    Revisited my Al Ghaliyah #2

    It’s mainly RBO Bangladesh oud, rose, civet, and musk. The other ingredients just support the overall effect,,,,which is like lounging on a leather armchair, with a swipe of oud on the wrist, an unlit cigar in one hand, and a cup of herbal tea in the other.

    Love that RBO vetiver! Applied a swipe to my beard today and it was just fresh and pleasant scents wafting up all day.

    This evening I have a dab of EjB’s sour tangie cannabis essential oil. It’s quite a fragrance - very rugged and herbal, hits the nose a bit like lavender (but smells entirely different of course)! I love the deep green mossy heart of this oil that predominates after the initial herbaceous frankincense notes pass. Some might recognize that this came from cannabis in a blind sniff but I’m not sure most people would.

    And a little patchouli. Talk about one incredible fragrance material. A good patchouli is like the ultimate blend enhancer. It blends well with so many other materials and adds truly compelling notes when diluted to the point of being almost subliminal, as well as when more dominant. I think in this way it is a kind of “exalting fixative” like musk. It kind of ties diverse fragrances together while creating little olfactory hooks that are hard to ignore. Love patchouli.

    Ame Sombre (SPA): my take

    For those who don't know, there was a historical lecture titled "A History of Perfumery from Antiquity to Today," where Irisoir (2017) was chosen as a neo-classical example, showcasing one of the many directions of current modern perfumery! It was held on 13th February at Swedish National Museum with the assistance of Osmothèque. :Thumbsup::clapping:

    I am anxiously waiting for vintage Patchouli. And I have noted your words about mixing both Musk and Patchouli.

    The day the oil arrived, I will request for your suggestion to which oils or musk maceration oils it is to be blended.

    I wasn’t saying to mix it with musk. Just that, like musk, it does surprising things to blends.

    I have some very old and excellent patchouli including bottles I have been aging since 1996 or so. It is interesting how different patchouli oils change over time. Some become very thick - almost too thick to pour and the threads of the bottle get very sticky. Others stay quite pourable and mobile. I wonder why? Impurities? Hydro vs. steam? Copper vs. steel? Terroir? Different chemotypes?

    Few today,
    Montreal Attar by Royal Bengal Ouds - this is a "sneak peek" version so not sure how close to the actual release it is. Started off very rosey, I thought there wasn't much to it but it progresses to possessing a subtle animalic backnose with a lot of woods and a feeling of outdoors - perhaps in a forest. Very good stuff.

    Also had on Imperial Oud's Mysuru Ambur which is simply ambergris/mysore sandalwood. I love this stuff, it's very animalic and dark. Lasts a good 7+ hours and is linear but calming.

    Later on I found a lid to Tyson's Vajood Ambergris - think that's what it's called anyway. I'd lost its lid ages ago and had sealed with cellophane and when I took it off I realised how much had spread across the top. So I swiped it all across my arm. It's very different to IO's offering - a much lighter, diffusive smell. It's much more of that "baby's breath" smell that ambergris is known for. Not too strong but proves for an extremely pleasant smell.

    Day and night comparing Tyson's and IO's ambergris/mysore combos :)
    They are very differently coloured too

    SOTD: An unnamed little concoction made by Arifoglu spice shop in Istanbul a few years ago.A cheap but pleasant attar similar to traditional middle eastern oils like Hajar al aswad and Ajmals Black musk.It's well blended, smells great and has good projection, what more can you ask for!

    Baikal Gris (ALD): pine, green, slightly chalky and powdery, dry & slightly sharp violet, milky/slightly sweetened tonka - cold air brining all the aromas from the distant land on a magical carpet of sandalwood that is generously sprinkled with ambergris. One of the most unique perfumes I have ever smelt.

    201 Sajaro Imperial (Saffron, Jasmine & Rose Attar by Mellifluence)-Not a big fan of floral dominant perfumes and I thought this would be no different based on the sparkling rose,jasmine and champaca opening.But give this a few minutes and the heady floral notes will taper down to a wonderful creamy, spicy wood aroma as the sandalwood and Hainan oud start to reveal themselves.Very beautiful, definitely need to spend more time with it especially in the warmer months.

    Ejayb Tangie ceo layered with rose otto and neroli essential oil. The Tangie dominates (75% of blend) , the rose and neroli (25% together) round and frame its scent nicely. Can’t stop sniffing!
