    I wouldn't be surprised if they wear what you and I wear plus high grade oud oils.
    And of course Burberry London.

    When he wakes up, hedonist will solve the problem for us.

    I suspect that Arabian men use more perfume than their wives, so, if any, it's the opposite - the wife smells of the husband's scent. And woe if she smells of a different type of oud!

    Who knows, they can use Le Male or Jovan Musk, in a pure gold bottle, of course.

    But i think that they use the most expensives oud oils that we cant even write the name correctly.

    Well, some designer but mostly niche.
    Oud oils of the highest grade.
    Some mukhallats that are created bespoke for the person commissioning it.

    LOL. Clever!

    And the reason why I think a Sultan only wears bespoke.

    Yes, but no one actually needs that much. If you think about it, the number of wearings for the price is quite reasonable and the longevity is outstanding.

    actually, Amouage Opus VI really smells so "royal" fit for a king, pricey but still within reach, very well blended.

    No wonder the Ottoman Empire is in the thriving, enviable shape it's been in, for the last century or so.
