Sweet Ripe Fruits
Woody - Aoud from Cambodia
Great oud blend
I have been wearing this oil for a good while now, and had some of my friends try it as well.
I love it , I definitely do... that said, I find it rather difficult to review. The fragrance is extremely multi-faceted, and not only that, it also can develop in a most unexpected manner, depending on the wearer's skin chemistry. People whom I asked described it as 'wood', 'resin', and 'incense' but at the same time as 'very sweet'. Good quality oud obviously takes the central place in this composition, as the name suggests, but after all, there is much more to this fragrance than just oud.
In terms of performance, it does have some sillage and can be sensed by those around you, but it is definitely not a room-filling type of fragrance. On my skin it last a good couple of hours, depending on the weather, and some two days on clothes.
But how do I perceive the scent?
The other day in August I was camping at the riverside, on a tiny scrap of meadow between a forest and the river bank. There had been a thunderstorm earlier that afternoon, everything was moist, and the evening was getting rather foggy. On top of that, campfire smoke was lingering all around the place. Now, imagine that smell - resinous smoke combined with lush greenness of late summer and vapours of wet soil.
That evening, I happened to be wearing Oud al Amir - and I could hardly tell the difference between the perfume and the surrounding smells of nature.
Thank you Abdul Karim for this wonderful creation!
A well balanced fragrance with a powerful sweet honey and caramel opening, after about 30-45 minutes (on my skin) it tones down en leaves a very subtle green and woody aroma. The Oudh is very restraint and plays a supporting role in this play.
Not the powerhouse from sniffing the bottle but rather an elegant composition.
Very well blended fragrance. Animalic and smoky in the opening. It becomes sweet, creamy and woody in the dry down. It's like eating marshmallows at a campfire. Average projection and longevità. Wonderful experience.
This really is a beautiful and unique fragrance. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the perfumes I have purchased from this house and hope to try many more in the future
Sublime, it definitely is!
This is what the dream man should smell like, in winter at least. I love this scent, something crazy!!!
The fruits are subtile and not cloying, balancing the burnt wood perfectly.
This is a masterpiece!
Can be worn by a woman but somehow even if I'm tempted to buy it for myself, I'd feel like a fraud; unworthy of it not masculine enough. I will make my husband wear it instead. I cannot recommend this enough but you need to wear this with confidence.
100% love it!!!!
Actually smelling it as I'm writing, I will wear it as well! Can't be without "mystery in a bottle". 😍
I really pleased with this Oud. Really sweet and balsamic..I recomend this for all the oud lovers
Best Oud fragrance I have owned so far. Thanks for this beautiful surprise AKAF!
Best Oud attar I have known, I also loved the Oud Cambodi which is not there now, love the deep strong woody smell feels good the whole day.
Speechless, rich, creamy, honey
superb blend akaf thanks !
The beginning is very animal and dirty, but after this beginning, we can see a sweet and caramelized wood, which is beautiful. A powerful and long-lasting aroma, not suitable for cowards.
When I opened the pouch of attar it was totally leaked in the pouch but when I sniffed it was really I feel I am presently standing in the dargah. Something nice!!!
This is the finest blend of Attar I v come across in recent times, the sweet Notes, The burning Incense notes, The Agar oud notes, this tiny bottle is filled with some magic, the AKAF magic.
The First time I sniffed it I thought< i ordered something wrong as I was expecting it to be typical Agar oud Blend.
But after spending some time with this amazing Attar, I am loving it.
The thickness of oil is amazing, the projection the longevity is awesome.
Thanks for introducing this attar to me.
Thick delicious yummy Oud chocolate caramel. Its an Oriental scent dessert. Great performance. Exceptional pricing. Collector's bottle. Al Faransi has been a revelation.
This is the honey-caramel sweetened version of the Cambodian Oud. This gives me comfort when I wear it. One of my favorites.
Very beautiful smell longlasting I love it
To me an easy-going and good quality product - Thickness like honey - Soft in projection on my very absorbent skin - Sweetness gives it an approachable and more easy-going nature - Smells of quality - Yet at a very very good price that one can buy "lots and lots" as gifts
This is a very woody fragrance blended beautifully with the sweet notes, the top players here are the cambodian agarwood (not skanky at all), woody notes, honey and a complexity of dried fruits, the honey and the dried fruits give balance too smooth out the agarwood giving it complexity and sweetness without being overpowered.
The scent itself is smooth but strong, sweet but not gourmand and a bit dry, I can sense some kind of smokiness hidden in the background, very long lasting at least 10+ hours on my skin, strong presence but very smooth. Amazing attar.
