Amber Ash-Sheikh is a pure vegetal amber prepared with different varieties of plants, flowers, rare asian herbs and a beautiful saffron for a deep and complex scent.

Wow, and oh my God is what I gotta say about this one! First, the oil in this attar is the thickest viscosity wise that I've ever seen. The viscosity is extremely heavy, and it strongly resembles the consistency of Karo corn syrup, in fact probably even more thick than that. It is so thick that it's almost sticky in nature, almost like a Labdanum Absolute which is almost a solid at room temperature, and also the color is virtually black. When you apply the oil to the skin even in the tiniest amount, you really have to work it in because it almost instantly congeals to the skin which means furthermore that the lasting power on this stuff is insane, days.

Now, I've experienced quite a bit in my time nose wise from the most beautiful to the most rank and this stuff right here, Amber Ash-Sheikh, is a true work of art. I'm completely blown away by this perfume house and especially of every single sample that I've tried which is almost everything (by the way, there is not one single attar from this house that I dislike, I like all of them, kinda shocked actually), this one takes the cake.

This smells EXACTLY, and I'm not exaggerating one iota, like freshly layed out and steam rolled, hot asphalt and road tar with all of the steam still rising from the asphalt itself, it is absolutely incredible, almost gag inducing it's so strong and overpowering. This perfume would have to be the manliest of the manly scents on this planet. This is continually sold out and apparently I had gotten lucky and was sent a sample for free because when I had placed my order, this was out of stock, but just a day later it was back in stock before my packaged had shipped so lucky me (thank you AKF!). I'll tell you that the sample I have will last for a really long time because you seriously only need a micro dot of Amber Ash-Sheikh. The name fits this attar perfectly too. It's 'ashy' and unabashedly smoky and smells exactly like fresh road tar. I can't even pick anything out of this the smell is so dense, heavy and compact until way into the far drydown, like 12+ hours where it's this stunning and black Oud accord. You really need to experience this attar, definitely a one-of-a-kind that's teetering on being unwearable. A sheer work of art.

I'm just beside myself with the quality of these perfumes. They're truly amazing and smell really, super nice. I'm highly recommending this perfume house!

Edit: So, after this had been on my skin for a good 6 hours, I had to shower for work which means that obviously I washed it off, well, all through the evening at work, I kept catching these amazing wafts of the drydown of Oud when it's in that pristine, deep woody scent that we're all continually chasing and good Lord did it smell amazing, all night! My point being is that this perfume is beyond handsome smelling well after the far drydown, it's just a pity that it takes so annoyingly long to get there, and if unwashed, this heavenly thick, tarry black aroma will last for days on your skin, the longest lasting attar that I've ever experienced. I wish that I could give this perfume an award because it's really a work of art, just amazing, you have no idea. This 'smell' is incredibly fascinating and is the blackest of the black. I will sign my truck title over to you as a 100% guarantee that you've 'never' smelled anything like this, ever! It is a giant wall of textured black 'thickness' that consumes your mucous membranes and sucks the air right out of you, but the totally awesome part is that you keep shoving your sniffer back in for more to try and decipher this mystery that's a black abyss. It makes Normal Kamalis's Incense look like H²O. I'm literally blown away by the complete overwhelming power Amber Ash-Sheikh has. What I'm trying to figure out is where did this perfumer find these materials, what are they and how is it that they are so freakin' strong?! I'm in love with this perfume and want to smell like this bad ass smell forever. Honest to God above, this entire line of perfumes is a masterpiece. Abdul Karim al Faransi is a genius. Every single perfume I've tried is amazing! As a reminder also, the power of this scent is astronomical, you have no clue. This is not in any way an 'apply a few drops here and there' kinda scent, no way. You seriously need to be really, super discreet with the application as Amber Ash-Sheikh is a beast on steroids for endless hours, it'll definitely beat up your senses if you're not careful. The key to this scent is in the application. I'm talking about a mini micro pin dot, only 1 little itty bitty drop rubbed directly just below your sternum, just above the small of your stomach in that little concave. After a while when your body warms the oil, it's overly strong sillage will scent your entire self just enough. Trust me please in the application, or you're going to reek in a bad way...

Comment is on the "new batch" (as described on the official site) - Very intense amber - Strong projection and lasting power - Evokes feelings of comfort and wellness - A very solid smell yet also elegant - Beautiful - Recommended

This has a spicy ambery opening that settles down into an incense type fragrance (Norma Kamaliesque incense) in 4-5 hrs. Has tremendous staying power (over 24 hrs). Go easy on the applicator and you will be rewarded with olfactory bliss for a long time!

Beautiful scent just like many others that I tried last week. I am not good at describing a fragrance. I will just quote Pacino in 'Frankie and Johnny': "Heart knows something that reason does not understand". These oils invoke new feelings, maybe completely forgotten. I had a journey in time to my childhood.

This has a very strong projection - even on my skin. The smell is the opposite to the typical sweeter perfumes I tend to go for. This is very heavy and strong and somewhat difficult to describe beyond what the maker of it has already stated. The dry down as someone else described, is very pleasant, more so than the smell of the original application itself, but I have a feeling this perfume is either love or hate. I do recommend this.

This is one incredibly powerful fragrance! One small dot of the liquid - actually semi-liquid - will last at least a day. I put a small amount on a strip of paper and the scent is still there
after a week. Not sweet in the slightest, the scent has a somewhat bitter and medicinal character and is probably the best amber fragrance I have ever encountered. I must say that this scent would not suit everyone; in my opinion one would have to be a pretty imposing person in order not to be overwhelmed by this amber.

Very nice amber fragrance.But quite dark and strongly ambery which is for european noses a little too heavy,at least for casual wear.Longlasting spicy,ambery attar.
For a much more wearable alternative choose Amber Afghani..

I love this perfume, it is powerful and intense, an earthy amber, raw and dirty, hallucinatingly beautiful.

I just bought version 2018, and I'm sorry to tell you that it's more floral, much more fecal and animalistic, and softer and more ethereal, the wings of this masterpiece have been cut off. In the background you feel the soul of "Amber Ash-Sheikh" but very reduced in power, a pity, because, something that is well done, should not be touched.
Harper - Los Angeles
this (new batch 2018) is holy-grail material: it is strong, dark, honeyed leather labdanum, spices and musk, with a subtle and VERY good oud-note joining in the drydown and weaving in and out of the ambery goodness. lasts a long time and is truly swoon-worthy -- as good today on your skin as it will be the next day on your clothes. in fact, i just got my bottle and am about to buy a (larger) back up -- i never want to be without this. so if you like amber you *must* give this a try.

I would say this is so far my favorite fragrance from this house.
It smells like a luxurious perfume. Stays on skin for over 10 hours. Use very little dab as it can get very overbearing for some people.

Amber Ash-Sheikh is one of your houses deepest, most luscious oils I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. I love how thick this oil is and the fact that you created this note of Amber by using various vegetation, herbs etc to make the specific ' color ' or scent profile required in order to complete this
amazing beauteous oil .

A really deep and mysterious woody scent.
this perfume is just beyond handsome, especially in the dry down and it's just a pity that it takes so annoyingly long to get there.
This thick, tarry black and myterious aroma will last for days on your skin, this is the longest lasting attar that I've ever experienced except some pure agarwood artisnal oils which I've tried in the past.

If abyss had a smell it would defiantly be it.
A mysterious and endless black thickness of untouchable aroma.
I can't help but try to decipher this mystery that it is.

I'm literally blown away by the overwhelming power of Amber Ash-Sheikh.
Another masterpiece by dear Abdul Karim al Faransi after his best creation "Sheikh al faransi", period.
You seriously need to be really discreet with the application beacuse when your body warms the oil, it's overly strong sillage will scent your entire self just enough.
Love it, definitely ordering a full tola bottle.

Out of the world , I love oud abd Amber basedfragrances and in my honest opinion i have not smelled anything near to this in my life - surorising thing is that this is pure plant based but easily beats any Ambergris based expensive creations of established houses in my dictionary this is Nuclear grade stuff very deep very complex with monster performance: i wish Nr. Anthony thinks of making spray form as well
