The entrance!

Hung a banner from the window, bit obscured by the graffiti though (the entire area of Shoreditch is graffiti'd, but not in a vandalised type of way). It's pretty cool!

....And the event is underway! 3 pictures showing it from different perspectives, it started off quite busy! Too many people to tag :(

Day 2 - @Nadeem and Hahsimi's set up being photographed, Rahul brought a cameraman along

@Nadeem decanting some thick-ass oil. It was interesting to watch :)

Sultan Pasha popped by! Shiny Sproaty head

yes that is a parrot in the middle of London

20190304_104538.jpg

At Bloom Perfumery in Mayfair where @RisingPhoenix filmed a few videos with the owner. Tried this Secretions Magnifique (look it up!) scent which is apparently revolting but I really liked it! Had awesome food in Chinatown

and a walk back down!

20190305_170750.jpg


Met up with Sultan Pasha and Nadeem again

20190306_201319.jpg

also with 3 friends of mine (non ouddicts) and went out for food. Post-food, Sultan was swiping everyone with everything under the sun

20190306_214654.jpg 20190306_214649.jpg 20190306_214641.jpg 20190306_214631.jpg 20190306_214610.jpg 20190306_232156.jpg

Later in the week, JK and I met up with @Shabby and spent the day at his work in a frankincense shop and then wandering London. JK's acupuncture and Chinese Medicine training was being utilised to crack my back and neck all week, and Shabby and his work colleague received the same treatment!

All in all, a great week was had :D

Thanks @Sproaty these look great. The best bit about these get togethers is to be able to talk with someone in detail about Oud. people not looking for something sweet and generic, who appreciate the effort and take the time to understand just what it takes to get these oils produced. Be good to see you in NY
