Thanks for your reviews, purplebird. Madini oils have been topics on the board on and off over time but haven't been discussed much lately. Of the ones you mentioned, I have Chypre and Maderas de Orient, both of which are excellent, but because my skin tends to sweeten many scents, neither is as dry as they apparently are for you. One that IS incredibly dry is Bouquet, which is a bouquet of woods, not flowers, and has a medicinal blast of oud. Not for the faint hearted.
Thanks for bringing up Madini again, as the company makes superior products.
