Chinese oud
In collaboration with Russian Adam and an oud collector from China I present to you an extraordinary old and high quality wild Hainan hagarwood oil produced in 2003.
Fantastic composition with a citrus finish, quite volatile and short, just so that the oud does not go out of control. After drying a combination of exotic flowers, gardenias and jasmine that evolve towards a sandalwood smell, a not sweet sandalwood, a smell of wood tanned by time, pleasant and penetrating.
Very interesting olfactory experience of a high level as we are accustomed to this perfume house.

The silent and slow breeder - A rare oud species
The (only at first) silent and slow breeder. For "Chinese Oud" you need time. He's great, but he doesn't show you that right away. And maybe not the first time and then certainly not as a small test spot on the arm.

I'm certainly no oud-head but I've had my fair share of things under my trunk. I admit, I could do with the notes also nix and had my concerns. And then this hype before the sales launch. I don't like that much either. But here it is now first about the fragrance.
The top note wears its name rightly in this case. She bumps pretty much in front of the head. The oud is there, but considerably "denigrated" by the citrus, I want to say. And then something happens that I very rarely experience like this. "The discovery" (in the truest sense of the words) of the oud. It slowly works its way up. And it's the increasing strength of this note that makes you realise its content. It's one of those rare cases where the scent gets stronger as it goes on (even to a certain degree, of course - but still atypical). Never does it remain alone, but it becomes more and more clearly exposed. The rose remains until the end. However, falls silent according to its placement in the pyramid. Sandalwood and vanilla smooth the already not rabid oud, while patchouli counteracts this smoothing somewhat.

It is and remains a calmer and smoother oud, but about the fourth hour one recognizes the real quality and also strength of this extract.

The many souk appearances of "Chinese Oud" in recent weeks let me speculate that the expectations were disappointed, or the patience was not enough.

Even though it is one of the quieter ones in my collection, I feel very comfortable with it. Especially since there are simply not very many well-made, but especially natural oud fragrances. This one counts without a doubt among them.

PS: After 24 hours, especially in the clothes, a magnificent oud experience.

So, take your time!
