Aged Cambodian Oil 10-years-plus – CAM RESERVE

Sale price Price $480.00 Regular price

This is where you start entering the authentic, ancient world of perfumery. While it may not be for everyone, it does require lots of experience and scent maturity.  To be able to understand, like and use such oils, we recommend that everyone tries it or at least smell it and get this exceptional olfactory memory.

This is 10-years-plus sand aged Cambodian Oud oil that was distilled exclusively by our house. While there are many ways and tricks to age the Oud oil or make it smell like its age, there is nothing as good or as apparent as fine sand aged Oud oil. A quality CAMRESERVE is rarely done these days not only because it takes years to accomplish but because you lose between 20% and 30% of the actual oil. The result is something that you will even love and adore forever or simply not accept as a perfume and never wear it. In both cases, it is something very unique and special, and those who love natural perfumery and understand the power of natural scents will find this mesmerizing and most delightful. None-the-less, if you are an avid Oud collector or lover, this is one oil that you don’t want to miss.

The opening is very ancient and pure - exclusively Cambodian, what you would smell in an ancient temple or a ceremony. Very manly and very masculine, non-apologetic, rebellious, unique and egotistic. Opening with clear, sharp and old wood notes with heavy leather and dusty accord of stones and earth. After a few hours, it will change and begins to a new world of sweetness, muskiness, and vanilla-like note with the woody, leathery accord still present. Closing with light castoreum and civet notes.

 

Category:
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 a 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.
