    Not at all. In fact, I don't have it:D. So, I showed my sorrow.

    I love the vials you have.

    You will love the final result. The colour would turn black within minutes. Black Beauty. I am ecstatic to visualize the images of the maceration you have.

    Yes,turned completely black and sludge like as expected after 4 drops of TW95 and 7 drops santal midy.Somewhat melted so i added more ambergris and musk.Dont normally use heat but had to sit this in a hot bath,I will take a pic when i make it home a little later

    The v-vial looked like the ones I gave you on the sandalwood split last year. No biggie.

    Ok so I wish to try my first official blend. I have the following ingredients:

    Siberian Musk grains
    White Ambergris
    Musk Attar (from Rising Phoenix)
    Ambergris in Mysore Sandal
    Ambergris tinctures
    Taif rose
    Indian Rose
    Saffron tincture
    Motia Attar
    A Whole bunch of ouds - mainly Ajmal higher-end ones which I think are suitable for blending Cambodi no.1; Hindi Khaas al Khaas

    Any idea what I can do with this bunch?

    I was thinking of combining the musk and ambergris in equal proportions 0.5g/0.5g
    Then settling that into Sandalwood Mysore (3ml)
    Mixing the ouds and adding a mix of Taif/Indian rose and saffron tincture 80 oud : 20 rose-saffron mix
    Let those two sit independently for a couple months, then add them together. Would that be too much sandalwood in the final blend?

    Hi, can mukhallats be made with oud and other ingredients by co-distilling them together or are mukhallats made only by cold blending them? What about hydro diffusion in oud oil? Can mukhallats be made entirely without oud eo? Please help:Thumbsdown::Thumbsdown::Thumbsdown:

    Mukhallat simply means a blend, and it is a mixture of fragrant oils 'cold' as you put it, though heat can be used for better/easier mixing.

    Attar is when raw materials are codistilled to make a scent.

    Oudh is not a necessary component in either, but it is usually used for the richness and depth in brings to the composition.

    Thank you @ Al Shareef Oudh. Couldn't have thought of such precise and succulent explanation:praying::praying::praying:.
    So, if a person were to hydro distill any eo and diffuse it in oud eo by letting it get collected in the collection funnel where oud oil has already been placed, would it be a mukhallat or attar?
    Am a newbie, so please bear with me for asking questions too obvious to other distillers.

    I think if you made that you would want to be sure people knew what you meant. Since this is a unique method, why rely on a term used for other products? If you simply say it is a mukhallat, people will assume it’s a cold mix. If you call in a “traditional attar” people might assume it is is distilled into a receiver charged with sandalwood. Maybe you should just describe something like this - call it an oud-based hydrodistilled attar I guess?

    Call it an “oud-tar” or an “attaroud”!
