Looking over all of them I am mostly looking forward for Le Mitti. It looks like the only thing that I am still missing in my collection. That being said, I'm also wondering if I should get a Mitti attar(or is this a perfume) from Russian Adam, when there are so many attar vendors that are most likely more proficient in this art.
Most likely I'm going to skip these as well.

All look very good to me though. And considering it will not simply be traditional indian made stuff that can be found through a few vendors, this will have a french twist to it, modernizing the formulas in a sense.
Only thing that is a little, not even concerning, but valid to wonder about, is cocoa note in 2 frags, and if there wont be much of overlap.

What are the chances the sample sets arrive prior to individual FBs being released? Is that supply logistics glitch fixed? Disclaimer: I haven’t ordered samples since collection 4 or 5, and bottles were sold out before I got my samples. lol.

Adam has always done wonders with his florals. Indian and french styles are my favorites. I think I'll blind buy the full set and will come back into the fold : ).

Just like old times...

Iirc collection 6 was handled pretty well, I think my samples showed up a week or two before the full bottle release. Hopefully they keep it up because I can’t say anything sounds exciting enough for me blind buy this time around.

It would really be nice to know the cost of the full set and individual bottles so that we can better plan for our purchases.

Whole 2 people talked about it, and 1 guestimeted set to be over 1300. I think might be up to 1500 but not more

I wore Ottoman Empire II (extrait) earlier today. Sometimes I wish it's oud, rose and other floral facets were a bit more prominent. Instead, it somehow becomes this fossil amber, myrrh, muscenone inflected musky amber trail. It could also be due to my very dry skin. Thankfully the attar is sublime on me.

Adam just posted a video.

TL/DR:
Around 1700 for the whole collection but he makes it for 1500 for those who order the complete set and he offers the postage wich is around 100. Samples will be sent from the fulfilment centers but the collection will be posted directly from Thailand.

Since we just got some cool weather here, I jumped at the opportunity to throw on some Oud Zhen….and wow, so good! Since most of my collection is cool weather driven, I can’t wait to start back into some of the beauties! AdN tomorrow!
I just did AdN the other day and Oud Zhen today. I had to take a break from OZ because I went crazy with it for a few months straight lol. It’s perfect today. It’s nice and cool out I’m getting some nice almost vanillic creaminess (for lack of a better term) and that beautiful saffron along with what I describe as like a smoky cocoa effect. Good stuff! Can’t wait to see how this one ages after like 10 years.

Ooh this will be next on my list since it’s cool out. I love OEII…and I get the same as you from it, with a sparkly effect in there. Doesn’t come across as a rose scent to me either. But I love it! Speaking of the attar btw.

Oh noes, $1500 for a full collection, that stings! Bud damn do some of these look good.

Beauty and the Beast
Gul Hina
Mysore Incenza
Malik Al Motia
That’s the top of the list for me….

What am I ever going to do with 50ml of Mitti? It’s not wearable (30mi longevity). This really should have come in a 10ml bottle max imho.

Ambre de Coco…. Anyone scarred of this? I know I am, if RA says it’s challenging, you better brace yourself.

I am going to buy a sample set and test first. If the past is a predictor, for me some will be FBW and some not.
RA said the individual bottles will follow the sets by "a few weeks or a month."
That should be perfect timing to make an informed decision and buy the bottles that clicked for me as samples. For which I am grateful

Adding that I love the sandalwood oil RA used in his recent attars. If that sandalwood is featured in all of the sprays except the Mitti, I think I have that right, I might find that I like most of these new sprays. Thinking how much I like Santal Galore.
