Beautiful beast, smoky oud, not due to the heated resin of Aroha Kayaku but by nature of the Sumbawan oud that's in this. It also has fruitiness coming from the other ouds of Cambodian and Thai origin that gives it a sweet and playful aspect to it amidst the dark and deep plumes of smoke. This is similar to Aroha Kayaku I tried recently, but this has a fruity and a less of a reserved aura as opposed to the full on darkness with very shy fruitiness and rugged-masculine aspect of the Aroha Kayaku (2020). I'm loving this one in the fall weather, keeps me cozy and warm with its darkness and smokey facets.
