    Lightbulb Surrati - Tom Oud - a gorgeous oud oil from KSA

    I ordered Surrati Tom Oud from zahras.com this morning after wearing it a few times from a sample they sent me. It surprised me how much I enjoyed it when I sampled it - take Tom Ford's Oud Wood, add a bit of white musk, a soft floral note, and a touch of sweetness in the drydown (which, by the way, takes a whole day to reach) and you'll have it.

    I know (from what I've gathered) that Surrati is a relatively small company based in KSA (and pretty hard to find in the west) with a website that would make the geocities creators cringe, but has anyone else tried their offerings? I searched quite a bit and found only a handful of responses.

    I guarantee a lot of people here would love this Tom Oud that I ordered.

    They don't have their Surrati catalog up yet since they just started carrying them. The Surrati website is an abomination: http://www.surratiperfumes.net/

    You can't beat that price can you? personally I find it to be a bit sweeter than Tom Ford's and without as much white smoke. Being an oil, it lasts and lasts all day. The GF wore it nonstop for a few days when I first got it.

    Which is the cheapest place to buy this?

    from Zahras or Surrati's website (which by the way is a nightmare to navigate) or ebay?

    that ebay item is from zahra and she's offering it at the same price if you buy from ebay or buy directly from them. As for the surrati web site I don't think you can buy from there!

    Surprisingly good, especially considering most oils stay pretty close.

    Well you have my attention. I just may have to treat myself.
    I've never ordered from Zahras before. I take it they are good to deal with?

    Yep, they're great. Just send them an email with a list of what you want, they'll send you a paypal invoice, and away it goes. It'll take a few weeks to arrive. They're really good with communication and will reply to emails generally within a day.

    Hey jrd4t.

    Thanks for telling us about this oil. We guys in Australia is doing a split on it. Hopefully it is every bit as gud as Tom Ford Oud Wood. Is it 90%+ similar to TFOW ?

    I got a bottle of this today to split it with my fellow aussie basenoters.

    I have to admit that this is astonishingly identical to Tom Ford Oud Wood. I can't tell one from the other. Though I am speaking from my memory of Tom Ford Oud Wood, I'd do a side by side one of these days to confirm that. Sillage, on my skin is moderate at best, a trait that it shares with TF Oud Wood.

    I think this is a nice oil, even more so at the cheapish price. This will serve a wonderful purpose of layering everytime I wear TF Oud Wood.

    Thanks to jrd4t for the heads up.

    It really sounds a great oud scent. Do they have smaller sizes? 100ml of oud oil would last me two lifes...

    Let's bring this one back up. I believe I am getting 2ml in a trade with a fellow BNer. He stated that it's as good as TF Oud Wood. I have Oud Wood so I cannot wait to compare.

    Damn, 100ml of pure oil for $48 is damn near impossible to pass up. Now to learn about this whole decanting thing....

    Would it be recommended to mix this with some alcohol to put into an atomizer?

    I just ordered the biggie. Let me know what you'd like to do! Keep in mind that I'm a n00b at dealing with the stuff, but I'm glad to spread it around.

    Im not too sure because the oil is a mixture of essential oil and carrier oil. Some experts here will give u their views on that.

    We have Surrati here in old downtown Dubai (in Murshid bazar). I'm checking them out this coming Friday. I hear they have many TF in oil form. If only I'd find TV or CA. I know for a fact that Tuscany Leather is available at many vendors there.
