    Default "Aloes of Ish" Where did he go? Anyone know?

    Hello, Basenoters, I am new to the forum, but years ago I discovered the perfumer "Aloes of Ish" here and i was very happy with his products.. I went to buy some more perfumes from him and he had completely vanished and his site was dead and nobody seems to know where he went! Does anyone here know anything about him or what happened to him? I know he had a bad accident and wasn't 100%.

    I believe you will find him under Royal Bengal Ouds at etsy:

    FYI
    "Aloes of Ish" is totally different seller than Royal Bengal Ouds.

    Royal Bengal Ouds is selling good quality oud and attars made by himself. And start selling online not long ago.

    "Aloes of Ish" was very long seller on eBay.
    "Aloes of Ish" sales very cheap not pure oud and natural oils, musk oils, ambergris ets……..
    Usually he sells very cheap around 10-20 dollars per 3 ml. bottle and always include one 3 ml. bottle of some other oil free with every order kind of like buy one get one free.
    If you point out to him that oil he sold you is not pure, he replays very rude and nasty.

    "Aloes of Ish" is Mean, Rude, And Disrespectful to Others evil person. USA base

    Royal Bengal Ouds is very nice person and is pleasure to dealt with. Canada base

    Thank you very much for your reply! I have contacted him and am awaiting his response. Again, THANK YOU for your help; I was wondering if I was ever going to find such a great source of sandalwood oil again!

    Well, I never had a problem with Ishmael of "Aloes" and I bought a lot of stuff from him, all of which I liked. I know perfectly well his stuff was not 'top grade"; (hardly anybody could afford it if it was) so I never felt the need to point this out to him. Plus I have smelled some of the "top grade" stuff (oud, sandalwoods, etc) and found it is not necessarily "better-smelling" than the lower grades; it's a matter of personal preference, after all. For example, I would be happier with a second-grade sandalwood oil that smells the way I like sandalwood perfume to smell, than a top quality sandal oil that does not meet my personal 'scent standard", however expensive it might be.

    I doubt that you have receive pure sandalwood oil from "Aloes of Ish"
    As I explained above I have dealt with "Aloes of Ish" around 3 years ago on ebay.
    And the oud and the oils was not pure and he was very rude and nasty person, not just that but he also never returns my money he agreed on the return but he open a case with eBay after I return his oils for a refund and lie to them that he received empty package from me.
    He use to have also web site selling the same garbage as what he use to sell on eBay

    thanks for the correction @peter4ptv,
    I assumed there'd only be one oud selling Ish

    I don’t know where he went, but his early Tribute knockoff was excellent.
