From my first sampling-order I got several Dahn al Oudh perfumes to test for my upcoming business.
As I knew oud just as an ingridient of perfumes made in the west, and I fell in love with it, I was very excited to get my nose finally on the purest form of oudh!
And what to say, my expectations really were disappointed. I just could not believe it! The smell of the pure oud can at any rate cause a choke impulse :-SSSSSS
All I could smell was kinda horse stable, a fecal, eathy scent...A friend of mine who I asked to smell it, told me she feels like smelling a puma's anus lol!
What I really don't understand, that the oud is so precious and high in price. You can pay many hundreds of dollars for a 3ml oil perfume of pure oud! And ever it is older, the price is higher and the smell is stronger!
And here they come:
|Swiss Arabian - Dahn al Oud Shurouq|
|Ajmal - Dahn al Oudh al Shams|
|Ajmal - Dahn al Oudh Lujain|
|Swiss Arabian - Al Salaam Dahn al Oud|
The next one I must admit that by time it display in a precious, but still a very, very strong scent:
|Swiss Arabian - Dahn al Oud Kambodi|
And the last one is much nicer to smell less the fecal note, but still very earthy! Probably because it is a "Mukhallat" what means a mix! I must admit I like it much:
|Ajmal - Mukhallat Dahn al Oudh Moattaq|
By the way, do someone know what means "Moattaq"???
What is your expirience with Dehn al Oudh? What do you think about the smell?
