Artisanal Oud

Koh Karaza

Koh Karaza been a year in the making and aging and it unique in that it has a striking and unmistakable opening sour cherry note as soon as you apply it to your hand.  As the dry down progresses, the sourness starts to fade and just leaves a very sweet morello cherry with incense and floral note, with a hint of smooth pipe tobacco which is a transmutation of the previous sour note.  Half-an-hour into the dry down and the Koh Karaza has one last surprise in store as the scent starts to radiate an intensifying cherry blossom incense note. 

This Artisanal Oud provides a unique experience, and something that I think we'll be hard pressed to pull off again.  I've smelled oils in the past, which are quite unique and which display the potential of Aquilaria Crassna from clean sencha to deep prunes or floral notes, but nowhere have I smelled anything like this. And I have regretted in the past not retaining some bottles of other unique profiles associated with this subspecies, as I have not come across the like again.  I have a feeling that this will be the fate of this oil, and it will be hard to replicate once it's sold out. We don't have much of this oil. I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of the first ones sold out, in all honesty, because it is it is true a truly unique oil.

The Morello cherry note might not be to everyone's taste, but as an oud connoisseur and collector, an enthusiast, it's definitely an oil that I'm a big fan of.
