    A month before the package arrived having four Hindi Assamese Oud oils. No big claims from his side, but he just made a deal and said: You will feel the difference. He was right as all four different oils emanate different shades and trails but nexus is the same Hindi.

    Oud Imani: A Hindi with mild warmth of cinnamon and extremely light sweetness of cardamom blanketed in oudy smoke. This is not the dry-down that generally leads to Agallocha mystery, but this scent-sous mystery made me feel its soothing presence all the time. I love this trait. No barn and no weird chocolate at all. It is all bubbling resin on the coal, NOT on an electric heater. Impressive!

    Oud Khudee: This is the oil that has dark cocoa beans, dark chocolate and leather notes. It is somewhat monotonous oil that lacks a fragrant rainbow effect. But no barn-y and fecal notes of any kind from top to dry-down. N doubt, a Hindi depth is there but because of its being monotone, the effect is not that lasting.

    Oud Nirvan (M197): Just a number was tagged there, but I tagged Nirvan after sniffing the bottle when arrived. Very freshening feel I experience whenever I sniff or swipe this oil. Soft scent of non-citrusy fruits coupled with the scents of various aromatic wood. I feel it is edible too. Summer, jungle, rain and earth! Agarwood being roasted at a distance is how I visualize this oil.

    Oud M196: Highly incense-y with a decent magnetic-field of fragrance! Simply what-an-oud-oil sort of scent! If I blend Oud Shuayb (1 gram), and Assam Organic (0.3 gram) and then mix a top class Viet Oud (0.3 grams), then I will be able to create this kind of fragrance.

    Well, Oud Imani, Oud 196 and Oud Nirvan impressed me. It was my second stride beyond the domain of artisanal world, and found the oils at par with legends, if not above.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Respected Taj Saheb advised me to keep the oils un-capped for a whole day after receiving them. He said this much time is to be given to oils to let them adjust their scent in new climate and weather.

    how is it, both in terms of quality and price, when compared to Ensar's or Zak's (agrwoodAssam) oud?
