Hi Mat, I can give you my personal preferences. Oud and deer musk. I use both on its own. But also love oud heavy and musk heavy attars. I also love florals too if done right, specially masculine floral compositions with oud and musk.
All based on my personal taste.

Ok, I understand.
Just natural, high quality materials.
No fruity synthetic, or cheap materials.

Is this your meaning?
Matthew
Not exactly. I meant the traditional meaning of Attar. Put materials in one pot. Use sandal as a base. Boil it. Done.
Like India did back in centuries ago, if not hundreds.
I don't expect it is possible in the modern day due to the rarity of ingredients and cost. It's just my wish. :Coffee:

I personally would like to see your take on an attar based around saffron and pandanus flower. Traditionally these materials are called Ruh Zafran and Ruh Kewda/Kewra in India, which essentially means soul of saffron and soul of Pandanus, respectively.
Attar like this could be a good gourmand, imo.

@mattmeleg @Taesik Yun. Something along this line has been done by Adam and Dmitry at Feel Oud for their Oud Champi and Lotus oud attar.
I know they used Chanpaca/pink lotus flowers in the pot and distilled Koh Chang oud on top of that. So baroque and ingenious.

Matt what’s an Attar that you really enjoy and is maybe inspiration for why you’re creating Attars?
Oh my goodness....

This is a very hard question actually. I have hundreds of formulas for perfumes and attars, and so many of them are special to me...
Special to me for many different reasons.

I should say,
I am excited to look at some of Sultan Pasha's work. His tester set should be coming the mail any day now.
I'll be sure to share my thoughts with you!

Take care
Matthew

Good choise mate. Have fun with it. If you want a slightly different style, check out Elixir's work.

I'm very late to the party.

An attar based on musk and aged cambodi oud - deep, dark, and complex - brutally strong in its opening but that lingers for hours and hours - twisting and turning... elusive notes filling the air. I dream of this attar.
