    Hello Gaharuans,
    Well we all know nothing beats pure Ouds by our beloved artisans. But what are some of the most authentic Oud smelling perfumes from Abdul Samad al Qurashi ? I use their Dahn al Oud Ateeq and Khashab al Aoud and like em. Is Ateeq really like aged Cambodian Oil ? That Boozy leathery fermented fruit sweetness ?

    Hi there!
    I've been looking for the most authentic smelling oud spray perfume for quite some time and found the two named among the best. The Ateeq smells very "realistic", yet, as is reasoned somewhere else on this forum, the quality of the oud used by the top players in the business (ASQ, Ajmal, Al Haramain,...) is very often questionable due to the laws of economy, i.e. increasing demand vs. scarcity of oud. The Khashab I have myself and I'm quite happy with it, albeit oud is not the main player here.
    FYI, my other favourites of this genre are AJMALs Dhan al Oud Shams (and the Mukhallat) and Dhan al Oud Arzan, as well as RASASIs Boruzz series that attempts to enhance the specific regional character of oud (Assam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia).

    @Oudyssey Thank you so much dear friend. I appreciate the insights. Our tastes match a lot :). I have all these except the dahn al oud shams and Arzan. I think I need to look up the Arzan one. Cheers. I was afraid to blindbuy it out of fear for synthetic oud smell. Thank you very much.

    Thank you! My pleasure. By the way, have you sampled Russian Adam's Areej Le Doré project? I haven't yet but I'm very much looking forward.

    Oh yes I did. Long back. He was kind enough to send me samples for review on my YouTube channel. I immediately ordered Siberian Musk and Oud Zen. All 3 perfumes have literally taken the International fragrance community by a storm. Absolutely magnificent range. Must have for perfume users. Haven't sniffed anything like his Siberian Musk.

    I have ASAQ Al Moulok/Amir Al Mishaal/King Abdullah Blend/Sheikh Saleh Al Saleh/Prince Khalid/Al Safa/Roh Al Oud/Lu Lu maknoon etc etc.
    Those things 'were' good till I was introduced with artisanal ouds & artisanal oud perfumes.
    Since I've started using natural _ synthetics causes severe allergy.
    But I've also pre-reformulated versions of some high end ASAQs. Use them very rarely.

    I gave a tiny spray of the Adams Siberian Musk to my Russian Uncle and he said it took him to his Grandfathers Villa and gave fond memories from his Grandfathers sweater & long nights of playing the Violin , Definitely a show stopper and game changer in the Perfume scene , am not a Perfume spray kind of user but Adams amazing creation changed my mind forever. ;)
