    It is something most foreigners have not know about my culture.

    This clip shows how to make it.

    The bottles in this blog was from the souvenir shop in a palace whcih is really welknown for its fragrances and the wanderful structure.

    The 2 big bottles can somewhat categorize as Eau de Cologne, while the small flacon is called 'Nam Prung' and it is really potent like Eau de Parfum.

    Nam Ob Thai is more unisex, but Nam Prung has the blust of floral so it is faminine fragrance.

    You can take a tour by watching these clips. Sorry, I can not find English clip.

    Nam Ob Thai is not exacly a perfume, but Nam Prung (small flacon) is basically Thai classic perfume.

    There are so many scents of Nam Prung, they uses Thai aromatic wood, incense, Thai flowers, etc.

    But I am not sure about the longevity and silage because it use only natural ingredients.

    Oh I am not worried, but thank you. I will be happy if he does not forget !
    I would like very much to smell all these natural ingredients blended in a pretty fragrance. Eau de cologne or de parfum, it does not matter.
    I am so excited but I must wait until the end of january

    Try here:

    My husband knows I'm interested in perfume (all those bottles on the dresser may have given it away) and just bought me a bottle. A colleague of his (an older Thai gentleman) was reminiscing about this scent, and said it was associated with ghosts.

    All the patchouli in the world, and a nice clean woody note.
