Okay experiment time.  Hottest day of the year in Portland.  What do I do listen to the people on YouTube the plethora of reviewers saying don’t wear loud fragrances in the heat.  This is Portland baby we define going against the grain and why and offer the path. True trailblazers in all things why I love living here.  I go swipe on a thai oud that is thick and potent. Let’s see if this heat has anything on thai oud.

 

Holy sweetness.  I have never smelt such a basc of sugar on my skin.  The scent becomes me makes me sweeter. Makes me approachable, in one of the rarest 90 degree days this early in the year this melts into my skin providing the extra umph to get me up hills.  The roads to myself as the fair weather cyclists stay under freon. The oud literally becomes part of me not overpowering but becoming pleasant. Powering me twenty miles to my finish. Yes doing this the oud soaks into my body and gives me its healing anointing.  Leaving a trace of just the light sweet wrist to enjoy my post ride efforts.

 

Out of the bottle very potent medicinal almost like an ancient condensed cough syrup.  It has the #farmmusk down. Just the smell alone from the bottle makes this advanced. A bit but.  After applying on the skin I don’t know how no rhyme or reason this thing just goes sweet. Picture Thai iced tea sweet the condensed sweetener with the heavy duty red tea concoction.  brewed black tea, often spiced with ingredients such as star anise, crushed tamarind, cardamom.  Instead of black tea imagine rooibos as a soft earthy note, but everything else condensed into a syrup.  I have never had something so sweet and manly on my skin at the same time before.

NEW CATEGORIES:  There is literally over a hundred aroma chemicals this just helps define some characteristics to help your pocket book.

  1. Thx Brandon. I like your idea about a research on Oud oil health benefits. I could do well with some sampling myself. Did order a set from Dimitry Bortnikov.

  2. I have Ensar Oud Yusuf and Oud Extraordinaire and Feel Oud Koh Chang Intense all Thai ouds they are in order from favorite to least favorite. Oud Yusuf was my first oud given to me by a friend after I got out of a coma then he passed away shortly after. I put away 5 gr that I'll probably never use but for that reason it's my favorite Thai oud. Just got some Sri Lankan oud wow different story.

    1. Kyle as always thanks for the feedback. I was doing a quick video here and this is when my tongue got tied up. I really make an effort to only focus on the distiller of the video. I meant this is the first Thai we are visiting outside of the big two I have extensively covered on the channel.

      This is also the first that met the real profile I always here people talking about when they mention thai characteristics. This is a complete different experience than Yusuf. And extraordinaire is it's own thing. I own a tola and 2.5 grams of it, if that tells you anything. Trying something like this is really highlighting a lot of areas of oud for me.

  3. Anyone interested in oud I have an oud forum on facebook the group is secret right now but I can invite people. There are distillers there if you want to learn about oud more
