SOTD: Macaque by @zoologistperfumes ... Tsc tsc tsc... Let me start with the good part! Opening amazing. Everything that you ever wanted by looking at those notes. Sour green apples, lightly bitter green tea and some minor nuances from a few others in the back mashed up. Galbanum plays a big role, so you better like it.
From this point starts to become a bit like a sweet sappy (maybe the cedar wood combined with honey or Mimosa used here)... weirdly woody, with a light musky nuance to bring a bit of a mossy-fur (maybe soil like?)... and it loses me. Light and transparent it becomes very much a skin scent till disappears.
This is more about a forest with short vegetation then about the monkey. If you want a green scent from Zoologist please go with Panda!
A light, simplistic fragrance with a very Asian market focused theme IMO . I respect the lightness of the construction and the contrast in between top and base but... at the same time... meh. ... My Fragrance Journey!!!
Ever heard of an Oud from Tawi Tawi? Odds are you haven’t, that is…until now.
One would think we had completely lost our minds undergoing such a project, nothing was clear, and we found ourselves running in circles chasing a dream that seemed bleak at best. That didn’t stop us, we were in love with the Philippines; that umami-like spicy, evergreen, milky aroma it boasted, and wanted nothing less but to capture that same aroma in liquid form. (If you’d like to read more about how Adan came to be, click here)
We have a rule to only releasing aged Oud at Al Hashimi, but this is an exception. The quality of materials used to distill Adan shine through, meaning that there are no off-notes involved, and no harshness either. Rather, what you’re getting is an extremely playful oil, that morphs and changes every chance it gets throughout the top and middle, before settling into it’s well crafted base. Not only do we see this as an opportunity to show what quality material and craftsmanship can do to an Oud in it’s first stages, we also wanted you to be a part of our journey, by witnessing the stages Adan will go through before it settles down into what will be a staple in Oud history.
By now, I bet you’re wondering what Adan smells like… well, being such a youngster, it has all these sudden transformations that regularly occur throughout the life of your swipe.
On first swipe you’re hit with a cornucopia of herbs, vibrant forestry, with a very quiet white, powdery undertone. Imagine yourself sitting atop a luscious grassy hill, only to have the sun rise before your eyes, and everything rapidly adopts a golden hue. Honeyed beeswax quickly takes over the scene. Then it dawns on you… Walla Patta sunshine combined with Bornean greenery; but enough of that, this is the Philippines, bringing you the most delicate white florals inlaid on a sweet resinous base. As you start taking downward dips into the resinous base, you’re introduced to citrusy frankincense, combined with creamy dairy, which is one of the most salient qualities of raw Filipino Oud.
And thus, without further ado, I present you Adan. #Oud#Oudh#Agarwood#Aloeswood
A lovely encounter today with our muse Mogul empress #nurjahan ... Repost @guccibeauty ... Nur Jahan (1577-1645) was the twentieth wife of the Mogul Emperor Jahangir. Whilst taking a inspiriting bath of oil and herbs, she fell asleep. The sun broke down the natural elements in the water and when she awoke, she saw a layer of film on the surface. Immediately she rubbed the balsam all over her body and realized that it was far more effective than mere rosewater. Ever since Nur Jahan is associated with the discovery of #attar.

EARTHY, FRESH AND SWEET
Today I smell of oud, musk and geranium oil + L’Homme Idéal L’Intense, a darker version of the original, without the oud and rose notes of the EDP and with the aromatic sage notes of the EDT amped up...on that beautiful sweet, smoked woody base.
These two smell damn good layered together!
