Dehn al Oudh White by Abdul Samad al Qurashi

Salam alaikum and good evening after a long time!

I will begin like this: If I would have to chose just one perfume house on Earth to be left among all which exist undoubtably it would be Abdul Samad al Qurashi!

So today I will try to present you an extraordinery oudh perfume from Al Qurashi: Dehn al Oudh White.
Does the name make you curious? Me for sure it made absolutely curious because I knew several Dehn al Oudh fragrances and tried many of them and each and every one was just shocking me (you can read here). So the word WHITE in combination with Dehn al Oudh and the color (I know sounds maybe easy or naive to judge by the color, but due to my experience the brighter colors are often the lighter and nicer scents in my nose) of the oil let me expect something different. So I ordered a sample and can say: yes I was right and even more I made a great discovery: an authentic soft oudh fragrance uncomparable to any other.

To start describing the scent I can say it is really white (if you also can imagine scents in colors). White like creamy, white like pure, white like clean, white like smooth, white like peace. All this and even more. It is one of the scents which set you in a meditative mood. I like to use these kind of scents on a  calm day or when I am relaxing or praying. It is really peacefull and a close to skin scent.
Here again I have to state how well composed it is, so typical for Al Qurashi. Very fine ingridients low dosed!

What I am smelling is a soft oudh note which is an internal component drawing through all the other ingridients all the time you wear it. There are very low dosed: a flowery note, something like a mix of vanilla, almond (though I hate both as a single perfume note) and cinammon; just a hint of all of these makes a great mix here.

I can recommend this scent absolutely to everyone: who don't know wheather to love or to hate oudh, the oudh-starter, oudh lover in general, the ones who are undecisive, who like oudh in western oudh perfumes but lacking the authenticity. So practically - everyone :DD

Please forgive me and stay tuned. Soon there will come several reviews like f.e.:

- White Oud / Al Qurashi

I need your help!

As I am going to open up an islamic fashion store I want to offer arabian perfumes as well. Among the branded sealed ones I also want to sell decanted perfumes. I would like to present these perfumes in the arabic attar decanter, the beautifull glass bottles with gold leafs and paintings like this:

I only saw them in UAE in the arabian perfumeries and these ones on the pictures were the most beautifull I saw at Arabian Oud and at Al Qurashi. The other perfume shops didn't have such beautifull ones.

Since I probably won't be able to catch up to get to UAE before the opening of my shop to look at the perfume souk (I heard there they are available) I am desperately searching for them through the net but fruitless!
In a few days I will be in Paris inshaallah to visit some wholesalers and I so hope to find them there eventually.

So please if anyone know where I can get these ones let me know....

Or if anyone in UAE would be content to buy them for me (would send you the money by Paypal or however you wish :)) please contact me at www.bosnishmuslima@googlemail.com

Thank you very much <3

Tom Ford: Jasmine Rouge, Santal Blush, Violet Blonde and an upcoming make-up line

There are three new  TOM FORD fragrances for which I am waiting impatiently to be launched in September 2011.

Jasmine Rouge which will be added to the Tom Ford Private Collection ( I so love this minimalistic, classy bottles)

Santal Blush will be added to the Tom Ford Private Blend - White Musk Collection
and the Violet Blonde for the classic collection. (violet blonde - I love this name)

There is also a new high-end make up line launched by Tom Ford after the success with his Lipstick Collection.

For me it is the same as with perfumes I fall in love with the beautifull packages of lipsticks as well as with the substance.
What would be a product of Tom Ford if it wouldn't cost a fortune. $45 for a lipstick is already leaving my favorite Chanel lipsticks behind. But doesn't it look just stunning?
Since I am living in this fucking, unglamorous provincial town I still couldn't put my hand upon it as the Tom Ford Products are only available at five places throughout Germany.
Tom Ford told Vogue that his mother used lipstick each time before opening the door. In my opinion a lipstick changes your whole outfit in a second and give you this feminine elegance. That's why the lipstick is also my favorite make-up piece!
