Yesterday I got some samples from Al shareef oudh. Customs and other incidental charges charged by Indian customs are heavy. This was the first one - I tried because of Kynam oil in it. The initial waft I got on application was ultra refined hindi. No butch, ruggedness that hindis are famous for. Along with Hindi was a honeyed, medicinal vibe of a Chinese oil I love. The website mentions Indonesian, Vietnamese, Malaysian and Borneo too.. But I didn't get Indonesian. Probably its well mixed. The Vietnamese oil comes to play its role almost immediately and slowly everything becomes more pronounced with bitter sweet oudyness. This bittersweet vibe perhaps is kynam? I could relate a faintly similar vibe I found running throughout the duration of another fine oud oil Purple Kinam. I would highly appreciate inputs here from our experienced members. In later dry down the bittersweet aspect is reduced and the refined hindi oil with floral tones comes up. In the end I get sun dried hindi wood, faint musk & tobacco, ripe fruits with very little florals with that bittersweet kinamic vibe escorting all other scents. This overall is not an oil that projects massively but I did get noticed and a friend complimented on my woodsy perfume. It was fun figuring out different notes associated with this unique amalgam of oils with kynam.
