This Ebay seller, Avinash, (arabiandilight) whom I know well and from whom I have purchased several items from is based in Oman and almost all his products are obtained regionally from distributors in the Middle East. Don't know why he listed it as Paris unless he wanted to emphasize that it was made in France. By the way - when Ebay seller arabiandilight states: expedited shipping from outside US as his shipping method, he uses DHL Express and it arrives from Oman in three days.
    Hi

    Did you manage to ask him for a little further clarification?

    Regards

    As to the Kabul Aoud I didn't, as I know that this is not a product the Paris boutique sells.

    Just received a decant of Kabul aoud. I'm getting some spices and incense. There is something slightly sweet which could be dried fruits. The combination is reminding me of amouage jubilation xxv with more woods or oud. Myrrhe imperiale? Maybe a touch of similarity.
    This doesn't smell like a montale but rather an amouage. All I can say now is that it's a more oudy jubilation xxv.
    Edit: getting some similarity with black afgano as well.

    That might be the melilot which you are smelling that reminds you of the dried fruits.

    I'm still trying to figure out which fragrance it's similar to. It's very familiar. Certainly some similarity to jubilation xxv but I'm thinking it's another amouage. What do u think it is?
