Extremely Rare 60-Years-Old Gold Dust Cambodian Oud – CAM RARE

Sale price Price $3,200.00 Regular price

This is one of the most woody and spicy Cambodian Oud oils. The notes and accords of it are difficult to be made or replicated these days. This is as a result of the fact that it is distilled from what is called “gold dust”- a residue of the highest quality Oud woods in Cambodia. It is usually described as the scent of the Arab royalties, as well as the sheikhs’ signature scents. It is very familiar to the Arabic, and Middle Eastern nose, connoisseurs and avid Oud collectors know this one well.

Its opening is very woody and wide, with notes from greenwood to dark ancient wood. It soon changes to something like a beautiful dream, and you get the real magic of the jungle, grass and tropical islands with hints of spices and leather. After a few hours, you get the fresh green scent of the leaves accompanied by delicate tobacco notes carried on a palate of honey and sour candy. The closing is clean white linen with light leather in the background.

 

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.
