What happens after 15 mins?
Lol... Not like anything dramatic happens but i'm just not a big fan of its notes after the initial opening.
Thank you Sir. Very humbling when our art is appreciated in this heartfelt manner. All three Qandahaar oils are mind benders.
Al Malek Al Hindi II is an oil on a different level, on a different plane, the near decade of ageing has taken the complexity on a different dimension and as you mention Ugly - Delicious , a Hindi that is symphony in harmony. How did you find the silage/lasting ?
Kaliman Kala. Nice beautiful classic Borneo opening. Drydown is like sweet, slightly spicy mold. Lol
Agarwood Assam's Meitei. An amazing Hindi no doubt
Oud Bangladeshi Hindi: A mystery from the very first moment till the last. It is like spending a night in mysteriously dark Marabar Caves during full moon.
How enormously distinctive traits a Hindi oil does possess!
Haven’t had the luck to try the other two but I am so glad I managed to experience Qandahaar III!
The longevity for Al Malek Al Hindi is insane. Easily over 15 hours. The dry down remain intact and rich after an extended period of time - which I find amazing, as most oils tend to lose its clarity after that amount of time.
Silage wise - it’s on and off, almost like a phantom. But I suppose it could be because of olfactory fatigue given it is quite powerful!

And i thought @RisingPhoenix Gangaridai 2015 was the only Bangladeshi Hindi. Identity crisis ouds.
Bandarban by Royal Bengal Ouds
Don't forget Kalanam Islay! (I think @Rai Munir has tried this one, as well)
EO Borneo 2000
I’m realizing just how much this oil has in common with Kaliman Kala.
Gentle oil with minimal impact, but cute
In the background, Kinamic fumigation from Seijudo Shiragiku incense
I will confess that when I swipe People’s Ceylon, I wait for the top notes to disappear, so I can get to the part that I am enamored with. We seem to be at opposite poles in our preference with this oil
Very much, Adan smells a lot like the phillipine wood sample I got from you. It is bright and herbally on opening and as others have mentioned a creamy smell with waxy florals. Nice work with this one
Kali Minty by LMK really feeling the minty part tonight , green smoke and a sri lankan feel.
IO Kedah Thaqueel- from a sample.
A terrific oil that has actually gotten better over time in the small sample vial.
K. Islay is to be tried as well. I collected at least eight Bangladeshi oils from different vendors. I found K.I. more clean and smooth. It is just like Assam Organic that is organic, but replete with wild fragrance. I think KI is an organic, but aroma is worth-loving.
Aasifah-ASO this morning. Reminds me of Bandarban soaked of RBO. For me a bit to barney. It is the only oil out of 4 that dissapointed, but the quality is there, i guess i don't like my barn to be too upfront in oils.
Alshareef 4-ASO A very refined malay oud scent. Giving me relaxing vibes this afternoon.
Suriranka Senkoh on one side of the neck. Euphoria by Tyson on the other side. Loving the confusion my brain is going through.
@alcolado glacial ; Do try the Aasifah again. Initially, I wasn't sure about it but it's truly sublime.
I have to wonder if I tried too quickly after transit from Australia because it really seems to have settled and deepened in just a short time and all the nuances, (for days) have come out making it quite spectacular.
I also have Bandarban Hills, (the original soaked version) and to me, the two oils are not alike. Aasifah is so much more complicated and "layered". Bandarban Hills is a terrific oil, especially for the price as well but to me, apples and oranges and different levels of the art.
Oud Sumatran: I think Sumatran Oud is intrinsically dark spicy incense-y.
