    Lol! Where and which one do I start? Each one is so unique but so good. I've however seen one person write either on BN or Fragrantica that the Attars apart from Tribute and Homage are not all that, but that is his or her view........ I personally love all the Amouage attars and would recommend them all. Each one that I've are so unique and so well composed its like asking yourself when you have a lot of children who is your favourite child.........and I have 16 of them....attars that is! Yes, yes I know I'm nuts and an addict......

    Hi!
    My name's Lyn & I'd like to join Amanon too.
    Mine's a classic story - started on the soft stuff in the 1960's (Misouko, Joy, etc.), then was introduced to Mysore Sandal, patchouli, ylangy-ylang oils, etc. by friends in London, had it under a bit of control for a while during active parent duties, but then graduated to the real stuff - Amouage attars.
    Nothing else will do!
    Don't agree that Homage/Tribute are the only decent ones.
    The only thing saving me is that some are too strong for me to wear here & vet's bills!

    I enjoyed smelling a few of these attars but I couldn't help being reminded of Muslim street vendors.

    If you go to Brooklyn or Harlem you can find street vendors selling many exotic attars for $3/5 dollars a vile. They aren't Amouage quality of course but they are in a similar genre. Ie. Kush Red Musk etc.

    Yes, but most of the other houses' low end attars that I've tried (admittedly not that many) have not been a patch on the Amouage ones - not to say that it wouldn't be fun to be let loose in the Middle East & really discover stuff!
    A lot seem to use more artificial ingredients, but the Amouage ones that I've tried so far (Tribute, Homage, Al Shomoukh, Molook, Silver Oudh, sandalwood, rose, Badr al Bedour, Salamah) have all been pretty distinct & lacking that generic 'off' note that the cheap ones seem to share.

    I wasn´t too impressed with the Sandalwood attar either. Really liked Asrar and Al Mas though, but the one I ended up buying last time was Tayyiba. Delicious!

    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
    The Amouage Sandalwood (that I have had for a few years) is definitely Mysore imo - less strong than that which was available in the 1960's/70's, but the best that I have managed to find here in recent times. It has absolutely no 'off' notes (which new ones can).Don't expect much sillage, but it has the true sandalwood scent.

    OAK (kholoudh) is very nice and powerfully tenacious but for some reason I was not wowed. Great as a single scent and for layering but for me lacked a certain wow factor. For the price I've smelt better oudhs that is a single oudh and not a blend. To me OAK is definitely a blend of Hindi and cambodi

    I was very excited to get a bottle of the rare Sandal attar but honestly have not used it that much. It is a bit overwhelming. Just a tiny drop behind the ear is causing nose fatigue for me.

    Ok, this is frustrating, I have been outbid again on an Amouage Attar. A USED Asrar 12ml just sold on EBAY ...ridiculous thing is, the winner paid about the same price as you can buy a new one online. This was a USED bottle!!!! People get hyped up bidding and get carried away. They paid $195 including shipping, and I can get it new for $207 from Dubaishop.com!!!!. I guess I will stick to retail and forget EBAY...If you were the winner, I didn't mean to pick on you, Congrats!!!

    Haha - not guilty!
    Someone listed an older Homage at a mad price, but re-listed it reduced - still no cheaper than available elsewhere online.

    I thought about bidding on that. I think a lot of people like the convenience of US shipping so they're willing to bid higher on it. Also, factor in shipping from Dubaishop as at least $25.

    mmm, true - this guy ships fast & cheap (to the U.K. anyway) & has 'old' Homage/Tribute 12ml, plus apparently other attars that are not online.

    Very nice place to deal with. I ordered something from him a while ago and couldn't have been happier. That old tribute is very tempting...and I already own that one!

    True about Universalperfumes...I bought a 30ml bottle of Tribute from him for $507 shipping included...I've seen it going for $600 on EBAY new in box...You just have to look...EBAY isn't always the best deal...I've ranted and raved when someone outbids me and pays more than retail for a half bottle of something...But my laptop only sits and stares at me...

    People seem to think that ebay must always be cheapest, maybe they can't use a search engine!
