    Wa Alaikum Salaam.
    I might not be the most qualified here person to answer this question. But I think it might be just a different lighting causing the visuals of the color. I have here some EO Green Papua, and its color is looking different under different light. Deep dark red under more yellow artificial light, and dark almost blackish green under more natural or white light.

    I experienced Berkilau direct from Taha.
    The bottom picture looks more like it.
    You have to consider the exposure of the pictures.
    Although both pictures used flash photography, one is in a well lit room with a white background, the other from a dimly lit room and a dark background.
    The next thing to consider is the source.
    I don’t know the source of the oil in the top picture, but the bottom picture is from Jasin in Alaska. He had two of these for sale on ebay, someone already purchased the one pictured here, only the full bottle is still available. I have bought several bottles from him before, and all were good and authentic. Taha knows him well, you should have seen the Malaysian Super kings that he got from Taha. They were off-da-hook.
    But ultimately, each case is unique, I will not make any claim or garuantee that your experience with Jasin will be a satisfactory. I just thought I’d share my 2 centavos:D

    The new Malaysian king is Agar Aura Malaya. . Berkilau is an awesome deep Malaysian oud oil though. The Berkilau I have looks like the oil in sturdy glasd vial photo.

    My Berkilau found a new home.
    That’s what I get for having an insatiable appetite for Japanese Incense:Cooler:

    As for color variance, my Port Moresby changed color from greenish to orangish, I blame more oxygen within the container. I saw Ayu change from blue to greenish blue, I blame the settling, as it was not an aged oil.

    But I would bet, that the oils in the two pictures are the same color, if viewed in person under the same lighting.:Whistling::Whistling:

    I own two version of Berkilau from Taha
    One was called Berkilau and the other one is Berkilau Hitam
    Berkilau Hitam was from the last pull of the same distillation
    From the photos I think the second photo looks closer to the colour of Original Berkilaus

    Some confusion has been prevailing over the color of this oil , and I have sought the help of the master himself who crafted this oil to throw some light on wherabouts of this oil .
    Here is the email copy of his response to my query regarding the oud oil "Berkilau " 20190325_170740.jpg
