AA Oud Gulfam.
Mysuru Ambur by Imperial Oud. This is GREAT
Yes, it is a perfect vintage oil. The secret lies in the Santal that is used in this maceration. The best ever for maceration.
I can’t shake off the distinct and disjointed Omani lime (limoo Amani in Farsi) note in this sandal. Wonder if with time the conviction gets better integration.
What to do on sick days at home? Put a blend together.
Project tropical island jungle:
Kinamantan: for its vaporous dusty and high pitched note
Abdus selam: for its quiet, inner peace, brown dark green blue oceanic vibe and spices
Green papua: for its jungly green spicy sweet complimentary notes
Syed ascent: to take it up to the skies and go extra terrestrial. Also to bring out earth notes
Oud Royale Sri Lanka: for oomph more spice touch of fruit and accentuate the blue green
Our royle no 5: for its mud, forest floor, deep dark green black brown and gently smoky notes
Sandal to give volume softness touch of butter and soothing qualities.
Will let it rest a while and try later and see how the proportions work. What is a Abscent what is dominating. What’s lost what’s not. Make adjustments and then try two versions: oil vs alcohol dilution and atomizer application. To the latter I may add touch of petit grain, oakmoss and Aglaia absolute. Tbd.
Wow...sounds amazing...all the best.
Thinking the name should be project: sea to sky. An apt name I think for the oceanic vibe of orsl and Abdus selam meet the earth and jungle notes of gp or5 and then ascend to the skies with kinamantan and Syed ascent.
Bet it smells divine ! Nice composition
It's @Oudamberlove the 2nd!
I would love to hear your review.
I know the PNG and Filaria will dominate, and there’s no escaping Kinamantan’s highs, but I’m most curious as to the effect of the Walla Patta.
In due time. Plan to leave it rested and gently heated by keeping the vial in my palms and shaken.
I am thinking the salt spice and touch of fruit in Abdus selam and orsl will add a dimension to an otherwise Woody earthy green jungle scent.
Kinamantan and Syed ascent for top notes plus the spice and walla bomb opening of orsl
Gp and Abdus selam for mid
Or5 for base but also the super incense drydown of orsl
Sandal to bring a softness and buttery suave quality to overall composition.
Will see what it will be like. In my minds nose and eye I see this totally working. I am thinking If anything, it will be a ratio thing I may have to play with. I may need to up Abdus selam and gp. Maybe Syed accent too. Strongly Doubt or5 orsl kinamantan need any more presence.
X1 is one drop
X2 two drops
I had added a few drops of taif rose and a few drops of siberian deer musk tincture to my sample vial of Mysru Amburu a few months back and just tried it today thanks to this post. It has turned into a wonderful ambery musky blend with a little airiness due to the rose.

Respected Oudamberlove, just try Mysore Santal, Ceylon Oud (any one from any vendor) and Musk. Exquisite result will be there. First, honey syrupy texture. Even colour is like honey gotten from sugar cane fields. Fragrance is multi-dimensional. When I initiated this maceration, I wasn't sure about that much stunning result as I was entangled in the popular belief that sweet Malaysian Oud suits Musk more than any other Oud. Now I say a big NO to that popular belief.
Just Walla Patta Oud, and then Santal (again just Mysore), and Musk (be it Siberian, Tibetan or Kashmiri). I found Siberian more beautiful in this recipe.
Now I am addicted to wearing Walla Patta Oud blended in vintage Musk maceration.
I will definitely include that recipe in my blends-to-do list. I will use my oldest maceration (5yrs) of Siberian musk in Mysore. I’ll post the results. The Sandalwood was from RK&Sons (Amit Tandon), it was not great when young, but 5 years later it smells good in the maceration.
I know you have a similar blend with a floral element (jasmine), but I don’t have a good jasmine oil so I will use blue lotus instead for a small test batch. Will post about it when completed.
Zak and JK both offer Jasmine Sambac.
Blue Lotus!!! What else can be more beautiful than this. But, alas! How difficult it is to find quality Lotus oil!
I must be lucky then, because out of 3 blue lotus oils that I have, one is really good. The cotton swab test gives an uncluttered blue lotus aroma, that stays nice till and throughout drydown.
As for Jasmine Sambac (sampaguita), I associate the smell with funerals, so i can’t use it in blends
Just did. I’ll let it she and report back. Do you recommend gently heating it to maybe 40-50 degrees or just leave it at room temp?
3x sandal (Io 02 mysore, rpp timor and touch of celestial gold from Tyson)
with Siberian musk
and 3x ceylon: adh2, ceylon royale and one good drop of the beast orsl
Just add few drops of Hindustan 1. Blue lotus all other things blue Oud hay and barn combined in one! I would have bought a told of this oil if it was possible.
I have only one blue lotus oil (celestial), so nothing to compare it to . What is the brand that you recommend?
