    Re: Elixir Attars Discussion Thread

    I’ve never had that issue. I just checked and it works perfectly fine.

    Re: Elixir Attars Discussion Thread

    I see a lot more people on Instagram talking about it then on here. I’ve noticed that basenotes doesn’t quite cover the entire scope of these perfumers. At least not their fan bases anyways. Ahmed...

    Re: Elixir Attars Discussion Thread

    Mythique is my favorite from Elixir. I feel all the notes come together so beautifully and with his other offerings they sometimes get lost in note soup. I feel like when Ahmed is on point he’s...

    Ahmed is usually really good with correcting these sorts of things. I hope this turns around for ya! Hiccups always happen with these smaller artisan houses.

    One thing I can say with confidence is that Ahmed does tobacco really well! If you’re on the fence I’d say go for it. I haven’t been let down with his tobacco scents but they do lean a bit muddy in...

    Spirit of Arabia has such a nice traditional Bakhoor feel to it. I really enjoy how dusty, dry, spicy, and incense laden it is.

    Muhtashan is like a denser/deeper version of Fumee Royale if anyone was wanting that same experience. He does the traditional Arabic Attars the best.

    Re: Elixir Attars Discussion Thread

    Yeah the note soup is something I’ve noticed shows up a lot in the Attar game. But you’re right. It’s hit or miss. I’ve finally really come around to Amular after letting it sit awhile. Fumeé Royal...

    Received 3ml’s of Mythique (2020 batch) yesterday. I was completely surprised at how much this smells like RPP Sicilian Vanilla but better. The opening saffron note overpowers the composition for a...

    Re: Elixir Attars Discussion Thread

    Evolution is wild. That’s why I enjoy Arabic perfumery. I feel in some ways that even though Attars are no longer Attars, there’s still these little glimpses of ancient tradition that transcended...

    Re: Elixir Attars Discussion Thread

    Yeah brother Elixir Attars is about as middle eastern as it gets. Every scent is an experience of middle eastern/Arabic culture. Ghaliyas are a traditional style Attar that feature...

    I love everything Ahmed is doing right now. I’m currently awaiting the arrival of Mythique, Cohiban coffee and Cohiban extreme. Has anyone had a chance to try the new version of Mythique yet?

    They make new batches whenever compositions run out. Thankfully Elixir Attars doesn’t work on the whole “fomo” marketing that seems to be synonymous with natural houses these days.

    A lot of the best compositions often have very little people talking about them. Hype doesn’t always equal a better product. There wasn’t anybody talking about Dixit and Zak when they released their...

    It’s a rather beautiful, clean, vintage scent. I highly recommend it. I was thrown off a bit when I first smelled it because my expectations were something earthy, spicy, and masculine but what it...

    I can tell you right now with Amular, it’s EDP version won’t change much. It’s a bright, citrusy, summery fragrance backed by oak moss. From start to finish it’s mainly citrusy lemon, orange, and...

    It’s interesting that you made the Brindaban connection with Amular. To my nose, this has more similarities with Amber Cologne than it does Brindaban. It’s all citrus/florals to my nose. Very bright,...
