    So you asked for THE Oud Thaqeel?

    That clears that up, Oudh Seeker. Thanks for the clarification.

    The first place I asked for it is in Makkah( holy Capital of KSA). I found the guy outside of his shop. I approached him, and asked him for Oud Thaqeel, but he perceived it as an oud that is thick in its nature. He asked: "You mean an oud with high viscosity?"

    "No, I want Al Qurashi's Oud Thaqeel" I answered.

    " Oh! This one costs SR10000, BTW" he said.

    " Whatever, just show it to me" I said.

    He brought out a bottle from the cabinet, took out the applicator, and I've seen just how damn thick the oil is. He wanted to give me a swipe, but changed his mind and only gave me a tiny touch by the tip.

    " Is this oud Cambodian?" I asked.

    " No, it's Indian" he answered.

    " What about Kalakassi?" I asked again.

    " This one is Indian, too, but not as old" he said.

    I don't want to make a novel out of it, but the other shop I bought it from said that Thaqeel is Indian, too. Seems like some sort of suspicion in the oud's origin background.

    Oudh Seeker: I have one bottle which is labeled "Thankil 100 YRS Old Cambodia (Sticky Oudh)". There's an oud carried by Oudimentary called KSSS that smells very similar to Thaqeel which is also Cambodian.

    There does seem to be conflicting information.

    Well Bluemoon, this is an area that is out of my humble knowledge. I absolutely have no idea whether it's Indian or otherwise.

    I think I'll go to different ASAQ shops here and there and ask their salesmen about the oud's origin.

    Oudh Seeker: I just got a PM from a BNer who said he was pretty sure he remembered the SA in the Medinah store saying ASAQ was Cambodian, and a SA in another shop referring to Thaqeel as "the Cambodian one". Maybe the next place you visit will say it's Indian. We may never know.

    To all: (Although this is only peripherally related to this discussion): CITES is making an effort to standardize grading of oils and chips, and it appears that more DNA analysis will be done to determine from which species woods and oils are sourced. I'm sure that consumers will benefit from their efforts.

    I know the Kyara Ltd. is N/A. However, Oriscent states on its site words to the effect of it can be considered to be a proper "clone" of the Kyara Ltd. It's an awful lot of $$ so I'd really love to hear from someone who's experienced the Kyara Ltd. I have a bottle of their Borneo Kinam, which I love, but this seems to be a very different animal.

    @Mellysmelly, sorry for the belated response. Yeah, I've tried a few samples of their oils. They're okay for the price, although I'm not a big fan of their Malay and Kalimantan oil (especially the latter).

    @evbo: if you've tried Burmese Kinam, it's basically the same scent (many people actually believe it's the same oil given the fact that the smell is identical).

    On a more positive note, I really like the Vanuatu sandalwood! Though it is far from cheap, it is at least obtainable, and when my last little bit of Mysore Ancient of Days wends its inevitable way onto my skin and into the atmosphere, I think this is the one that will assume that throne on the shelf.

    A couple of people here found it harsh, but on me it isn't at all, after about 6 hours or so, it goes through a sort of smoky phase for a little while, then settles back down into blissful creamy dreamy sandalwoodhood and stays there until I wash it off, just like it's supposed to.

    And - if you layer it with a little smudge of the CO2 cultured or clonealized or synthesized or whatever it is oud-adjacent substance, it makes the oud smell last longer, and waltzes gracefully around with it!

    So, as it stands now, I will definitely get some of the Vanuatu sandalwood, and probably another $2 drop of the CO2oud, but if you have $, you will probably be happier getting a $20 drop of one of ham firl's various offerings...

    I guess it is human nature, that when something morphs into unobtanium, we tend to focus on it, kind of like the way the tip of your tongue is drawn to a sore tooth. And it is the oud thread.

    In the big picture, though, I am blessed with a love of all the great classic scents - oud, rose, sandalwood, ylang-ylang, khus (vetiver), jasmine, tuberose...

    I say "blessed" because if I did love only one or two, then situations like we currently have with oud and sandalwood would turn me into one sad puppy, trotting around smelling like soap and toothpaste with a top note of Tide.

    As an Authentic Poor Person, I enjoy applying the skills I have acquired over the years to finding workarounds that result in me obtaining things that I could not afford otherwise, whether that be discovering the beauty of that Vanuatu sandalwood - or that the little old lady down the street having a yard sale has no idea and/or does not care that the box marked "$5" contains, among the warped tupperware and busted Avon cream sachet jars, a hand-embroidered silk jacket older than me, an 18K gold chain upon which is suspended a 14mm aubergine South Sea pearl (it passed the tooth test), and a little box covered in purple flocking, inside which nestles a pointy little vial of L'Heure Bleue circa 1968.

    "Oh that foreign-smellin' stuff!" she hmmphed, making a little moue of distaste as I gleefully handed her a crumpled $5 bill with a hand already daubed with my new old Guerlain treasure.

    She looked at me slightly suspiciously. "I guess thass' why you like it, though?"

    Charming post, Cath! I'd wager you have an especially strong appreciation of the treasures you've collected because of the pluck and resourcefulness required to obtain them. Blessed you are :-)
    If there's an oud in which you're especially interested you could propose a "group buy". Getting less of something is not the same as getting a lot of it "for cheap" but it's a way to experience good oils without having to buy a whole bottle. Also, there are at least a couple of members who've touted the unexpected notes they've discovered when diluting oud- as much as 19:1. That could make an AgarAura or Oudhasi sample last a very long time. Maybe you can dream up so many ways to "improve" Oriscent's website that you'll be rewarded with enough "free swipes" to acquire a bottle without having to spend a dime :-)
    I can't wait for the day when I read a post in which you're exulting about the most mind-bendingly exquisite oud you've discovered in the most unlikely place, which cost less than a song and dance (both of which I've no doubt you'd perform with energy and panache). I hope that day is soon :-)

    Is anyone willing to offer feedback yet on their bottle or sample of Kyara Koutan? I imagine that a few bottles have made their way off of Ensar's shelf by now. Anybody?

    Well how about the two latest from Agar Aura? Borneo Jewell or Sylvan Nectar - has anyone tried these? I am intriged because I definitely enjoyed his Cambodhi Ateeq - that more that Indian Spice for me. Feedback on Agar Aura new ones?

  26. #1226

    Default Re: Agarwood (oud) oil!

    Kyara Koutan is not dissimilar to Royal Kinam but has a somewhat muted Kinam note and a stronger woody base. I personally prefer the Royal Kinam.

    Sylvan Nectar is clearly Cambodian but it doesn't have much of the characteristic sweetness or jammy note, the opening has a certain tanginess that immediately reminded me of Kalakassi, shortly thereafter a "hot" note appears, that's the one that as I understand is likened to the honey Taha mentioned in the Oud Discussion Group. I haven't tried that honey so cannot comment on the similarity, but to me the hot note is reminiscent of the smell of coals in a dying bonfire. This oil should appeal a lot to those who like Cambodi's but want a departure from the beaten path of gummy, jammy, dried fruit sweetness. Somehow, Sylvan Nectar strikes me as a more "virile" Cambodi, an oil with a strong and charming character and probably more wearable in hot weather than your typical sweet ouds from that region which can become a bit cloying with all the sweetness.

    cathodera, I recommend trying a sample from Agaraura next. I believe you would enjoy it more than your CO2 (which I have also tried). It may cost more but not a huge investment and is totally worth it...in my humble opinion.

    Love your oud musings!

    Igor thanks for the descriptions of Kyara Koutan and Sylvan Nectar. I finaly broke down and got a bottle of Kyara Koutan and I have to say that I like it quite a bit. The opening reminds me greatly of the "sold out" Sheik's Borneo with a basenote of a hint of Royal Kinam. That is to say that to me it is quite warm and sweet with a nut like scent like roasted hazelnuts but the longer it wears the more the base elevates into a spiritual or minty transcendent sort of scent. This is obviously a very mellow and and aged oud that is quite nice. As an experiment, I tried to replicate this scent and came pretty close to it by using a half a swipe of Kalamantin Oud Super D from Ham Firl overlyaed with a mini dot of Royal Kinam Oud and it smells very similar to replicating the scent of Kyara Koutan. Is KK worth the $$? It is very good, but it doesn't strike me as that unusual. It is not nearly as rare as a scent like Oud Royale or B3000 But it is close to the same level of quality that those were when they were being sold for $350 or so.

    I am still quite intrigued with the two new ouds from Agar Aura and should probably try to order samples.

    Are you in search of a pure oud oil or an attar? If it's pure oud oil you're looking for then I personally wouldn't trust Amouage with their 'ouds'. Their Al Khalood is anything but ' pure and precious oud oil' and as for 'silver oud' it is most likely some kind of a blend of god knows what. 'Silver oud' is supposed to be one of the ingredients in Homage and if there's actually any oud in Homage it is a pretty lame oud, let alone dark and animalic - just my opinion, of course. That write-up on TPC doesn't make much sense - Silver Oud is "made by distilling petals and using a base of oil resulting in a very highly concentrated perfume (??).... and silver oud is pure silver oud" . WTF? "..one of the rarest ouds"...sure. Not a word about the oud's origins or any other ingredients of the actual fragrance.
    Perhaps you could send them an email and ask about the actual notes in Silver Oud?

    Bella, there has been much discussion about this company on the oud group, 'Oudh Ud Aoud <3 erz'. We are currently using the thread titled 'Agarwood oil thread' on that group, but the earlier discussion is on the thread, 'Oudh Ud Aoud <3 erz', which is now basically closed due to length.

    I have been using oud for a number of years and have to say I am addicted to it. I think you may be right about some of them, but have you tried the new cambodian oudh exclusive which only came in this week, it is so thick and smells slightly of honey unlike other oud's i have tried. Better than Hindi oud, which i'm going to give a miss for a few months now. Anyone tried the samples from oudhasi.com?

    Dear Oudhaholic,
    Now adays most if not all the Cambodi Dehn eloud (agarwood Oil) are honestly not from natural oud chips. they are mainly from cultivated ( Injected trees wood). and this i a very cheap way to get oud oil and sell it with overpriced amount. I am not sure wht type or quality of Indian Oud OIl you are using, but just to clearify, there are so many types and grades of Indian oud, some non experts are thinking of dehn eloud sold in big shops Like Quarshi, Ajmal, and others are original. !! but As Aprivate trader, my self, I know the sources and deal with them directly, who supply to qurashi and Ajmal.. and others. in India and malysia,/ Indonisia and Singapore. Qurashi unfortunately is fooling poor unexpert people like some of my freinds, who pay 5, 6, and 7 thousand dirhams or Riyals for just one Tola (11.66 gm) of Oil, just a freindly info, Qurashi, is mixing his dehn Oil, like one called kalakasi, and he adds ome other oud smell to it to change it , so no other shop would have the same , it is all about business, brother.Dont worry about the brand names of different oud Oils, oud is oud, but the different the location, TREE type, and area the different is the smell and characterstics. Feel free to reply me, and hope I had some usefull informatio about OUD OIL.

    Neurosis and dewdrops777- I'd suggest you check out samples offered by agaraura.com and oudhasi.com. They are reliable sellers who offer good quality products at reasonable prices. If you purchase a few samples you'll be able to get to know the scent of a variety of different oud oils for a reasonable price.

    Klute:
    "One of the best incense for general use is Oude (sometimes spelled Ud) - but be warned that the genuine top quality can cost hundreds of thousands of dirhams a kilo. There is also dispute as to the nature of Oude in Morocco, with some experts claiming that what is on offer is not the real thing."

    I haven't smelled the one you're referring to. Via Perfumed Court, I received a sample of an Abdul Samad Al Qurashi, Royal Jasmine. It's gorgeously indolic with out the barn smell. It lasts all day. There's a store in London and the products are sold on Zahras. I went on the website and it seems the have a wide variety of Arabian scents, of course including oud. Arabian Oud is also in London. Maybe, a shopping trip in London is needed? I think if you like a Montale, you should just get what you like. I have Marwah by Al Haramain which is Tarif rose, jasmine, and Cambodian oud. In a way, cross between Kilian's Rose Oud and Aoud Rose Petals, Montale. The oud is more mellow and richer than Montale.

    Oud is addictive! The Al Haramain I have doesn't seem to have too much projection, but it's not very warm yet. I find the warmer, the more projection so I'm not applying as much at this time. Also, it could be the nature of cambodi oud. I'm new as well, but Cambodian oud is said to be sweeter and more mellow than Indian and who knows what oud Montale uses.

    This is a long thread with a lot of good, old advise. There are other oud threads as well with info. The men's threads have a ton of oud discussions. You should find good European sources for oud. There's also an oud group.

    Hi all! im new to the basenotes community. I will be visiting the holy lands of Saudi Arabia (Makkah & Medinah) soon and was thinking of aquiring some good quality oils. Was thinking of visiting the Ajmal and Al-Haramain stores there. Any fragrances
    that you experienced noses may suggest from these stores or any other stores in thos cities? I've been told that Musk Al Haramain is quite good, and i fell in love with the spray version of Mukhallat As-Shams by Ajmal, the first time i smelt it. i've also been
    considering Ajmal Musk Ghazelle, although have never smelt it. I also want to acquire some good Bakhoor and oud chips - any advice on where to get these from ?

    Thanks,
    Muhammed Patel.

    Looking for Oud Tree Leaves processed/distilled into an essential oil.
    Anyone have someone doing this?
    I see that they are used to make a tea, why not distilled, or processed into an absolute...?

    This is one of the main reasons why I've started to look for oud in the net.
    Since the western communities have started to focus their attention on these ancient oils, I thought that they will be able to procure some of the rarest and most exquisite ouds one would not find anywhere.
    If Oriscent's oils, despite his prices, and the other online stores' oud oils deliver what they promise, I'll definately be a loyal customer of their's.
    Make note, though, big names do not always sell the best there is. One Indian oil vendor, who travels from Saudi to the far east and vise versa, claimed that Al Qurashi buys from him oud oils for $50 a tola and sells them for $400+.
    I can't tell you that he is telling me the truth, but from the quality I've seen in Al Qurashi's oil, I could vouch he is right.
    Oud has become so rare these days and aquiring them is by no means easy, but I've decided to take the risk, scrificing some of my humble cash for the sake of stumbling upon a few drops of vintage and premium oils, and savor the scent of this oil of legends.


    Though I have enjoyed some of the ASAQ oils, my latest one which is called the wondrous musk ( Musk Ajeeb ) wasn't to my expectation. I don't know how this might work. Just buy normal agarwood oil and start storing them so that they start aging. Are there any special storage techniques for accomdating agarwood oil.

    I want to try a few different ones. $90 for an ok one sounds like a good deal to me!

    you notice with Taha's ouds it dosent matter what it starts out like....by the time it comes close to its base it smells amazing!

    I have recently bought a non aged Hindi from RK sons. Its called double super oudh. The smell is good but the dry down is more like camphor. I have only experienced sweet hay as well as tobacco in my recent Hindi.

    But definitely worth a try, sample first and then off you go with your opinion.
