Turat 2 today by ASO a very bold striking blend with musk at its heart
Sultan Pasha's Jardin de Borneo Gardenia. Like a walk in the park, a contrast to the grey Christmas skies.
SP Aurum d'Angkhor
My experimental blend # 6. It has ruh kewra, Persian rose otto, ruh hina flower, 20 yes old patchouli, oud from Agarwood Assam, an all natural sandalwood laden shamama, wild ruh khas and few more crazy things. It is basically a green resinous monster!
SP Nankun Kodo.
AWI East Timur Santalum Album Sandalwood Oil. Close to Mysore. Gingery. You might almost want to drink it. It's like an all in one elixir whose drydown is a stunning perfume that you may not expect.
2 by Mellifluence before bed, a very quick test. been on skin for 20mins or so and I've rubbed the oils in slightly
Somewhat dark but perhaps not "rich" like with a Sultan Pasha attar, comes across as ethereal. The musk is there but definitely not at the forefront like with ASO's musk attars.
yes, very pepperminty and sweet, I'm not getting too much oud but it's probably mixing in and not poking through.
I've bought 4 oils and was kindly sent another 4, so have a load of new scents to get through! I'm still not totally familiar with the oils I bought Abdullah back in, oh, June or so? time flies
p.s. did anyone notice that I'm now a staff member?! You all better be on your best behaviour!
Wore Vetiver Nocturne by Bortnikoff. Very surprising. The Thai Oud hides well within the florals.
Dear Sproaty congratulations! We are indeed in good hands
Racine is one of my favorite scents from last year. Especially as it settles and you get that beautiful subtle aroma of labdanum, resins and lichen in perfect harmony. That small amount of musk makes them smell like they were being heated on embers. I feel that a more pronounced musk note would kill this effect.
Dewania from Sultan Pasha (earlier today).
Thebes 1 by Sultan Pasha. This from my second sample. I really should buy the 3ml next time...
Sheikh Al Faransi - Not Artisanal but a superb Attar composition from the talented Al Faransi.. love the play in this between Wood and Ambergis notes..
Sheikh Al Faransi is a completely natural attar. I asked them about this. and so they answered. Sheikh Al Faransi is also a great attar to me
EO Musc 1984
half swipe few days ago -- pal's Maltese dog was stuck to my leg
full swipe couple of days ago -- A feral cat followed me to the parking lot/car and stared at me for a good 20 secs
Are these signs of something ominous, or effects of Musk?
Truffe Blanche by Sultan Pasha. Nice lemon. I can recognize the truffles. Earthy but not dirty. To be honest, I much prefer the dirty lemon of Eau Sauvage.
That one reminds me of baking with my Grandma in her kitchen. It also turned me around on Rosa Alba. Excellent stuff.

SP Encens Chypre. Great stuff.

Malik Al Taif (ALD) earlier today (on skin) - an olfactive orchestra of deer musk, rose (Taif and Indian) and oud. The scent progression on skin is far more complex than on clothes. Starts off with rose, then whilst it was slightly windy in mosque, I could clearly smell deer musk (just like a maceration in sandalwood), followed by an Indian oud, always dignified, never too loud. The oud part was a revelation to me as I 1st thought that someone else was wearing oud! In the later stages, the rose become almost like a dry down of a rose absolute - sweeter and ambery. There is also a hint of saffron making a bit dry and austere along with that humming oudiness.
I wish I could afford 10 bottles of it!
Some swipes of @RisingPhoenix 's "Man Musk" on top of my fingers - a lovely vintage-styled chypre redolent of scents from the 80s
