Adam Michael has this to say “From the bottle, the aroma of this plantation Prachin Buri Thai Oud is decaying woody, Thai fruity sweet, with a big standout dose of maple syrup and finished with breezy, trace medicinal menthol qualities. Applying a single drop to the skin, I find the top oozes rich resinous woody character and is complemented by powerful plumes of sticky candied exotic sweetness. All very true to the classic DNA of a bottle of Thai oud but its the maple syrup richness that really stands this apart from a bottle of the usual Provence of Trat produced ouds.
Over the course of a few hours you are hit with notes just like that of opening a bag of licorice candies, following on with a firework display of voluptuous exotic fruits and coupled with stacks of rich resinous woody warmth and traits of incense character sitting in the background. All finished off with a whisper of cresol. Working through the gears, this material goes onto indulge you in some of the finest earthy, green jungle, lightly spiced, rooty and “after the rain” aromas you could ever wish to smell. Comparable to smelling our organic cultivated South Indian vetiver crossed with an age old bottle of mitti attar/ petrichor. The dry down is warm, almost buttery woody, liquorice fruity infused, with the most minute traces of cresol, coconut and caramel chocolate.
One drop of this Thai oud applied to my skin lasts for 5 plus hours. I personally find this scent profile favours colder temperatures and it pairs spectacularly well with our Super Premium Patchouli Absolute and also our Sweet Incense E.O. Of a pourable consistency, aged for one year prior to being offered here for sale, plantation produced and in this instance a material that has all the signature hallmarks of a wild bottle of Thai oud without the crazy price tag. Highly recommend material.”

This is a beautiful offering of cultivated oud that I find wonderfully multifaced and non-linear depending on the concentration, carrier, time after application and of course what you may choose to combine it with.
Overall It is loud, tenacious and seductively sensual. Smelled straight out of the bottle you definitely pick up a slightly bitter, medicinal aroma that quickly gives way to a near indescribable nebula of aromas. I get impressions of creamy warm wood, light muskiness, wafts of scotch, maple syrup, cherries, plum, black berries, raspberries, and balsam. Definitely an extremely enjoyable and precious ingredient.

When I decided to buy some of Hermitage’s ouds, I felt as if I was indulging my slightly (?) obsessive hobby. I am not rich, but fortunately I could to buy them-,I felt I really needed to understand this oud thing. I am so very grateful that I took the plunge, equally grateful that hermitage offers them at all.
Ouds are unlike any other essential oil. Their complexity, diversity- the effects they create are in a league of their own, so there is no way to experience this w/o purchasing quality oud-
So of the 3 ouds I got, Laos , Cambodia- and this one, they are all very different from each other.
This one is delicate- it is still very present, perfectly strong enough- the balance of notes are very well blended, lighter in mood.
It is all still right there, blond woods, light smoke,sweet fruit- even the licorice Adam speaks of. The animal is distant.there are berries too.
This is the oud to cry over, this one reaches into my heart, this one whispers secrets. Again a tiny drop of blood on the tongue.
This is a song or a poem.
I am so very glad I did this.

Prachin Buri oud aka the jungle candy. A fierce gourmand oil, upon applied to the skin, a 3-D hologram of sugar-glazed fruits trapped inside a medicine cabinet. Think of ripe papayas, apples, and dried berries, a generous bowl placed on top of a freshly varnished wooden table. Japanese incenses qualities can be picked up easily, making the aesthetic of this oil very easy to work with. After the initial 40-60 minutes the medicinal camphor/borneol notes are tamed down to reveal a mellow round blond tobacco with a cushion of benzoin, vanillin tones sparkling gently along its 6 hours ride. Fading to a natural white musk skin scent. In terms of color and texture visualization, this one will be a milky orange velvet fabric. I intend to pair it with white florals, raspberry, grapefruit, and guaiac wood. Thank you for this wonderful offering, Adam!
