goes well with morning tea, great longevity too....
My evening was very enjoyable, partly because of wearing Rose de Malaise. It is a wonder how oud oils have cultivated my taste after trying different ones for months. This one is much much more enjoyable to me now than a month ago. Similarly I am finding Fragrant Harbor extremely beautiful now whereas a month ago I felt nothing smelling it. I thought that chinese oils were not for me but here I am loving it. One day I wore it to bed, woke up smelling the oil (which has a gorgeous drydown) still on my skin and craved the scent ever since.
Will definitely try more oils from LMK and IO in the future.
So far I have to say that I don't have a favorite house among those I tried as I enjoy what each has to offer (although I don't enjoy all the oils ).
yeah yeah, we know it's Mellifluence
Haha you got me!
Keo on the left Dao on the right
Leaning towards the right tonight
Today was Noir Velours by LMK. Very nice Hindi but to me, not much barn. Have I become super adjusted?!
Now, 2 oils by Royal Bengal Ouds - Sumataran and Bandarban, I love both of these! I have these on my hands and there is plenty of room on my arms for swipes of some more oud
Day LMK mandalay signature
night Habzoud wahah
Sniffing the stick from a sample of ASO Marjaan made me crave a heavy hitting Malaysian oil.
So I swiped some EO Tigerwood Royale.
I can't even remember what I just swiped on my left hand (!! - no less than 5mins ago) but on my right is Royal Bengal Oud's "Smokey Wild Sri Lankan" which I kinda dislike, yet it has that "keep smelling the nasty smell" quality to it....
I dunno, it's overly smokey like Feel Oud's Si Lana.
That burnt plastic vibe is all I can smell
IO Nagaland Imperiale
So far it’s holding steady.....not much change
.......still popping good
First screening: encens royale with a dot of Oud Ahmad and a smaller dot of kannan koh. Words don’t fit. Jaws drop. Malay beast. Next time I am gonna try a dot or three of aso malek malayzi. Is an oil cut from similar cloth
Second screening: muana mash up.
%50 by volume nirvata. zero barn and quite sweet. Strong muana note)
20% royal Bhutan: brighter. Drier. Much drier. Barny.
20% muana royale: no barn. Nirvata but drier more elevated more focused higher pitched.
10% Bhutan red. Beast oil. Mature. Old. 9 years old. Mineral. Barny but complex and fascinating. But lacks comfort and that sweetness and inncobe t free muana note. Muana here is transformed to dark side.
Mashup result: god digggy deee damn. Yowza. Delicious. My anticipation percentage match up happens to be on point tonight. I am frankly humbly happy with the results and will repeat this
For me I noticed it pick up more sweetness and those guava and other tropical fruit notes have gained more ripeness and decadence ness
xll today. i couldnt stand the opening before and now after many months and small amount of oil seeing tons of air in vial, i can tolerate the opening but not loving it. after 20 minutes though... my o my. darkest of the creme de violette notes meet other dark floral scents and exotic Chinese herbal medicinal notes. terrific evolution and the notes as one approaches dry down are simply fantastic.
the other night i wore oud royale sri lanka and it was amazing how i realized the very same core note in al hashimi adan is in this oil as well. it was a jolt to my system moment as i LOVE this note and to date i knew i love ORSL more than other walla oils, but didnt know how or why and now i do!
both adan and ORSL have sooooo much stuffing that i feel like if i was a betting man, both oils will be terrific agers. at the moment aside from 3-4 wears a year, both oils are too powerful and massive for me. they are like little kids throwing tantrums. too much to deal with. but do they ever have the most glroious of drydowns and loooong lasting power. hope my decision to keep 3/4 of the vial for 5, 10 plus years prove to be the right choice.
