What is your Oud Of The Day (O2TD)?
well now gulf being like hell so oud season are off ' date=' now everyone in us or europe can attack royalty oud [/quote']
Hey Mandeel! I love to wear my oud oils in the heat, they come alive even more! Of course one has to be conscientious about innocent bystanders and wear, say, Borneo oil if you're amidst a crowd, and save the Hindis for solitary times.
good morning jensz ' date=' here in gulf no worry about oud smell because every one like it but I'm talking about 50c degree weather if i wear oud will be choked [/quote']
Mandeel, You were not exaggerating when you said gulf is like hell now! For me hot is more like 35 C (95 F). Not the 50C (122F) you have. Maybe even I wouldn't wear a Hindi in such temperatures. Maybe.
Today I went with Adam's Borneo Fera. It's a nice change from the heavy Hindis and Malaysians that I favor, but it's also got more complexity than your typical Borneo.
Good day Mandeel. What I mean is, on me anyway, Borneo oils tend to be very straight forward, with mostly a rather light woody aroma and little development or nuance. They are also very light on me (sometimes hard to detect). For this reason I don't usually find them very interesting (even though I enjoy them). But Adam's Borneo Fera has more going on: yes, it has the clean wood, but it's a heavier, more resinous wood, plus a little dried fruit (not sweet) and it does become very oudy like a Malaysian, with even a hint of oily leather in the deep, deep drydown. So Borneo Fera is interesting, and I hope that explains why it's more complex than Borneos often are.what u mean about the borneo " more complexity"
Yeah, and no other shade in sight for that poor lizard. ): I'm glad those guys let him stay in the shade with them.
I am really not a fan of oud Yusuf. Much to floral. It is truly a feminine oud. For some reason I have gotten a sample of Yusuf, thrown in with every other order from Ensar. Luckily my wife loves it so she has a small stock pile of Yusuf samples.Oud yusuf was my first real oud purchase after reading some BN review about it (i think the person who write the review was on some serious drugs and the effect was from the drugs not from the oil)
somehow i get the first batch even purchase in October 2015 and was clearly stated on the site that i am getting second batch 2012 distillation i receive a bottle that says 2011. after checking around i found out that this was from the first batch.
well personally i don't like it at all (maybe my expectation was too high from reading the reviews about it) but pretty much i like much better any other of what i have try cultivated thai oud that is usually 1/3 of the price of yousuf .
