    Was wondering about that Mandalay! How is it? Have you ever smelled AA RCX or Bhamo as compared?

    I tried Mandalay and RCX, and they’re not similar.
    RCX tries to zoom in on the kinamic arena, and Mandalay boasts very many facets, like a joy ride.

    Thanks for that OAL! Would you mind giving a little more of details on the Mandalay? Does it have the samee bitter citrus vibe ?

    The distinct similarities between AA
    Shwe Myitkyina, RCX, and IO k K shew were profound and i was just wondering if Mandalay fell into this same camp of.was more assamese in style and pitch?

    Mandalay is certainly not of the same camp as RCX and Aarai Ko Shway. Burma Citron leans toward that camp but by 25% only if I recall correctly.
    My first try of Mandalay was a blind sample. I had a feeling that it was either a Cambodi, Burmese, Hindi, or Chinese. Quite an oil with so many facets, I wonder how it has aged.

    I ordered some musk from Ulugbek last December 14, and now, over 3 months later I received it.
    Hip Hip Hooray:clapping::clapping::clapping:

    Okay....don’t be so hard on the guy, it’s not his fault, the first musk sent got lost in the mail, my buddy ordered some during the same time and received his in around two weeks, so I know it was sent.
    So I allowed a few more weeks before I brought it up to Ulugbek. He gave me the option for a refund or resend, and since I got it on sale at $50/g, it was a no brainer to request a resend.
    It is regrettable that he had to take a loss, but he never voiced any discontent, what a guy!!!

    I am so patiently waiting my next LMK order!
    Sumatera gelang
    so special so amazing so next level . I received a free sample and ordered the 1.5 offered immediately! I didn’t even want to talk or bring up this oil on here until I had secured my bottle. This may be if not the most, close to the most prized oil I now own.
    If ya don’t know about this gem maybe you should!
    Thanks LMK for loving the oud!

    This punkish kid became a gentleman.

    The opening wich was a mix like almond oil and bitter lemon candy has become a slightly citrussy jasmine note (without the indole more like auriculatum co2). Then it tends toward oud wood smell with a slightly tiny Hindi sweet hay foreback.
