The story started in 1916 when an Arabic royalty that was in love with rare oud oils decided to distill the highest quality Chinese oud which he adored, through a common friend he met a Chinese politician who had a land (or access to a Land) in the Chinese island this land had aged 300 - 400 years old Agarwood trees, they become best friends and they commissioned a man who was known for his extraordinary ability to distill high-quality oils at that time to do the work, it was done as a challenge as it's never been attempted before to distill oil from sinking grade wood, it was done and three liters in total were made, one for the Chinese gentlemen, one for the Arabic royalty, and one for the man who distilled it and made all the work possible, Sayed Gafoor al-Attar my great grandfather. Inherited through the generations half a liter is what is left of this oil.
This is the Emperor of China
This is not your regular oud oil, guaranteed to stay on the skin for a minimum of 24 hours on the hair for 3 days and on the clothes for a week, this will be overwhelmed and overpower not only the best of the designer's Perfumes but even other kinds of oud oil.
Distilled from 300 - 400 years old trees and aged for 100 years this not only one of the rarest and most ancient natural Perfumes that you can actually wear but this is also one of the most exclusive perfumes in the world, currently in the personal use of three royalties. This comes with a warning sign "not for the weak hearts" so if you don't really know your ouds this is probably not for you and no there will be no samples given of this one, this is the first oil on the restricted list.
This is The Emperor of China
The first nose is smoky incense, heavy temple smokiness with clear hints of leather and aged wood
The second nose is after a few minutes is more oudyness, with hints of vanilla, brown sugar, and tobacco it is settled but projects really well.
The closing nose is after a few hours and it settles down until the end it is leathery wood with clear hints of herbal and light spices.
The total amount of this oil is less than half a liter, this is the best of the best + 100 years.
Even though oud oils and natural perfumes generally are unisex and can be worn by both men and women, this specific one if very potent, pungent and deep not in any animalistic way but more in a incense leathery way thus it is recommended for men more than women but still, it can perfectly be worn by a lady.
Extinct – Rarest – Cannot be found anymore. These are the rarest raw materials on the planet, museum-quality oils, those oils cannot be found, replicated, or re-generated. There are such very limited amounts that they get sold by the milligram. The people who work and deal with those oils around the world can be counted on one hand. The majority of the time, these oils will be restricted to royalties and billionaires. The lowest age of these oils starts from 50 years old going up to 500 years old. Anyone who holds one of these oils holds an experience that is exclusive to one human being on this planet. Only 0.0001 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.
Very limited – Extremely Rare – Extremely hard to find. These are oils that it’s simply a matter of time, and by that, we mean few years, before it goes to the previous category (extinct). These are oils that most probably were a symbol of luxury and opulence throughout the ages and very few privileged people in history had the chance to enjoy them. Only 0.001 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.
Limited – Rare – Hard to find. This is the lowest of the categories we have but it’s still considered by many as a pinnacle to express class, luxury, and taste in its most aromatic form. These are very limited oils, very hard to make and very few have access to them. Those oils are not extinct, and we really hope they won’t be anytime soon, but they are simply rare because of the raw material they are extracted from, the process and the quality in the making and distillation. Again, these are all 100% natural oils, very concentrated and very powerful, and they will dominate the comparison with any alcohol-based perfume or cologne in every single aspect, every single time. By maximum measurement, only 0.01 percent of the population will have the privilege of experiencing the power of this olfactory.
