    Default Arabian Oud NYC Store

    I was in NYC last night and stumbled across the Arabian Oud store in Times Square. The storefront was beautiful and the smell emanating from inside was intoxicating. The bottles displayed in the window were very eye catching. Problem was I was rushing to catch a show. I was on the website this morning looking at their colognes and some of them really caught my interest. Has anyone purchased any of their fragrances?
    Also curious if anyone has purchased their Oud chips for burning. I would like to make a trip back in soon. Appreciate your feedback

    Haven't purchased any of their fragrances, but have tried a few at that location in NYC. Their new store in my area is planning to open in early December in the mall, so I'll be looking forward to visiting it and trying new fragrance soon.

    I don't recall the names, but what I do remember from the ones I tried was that they were all pretty potent and lasted a long time.

    I have both Kalemat and Kalemat al Sehr (Kalemat black), they are both beautiful fragrances. Both very reasonably priced too, they smell like they should cost a lot more.

    Thanks for the response. I was pleasantly surprised with the relatively low prices. Glad to hear that quality was not sacrificed.
    Kalemat is one of the few fragrances that has reviews here. My only concern is that they will be too strong for regular wear. Has that been your experience?

    Loved their store in London, despite not liking most of what I've tried. A lot of the male offerings smells like cheap designer fragrances.

    They are both quite strong so only a couple of sprays are needed but they can definitely be worn regularly.

    I own Kalemat al Sehr, and like it very much, superior longevity on my skin.

    My issue with them is their cheap bottles and leaky sprayers , I ordered Woody Intense, 20% had leaked out when I got it.

    I’ve worn Kalemat to the office without any problem — even got compliments. Just don’t overspray. The atomizer doesn’t deliver much juice with each spray, which is probably just as well.
