    I wear this oil frequently and love it. I never understood why it didnt sell well. I agree it has similarities to KSK at a much better price. I actually prefer it over Kanzen.

    where as i prefer kanzen over kuzen. green vs red. cooling and soaring, vs. warming and settling. at the end of the day though humbly speaking the oil is priced right. maybe it could have been $100 or so more. but to my nose and for my aesthetic, it falls short of taha's best oils. for me vsk over ksk too. basically green over red is more my thing.

    Martabat (IO) newly released Brunei oil, and on the heater 70's Indonesian wood chip (Rising Phoenix).
    Hard to attach scent descriptions but the oil has an herbal-sweet aura that I'm really enjoying, and the wood is likewise uplifting. Nice combo!

    I've worn Kuzen and Kinam Rouge extensively, and formerly owned the latter. Kinam Rouge was among, if not my first Vietnamese oil experience. To be frank it was not until I began to try other Vietnamese offerings, by the prodding of a few enablers, that I began to differentiate possible Vietnamese profiles. Kinam Rouge IMO is something I'd relate more to Cambodian oils, whereas Kuzen is a Cambodian oil that leans way more toward the Vietnamese spectrum. I've stated to a few that as far as Vietnamese oils, Kuzen is more Kinam Rouge than Kinam Rouge. Both are red/rouge and IMO Kuzen has way more of the kinamic type notes seen in several other Vietnamese oils. As far as making an appraisal based on scent and performance of the two, that is highly subjective. However, IMO Kuzen is/was well priced; Kuzen could have been $100 or so more and Kinam Rouge should have been $600 or so less, which would have resulted in parity in price and with the edge in value based on scent and performance going to Kuzen.

    Fully agreed about kinam rouge showing cambodi notes and kuzen more Vietnam comment. No doubt. Also true that of all oils baring the name kinam from ensar, kinam rouge is least kinamic to a point that many times is not even recognizable. But and a big but, the many whispers of complexity in kinam rouge both vertically and horizontally is truly without a shred of a doubt in a league of its own in these red genre oils. At times there is even a Karbi anglong note in it. And tea. Traits that agalocha have. Best part of kinam rouge for me is its gentle giant quality. It is an iron fist in a velvet glove. Lots of power but plenty of suave smooth roundness. It is the sphere like shape rather than jagged pointy angles that win it and the aged qualities is what we pay for. If Taha hadn’t lost many of those oils of his, I am confident he woulda aged this one longer too and released later for a higher price. Anyways. Both beautiful oils and both carry the signature of the vendor behind it. If price wasn’t an option then kinam rouge wins. If qpr is considered then kuzen wins but with a slight edge not night and day.

    My humble sincere 2 cents.

    I should mention that I intend to sell one of my 0.6 vials of kinam rouge and the reason is I don’t crave this red profile and if and when I do my itch can be scratched by kuzen ksk and viet zephyr. Also my other 0.3 kinam rouge vial. That one I keep. So I guess I am mostly in agreement with you but not in it’s entirety. :)

    AA’s Hansai just before bed. This oil is straight ufff, ahhh, and ohhhh. A gen 3 Vietnamese oil catapults this oil way in front. Simply mind bending and a mind altering oil.

    For a lawyer, nothing is hard to describe, respected Jensz.:praying:

    Before coming to know your being a lawyer, I assumed, after seeing your pic, you must be GM of some multinational company. Strict and well disciplined. :bowing:

    I wore LMK EDV last night, opposite AA LEC.
    The EDV was aggressive with it’s sillage. But seriously, if brother Farid wants to “give away” oud at a steal price, it’s his prerogative :Roflmao::Roflmao::Roflmao:

    AA LEC= L’essentiel Cambodgien

    Swiped EO Khmer Xtreme this morning,
    either I’m buying into it’s description from the website, or I’m really picking-up on some wild Cambodi goodness. I’d like to think it’s the latter.

    Right now........another treat!
