough oud note in Mona's Oud which I didn't in MFK (more blended in).
Now if we go to Cashmere or Velvet Mood, lovely oud note in both (I prefer them...
I've used Arabian Oud's UK online site. Delivery was quick. I bought Kalemat and Kalemat Black. I asked for some samples and they threw in about 7 different ones. Good buying experience and prices...
It's true, probably been aged for 30 years too :D
Can't comment on the respiratory effects but oud oil is a perfume in itself and has an opening, heart and base.
There are also different grades of oil so whether the real thing is used in a...
+1 Opus II
It's nice. I'd go with a decant.
My experience with him thus far has been 1 purchase of 2 bottles a few months ago. Arrived safe but poorly packaged.
Very recently I've been enquiring about white box Tribute availability through...
Now you mention it, I can see how Creed Spice and Wood is similar to Sultan. However Sultan is missing a cola type vibe I get from CSW.
The thing with the oils is that they tend to come in different...
:D It bothers me enough not to do business with him!
Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait
Whatsapp seems to be a good option.
Roja Dove Enigma Pour Homme Parfum
I work in education and am around a few thousand people every day, from all backgrounds (albeit mostly teens).
I've found the behaviour you described (drowning out BO and poor hygiene using...
I've had a few compliments from my sister.
Lots from my wife.
1 from a male friend.
1 from a student who just said "mmmm, someone smells REALLY nice" at which point another student piped up that...
Your wallet might!
It may be that some people have this impression due to using a tester to smell a fragrance for the first time, possibly an intense sensory impact. Subsequent exposures don't have that same intensity.
It is part of my quest too, to find the mystical Mysore sandalwood, rather clueless where to look! At least with oud oils there are a few places where you can get the best at a price.
Sounds great, got a decant of Harrods Oud coming, will look to procure a bottle of the Agarwood.
That is unfortunate :(
'Noobs' on ebay/those who don't know/appreciate what they are buying are really annoying.
Hopefully you can relist it with the colour of the juice explained in big bold...
Cool, thanks for the feedback. The dormant feature may be due to the absence of alcohol, which would explain why the 'normal' fragrances do their thing regardless.
Is it real oud oil they use in...
I own Indonesian Oud, nice rose and oud combo. Need to try the rest of the line especially Patchouli, Vetiver & Bergamot.
I buy the largest bottle possible 99.9% of the time. I feel like I've lost out if I buy the smaller size (economies of scale and a total lack of pragmatism on my behalf).
Excellent information, many thanks :)
Creed Spice and Wood.
Bond No9 Harrods Swarovski Oud
Agreed. I haven't reached for Oud for Love in quite a while but can't remember them being similar. Oud for Love is nice though.
Jubilation XXV has a similar creamy oud note, but I haven't come...
Well, I haven't received a reply to my two emails yet and it's coming up to 2 weeks now so...
Mind you I did order about 60 samples the last time, maybe they're like "oh no, not him again" :D
Excellent, thanks PB :)
Remember me when you get O Hira too!
Me too! (and then I must stop, as I keep telling myself lol)
Any plans to split Stephane Humbert Lucas: Oud 777 & O Hira?
I would have grabbed it. You should rush back ;)
Fetish Pour Homme Parfum: Roja Dove
Any developments with this? Did you manage to reach a satisfactory resolution?
You Sir, are a Gentleman and a Scholar :)
Has anybody got a picture of the normal bottle without the crystals? I can only find pictures of the fancy bottle.
If a kind BN'er could upload a picture it would be most appreciated.
Any chances of a Homage Attar split if not too late?

I'd take at least 12ml
Acqua Universalis Forte
I've also bought from cleo-healthcare. Good enough for my purposes and not expensive.
I was really impressed with the little note inside the package advising to spray the atomiser a few times to...
Eternity, aged for 20 years, sounds illogical :D
I've ordered from him once, 2 bottles. Arrived safely, abysmally packaged.
I also sent an email and didn't receive a reply. I then whatsapped him, the number is on the site, and received replies....
Yep, 'stank' out a room with ease!
The downside to living on an island.
I've ordered from the EU to the UK, not sure if it is different for fragrances coming into the Motherland, never had a problem thank God!
One thing I have noticed is that all were delivered using a...
Lol, if I was a rich banker I would probably do the same ;)
If you go with Dia first then you will appreciate Jubilation more (it's nicer than Dia imo) whilst both are nice.
If you go with...
That take on oud is hilarious :D
I can still keep my pure oud oils right? If that is the case then Armani Prive Oud Royal.
Not as of yet.
I can imagine :)
Hasn't replied to my two emails though - despite having spent a couple of hundred quid on my previous order, hmmm...
Versace Eau Fraiche
I don't feel strange, more like a little incomplete.
Oooo, let's see...
Leather Oud by Al Haramain
Amouage Ciel Man
L'erbolario Neroli x 2
L'erbolario Dolcelisir x 2
Bois de Portugal
Spice & Wood
Straight to Heaven
Arabian Oud Qasr
If you get stuck: http://www.scentsamples.uk.com/montale-aoud-velvet/perfume/138
Arabian Oud Kalemat
It's on my to buy list.
Top note: Thyme, Raspberry
Middle note: Jasmine, Cashmere wood, Labdanum, Orris
Base note: Leather, Cedar wood, Amber, Musk
I think a few internet reviews/reviewers may have inadvertently helped with the price increase! Some of the pricing is getting ridiculous. I managed to get 2 big bottles recently for cheap from an...
+1 for Xerjoff Khat
Zafar starts off with strong Hindi barnyard, and whilst not being a big fan of barnyard, it's tolerable. I find Khat to be a creamy sort of skank. It lacks some of the...
Allure Homme Sport
Oud Royal by a country mile. One of my all time favourites. It smells rich and as described above 'creamy oud'.
Oud Wood, whilst pleasant, is on the sweet side and I don't get any Oud from it.
I've ordered from them before, even the 1ml samples came in an atomiser and everything was nicely labeled.
Daytime: Roja Dove Amber Oud
Evening: Puredistance M + a swipe of Maroke 2004 oud oil
Notes are definitely intriguing.
This will be my first summer as a serious fraghead so my list is somewhat noob-like, will probably reach for these more so now:
Mine are currently in various jiffy bags, a carrier bag, an old perfume box and lined up on my bookshelf. I need to find a nice case for them.
Ralph Lauren Safari
1) Pure Oud
2) Straight to Heaven
3) A Taste of Heaven
4) Amber Oud
Didn't like Back to Black - too sweet for my liking. Haven't tried much else, would like to try Incense Oud.
Indonesian Oud by Ermenegildo Zegna
MFK Cashmere Mood
Ameer al Oudh is lovely - after the initial alcohol blast.
This Bakhakh looks interesting too.
Oud has many different scent profiles ranging from (not exhaustive) ripe fruits/plum, fecal/overly ripe, pungent, green forests, minty menthol, honey, smoke and incense. It all depends on the source...
I find fresh air helps me smell fragrances better.
I also fell in love with Indonesian Oud the first time I smelt it, I bought if after one spray there and then.
It's the spelling that gives that impression - that's what got me to click this thread. :D
As above, eBay is a good bet. I've picked up 3 bottles thus far from there at very good prices.
Amouage: Epic Man.
Penhaligon's LP No9
Sounds great, a good way to try different fragrances.
That would be cumin.
I just got my Vetiver Extrait which smells fantastic and lasts for ages.
I dislike them but hey, it's a free world or so I get told! They remind me of cats who have been in a fight.
Extreme Oud By Kilian
I tried Castile and bought Essenza instead, just seemed a lot more rounded and fulfilling as a scent.
That's a really good point, thanks!
Way too many to mention, but one I was rather chuffed about was Extreme Oud By Kilian. Bargain price and brand new :) Interesting to note that it wasn't as extreme as I expected, very different but...
Perhaps due to everybody regularly being in a state of connection to one of those?
Earthy - we live on it, it's all around us
Dirty - we all get dirty
Skanky - we all get skanky
Fecal - we all......
I try each sample 3 times - unless it is something hideous that has scarred me mentally, in which case it is twice; just to make sure I really don't like it.
