    Oh,its an exccellent oil and i could not word it better than you "A beautiful vibrant barn at the top falling into a wonderful honey coated spicy nutty heart, figgy jam caressing a dark sweet even slightly bitter Oudhy bottom. Oudh coated in a floral pollen where the floral coats change like seasons."Still kicking myself after not taking a chance on this and Safwaan both are really really my cup of tea.:Cooler:

    IO Cambodi Vintage 2002 - properly grown up oudy oud! Leather, little bit of cherry, smooth, well balanced are words that come to mind at the moment...
    Excellent offering for the price in my opinion...

    And powerful! Easily the most intense oud in the Blind Test.

    I second that, I pick up a note of latakia tobacco which I really like.

    zamarad - HO

    minty cola dipped bananas. with an overall elegant feel. Really nice Habz! :Thumbsup:

    Khusi - HO.

    Realistic bright purple orchid scent. Very interesting progression to a smokey orchid scent. The bad news, i'm not into flowery scents at all. I appreciate the quality but it's not for me:(

    @Arsalan its a great profile, i personally really enjoy the dark, plummy, pipe tobacco, prunes, woodsy profile.

    @alcolado glacial sometimes we appreciate quality but not profile this is normal :Thumbsup:

    Has the smoke integrated? The sweet sunshine cinnamon kissed malinau note coming out?

    Was craving a beast and I know of no bigger beast that kyara ltd2.0. Feels like 4 oils swuished to one. So dense that even a micro dot takes for ever to fully open up. At the same time red resin cambodi, old school wild proper hainan and the most bitter sweet medicinal Vietnam. Kinam oozing our of its ying yang. I happen to love the zen scent but oud at this level is. Or about the scent but the mental pleasures.

    WILL the smoke settle is the question? Right now, I can smell it all the way from beginning till the end. It has more green, grassy opening compared with Borneo 50k with similar sweet, flowery and fruity notes. But the latter notes are more prominent in the Borneo 50k and hidden beneath the green grassiness and ths smokiness in Kencana.

    My question exactly.
    And I'm not talking about the specific oil, because I've not tried it,
    but rather, I don't think smoke is a subsiding note.

    I agree with what was said above: the smokiness might not disappear but maybe it will tone down only to the drydown. Who knows. Lets see. Between Kencana and Borneo 50k, which one do you guys prefer?

    Perhaps it is apparent to you in the form of another dark aroma? Leather/tobacco?

    Kencana v3 I do get slight smoke at the start. It is blending in much better than when I first got the oil. The first hour is still challenging for me but then the sunshine comes out and it is beautiful.
    Borneo 50K is the opposite for me. The first hour is great but then the wer cardboard note ruins it for me.
    I would take Kencana v3 over 50K especially considering the price is a little more than half of 50K.

    EO - Oud Sultani 1990. Lovely smell, just not the best performer on me. May be because I rub it in / spread it about though (it's so viscous!)

    Now Dukhan by @Habz786
    Yes, this is smokey - but seems perfectly so. Has a great balance and isn't too overwhelming. From the bottle it didn't seem very smokey but now, on skin - yes! It kind of has an old vibe, similar to some vintage fragrances.Perhaps some oakmoss type of feel. good stuff :D
