Hahaha, I will be honest with you. I didn't even look at his username until you mentioned. That's the kind of attention they deserve.lol today’s been busy... had to ban two people today for fraud and this other guy... I think the only thing appropriate about him was his username. Sublunacy.
I haven't, but heard R.Adam answering someone on IG that tincturing (only) sandalwood will capture a relatively faint aroma. My guess it will be same or even less (if there is other materials in it).I have some vintage Mysore incense from the 70’s and to my knowledge (it was gifted to me) it’s legit. It smells legit as well when burned. What I’m wondering is wether or not it’s okay to take the incense and tincture it if I scrape all the powder off the sticks and soak it in alcohol for a week? Has anyone done this before and are the results desirable?
The sandalwood burns a little too hot on the stick and ends up with a heavy charred wood smell half way through the burn so I’d rather tincture it and see how it holds up in a perfume.
I don't know if it is by MLR. But looks like it. If you haven't, send an email to MLR or contact Pranjal Kapoor via IG (kapoor.pranjal). He can give you an authoritative answer. As for the reliability, it depends if the source is reliable and if you trust them.Hey all you fine folks.
What is it exactly that I have on my hands here? Can anyone help with dating this bottle? I'm guessing (always dangerous) this is an older M.L. Ramnarain distillation, but I honestly don't know. Could be DPG and chemicals, but based on what I've sniffed, I don't think so. Seems to be the real deal.
What I do know:
- At least 20 years old (claimed)
- Still smells great (confirmed)
Can y'all help ID this bad boy?
Thanks in advance for any help. I figured if any community might know, it would be this one.

That red top-cover is interesting. I have seen similar things being used in other older Mysore sandal bottles - including official Karnataka ones.
Thanks very much to both of you. I will reach out to Pranjal this morning and wait to hear back.Mr Pranjal is always available to answer any query. WhatsApp him, and all will be clear. He instantly answers when it is some matter about the house.
