Pleasantly surprised with the strength of the oil. Looking forward to finding one with chocolate or brown sugar notes.
Select Cambodi is a beautiful, Cambodian Oud Oil. The smell profile that is listed is spot on. The sweetness, which cambodian oud's are known for, really shines through in the dry down. I can't wait to get Super Cambodi and then move up to the private reserve. Oudimentary is a great site for authentic oud oils at an unbelievable price!
This is my first Cambodian oud. I love the fig/dried fruits notes. Surprisingly, it has a strong phenolic quality at first that I wasn't expecting. It isn't bad but it certainly threw me for a loop, as I wouldn't describe this scent as woody, per se. Maybe I had gotten used to a Thai oud I bought from another company that is the epitome of barnyard.
Overall, a good scent. It lasts a decent amount of time and projects well at first.
When first applied, this oil has a medium "barnyardy" accord, typical of Cambodian ouds. The biggest letdown with this oil is the longevity of the scent. One hour later and it's completely gone. Very disappointing. :-(
Great Oil for the price. I wear this often and appreciate every experience!
hello very happy with my order, a canbondi as I like with fruity notes and it notes animalk
Smells good. Thank you for the sample also.
I am very happy and grateful
i love this oud. the tobacco, and maybe a note of dried fruit give it some sweetness (not too sweet, tho'). smoke comes later, which i love. sillage is pretty good as my husband just walked in a couple of rooms away and asked if i'd just gotten into my ouds! the longevity is great. i'm thrilled that i found oudimentary, having worn oud fragrances for years and wanting to delve into oils.
Good product and service. Would recommend.
I recall when I first received my first whiff of Oud back in the summer of 2008. I was coming in little late to Isha prayer, and an Egyptian brother on whom I was praying next to was wearing it. I was totally blown away by it's uniqueness. So after the salat.," I asked him,"what oil or cologne is that"? And he replied 'Oud'. So I was baffled because the scent actually enhanced the concentration and focus of my prayer. So ever since then I've been chasing that scent for the past 11 years. And now I've finally (found it here) at Oudimentary. Thank God! Because I spent a lot of money on garbage ouds from from over seas, that led to many disappointments. Nonetheless I'm very satisfied with this Private Reserve Cambodi, and I can truly say it was worth every penny. The scent is long lasting and smells better as time goes on. If you're a Oud enthusiast like I am, you would definitely want this in your possession.
One word. Amaaazing! Worth the price. Expensive really does smell good.
