    I wish I had something to base this on. Past purchases of samples prior to buying have been the same. Granted that I have not had samples for all the different ones I have but 5 of them yes.
    Clearly the ones like Silver Oudh and the two Oud's they have must be blends and therefore different over time though.

    We don't have attars here, so we were basing our discussions on Homage, which is a blend and thus should be more stable than others. Yet even that seems to have fluctuated in recent years. Perhaps, it is a thing of the past few years. I also supsect that Amouage is following IFRA even in their attars, which would be a total shame.

    I'm Conus in Houston. Bought them over the internet from UAE. I've gotten samples from the perfumed court prior to buying but most of the ones in 12ml or 30ml I had never smelled. LOL It was a HUGE blind buy!!!!

    I am aware that all of these attars hold a special place in your collection. But, just say ,god forbid, that there was some natural disaster and you could only grab one and only one ..........which would one would you save ?

    As of now I am enjoying my Tribute Attar ....each time brings out more of the depth and gravitas to this masterful attar from Amouage. I wonder if anybody else feels how the comfort factor with Tribute improves with each and every wearing. My initial reaction was one of confusion as I kept getting this smoky sweet earthiness with some peat hovering in the background. Today the leather is finding a rich voice and I am loving its sounds.
    Take it from one scent fan , after 300 samples and an ever expanding collection, this Tribute Attar regardless of price is one that can't be denied a place in my top 5 or 6 list.
    Overall, I think given its solid well balanced structure, Tribute Attar will be a never boring or tedious scent for years to come.
    Was the money spent worth it with Tribute Attar?.....I think most definately as it more and more an investment for the future.

    It is over a year old and quite calm Kron. I wonder if the fact that the new ones are "young" make them less edgy? Similar to Oud? They are oils after all???

    I think it would be a toss up betweeen Tribute, Al Mas, Asrar, or Badr. But I see no situation where they all could not fit in my bug out bag with my Oud collection!!!! And if not, the gun safe is secure and Oils only get better with age!!!

    You're not in London are you? The easiest thing would be to bring it to their store and see what they can do. Otherwise, maybe try to girate the stopper in a corkscrew motion. It may have been some oil drying up inside the space between the stopper and the flacon neck. Try to shake the content to see if you can get some liquid to smoothen the stopper.

    Just pull. Really. Mine was quite stuck, but if you keep pulling and twisting it'll give up eventually. Just be steady and don't spill!

    I'm going to London for the weekend and I'm going to check out the Sandalwood and Jasmine attars, maybe the Rose Ta'if one. I may also resample Tayyiba, which I tried a year or so ago and found wonderful, but back then I was shy of florals and thought it was too feminine... maybe that's changed now.

    I bid on AL SHOMUKH Attar 12ml on EBAY...Up to 200 British Pounds...STUPID EBAY didn't take my last bid of 210 pounds, 5 seconds left and EBAY kept saying "Must bid higher than current bid" I bid 210 pounds and it went for 199 so I have no idea what was wrong with EBAY. some lucky person got the bottle for 199 pounds. I am obsessed with getting some of these discontinued Attars. I guess I 'll wait and see if he was a BN'er who wants it for a split.

    Well It still has to come in and I'm praying it's right. Buying Attar's on Ebay scares me as it would be to easy to just fill with whatever....

    Whether the musk is synthetic or not is irrelevant...........Al Shomoukh is just pure sexiness that lasts for a considerable amount of time. Paul mate if you got the real stuff than you got yourself a bargain and some truly amazing juice. Out of my entire collection Al Shomoukh, Majan and Tribute are my absolute favorites. Bear in mind each attar has different characteristics suitable for different situations and atmospheres.

    Would love to hear more about the Amouage Santal. I thoroughly enjoyed the Montale mysore sandalwood oil (that you can only buy in Montale shop) and would love to know how they compare.

    Good question, its very easy to put something that is not mysore sandalwood, i doubt i could tell the difference if i never smelled it before:-) the price can tell a lot, but if this sandalwood is real indian it must be old, and i read price goes up by 25 % every year....in 2009 it could be bought for 60 pounds so the price of the attar is much higher now and is in line with that..but i would like to know as well if its still real like it used to be:-)

    And on the musks:-) i believe Al Shomoukh is great! But i have noticed that i am sensitive to synthetic musks, and there are no real stuff nowdays, that's like a sure thing:-) ...that musk starts annoying me after some time, and i sometimes get something like soar note, i can not explain...i wear certain perfume and after 20 wearings, and usually only after 3_5 wearings...i keep noticing something banal and soar....and i connected this to musk, because Dia extrait has it in the base....and i don't think they use some cheap stuff in there:-) ?

    And i read one guy wrote for al shomoukh , that musk in it kills it for him:-) , its not everyone who is overly sensitive to musks....so i do believe its gorgeous perfume! Was just not sure for myself....... and the bottle there was the real thing :-) was great opportunity

    I tried Memoir for woman, i believe that one has the same white musk in it? Tested it just one time, and is yummie

    While we all are talking about Amouage Attars, which are "Must try"? I own Tribute, and (a sample of) Homage. I wonder what others I should try? I don't like florals, but I love the smokiness of Tribute...
