If you want to smell like a top-flight player in Dubai I totally recommend the REALOUD in the tamer version. Oud is a fragrance that is worshiped in the middle east and you can smell it wafting off every dude stepping out of his Veyron.
Here's a pic of my perfumes as I keep them prior to market in a beverage cooler. Essential oils are extremely volatile, especially florals and citrus, so I keep everything at 59 degrees F in the original bottle until the order is placed.

Amazing! I don't know if I'll like middle-eastern chic, but we'll give it a whirl! Thanks!

I am not a connoisseur by any twist of the imagination and don't know what I am looking, or erm, smelling for. I normally wear Gucci Guilty and Lacoste Essential for whatever that's worth.

Interesting stuff. Don't know too much about perfumes but I'm learning from the information you've provided.

I look forward to seeing your site redesign. As someone in the industry, I'm excited to see your new site launch.

Good luck on your venture!

Yessir...just dropped them gently (well-packed) in the mail. I am getting huge surge of public response right now and picked up another stockist who carries some major players. Thanks for your order. I am switching to Shopify next week which seems to be the dominant player in e-commerce and have finally located my grafix guy so I will post when the new site is up and running.

If you want it, you can have it. PM me if you want the PSD. Up to you to code it or find someone that can. Meant to be a fullsize theme.



Full size link (1920x1080)
I appreciate your generosity. I am just about to switch to shopify for my e-commerce and have my web/grafix dude located, he disappears for periods of time and we only speculate where he disappears to, so i will show him this and see what he thinks about using it with shopify.

You have my attention. First and foremost, Congratulations. America needs an honest Le Nez.

Before I move forward, REALOUD is like Royal-Oud? Is your RO "feral" an EDP or EDT?

Is Skin Graft like Erolfa?

You sound like a Creed user based on all these associations. 1) My REALOUD is nothing like Royal Oud which I assume you are referring to Royal Oud by Creed which ain't half bad but my oud is made from oud that I buy direct from the distiller, blended with spices like saffron, immortelle, labdanum, also Bulgarian roses and wild vetiver which smells like cracked earth. My oud smells like what wealthy Arabs wear, not a western interpretation of this like Royal Oud. Also my product is 100 percent natural and I really don't believe Olivier Creed's claims of producing all natural products. 2) All my perfumes are EDP and the feral oud is so strong it should last for many, many hours. 3) Skin Graft has nothing to do with Erolfa. Erolfa is a very citrusy aquatic smell with that sort of metallic twang that I like in Creeds. I am also launching a new scent next Monday, Far NWest which is fir, caraway, skunk, mushrooms and a rubbery accord. It is all natural. Here's a review of Skin Graft put it in someone's perspective:Click here.

"Also my product is 100 percent natural" a definite plus. "I really don't believe Olivier Creed's claims of producing all natural products." that's strong words to one of the oldest perfumeries and perfuming family in the world. I met Erwin earlier this year and had dinner with him. We spoke in great detail about the ingredients in Creed's scents - the sources of the ingredients, the rarity and exclusiveness of them, the time spent waiting for batches, adding the ingredients at certain times (through out years on some), and etc. If I hadn't spent time with Erwin, I would have never known what it is too make such scents.

Maybe you already know, however JIC, Erolfa smells that way, because it's supposed to remind the wearer of the scent of being on their ship Erolfa. It too is one of my favorites, but I dislike its quick wear. Actually, I was surprised at some of the reasons for their scents. It seems from the review that you posted, you too are doing the same thing. You definitely have an interesting scent and its perspective.

My hat goes off to you for starting your own business. The world of doing it yourself is hard, It doesn't matter what you are selling. I see the value in having the balls to start something despite having people tell you not to do it. PROPS!!!! Once your business takes off smoke a cuban and have a bad russian beezy on your arm.

Yes my friend thank you...naysayers to me are motivators not fear mongers or downers. Listen, 7 years ago doctors told me i would never fully recover my sight, eat again, be much more than a glorified vegetable. I swim a mile a day, I drive and i was given a nose like a dog to make perfume and ears like an antelope...not sure why yet. Thanks for the props, man.

Oh wow that would be great to meet Erwin, the next generation, that said Creed cannot be 100 percent natural. If you look at the scent profiles of their perfumes you will find items like fruits in their top notes. Spring Water, which my gf really likes this time of year has peach, melon and apple top notes. It is impossible to extract perfume oils from most fruits due to the high water content of them. I make tinctures from freeze dried mangos and berries but it takes lots of finesse to make them smell like fresh fruit, to remove the freeze dry scent from the oil. I don't want to trash Creed and they do get trashed a lot and get loved a lot more and some of their scents are on my favorites list: Aventus is magic. Also what he said about when to make the juice is also revealing of a very knowledgeable production effort. The best times of year to make tinctures are around the summer and winter solstices.

Ok, so I received my bottles of REALOUD and Skin Graft. These are amazing. Very interesting fragrances that take me somewhere else, man... Oud is a new thing for me and I'm unsure if my friends could be around me when I wear it.. It's so different from anything we have in the west... yet when I smell it, it's so interesting that I enjoy it. Skin Graft is no problem to handle. It's a beautiful dream of a fragrance and I think it's awesome.

EDIT: I just had to edit... I am wearing Skin Graft right now, and when I smell my wrist, my eyes naturally close and i just imagine awesome stuff.

Thank you

Thanks Ian, you are exactly the kind of person I want wearing my scents. I understand the culture shock of oud. I have several suggestions as to how to learn to love oud...and once you do it is like loving Bentleys, which i do, but accessible even for a dude like me who has a kid about to enter college which now costs like 2 Bentleys. 1) Oud is great for layering, you can wear it as a base with other scents and create something totally incredible, I don't know what scents you usually wear but try just a wisp of oud and put something on top of it that you think might blend well. 2) Oud only grows better and softer with time. That bottle will only become mellower with age, like a Bordeaux, and not so high strung. Personally I like the oud fresh and sharp but aged oud is revered by connoisseurs. Skin Graft is a freak...I wanted to make a perfume that honored my own medical trauma in '07 when i suffered severe burns and pig skin grafts saved my life and ultimately left me with much younger looking skin than before...thanks so much, your enjoyment made my day.

Awesome, man. I love the story behind Skin Graft as well... Wanted to quickly reply here and let you know that my wife and her sister who is visiting here both love Skin Graft. They couldn't handle REALOUD at all but i wasn't surprised there. The oud thing will be an interesting journey. Thanks for the tips!
