Thread: Oud Shamash

  1. #1

    Default Oud Shamash

    Currently really enjoying Oud Shamash, and am finding a common note/accord shared with Timbuktu. In my estimation it is either cypriol or the type of incense used. I would love to know what it is.

    Could someone who is familiar with both care to comment. Calling drseid!

    Wish I could be more help Mick, but I tried to rummage around for my Timbuktu sample for comparison as it has been ages since I tested/wore it, but it just wasn't on I'm afraid. That sample bag of mine has gotten *way* too big and unwieldy to find anything, and after 20 minutes of desperate looking I had to give up the hunt. So while very familiar with Oud Shamash I just cant remember the individual notes of Timbuktu enough to form a proper comparison. I guess one thing that could indicate some stylistic similarities is the two are both Duchaufour compositions, of course...

    Thanks drseid - next time to test Timbuktu have a think.

    Oud Shamash is the business though, great stuff. It's like Duchaufour took the best elements from some of his previous work (Timbuktu - cypriol and dry spices, Jub XXV - creamy incense) and added a splash of oud, everything comes together in a beautiful synergy. Each time I wear this I am loving it more. I can easily see why you rate this as one of BD's crowning achievements.

    Now you have me guessing and wondering also. I have bottles of both but never connected the two. Will give it a shot to see if my awful nose can pick up any commonalities.

    Only wore Timbuktu once or twice, but I sure didn't remember anything similar either.

    I do think Oud Shamash smells a lot like Mancera's Sand Oud (and to a lesser extent, Robert Piguet Oud).

    Now that sounds quite divine. Gotta hunt for a sample soon.
