    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?

    Hello,
    I have just caught the oud bug and recently tried the royal oud batch 2 from Qanaat trading ham_frl. I find it a very earthy scent which i love, however i notice if I overindulge, my nose runs a little and my lips sting. This leaves me wondering about the purity. Has anyone elst sampled this oud, would appreciate some feedback.

    Thank you

    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 think reading through those numerous pages of valuable experience is useful for anyone interested in oud, and you will probably find the answer to your question there.

    For those who may be interested, http://oudh.co.uk/ are offering a 15% discount on all their products. Code: 7667bbe8a9. try their pure Cambodia oudh, its unique. I've tried their samples and each one is different to the one before. Want to try oriscents samples but a little too expensive for me at the moment.

    I ordered the sampler from oudh.co.uk and maybe my nose is spoiled by higher priced ouds but they all smelled like very low quality ouds. I know they are more affordable but not something I would want to put on my body.

    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.

    Dhabiat El-Oud,
    As a trader, from which country and what species of tree do you think the finest agarwood is distilled today? And if you were to make a recommendation to your friends where to purchase oud, where would you recommend? To whom would you refer them?

  9. #1239

    So do we have some new good place (internet stores/ebay) to try some good oudh oil at an affordable price? Something around 30-40 dollars?

    This might be a stupid question, but does anybody know whether one can buy Aoud at the markets in Marocco? A friend is travelling there soon...and I would like to ask her to bring me some...

    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've never been to Morocco so I can't answer your question from personal experience.

    Why not enjoy what you have for a time, get to know it. Perfumed Court also has samples of several makers or oud oils. I think most are blends. Zahras Perfumes carries a lot of brands including other Arabian skin care products.

    I've al ready emailed Zahra and I will try some samples form her.TPC does not ship to Bulgaria.
    I would like to hear if somone has tryed Areej Al-Mulook and find it close to some Montale scent.I realy enjoy it but I want better projection and I think I will go for a spray fragrance with alc.

    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.

    London is good idea but may be after a few mounts.For now I will ask for info and samples from Zahra.I realy enjoyed my sample mix of oud sandal rose safran musk it's intoxicating,I can't stop smelling my arm,but it's oil not alc spray and the radiance is weaker than Montale.Here in Bulgaria I can find just 10 Montale scent and none of them was what I was looking for.
    What about the Haramain how is the projection and longetivty?

    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.

    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.

    Not sure if anyone has splurged on oils from Agarwood Indonesia recently, but I picked up a bottle of his Oud Ratu and Green Gold. Both are quite lovely - especially the Ratu!

    I'm including some photos of his new packaging, as I thought it was quite nice.

    Enjoy!

    Two questions, picking up on a recent thread about oud oils and arabian oud perfumes vs Montales.

    To those of you who are familliar with the oil oils and arabian perfumes, would you say Montale Aouds smell cheap/gaudy in comparison, or are they using nice aouds, and using them tastefully?
    Depends on which one. I wear a few of them regularly and they do not feel any cheaper than more "upscale" brands like Hind Al Oud or Khaltat Hob.

    In fact they smell better than many sprays offered by many mainstream Arabian fragrance houses.
