What do you know about the house? Thanks
He’s one of the best top tier Oud distillers in the world. Upper level everything. Top tier oils, top tier Attars. If people think Ensar is expensive they’re in for a rude awakening with ASO. But make no mistake the quality is there on all fronts. The last perfume he collaborated on was with SJA perfumes and it fetched a $1200 price tag.
He’s also a distiller who values tradition, culture, and heritage. His work is an extension of the ethics he chooses to live by and it shows. Very knowledgeable on ancient perfumery and is almost a historian of sorts. Obviously I have no clue what these perfumes will cost but I know these will be upper level/top tier materials all the way.
Great thread idea for a great house.
To be clear he didn't set that price.
So that won't necessarily be the price point for the upcoming collection.
His Taif rose otto is rare grade through family connections in Saudi. Trade of precious liquids is very controlled to say the least. That's the level of quality we're talking about here.
Great idea to start this thread with these releases imminent . I am very much looking forward to these , I own the Al Shareef Oudh / SJA collaboration winter edition and it is absolutely stunning , the blending is exquisite so these could be very special indeed .
Can you brief us on how that colab perfume smell, perform and if any similarities to the other market products?
It kind of reminds me of the blending you would get if Maurice Roucel was using real musk in a Shalini Perfume . If you have tried something like Jardine Nocturne it has a similar kind of sillage and projection and blending approach , very seamless and more in the classical perfumery style of blending but using all naturals and real musk.
At first I was surprised at the $1,200 price tag. But then, it’s the price for a set of 3 different frags. Might go for an individual bottle later.
