I will be waiting patiently now for my attars! Can t wait haha, i think i will love Tribute, will report back for sure,just hope all will be fine:-)
Lpp you ordered from Mo long time ago, i saw it:-)
Onda is so special fragrance, when i smell it i think of perfect shape of a sphere, or a ball:-) ..and of dark brown colour that goes lighter by mixing of some nice white feathers into it hhehe, yes gets warm.really an amazing old school perfume of modern age,and its bitter like digestive:-)
We never stop learning - that's part of the fun!
Hope you enjoy your Amouage rose oil! If it's the same as mine ....we put a few drops in a rose kulfi we made & it was lovely!
The Bulgarians & Turks both grow damascena - R. damascena trigintipetala 'Kazanlik' is amazing, just planted another one.http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/kazanlik/
If you smell a fresh bloom of 'Kazanlik', it really smells like Taif oil! - since smelling the flower I've always wondered if their production methods around Taif are superior? I know it's regarded as a slightly different cultivar, but maybe there's more to it than that & climate.
Interesting paper about the Taif rose:-http://www.academicjournals.org/ajb/...%20et%20al.pdf
Mass propagation - can't wait for that one!
Yes, Mo has been sourcing Amouage for a long time, but better not compliment him too much
edit:O.K., so that looks ambiguous - based on my experience I would happily buy again.
Onda description is very good!
