    do his attars smell like his ouds? with the "clean" smell? or are they more like his recent perfumes?

    New to the thread guys and I am big fan of Tahas work, I am currently wearing suka cita and itís almost narcotic in the feeling it gives you. Imagine if oud was crack cocaine and youíre about there. It has that melon/banana peel sweetness with an almost herbal incense chinese quality as you delve deeper.... oud heaven..... has anyone tried his new high grade Cambodian?

I could be completely wrong on those materials though. Overall it feels like the scent of fresh morning dew on a foggy springtime morning just before sunrise. You know the feeling when the air is warm but the breeze softly bites your skin? Oud Fougere captures that moment. Itís fantastic.
    The version before this one was even better

    I feel like Oud Fougere is something I’d buy multiple bottles of. It felt very similar to the way Sultan Pasha approaches fougeres with that ultra rich, resinous base. Excellent stuff. Is Agar Parisien close to Oud fougere?

    I would say no and yes. Similar in greatness to me. I have Parisien in attar and when I saw the perfume I had to have it as it is one of my favorites. I have only wore the new fougere once as after the first wearing it seemed lighter to the original so I put it aside to age. The previous fougere was darker in color and tone to me.

    Received my decant of Soryo No Kairo from strifeknot today. Thanks to him! What an amazing creation. I have the Attar, and it’s amazing Taha was able to recreate the smell of the Attar from 7-8 years ago so perfectly. I am enjoying it immensely. I have tried a couple of his Attars which contain musk and I sure hope (once he gets things resolved-Godspeed to him) he brings one of them out. No denying he has a great nose for fragrances.

    Wearing Agar Attar! Wow this is truly an universal oud. I see all the facets of Ouds from different regions as it keep developing on me. At one instance, i felt that i am wearing Kinam Attar. It could be due to the Brunei profile aspect in it.

    That sounds great! I was just about to make my first post here, asking about Agar Attar. I have tried quite a few of Taha's oils when I visited him at his place in Kuala Lumpur, like 2, 3 years ago but since then haven't smelled anything by him. While I love a good oud oil, I prefer in general a perfume (spray) over oil. I'm selling my War & Peace, Baikal Gris and Antiquity bottles so will have an additional 600 USD. That could either go towards a few Bortnikoffs, some Ensar oils/PP, a combo of both or Agar Attar perfume. I am tempted as I'd love a sprayable perfume with oud-iflore (as in, only note is oud) and I like the idea of having all these regional profiles in one. Of course tho, price and ml is a point to consider. I'm usually a heavy sprayer, as my skin is quite dry and I live in the tropics where perfume vanishes faster when you're out and about. On the other hand, I could imagine wearing AA rather in the evenings, when relaxing at home under the AC...

    How many sprays do you guys/girls go for with Agar Attar?

    Hakiyat Perfumes just released Taha’s first non Oud based perfume with what seems like a huge dose of Oakmoss and woods for a really great price. Anyone thinking about grabbing it?

    Thanks for the heads up. Very tempting. I wonder if it’s 100% natural.

    Interesting. It sounds pretty similar in style to Agar Parasien, so I may have to pass due to redundancy unfortunately...but I’m curious to hear from folks who try it! It sounds amazing.

    Was gonna buy a xerjoff but after seeing this I might have to try out his oud oils. The sample pack with 5 in it sounds nice.

    Here's the description of Perintis, the fragrance Taha created for Hikayat
    An original blend by Taha Syed (Agar Aura) - for Hikayat Fragrances.

    Imagine walking through deep tropical jungles. Rays of sunlight shining between the canopies, warming the damp jungle soil subtly.

    A flurry of scents hit you.

    Inhale the strong smell of woods, ferns, herbs, florals and spices, laced with the clean breezy air of the natural environment.

    Now, imagine all that, and bottle it up.

    Uplifting. Soothing. Calming.

    That is "Perintis" - a malay word which translates to "Pioneer".

    Is it a Chypre? Is it a Fougere? Is it Arabian or Oriental? It's not all of that, but it reminds you of all of that. Blurring the lines of genres.

    HIKAYAT itself means tales, stories, legends, history and narrations.

    We believe that fragrances that really connect with us are those that tell stories in our lives.

    Achieving that through scent, is our objective. Sharing it with you, is our mission.

    Let this sole, single release be the Pioneer in our fragrant journey, and we gladly welcome all of you to tag along with us.

    Scent breakdown :
    Bitter Zesty Opening, sweet woods & spices then take the stage , Minty/Breezy nuances, transitioning into a more soothing wood scent, with underlying hints of mossy green throughout the drydown.

    Some might describe it as medicinal, sweet woody incense, while others say it reminds them of the wet jungle earth.

    Part of the ingredients used :
    Sandalwood (santalum album sp.) , Blue Cypress, Patchouli, Frankincense, Lavender, Star Anise, Oakmoss and others.

    ** Perintis contains natural oakmoss. If you are allergic to it, you may want to avoid this blend.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Big list of niche splits.
    For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov

    Mind to share what makes you think the name is horrible?
