    Making Bakhoor?

    Hi All :)

    This is a bit of a long shot, but I was wondering whether anyone had any idea how one can go about making their own Bakhoor? You can get the already scented Agarwood etc, but does...

    Shalimar Guerlain - disappointed

    I tested Shalimar by Guerlain yesterday and I must say I was quite disappointed. I thought it was WAY too sweet for my liking and I could barely catch a whiff of its so called 'woody-ness' to it. ...

    Interesting stuff, thank you!
  11. Re: What carrier oil would be best to dilute Ajmal Musk Gazelle Grade AA Premium Perfume Oil?

    I could be wrong but I have also heard that there is a way to extract the musk from the animal gland - without actually killing the animal. Can anyone confirm this?

    Wow.... so as it seems, word of mouth advertising really does work, then! I guess on a business perspective, it would make sense to charge for samples and this would be one way of weeding out the...
  13. PR and Marketing a Niche perfume brand

    This is a follow on from the thread about the Montales perfumes being disbanded. Some people commented on the fact that this brand has never had any PR and was never advertised. Or something to...

    Sorry, I know that this is old - but I think this is a very good review and spot on! :)

  17. Re: A forum of perfume lovers! Non conventional perfumes

    Hahaha! Yes, I am sorry! I noticed that afterwards so sorry for being annoying.


    I totally agree with you! The fact these these are "run of the mill" is the impression that I got on this...
  18. Re: Are there brands you won't buy by principle?

    Not that I am against them per se, but for some reason I would never buy a Celebrity perfume. I have once for a gift that I got for someone else, but that's it. Even when I like a celebrity...

    Completely agree, the fragrance treasures found in souqs can be amazing :)
  22. Re: A forum of perfume lovers! Non conventional perfumes

    I personally think rose and sandlewood is a lovely combination! And I certainly think you should try out maybe some of the 'lighter' Arabian scents, as some can be quite overwhelming. Arabian Oudh...

  24. Re: A forum of perfume lovers! Non conventional perfumes

    Thank you so much - and you have been quite helpful to me so far! :)

    I guess I know what you mean about the holy trinity concept in European perfume at least - but I certainly think that when the...
  25. Re: A forum of perfume lovers! Non conventional perfumes

    Hi - and thanks so much :)

    Oh you HAVE to try the Arabian perfumes! I know what you mean about the Oudh, I personally also find them very strong to say the least on their own, but I think when...

    Re: Montale and Amouage

    I see - yes it makes sense that Montles would be equivalent to the Mukhallats. I have some mukhallats from Dubai in 1 half tola bottles and 1 tola bottles... I am guessing that 1 tola is equal to...
