    Default What oud would you buy with a large budget?

    hey all:

    If you had USD $1,000 (plus or minus a few hundred $) to spend on an oud oil, what would you buy? This is probably the most I'd ever spend at one time, so I'm asking for your dessert island pick, not your "I'm a rich Saudi prince and this is a throwaway" pick. Make sense?

    Probably two or three from Agar Aura. I hear nothing but amazing things about this craftsmen. He’s highly regarded as one of the best Oud distillers out there and he does it all by hand. I’d love to try some one day. They’re all wild, high quality distillations and are some of the most sought after in the community.

    Agree, Agar Aura is very highly regarded by the connoisseurs and the prices are upper end. Many asked for his advise when they were getting their oud business started. I want the 4K.

    Another guy, Al Shareef is very skilled and sources material that very few people legally/easily can, Im looking to pick up a few from him and not just oud.

    Ensar sometimes releases ouds from his personal collection, I can only imagine...

I’d be cautious buying anything from them. Time and time again the head perfumer/distiller Alex has been called out in the Oud community as being a fraud.

    The current Koh Kong from Agar Aura, is where I’d go.

    I would go for something from Agar Aura. I own a ton of stuff from Agar Aura for a reason. I have tried ouds from other companies but for me Agar Aura is the benchmark.
    I haven't tried Koh Kong 4K yet but I am sure it is amazing. I own Royal Sumatra and it is amazing.

    I would say al Shareef’s “al Malek” series would be the only place I’d spend big. The Malek al malayzi and al ceen are easily among the nicest ouds I’ve smelled.

    For my $1,000, at this very moment in time I would get 2.5ml of Al Shareef's Jamaal (850usd) and blow the remaining on either 1 Hindi from Taj , EO's ZAZA ZEN or OUDBASE's FUNKMEISTER.

    If i were you, I’ll wait until Ensar 'offers' again Kinam Rouge at 800-850 the 3gr bottle, which will be soon, and would keep the rest for a nice dinner while wearing it with your woman.

    Easy to wear, great and extremely well accepted, and complimented, by people around you.
