I’ve heard a lot of back and forth on this house. Supposedly the proprietor is a very nice guy and I know he has many fans. The attars that I smelled did seem like they had synthetic compounds(to my nose anyway) but that doesn’t necessarily bother me.

Sorry I’m not any help here!

I ordered last summer. Order arrived from the UK by UPS International. Was fast shipping then. Faransi/Marmin threw in quite a few samples with my order of Islamabad. Varanis should have one of those oud samples. Marmin is French, right? Faransi.

French guy who set up shop in UK then moved to Dubai. He's posted bio videos on his site or on Youtube in the past. I purchased a bunch of samples when he was Al Faransi in Birmingham. They were all misses for me and I thought Shiekh Al Faransi was a syrupy mess, but at the price point it didn't matter. Mixed Musk Arts (MMA) was kind of interesting, though, and dirt cheap. If you like musk and want to sample some for next to nothing, the musk collection might be worth checking out. Here's a thread with thoughts on the house before the rebrand: https://basenotes.com/threads/abdul-karim-al-faransi-thoughts.430449/

A friend of mine has about 80 fragrances from this house. They are amazing! The prices used to be almost too good to be believed, but the prices are going up, and up. If you like very concentrated perfume oils/extracts, these are amazing. I wish I'd known about them a few years ago when the prices were really low.
