Adam Michael has this to say “This Khao Yai Oud is a very pleasant aged masculine material that aromatically is old saturated resinous woody throughout, with traces of decay, spice, incense, leather, and cresole entwined with plumes of exotic sweet fruit qualities. An exceptionally well balanced bitter-sweet material throughout and nothing remotely like our popular and certainly more affordable plantation offerings. This wild oud is both clean and refined throughout.
The aroma profile is pretty consistent, however towards the dry down on both the strip and my skin, it displays soft oleo resinous peppery qualities along with the cleanest characteristic aspects found within vetiver heart materials.
Applied to my skin (back of my hand), I can detect this aroma for about 10 ish hours, and this despite the washing of my hands. The aroma on strip and skin is an intimate affair, becoming more noticeable when applied in generous amounts.
Subject to weight, warm amber red to mud brown in colour and of a slightly thick resinous, yet pourable consistency. 6 years aged at the time of writing (30/08/20) and produced in a stainless steel pot.
This wild oud will benefit (in my opinion) perfume creations of a dark, sultry, animalic, erotic and sexually charged theme. Eleonora on the other hand interprets this material differently and does not associate this aromatic with anything erotic or sexually charged. For her, this Khao Yai Oud is a refined, distinguished, attractive, 30-40 something gentleman’s scent, masculine, elegant and understated.”

The good oud. Good oud in a tiny amount. It works. The smell is as described. In the search of the holy grail of ouds. It’s a good oud. As described.

I received this oud in the mail today and I generally don’t like to review a product like this so quickly. Oud is so deep and complex that one really needs to take time to write a full evaluation. I did open the sample and noticed such a quality that stood out – I figured that I would write a first impression.
Most typical run-of-the-mill ouds are a little off-putting to me when they are fresh from the bottle. In this case, however, this Wild Khao Yai was pleasant from the very beginning. I can tell this has been aged well and is definitely high quality. As I continue to get to know this oud, I plan on coming back and writing a more detailed review.

A really masterpiece offered by hermitage store. Just like the smell of Wet earth after heavy rain in summer in Morocco were all the dry fruits, the spices start to infuse their aroma and exotic qualities after the hot sun starts to shine again..worth having this in our collection..a very unique oil!!
