Here’s something to smile at...
A few BK orders that have gone out over the past few days.
Hi. Unless I missed the info somewhere, can you confirm which of the two Blue Lotus oils this includes, please?
• Nelumbo nucifera - Blue Lotus
• Nymphaea caerulea - often known as Blue Lotus, but actually Blue Lily (Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile)
I am unsure which species the Blue Lotus is. I only know who distilled it and when.
It would make the most sense for it to be Nymphaea caerulea
Blue Kyara... I’ve spent a few days to appreciate this beautiful work of art so I can give a good review. Here goes nothing.
Upon opening the cap this oud screams of kyara, you can tell that it really is a pure kyara distillation off the bat. I have other kyara oils such as ensar’s KLTD 2.0, fragrant harbour imperiale from IO, Laos 99 by Agarwood assam, and a few agar aura ouds with a great kyara profile as well (Khmer special K, hansei, and royal Lao) Blue kyara just straight up blows everything else out the window. Hands down. I find myself too often opening the cap of this oud just to intensely smell Blue Kyara. Truly a first by Rising Phoenix. Probably never to be done again honestly. He stated himself that this project took him years to put together and as time goes on making something even close to this will only be harder and more expensive.
Yeah, you’re an old old timer and remember those days. Some things don’t change unfortunately.
This one came in this morning
Looks like other perfumers are catching up on adding Blue Lotus to Oud
Haha - oh yeah? What are you seeing?
Crime and punishment EO
“No one thinks of using these ingredients”...
And he used the Blue Lotus after taking shots at JK for “covering up blemishes” of the kyara oil... LOL
Ensar used blue lotus years ago in Blue Kalbar
Idk man. This guy steady going to war with everyone. Can't be an enjoyable way to live. Donald trump ain't got nothing on him
The point is...”so what?”
His “only I do it” attitude on everything is a little overrated. Especially after taking jabs at me for making use of it
Blending with other ouds is one thing...adding to what is kinam/kyara oil..thats another...
Ya just gotta try it in order to understand
yeah but this is not an oud. I have no stake in either side, I just mean that the comparison that's being made is not comparable. Anyway, digressing from the topic here
