Al Hashimi Trad review is coming soon. I already wrote it 2 days ago. I just need to correct the text. But guys, I wanted to share that I just sorta tried Al Hashimi Lindaraja oud (from Papua). I’m going out tomorrow for a bit to deal with a few things and I have thought I will test oud on other people around me. I read a lot about Papuan oud oils to have jungle aspects, being green, resinous and in general the way I like.... as my nickname might suggest. So, I’ve thought to myself I will prepare a little dilution equal of one swipe to apply it tomorrow. But when I was doing it, I was blown away! This is magnificent! And so much different from all the ouds I’ve tried so far and again mind-blowing like Tariq.. It just made me stunned, and shrives went down my spine. And I smelled it only for like 2 minutes. Oh dear! I will try to write about it soon too. I’m in shock. And I’m not even sure if I will use it tomorrow now, because I might be wandering around this oud in my mind instead of focusing on what’s going on around me. XD My first quick impression would be citrusy, resinous, green like needless of some conifer tree, camphoreous (never smelled camphor but from the descriptions I would associate it), zesty, clean, having some sharp edges... simply beautiful. And also very intense! Perhpaps there is some earth, roots, and mosses beneath that. I might be in oud love again. I hope I'm not messing up anything, because there was some vetiver scent in my room. Again such a surprise... I'm very happy and at the same time sad that I decided to open it for use before doing long oud studding session with ambient music. Yeah, I definitely won’t be wearing it tomorrow. It deserves better 1st journey in the comfort of my room.
