    NewbieOuddie Whats this Oud About?

    This forum is a bad influence on me...

    My Oud collection was this...

    IMG_1840.jpg

    After discovering this forum my collection now looks like this...

    IMG_1839.jpg

    I'm really looking forward to getting stuck in to these. They come with a a few freebies too - very small samples but a nice touch. There was a mix up, so my order came in two parts - double samples!

    I've started working through the samples. Does anyone else think these are a nightmare to get in to?? Requires so much force that the swipe pings up at you (or is it just me).

    I haven't the eloquence or vocabulary to review Oud properly yet, but here's what I've tried so far:

    Sultan Leather - not a fan, it's quite a metallic/chemicaly smell. Reminds of a cheap Attar that's been bought in a multi-pack.

    Oud Extraordinaire - reminds me a bit of Aroha Kyaku but much more tame, only lasted on my skin for a 2-3 hours.

    Laos Laosan - I really like this. Lasted easily half the day. Reminds me a bit of Creed Royal Oud. A really easy, mainstream wear.

    I full appreciate these are the Newby Oud musings, so I am very happy to be corrected/educated.

    Also - any recommendations on which order to work through my new collection?

    I was thinking start with start with Aroha Kush and ZaZa Zen, before moving on to Satori Fusho and TWR, and after having got used to them work up to Ertugrul.

    Beautiful!
    Is that basic kinam? I can't read the first part?

    Which oils aside from the one we spoke about?

    Yep it’s the Basic Kinam.

    I think I might be listing it in the market place soon to make space for more purchases.

    I have a couple of very special oils on the way which I’m very excited about.

    More Ky Nam for up coming sticks, it seems Covid19 has made the Japanese dealers more generous!
