    Speaking of soaking in sandalwood, I am enjoying the RKSons oil as a daily wear sandalwood. Scent does last overnight, so a swipe in the evening has you awaken in a cloud of scent the next morning. The intensity is moderate,
    the oil smells pleasant from top to bottom... I can give my older vintage oils a little break for a while (im actually putting some oils I took out back into storage thanks to this). Man it is nice to be able to just slather myself in sandalwood so i can really experience it fully. Amit’s Sandalwood makes it possible again, at least for me!

    Have you tried wearing sandal early in the morning when going for a walk?

    That’s a great way to enjoy the aroma - the contrast with the fresh air kind of boosts the scent.

    Jardin de Borneo Gardenia by Sultan Pasha. Beautiful floral opening that will evolve to a nice Borneo oud. Probably leans a bit feminine, but I enjoy wearing this. Like a walk in the park.

    Neat Anuha Musk (Central Asian) grains (from Ulugbek) macerated in Mysore Sandal. A dab is enough. I found this Anuha musk the strongest one in Sandal oil. Heaviest, feral, untanned, but divine fragrant darkness is all that attracts me.

    Organic rose absolute heated on the subitism. Took a little chip of soapstone, polished it and drilled a small well into the top surface. I just placed the stone on the heating element and the heat is coming through perfectly (have to turn the voltage way down of course - I almost burned the oil the first time due to not really using my brain to its capacity)

    This year’s batch of Bulgarian rose absolute from Alteya is blowing my mind. This is the most true-to-fresh rose scent I have ever smelled, by a long shot. Absolutely stunning rose oil.


    I’ve smelled dozens of absolutes and ottos - I don’t know what is different but I am guessing the organic cultivation must result in more complexity in the secondary metabolites like essential oils of the plants. Or maybe it’s just unusually fresh. Or a good season... I did not know rose absolute could smell this nice.

    Turkish Rose (from Abdumominov): It was a new batch. So freshening and rose-y, life and energy are very good. Very sophisticated lemon peel touch is there.

    In fact, I wear sandal and rose a lot. So, I am always in search of the both. Happy to acquire this.

    My most recent blend: Ruh khas, deer musk maceration, Persian rose, ouds from Malaysia and Assam. Needs a few more florals and some resins. :D

    Congrats

    I have been trying for the last two years to use vetiver in musk, but all in vain. And ultimately threw out oils thrice.

    Sniffed and then swiped two different Musk, Santal and Oud Maceration oils. Fully mature and orchestrated now after a couple of years. Musk is everywhere in it.
    Just Kashmiri Musk, the Oscent is rough- wild fragrant tides with intense tidal pull.

    Turkish rose I bought from Pierre chauvet about 15 years ago. Old rose... is pretty stable actually. Rose oil changes a lot in the first year, then settles into something that is less fresh but kind of just stays the same, which is good.

    Turkish rose almost always reminds me of raspberries. I have smelled some small lot Turkish organic rose that was indistinguishable from good Bulgarian but all my “ordinary” Turkish rose oil, from a couple of different sources, has this subtle raspberry note mixed in there. Not sure what to think of it.
