    I got them from here. http://www.asf-dubaishop.com
    Only fees were the fed ex charge to the US. and they all had labels on them so I knew which was which!!!
    Currently wearing Oud Ishaq from Ensar oud and Salamah!! Amazing!!!!
    I keep hearing that they are not available in the US but I kept looking for someone to sell to me here and finally found them!
    I have a bit of an addiction with attar's/oud/ mixes. Throw in the straight razor's, knives, guns etc and it is an ongoing issue!!!

    I was very close to purchasing Tribute, but last minute I read about batch inconsistencies, and I just don't want to risk that kind of money. I might reconsider when I hear differently.

    In your honest opinion, which is the best?

    Homage has been on my radar, but I shy away due to the price.

    I'd be curious to hear a ranking from str8shooter too. Homage, regrettably, seems to have been watered down, or at least to suffer from Creed-type batch problems. My favorite sub $500 I smelled in a store in Italy are the ones I bought, Tribute and Molook. I also loved a couple of over $500 (which I didn't buy), forgot the names, one was a sort of oud with a potent dark musk, another one the pure oud (which was almost $2,000).

    I'm still trying to understand which of the attar smelled like rotten parmesan (though, to be honest, it is possible that the store tester had gone rancid). Another one started like rotten fish, but then after 30 mins it became a regular, and pleasant, oud.

    A worthy addiction as the attars from Amouage are among the finest frags they do.

    Ranking these for me is like ranking the difference between my rifles, pistals and shotguns. They all have a different use.
    I tend to think of them as being "bright" or "dark". And then there are the Oud ones, silver oud and Oudh Al Masarat which delve off into a different area for me as I love my Oud's!!!!! I actually have them grouped right now as that. This will definately take a minute to think on....

    that is NICE moreda!! How do you post a pic here? does it have to be a link/url????

    Congrats! When does your Homage Attar date from? I tried the modern reformulation of that one last week and unfortunately they've really ruined it. The older bottle is quite beautiful but the modern one is so harsh and edgy by comparison.

    Such a shame as it was a beautiful quality scent.

    I'm sorry to be negative - those bottles are gorgeous! - but there was a thread here recently where someone called Amouage to get information on their attars and Amouage said that the only two attars they make are Homage and Tribute. All the rest that they sell (most notably on Zahras) are counterfeits.

    That being said, this is the internet and information is unreliable and I know nothing.

    Have you guys bought these at the Amouage stores? I'm really curious and would love to try them if it can be confirmed that the guy who says he called Amouage was wrong.

    Rogalal:

    Amouage makes dozens of attars. But they only market two in the US, Homage and Tribute. I don't know what was said in the call, but I assume that the interpretation is that they do not guarantee the other attars, as they're not distributed by them here. But nothing prevents a company in the Gulf, say, to ship stuff here. In Italy, there's a store that sells (or sold) 18 of them. I understand that in the Gulf there are several dozens different ones. I've never purchased any Amouage at Zahras so I don't know about this case in particular4. The ASAQs I got there smell legit - or at least very good.

    I thought it was ok. FEDEX from UAE $90. No tax and the cost on them was good. I would not want to make many small purchases but 1 or 2 large ones works well.

    Dear,

    soem attars are discontinued .
    Yet i got them from a direct source at amouage.
    A friend of mine works there and they literally blended some bottles for me.

    so it is wrong informantion , amouage produces allot of attars for locale market.

    you should ask your friend whether they have indeed watered down stuff (like Homage, or the alcohol perfumes Gold and Ubar).

    Homage differ from batch to batch.. so n reason to panic.
    sometiems the oud is more pronounced some times the rose or the orange blossom like notes.
    i have 3 different batches.

    All the edp vintages are reformulated.... gold... has almost no silver frankincense any more.... it is more synth.

    Moreda:

    Thanks for verifying what we'd been saying for months. That Amouage cannot maintain consistent attar quality among batches is a little troublesome. How is a customer supposed to know what he's buying? They don't even put the year, as wine bottles do. If you can smell (which is rare), you cannot even be sure that it's a tester from the same batch.
