    Re: Cambodian and indian oud

    Yes, Laotian oud is more 'primal' and raw, whereas 'Cambodian' (although technically it would be Thai, as 99.99% of so-called Cambodian oils are actually oils extracted from trees grown in Thailand;...

    Re: Cambodian and indian oud

    You're welcome, Buzzlepuff! I'm glad you found the information useful. : )

    By the way, I do not want to come off as an elitist who has only negative things to say about mainstream oud frags. On...

    Re: Cambodian and indian oud

    When it comes to grading oils in the manner of "A, B, C", "AAAA, AAA, AA, A, BBB", etc, it is highly subjective. Every distiller will have his own standards - the higher up in the alphabet, the...

    Re: Cambodian and indian oud

    Although the original question has mostly been answered, spanning several posts, I'll give my input as well since I have first-hand experience with oud oil distillation.

    First of all we must...

    Re: Layering Pure Agarwood Oil

    All the suggestions above are excellent.

    Some quick pointers:
    - if you want to tone down the animalic note, rose is a good option. The sharp crisp notes of rose will tame the more fecal elements...

    Re: Oudh

    Oud, Aoud, oudh, aloeswood, agar, and agarwood are all the same thing.

    Agar is the Indian word for the tree itself, or the fragrant heartwood of the tree, that produces the resin. It is derived...

    Re: Diluting rich Agarwood/Oud

    Hi there anatta,

    Try using fractionated coconut oil, as it seems to have an indefinite shelf life, and also happens to be scentless.
    I guess you could use DPG as well.

    Do you think dilution...
  8. Re: Fragrance with a fecal smell an addictive? Do you like fecal scent fragrance?

    By the way, as your nose gets more used to the bolder ouds out there, you might realize that "pungent and barnyardy" are more accurate descriptions.
    And for the more 'fecal' ouds, they have more of...
  9. Re: Fragrance with a fecal smell an addictive? Do you like fecal scent fragrance?

    Good point, @primrose and @AZsmells.

    There are certain compounds which are found in e.g. oud, which are also found in poop.
    Like nineXseven said, if you haven't patiently let your nose decipher...
  10. Re: What do oud connoisseurs think of Black Aoud?

    I hate being a party pooper, but.... its very easy to 'construct' an rose scent using 7-10 aroma chemicals. Pure oud oil isn't as rare as oud oil, but you just can't produce a lot of it. So, like...
  11. Re: What do oud connoisseurs think of Black Aoud?

    I don't believe there's a drop of pure oud in any of the Montale perfumes.
    The same goes for Tom Ford, Killian, Le Labo, or any other big house that has an "oud" fragrance.

    The synthetic oud note...

  16. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    No probs Evoke. They don't have anything to hide, as far as bakhoor vs oud chips are concerned. They are two separate products, and they are sold as two separate products. Sort of like oud vs an...
  17. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    An important point you bring up Evoke!
    Bukhour is, in fact, not pure oud chips. It is agarwood and/or other substances which are soaked in spices and perfumes. Problem is... many of the perfumes are...

    @change1, here's a PM I sent someone who had an inquiry. I hope you and others find it useful.
  19. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    The original poster (change1) asked about pure oud, and that's what I and a few others tried to answer.
    You may be happy with your Khaloud and/or other oils which you consider oud.
    To me, some of...
  20. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    @Moreda, I'm sorry you feel that way.
    I would be happy if you buy Oriscent's ouds. I've already mentioned they're just about my biggest competition. See, its not about me trying to promote my...
  21. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    Yep, I'd say the same... closer to a pizza addiction.
    Something which is relatively affordable (a bottle can be expensive, but a tiny dot on your wrist not that much!), and can reeeeeally affect...

  23. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    I've tried Oud Al-Khulood. Its either *completely* devoid of oud, or has oud but is heavily mixed with other substance[s].

    I'm not worried about being sued by Amouage for saying this, because I...
  24. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    By the way, the $350 oil you are referring to was specifically made for Agar Aura, so I know very well what made it (and what didn't make it) into the oil. : )
    I didn't simply buy a ready-made oil,...
  25. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    @Moreda,
    Have you seen pure sandalwood oil? That is transparent. So is cedar. They're both derived from trees as well.
    Oud oil is, after all, an essential oil. And most essential oils are...
  26. Re: What does pure oud smell like? M7, Amouage Hommage Attar, Jubilation XXV, Epic Men

    All pure high quality ouds are transparent (some might be so dark though, that they appear opaque).
    There are some lower quality oud oils which are mixed with the lowest grade of oud ('bouya') which...
