Great base for an Oud formula
RRUGGER (New York, NY) 1/13/2020 12:00 PM
Complex, sophisticated and diffusive, strongly resinous with somewhat of a top green nuance. It blends wonderfully with Rose and/ or Carnation, or with Ylang-Ylang for an even more exotic floral oriental. It is a very powerful ingredient, go gentle on the dropper. Amber and/ or Tonka Bean can tame it, Patchouli gives it a balsamic and natural effect without diminishing its character. To me this brings a similar effect to that of greenish, resinous Cambodi Oud, this is not an animalic, soaked Assam Oud; but blended with florals a certain animalic aspect comes out, where perhaps one doesn't need an animalic Musk to complement it, but a lighter, floral, or fruity Musk does the job without needing to include additional animalic notes.
Powdery incense

The oud qualities hit you at the beginning with a dry, slightly acrid musky black pepper quality. Then comes a floral, musky grape-like note, followed by a powdery, slightly ionone quality. The combined effects remind me very much of Nag Champa. Not exactly agarwood but very lovely in its own right, straddling incense and musk.
