the unmistakable aroma of modern-day Arabian incenses, particularly
Yemeni and Omani varieties, Baghdad is far richer

used to perfume the courts and chambers of Harun and Mamun.

others said about this product:
Although Lubani awakened
my interest in frankincense-based mukhallats, Agar Aura’s Baghdad
has made me a devotee. Its smokiness oozes with incense-laden resin;
hay mounds of saffron demure its peppery pungency; curls of silver
birch cool tobacco-laden sweetness, and drops of thick molasses coat
its dense, woody heart. Pine forests, a vetiver pillow, pummeled
leather, licorice spit, an orange blossom petal, guaicwood chimera,
ambery effulgence, molten labdanum, waving, swaying sandalwood.
Boswellia tree- please dry your tears and bask in my smiling applause.
am wearing Baghdad
today and it is very beautiful!
When I walked into the front room this morning, my girlfriend said "is
that Baghdad?" (I had told her I would wear the sample). I said, "you
could smell it before I came into the room?" She said "yes, I could
smell it as soon as you opened it!" I asked if she liked it and she
said she loves it.
This attar is amazing! I
love the smokiness of it. Reminds me of smoke from a high quality
sandalwood incense. It also has sort of a medicinal powdery scent to
it. Maybe a little hint of cedarwood. Either way, I am sitting here in
awe as I type, breathing in this fascinating scent! It's got a very
classic and classy character.
It is definitely
one of your best incense type attars and smells like a very high
quality incense. The agarwood smoke infusion is really nice and fits in
perfectly in the blend. Your attars are usually great, this is one of
I just adored baghdad.
The first 30-60 minutes are potent, rich in a good way. I also smell
some slight tobacco in the top notes. Then the first day it keeps on
drying down to nice floral/sandalwoody......and I really enjoyed the
dry down after 24 hours. Longevity is just awesome.
My brother, you have
KNOCKED THIS ONE INTO
OUTTER SPACE. EASILY, EASILY EASILY the best scent I have ever
experienced. I loved your Japanese material but have had a hard time
moving beyond the Khaltat 3rabiyya that you made a while back. This
blows it out of the water. I strongly urge you to write the recipe for
this down and release it periodically. If I didn't have two kids and a
lot of travel expenses I'd order a bucket from you. Anyhow, I just
wanted to let you know that your work is tremendous and highly
On application of Baghdad I was transported to a time long ago. But
also feel an aura of Royalty. This is what I envision a person of
Royalty would smell like past or present in the Middle East.
But while keeping the flame lit for a Mid East style classic
Mukhalat,it also smells a touch new also. On application it is sharp at
first. I smell Oud & Rose. After a few minutes it develops the
Sandalwood with a subtle just rite spiciness & sweetness. The
sweetness is kind of like Henna but just the rite amount of this
ingredient. Then the spiciness of incense Frankincense/Myrhh notes. All
these ingredients finally harmonize into the perfect Mukhallat. The
Sandalwood gets creamier and creamier as everything melds together. And
in the back is this incense smoke that is just delightful. This is a
fun ride from start to finish,which actually doesn't stop lol I smell
it over 26 hours later on my skin even after a shower. This is by far
the best Mukhallat I have smelled. Plus one of the longest lasting. If
you love Layali or Al Arabiya then this is seriously for you. The
blending is just gorgeous,Masterful. A work of art
This stuff is
bro!! Just as good actually better then a thought it would be. This is
something I can picture saudi royalty wearing!
believe Baghdad is very
different from anything I have purchased from you before. It definitely
reminds me of the middle east, and the frankincense note is just
amazing! What I really like about this is that I feel like I can wear
it for any occasion, a casual setting like going to the mall and also
my... I love Baghdad
