    Reloaded........

    IO Pai Sia Kan

    I really love this oil, but it’s obvious that a lot of people don’t share my same preferences, otherwise, PSK would be sold out.

    Hey.... I voted for AOMeg last year and lost to an oil, that personally I feel is notches less in overall greatness. Yes, I tried last year’s winner.

    But that just goes to show, that beyond the grade of chips used, distiller, price point, region, genre, and blind testing.......
    we’re an Oud Community of Oud Lovers, of all tastes and preferences, and I bet you there’s a Gem for everybody out there...
    Peace, Love, and Brotherhood:praying:

    There is a medicinal bitterness that ensar seems to get in wood of any and all origins but the oil at the end of the day is clearly Borneo. Green cooling and vaporous.

    A super member let me try a vial of ASO Marjaan.
    This was a blind encounter because I have not heard or read about this oil, nor was I told what it was.

    At the sniff of the stick I assumed it to be a mukhallat with an oakmoss vibe, so I refrained from a swipe, but applied just a tiny dot with the tip of the stick.

    Later I was told that it is a Malaysian Oud.
    So I have on right now a swipe of Marjaan.

    Vetiver oakmoss-ish, oudy, incense. One hue...Black. It’s like Tigerwood 1995 meets Oud Royale no5, that is matured, with muted animalics, a touch of tobacco, and a shroud of camphor-morphed into-medicinal menthol-minus minty.

    To me....it has an Eastern Heirloom feeling.
    Plus a tiny bit of Oud Sultani 1990.

    At drydown it’s apparent that the wood used was at least a decent grade.

    Again, thank you for the sample;)

    Complex indeed!
    Bit I’m a little confused with the whole XYZ thing.
    Would this type of complexity be considered Horizontal?

    Beast oil. Huge drydown. Massive damp wet wood note. I see imagery of an old damp cabin in the woods. I don’t love the acetonish varnishy opening of it. But then again super young oil

    AA Pilipinas No 2 tonight
    This is amazing. It starts out smoky like I am burning a Filipino chip on 12 V on my subitism burner. It then develops into the smell you get in the air after the chip is done burning. I only have a tiny sample of this and this one is very expensive. Taha you are killing my bank account.

    If it is complexity, then it is weak and queer complexity.

    The point being, that you perceive typicity even when the Vendor himself is advertising the exact opposite.
    The subjectivity could not be more stark.

    SumbaWALLA (Rising Phoenix). This is about as dense a gyrinops oil that I've tried. Very satisfying. It has what I think of as the notes typical of that species, complemented by pine, frankincense, and sunshine. Personally, I don't get any smoke notes really (official description suggests smoke) and that is all for the better. Really glad I picked some up at Ye Olde Oude Fayre!
