Goodluck with that.
It is very interesting to read everyone's introductions, i love the community here and would like to introduce myself:
My name is Abdullah, i am 39 and live in Newcastle, UK.
I first became very interested in natural scents about 24 years ago, i used to buy essential oils mainly and enjoy the aroma when heating them in an oil burner. I found my sense of smell seemed to be a lot more intense than those around me, certain smells would have such an impact i would want to be as far away from them as possible such as bleach, air fresheners, modern perfumes and cosmetics. So it had a lot of draw backs when i was younger.
About 7 years ago i became Muslim and was introduced into the world of oud and attars, at first i really didn't like oud, one friend gave me a swipe in his shop, i really wanted to wash it off, but the scent still stayed. I prayed my salah and while i was praying, the smell of the oud became more enjoyable, it became a much loved scent soon after. That really opened up the doors for the search of the best ouds i could find, and shortly after i decided i wanted to make my own natural blends as they were so hard to find around.
I bought several of Ensars ouds and fell in love with agarwood. Now i make my own attar as a full time job and i couldn't be happier, it has always been my dream to work for myself and follow my passion.
I came a long way from, being a painter to a DJ and finally to a perfumer.
I now have 2 children and one is already addicted to oud at the age of 4! I once walked in to my front room and found her painting her legs with my agarwood oil.... about £80 worth of oil on her, i was not sure whether to laugh or cry
