How? I Apply the Fragrance

Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared. I can’t find the rose, at least not in the way I am used to. It’s hidden. It’s so much a part of the glorious air that when you find it, you’re completely intoxicated. Every time I wear it, I go to look for the sharp rose I am familiar with, but it’s not predictable; it’s delicate and opulent. It’s living off the skin, mixed in with touches of green and woods. The oud drenches it: let’s not mistake what these are. These are first and foremost Oud perfumes. This is literally drenched in a mind-buzzing air of oud all around. The smoothest camphorous medicinal oud wave your nose has ever ridden on. When you finish the wave, you then come to know the rose that’s in here and how it was watching the first session all along, waiting to take you on a dance from the shore. It’s a clean ocean-air animalic full of florals. The camphorous signature that is prominent in all three Tahas. Now Taha bends everything and mixes five ouds together. My mind not only has to expand five times but five times in oud language. Each oud carries so many individual facets that each need to be multiplied by 5. The rose just dances and circles around a plethora of oud bliss. Camphor is the easiest note to pull out on its own, giving off a smoky vibe. It and the oud provide wafts of brown leather with rose syrup. Not jam syrup soaked in leather but rather a jam sitting on top. There are two big transitions in the perfume. Overall, this is a jungled wet camphorous woods drydown with leather.

    1. Therapeutic Fragrance how do you get your hands on these sauces man!! Everything time I’ve visited the website, it’s down!! I would buy a decant of some Areej or anything else that’s very Animalic that you would be willing to sell!! Something funky from the oud!!????????????

    1. @Therapeutic Fragrance I'm planning on getting at least two of the three and a sample of the third. Maybe all three, I don't know yet. There are so many releases right now, I have to pace myself and narrow it down a bit. I'm trying to choose the top options first and make sure I"m ready for those, then everything else after that. My Areej sampler arrives today, I'm excited to see what lights me up out of those as well, and really pleased to be able to sample first on those this time.

  1. Tupac Shakur the "Rose" that grew from concrete.In the song Me Against the World
    says.With all this extra stressin'
    The question I wonder is after death, after my last breath
    When will I finally get to rest? Through this suppression
    They punish the people that's askin' questions
    And those that possess, steal from the ones without possessions
    The message I stress, to make it stop study your lessons
    Don't settle for less, even the genius asks-es questions
    Be grateful for blessings
    Don't ever change, keep your essence
    The power is in the people and politics we address
    Always do your best, don't let the pressure make you panic
    And when you get stranded
    And things don't go the way you planned it
    Dreamin' of riches, in a position of makin' a difference
    Politicians and hypocrites, they don't wanna listen
    If I'm insane, it's the fame made a brother change
    It wasn't nothin' like the game
    It's just me against the World.????????

  2. I revel at the thought of a "mind-buzzing oud"; sometimes wondering if the "juice" is a food; to stagger with swagger with an oud-soaked dagger, and thrust it upon my smug solitude. ????

  3. Oh my Lord…. Brandon, color me impressed! Yes you are absolutely correct, I used varying (and from opposing ends of the scent spectrum) oud oils deliberately to give a very full-spectrum sesquiterpene experience that the wearer can't break up into the individual geographic components.
    And yes, in Al-Jazzab I used a hefty dose of a royal grade oud (*cough* Phan Fa *cough*), as well as one upper-high grade oud ???? so yep, that mind buzz you're feeling is very real ????

    1. The man thanks for putting this info up here. People don't fully realize than you put this stuff in writing you can take it to the bank. So glad you put these together. This oud is outrageous. Feel free to correct and direct any comments on your vids. Get back to that studio????, the people want so much more????. Great launch my friend.

  4. @Therapeutic Fragrance Just one other I wanted to mention which I sampled recently and thought was really excellent and its 'Terra' from the house Divina Terra (nose is Paolo Terenzi) its an extract de parfum. I'm surprised there are very little or no reviews on this. Hope you are able to get your nose on this one if its available in your area/country.

  5. @Therapeutic Fragrance: At the end of the day you're wearing the smell of those ingredients, not the value of them. I have no doubts about the quality of Ensar's perfumes, but they don't smell as good as Dmitry's, Zak's or Russian Adam's fragrances. It's not enough to work with top quality ingredients. You have to know how to blend them. Just my two cents.

  6. Hey April I will delete this I just wanted to thank you for bringing everything up earlier this is one of the biggest reasons I have a channel. We are spending a lot of money I want to make sure the best is found at the same time the fairest practices are followed. I still have no word of what happened, but I hope it gets worked out. I would be mad to if I was buying today. It's not fair to sample and then might have to miss out on everything.
