“Extremely rare, pure wild 30+ years aged top-grade, copper distilled Sri Lankan oud oil”
OK let’s elaborate
Pure: unmixed undiluted

Wild: NO human interference was done until the moment of extracting the oud from the tree. This means that the tree was naturally grown, lived on water from rain and nearby rivers, no fertilizers were used and no human interference with the growth of the tree or the natural process of the Oud composing in it.

30 years aged: real years, not through heat, burying, or smoking. This oil was distilled 30 years ago

Copper distilled: distilled in a copper pot, one of the oldest and best ways to distill oud oil

Top grade: the wood that this oil was made from is incense quality and not oil making quality in texture, aroma, shape and weight (if you know about oud you know how hard and expensive it is to say this statement and back it up 100% with a money back guarantee).

Sri Lankan oud oil: real Sri Lankan oud from Ratnapura city from the province of Sabaragamuwa.

This is one lovely and extremely rare oud oil that is coming to the edge of extinction. In the Middle East specifically, the Persian-Arabic gulf region where 70% of the world oud consumption takes place, this oud is extremely loved and demanded, it’s called “Silani” oud from the old name of Sri Lanka “Silan”.

While many of the new oud enthusiasts and lovers seek the “Indian” and “Cambodian” for their projection and longevity in all their different kinds and forms, this is more of a special oud or something for the experts and the experienced. Believe it or not, the aged pure Sri Lankan Oud oil or “Silani” can fetch as much as ten times the price of the Indian grades and sometimes even more.

This oil has a very different profile from the Cambodian and the Indian, it’s more settled, calm, and smooth; doesn’t have as much of an animalistic tone and raw notes.

The character is smooth, sweet, fruity

The first nose has a little herbal note (because of the age) after few second it opens to a sweeter aromatic ray of notes with hints of coffee, smoke, leather, and oak trees

The texture is heavy, sticky, and dark (like any good top-grade oud oil)

If you are a collector or serious about Oud then this is something that you have to try


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 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.
