‘Jibaal- Towering Oudh'
"Greeting your olfactory senses with a cloudy waft of leather JIBAAL bedazzles you into thinking you have the most clean Nagaland laal(red) Oudh but before your thought is complete it moves swiftly onto a deep dark ripe fruit note which is synonymous to the heydays of...
Today is a special day.
After many weeks of careful deliberation on whether this rare gem which is a true treasure should be released, I humbly present to you AL MALEK AL MALAKI The Angelic King. An Oudh specimen of the highest grade AL MALEK AL MALAKI is a work of love, a life’s companion, the...
Has anyone tried/or bought oud from Hikayat Fragrances? (previously known as OudHub)
They are based in Malaysia and have connections with Taha (Agar Aura); he was the perfumer for a couple of their attars.
I'm actually interested in their oud oil Karas Utama.
2018 Chantha Chong
The second oud I’ve ever smelled.
Some time ago there was a national news story. At last, proof of Bigfoot had been found! Some huntsmen had come across a specimen, a carcass really. They hastily displaced some frozen peas and tater tots (ok, that part’s...

After all, time has to drift away, but the experiences stay forever! This year remained more than significant for me as it brought certain unknown spheres of fragrances to me. Beyond known ‘artisanal and traditional worlds’, there is fragrant life too, enchanting and enthralling.
This year, I...

Part 3 from our very own Biebs!
(Thanks John Biebel for the lovely read!)
PS - it’s tentative - but I’ve been in talks with a space about November 2021 out in LA for an event. More on that as we work...
Fun article to read - and pertinent to the stank we all know and love.
This was written 2 years ago by Olivier Schneider.
I just reread this as he reposted it on FB. Really resonated with me as I feel the same way about Oud and Incense as he does about Tea.
“Tea is, of course, a product : leaves that are processed to be brewed and consumed. If that’s the...
Fantastic series about harvesting various Chinese Medicine materials. Visually stimulating and tons of great info - hope you understand why some things are so rare or costly, not to mention the amount of work that goes into their production.
This is just the first episode. There are...
Second installment by John Biebel has hit the press over at Fragrantica.
Fun read from a higher viewpoint on the work ive been doing.
Beautiful beast, smoky oud, not due to the heated resin of Aroha Kayaku but by nature of the Sumbawan oud that's in this. It also has fruitiness coming from the other ouds of Cambodian and Thai origin that gives it a sweet and playful aspect to it amidst the dark and deep plumes of smoke. This...
Last week, I received a package having Assamese Hindi Oud and Sandal oils from Mr Umair (Tabeer).
Assamese Hindi Oud:
This very oil reminded me of precious and rare legend oils Hindustan 1 by AA and Shah Jahan by IO. The reason I could understand is only one: Non-soaked Agarwood distillation...
