How? I Apply the Fragrance

1 - 9 Sprays

There is a sweet sarsaparilla in the opening that is spicy, fruity, and tangy. This isn’t full-on root beer, but imagine a Thai-style root beer. Like with Thai food; with every bite, you get a mix of sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami. This is exactly this top; you get all five of these smells at once, each uniquely blended into their own category on a bed of smoke, oud, and soft authentic musk. 

Spiced-up florals are rose and a hidden jasmine, with Thai tea spices lingering on top with the sarsaparilla thing. Their signature Hindi oud is there, but only as a note in the crowd and not on stage like it is in Emperor Hind. The oud is just one of the faces that you see as you whiff through the scent. The florals in the heart are going to throw you. Again, this is Indian perfume, and it has its own signature, just like the cuisine. Imagine an Indian/Thai fusion. There are flowers you know, but they are spiced and colored up in a new way, featuring different beautiful facets of the materials. The sweet, fresh air really is becoming a memory maker. Saffron provides aromatics with the pandan leaf that are earthy and buttery. Think of a buttery patchouli, and we are moving in the right direction with pandan. Pandan is a slightly sweet, slightly bitter, buttery leaf. 

The animalics are all there but toned way down to just sit on the skin and make magic with all the spices, florals, and woods, including the oud playing out through the entire fragrance. Onchya shells, oakmoss, and patchouli are noticeable. Smoky, luminous opoponax and vanilla give this an interesting amber flavor, leaving that whole Thai cola thing the entire time.

Beautiful Hindi oud gets changed up with the Thai oud. The magic of these spices make me think this is the direction Old Spice could have gone if capitalism and greed weren’t the only motivating factor. Anyone ever try Hindi Tabac? Think of that, and then add a ton of fresh spice. This is modern-day spice that will get even better as it ages.

Overall, this is a fresh musk with a plethora of spices.

    1. On my phone answering comments quickly I don't have it. Literally a quick google search for you just like me. No not trying to offend you. I know it's weird I don't surf the web on my phone I just do comment in YouTube Studio app. I literally just spent over 8 hours reviewing this and telling you it's available.

    2. They are on Facebook and Instagram get a message into them most likely they will honor first come, first serve. Or hopefully have the decency to tell you time it's back up. Reference the channel that way it will be fair and if something happens will report.

  1. This brand is so good it's even ridiculous. When others are charging hundreds and hundreds of $ and these guys just release hit after hit. Such a shame they produce such a low quantity, it's sad

  2. Just recently veered off the road and getting into Oud and dense eastern fragrance…. And I'm learning a lot from you. And this one just went on my wish list…. I had no idea Dixit and Zak did this kind of perfumery… Awesome Brandon thank you ✌️

    1. Thanks, yes projection suffers. This is one of the best natural perfumes on the market period. Feel free to suggest any others here. I'm not talking one that are built out of natural isolates only either. But as far as material and what it is this is about as high of standard as I've seen. I like knowing I'm wearing an all natural. Tip just layer with one of the Molecule fragrances that suit you. You will get what you are looking for out of this. Me I have moved past that in my journey. Not taking any shots at all, but you should love this after layering with your fav of those.
