I am parting with some of my extra Oud supply. These are older discontinued unused top tier Oud from Ensar Oud.
I will not split these unless it is for 2/3 of it. Then I will give you the bottle...
Sigh..... my unicorn is sandal attar
This with the caveat of my Aoud's. Some of which are VERY pricey. ~$2000-$5000 per 3ml.:shocked: please Don't tell SWMBO about that little tidbit. :lipsrsealed:
Most of my more expensive ones...
It is well worth getting IMHO...
This is an excellent thread!!!
Well Done Ivana!!!!!
For me, I try not to get too wrapped up on synthetic or natural unless I am talking about my Oud collection(which then becomes strictly a...
Just get the bottle!!! Great juice!
It's one of my top 3-5 EDP
sorry if this is rude but I think at this time it fits!!!!!!!
OMG....... Is the UK turning into china now?
So it is a sad day here as for some reason I am not getting AL Shomukh now. Some prob in Heathrow customs.... Anyone have a clue what that is about???
I tend to be the single oud fan also.
pm me if you would be interested.
Oudh Al Masarat 6ML
Silver Oud Attar 12 ml
Tayyiba is excellent!!!
Looks like I will have to get both!!
I can be bought!!!!
I agree! I've had many samples of it from the perfumed court but could never find a bottle until now!

Ok so now for the sandal. I...
I don't think Bill W would object to it and anyone that is part of AA would find the humor in it.
After all in their Big Book it says, "We are not a glum lot"
- - - Updated - - -
This and Santal are my two unicorn Attar's. I'll let you know how this bottle compare's to the samples I have tried!!!:laugh:
Yup. I got it!
From the price point take a sniff of YSL Kouros also. People love it or hate it.
either Christian Dior Vetiver or Annick Goutal Vetiver perhaps???
IMHO every Attar I own is a treasure. Only one missing is the sandalwood....(sigh, my unicorn).
The EDP best for me are Interlude Woman(truly unisex), Interlude Man, and Epic Man in that order. ...
I get that with all the things I own from one side of the political genepool or another. Whether it is my guns, knives, straight razors, frags, etc. People have a habit of bashing what they do not...
Veni is on today. It will definately need a few wears to fully evaluate in my uneducated nose but for some reason I am reminded of Angel Men??? It has only just been put on an hour ago so time will...
LOL What is?
This has always been the case here in the US. I purchased all the ones I have through a vender in the UAE. Shipping wasn't bad as I bought a bunch at the same time.
I am a big fan of I Coloniali.
I always Uber Lather but it blends so well with other creams and add's a nice smokey menthol mango kick. Try it with TOBS sandalwood cream. FANTASTIC!!!
That was not what I wanted to hear.....:cry:
I only it was SWMO!!!!!!
Sil has been sick so I don't know if they have seen each other yet. I have not been able to find it any where.. sigh I...
MR, I'm sooooo jealous of the Amouage sandalwood attar. How is that and please tell me you hate it?????:cry:
I'll make one up for ya. How did SWMBO like the attar's I sent for her?
Dont forget epic and the other attar's!!!! LOL
It is such a heavy scent I find I am still learning what it has in it's bag of tricks. It is one of the frag's that I can only do 1-2 sprays. Any more and it is overkill and becomes a fog of WMD...
I guess I am lucky as all amouage attar's I own(17 different) are excellent. Of the alcolhol based I only own/enjoy Interlude and epic.
Tribute is a fantastic frag. I've never been unlucky to...
Aventus is a keeper for sure but you really need GIT from Creed also.
DHI for me sucked due to poor longevity. Good scent but would not last for more then an hour ish...
SWMBO and myself went on a snowboarding trip this last week. She Loves Interlude Man and I had a tester that I was bringing for myself so I obtained Interlude Women for her. Her first reaction was...
Drakkar Noir (1982)
Giorgio for Men (1984)
And God yes Polo
Well Syl and I can't wait to see what you come back with!!
I'm down now that I am over the respiratory plague!! Talk to Sil and she will let me know. LOL If it's not medical or tactical, she handles it!!! SWMBO!!!(she who must be obeyed!)
There is NO WAY Sil and I can ever keep up to this!!!!!! LMAO When I looked at her phone and saw the pics I didn't have my contacts in so it was not evident until seeing online the "level" of...
I posted a review on Oud Stars : Alexandria. It is still showing as pending....
Plenty of newer/older frag's and unlisted from many houses...
why are these things pending???
just wondering. ...
Some of the Oud
The Amouage Attar's
I just have no idea where to start... First off, Other then epic man, Interlude is the only one I feel is worth getting from the EDP line. Now if you are talking there attar's then all of them are...
Is that Amouage Silver Oud Attar?
Look up the price of 100ml of interlude man from amouage. :cry:Or a 12ML tribute attar from amouage. $2K for 3ML Ensaroud, Oud Sultani now, and I guarentee in two years it will resale for at least...
It is over a year old and quite calm Kron. I wonder if the fact that the new ones are "young" make them less edgy? Similar to Oud? They are oils after all???
- - - Updated - - -
Igor the oudication continues with many different types. I'm posting the journey on gaharu doing blind studies. Very interesting and fun. I enjoy Taha's oils but they need to sit and settle/age...
Amouage Attar's Ruh al Ward, Al Mas, Ayoon al Maha, Salamah, Molook, Asrar, or Basma.
I could no more wear 4 sprays of this then I could Kouros!!! 2 is plenty. The only other I have is Epic Man. I dislike ALL the others unless talking about the Attar's to which I have 16 of them! ...
I'm Conus in Houston. Bought them over the internet from UAE. I've gotten samples from the perfumed court prior to buying but most of the ones in 12ml or 30ml I had never smelled. LOL It was a...
I wish I had something to base this on. Past purchases of samples prior to buying have been the same. Granted that I have not had samples for all the different ones I have but 5 of them yes. ...
Absolutely LOVE this! Well blended and jumps around with different spices. Everyone I have let try this and everyone who has smelled it has loved it.
I thought it was ok. FEDEX from UAE $90. No tax and the cost on them was good. I would not want to make many small purchases but 1 or 2 large ones works well.
this is where I got them from
Crappy pic but it was a quick down and dirty shot. I'll try to make something better later.
Ranking these for me is like ranking the difference between my rifles, pistals and shotguns. They all have a different use.
I tend to think of them as being "bright" or "dark". And then there are...
How do I post a pic here? I cant find how unless I have a link to it and I don't have any pics of them posted anywhere..
tribute is amazing!!!!
I got them from here. http://www.asf-dubaishop.com
Only fees were the fed ex charge to the US. and they all had labels on them so I knew which was which!!!
Currently wearing Oud Ishaq from Ensar...
This is where I am at right now. I think I should be set for a little while!! At least I hope so.
Al Andalus Attar 30 ml
Al Mas Attar 30 ml
Asrer (Asrar ) Attar 12 ml
Ayoon Al Maha Attar 12...
LOL.. well the palate should round out fairly well then as I have Oud Yunus from Ensar and Kuno Kayu coming from Agaraura. That should cover the indian/cambo/borneo trifecta!!!!
- - - Updated -...
HATE M7!!!! Havane, even if I didn't have it and like it, wins by default .
Igor, I'm finding the EDA to be a much "sweeter" oud but still having the indol note to it. The Ishaq is much more "barnyard" but does move off that after awhile to a woodier note. It has a spicy...
Well DAMN!! most of mine except two were labled....
Have you looked at the bottom of the bottle? All mine have a label on them. 16 different bottle's, 16 labels.
Also I have taken a small piece of masking tape and put that on the bottom of the...
waiting for my second "massive"amouage order to come in. It will total out at 16 different 12/30ml containers.
Ugh I have this bad!!!
I agree. Actually I find Aggar Aura or Ensar oud much better then Amouage's two oudh offerings. That is not to say I dislike Amouage attar's because I love them all and own 16 different versions of...
Sad but true!!! If you own oudh, hold on to it as it will be difficult if not impossible to find in the future. I guard my "stash"!!!!
Where are my true Oudh lovers? Just about everything I have seen listed contains chemical indol scent, not true oudh.
While I have some of these listed such as Creed Royal Oud M7 and Tom Ford Oud...
Anything from Oricent/Ensar oud
Many Amouage Attar's
Ok all. Try this. Just ordered 5 other amouage attars. very accurate, good shipping time frame and great cost!
For me it was....... M7
Absolutely hate it. If anyone wants this let me know!!
Very much so!!!!
Wow!!!! Two new Oud's came in the mail this week. At this time I'm still trying to nail them down but it's defineately a task for my untrained nose. I would like to hear from others on there...
True Oud and Attar's. Now becoming something of a quest collecting and finding what "hits" for me. Recently bought two Oud's from Ensar. Walking down that path now is very stimulating!
Good lord How did I forget LaToja??? In the container not the stick. Different formula. Sadly now discontinued.....
Guns, knives, straight razors, Attar's. Lord know's what else but I have my hobbies. I wish I had one that was not so expensive!
Love them all but there are a bunch that are special to me for various reasons. Some that I restored or built new scales on. I use various materials like girraffe bone in different colors, horn...
If you have crap soap then you will have a crap shave. If you have a crap razor(straight razor), then you will have a crap shave.
Both have HUGE importance in the quality of your shave.

I hear all the time how EDP/EDC go bad over time so why would anybody want old stuff?
