say this is a departure from the norm is an understatement. Hindi Brut
is so different from our usual Indian oud offerings that its probably
more appropriate to put it in a different category altogether.
from wild-harvested Indian agarwood, this
was distilled using the traditional Indian cooking method but with the
exception of ensuring that only
the pristine fractions of the oil were collected and that the
lower-grade fractions were avoided; something
that can't be said about typical traditional Indian oud oils.

are undoubtedly the key feature of this oil. Tawny leather envelops the
entire scent spectrum from beginning to end. Opening with a burst of
wood, leather, sweet hay, loam and dark chocolate, the
animalic notes tone down a little after an hour or so. Spices,
bittersweet almonds, burnt sugar and surprising (but subtle) fruity
notes surface. The drydown of this oil boasts the unmistakable aroma
that is the reason behind the existence of oud addicts.
Brut is not for the faint of heart. It is very similar to Hindi Qademe,
but 3x stronger. Its not recommended to be worn to
work, nor for a close gathering of friends (fellow oud addicts are an

If you get light-headed sniffing this oil, don't panic. Just sit back

others are saying about this product:
Every time I wear it I discover something new about its fragrance. I guess that's just my nose adjusting to the smell.
I also now understand and can smell the quality difference between
hindi brut and my other Hindis I had we talked about. After wearing it
yesterday it all became clear, the quality excelled and i could feel it
in the air all around me. Top quality Oud and was most definite the

really enjoyed it especially the leather scent, it's very strong, I
also brought back memories of an outdoor wood fire on a cold winters
day. After a short while picked up scent of wood burning. Great oud.
The Hindi Brut is magnificent, such a shocker.
stuff is awesome - a
great classic Hindi with a full blast of leather and loam that rumbles
on for hours. The funk is rich, clean and addictive. There is a hint of
the caramel that augments many of your Hindi oils of late, giving a
sweetness and deliciousness just under the surface. I've taken your
advice to stay away from other people when wearing this one, so am just
finding things to do at home - anointing myself with Hindi Brut and
strutting around like the king of funk! :)
The Hindi Brut is
amazing. When I first put it on, it was the first time I'd ever really
understood that some oils are best not worn among the general public -
it almost growled, haha. I took it as a sign of amazing things to come,
and I was not disappointed. It developed into a rich, chocolatey, and
deep headspace that I will enjoy exploring further. Interestingly, at
the end it became dry and almost bitterly earthy. Truly unique in my

Bro it is amazing. It lasts on cloth for days and it's notes are all in
the right places.
beaucoup apprécié Hindi Brut, mais il est vrai
l'entourage, il n'est pas cool ;). Attendre au moins 1 heure, avant
qu'il ne devienne plus docile. C'est effectivement un oud à
apprécier en solitaire, du moins pour les notes de
Merci pour ces plaisirs olfactifs !
have the Brut
on now. I am officially a hoarder. Don't want to run out of this.
