Ive always wanted a blend which is raw yet beautiful, Saqr by ASO is a blend which defined this for me. I am yet to smell something of the same beauty. I wanted to create something raw, loud, powerful yet beautiful. Dry Siberian musk grains from 2012 were cleaned, cleaned again and again and crushed and grinded into fine powder. They were then macerated into Sri Lankan sandalwood oil. The second phase was choosing which Ouds would work well, i decided Chinese and Hindi Oud was the answer. Wild Hainan oil distilled in 2015 was blended with Wild oil from Assam distilled in 2013 and left to settle for a while. Then the blend came together and has been sitting for 6 months in a dark cabinet. Al Harara translates to heat, this blend when i sniffed it brought about a feeling of the rawness i wanted along with alot of warmth. On a cold night this will surely warm you up, a very potent long lasting blend indeed. Notes of woody spice, ginger, cinamon, herbs, pepper, bitter grapefruit, antiqiue furniture and alot more. The dry down is where the Chinese Oud settles in with a lovely drydown that lasts forever.... Al Harara will be sold in 2.5g bottles with a limited supply. This is more of a exclusive limited blend which im sure Oud, sandal and spice lovers will enjoy. Each bottle is 175$ shipped worldwide a very fair price considering the high quality materials used and merged together. Drop me a PM for your bottle for Ouddict members only.
