    Thanks for the response. Here are a few on Amazon that are in my price range but probably too good to be true?

    Sellers are...
    1. Al-Muhib : Oud Hindi & Pure Cambodi - Pure Agarwood Oil from India
    2. Raja Attar Oils : 12ml Cambodia Super Maliki 100% Pure Oud oil

    Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    @Jonathan big welcome to the forum, your in the right place to explore the vast ocean of Oud and natural perfumes. I have never purchased off amazon but when i was new to Oud i did buy oils off ebay. I was going for all the "cheap" stuff and purchased lots of different types. It turned out later on i learnt these oils were not pure and i would never wear them now. I still keep them because what they did do is teach me and help train the nose. I have never dealt with these vendors so cant comment on their oils but most of the time if its too good to be true it generelly is. Oils from the same reigon can produce a different scent based on the wood, distillation style, soaking times, water type etc. Usually reigons do carry the same DNA at some stage of the scents progression from top to basenotes, however sometimes some oils do leave you stunned as to where they are from but not very often.

    This is a good idea to keep the off purchases I think. I've purchased oudh only once so far and it was a sample off of etsy. It smelled very medicinal almost like cough syrup. I did not like it. I don't know if this is what it should have smelled like but needless to say that I think I will probably be sticking to just traditional and artisinal attars for now.

    Dearest Ouddicts,

    I am a tea enthusiast who also enjoys making his own incense. I have a deep affection for handicrafts and artisanal products that cultivates the beauty of what nature gives us. I am new to oud oil. This has led me here to this forum and to this lovely community. I have been reading the wonderful and lively posts here silently as I develop my understanding of oud. I love the depth in this community that touches on the history, culture, development and trends of oud. I am excited to be on this path that promises new discoveries, opportunities and fresh experiences to be savored. It definitely takes me out of my comfort zone of being a tea enthusiast for almost 20 years.

    I have ordered samples from various vendors and look forward to exchanging notes.

    Sincerely,
    Varat

    Tea, coffee, incense and Oud are interconnected in the Arab and Far Eastern cultures... PM me if you have a website and would like to sell your teas on Ouddict.
