Do you remember the first time
you smelled oud?
Whether it was a low quality oil or a high quality one, what's certain
is that it smelled exotic and
like nothing you've experienced before.
is going to make you relive that experience, all over.
Extracted from fantastic resinated
agarwood chips from the northern-most
part of Papua, Manokwari, this is our first
ever oud oil of the Gyrinops
species from this island. We have released several Papuan ouds of the Aquilaria Filaria species before
from the South Papua region of Merauke, but never an oud from this
region or species.
If the scent description of 'gently
heated agarwood chips' is getting old, you'll be glad to know that this
oil smells like agarwood chips heated full
blast - minus any acrid smoky notes. It is unapologetically
bold and explosive, and yet refined and smooth. In that sense, there is
only one other oil we have ever produced of this category, the
Bark peeled off a young twig. Green camphoraceous notes in the opening
notes that will take over your senses. A beautiful pine-like resinous
quality very much like the aroma hanging in the air as you walk through
a Pacific North-West Canadian forest. Ripe guava, sweet basil, dry
green tea leaves. Green honey... green
honey? You bet! Imagine if
Manuka honey tasted 'green' and that's exactly what the heart notes of
this oil are like, sprinkled with a healthy dose of green cinnamon.
Everything about this oil, except the color, is an ode to green.
And it is identical, and I mean i-d-e-n-t-i-c-a-l
to the aroma of furiously bubbling Papuan Gyrinops agarwood chips.
As mentioned above, this oil is of a
unique category/genre with only one other peer, Pencerahan. The whole
point is unleashing the richest, most beautiful, and most accurate
aromatic replication of the
oleoresin. Nothing more, nothing less.
But what's perhaps most fascinating is
that unlike most Papua Gyrinops oud oils which turn sour or bitter as
they develop on your skin, Jumanten only gets greener and sweeter - to
the point where the drydown literally smells like a beautiful Fougère
perfume composition. I kid you not.
And this of course is because of our unique way of doing things: doing
a mini trial distillation run first to determine the most salient
features, and then design the full-scale distillation process to
produce the best possible aroma.
We ended up getting 1.5 times more oil
in this batch, and you know what that means right? Besides a richer
aroma, a higher yield = lower cost per gram for us, and therefore lower
price for you.
Those of you who I informed that this oil would be $450/bottle will be
pleased to see its for much less now. And I knocked off an additional
$5 to match the price of Kecantikan - another oil that
was 'too good to be true' for the price, and
incidentally crafted by the same distiller.
Kecantikan got sold out very quickly, so take heed O ye who reflect.
others said about this product:
is interesting for sure. If I would have blind sampled it I would have
guessed Bornean. It has that sweet hay note and wetness that I get in a
good Bornean. Very sweet and green. Like advertised it just gets
sweeter and sweeter into the dry down. Being a lover of all natural
fougeres..this oud defiantly reminds me of the beauty of that fern like
composition! Very lovely oud for the price!
oil...wearing it today for the first time...incredible...
received the oils today. I am very happy with Jumanten. What
makes it even better is that I have a few grams of incredible sinking
grade Papuan Grynops chips to go with it. I do find allot of
similarties between Ketenangan and Jumanten. I do not regret
purchasing a bottle blind. Of coarse I have not smelled one of your
oils I would not be happy owning a bottle of.
my friend, are a devil! Stop sending the most lovely ouds to my door.
It's not nice. You know this is a long lasting pretty that can not be
resisted by normal humans. Just kidding
amazing! I have some papuan gyrinops wood at home that I've been
burning in anticipation of this oil and i have to say that you nailed
this. Green is by far the best descriptor. The grassy, woody hay like
notes mixed in with some vanilla smells so much like the burning wood
without smoke it's incredible. This is my new favorite, and i own
berkilau, which actually still is my favorite but i haven't exactly
been frugal with it and therefore the bit i have left sits and taunts
me from my perfume chest. Jumanten also has a slightly wet smell
to it that i absolutely love. Reminds me a bit of minorien's fu-in
am also absolutely in love with Jumanten! It is the first Papua oud
where I actually get a honey note. This is so green and fresh, none of
the dirt/peanut smell I sometimes get with Borneos or the mudiness from
Papuas or Marokes. Amazing!!!! Plus the price makes it a no-brainer for
One of those rare time where I can totally relate to an oud description
Reçu ma commande aujourd'hui et essayé Jumanten cet après-midi. Il fait
très chaud sur toute la France , c'est la canicule et Jumanten se prête
parfaitement à cette chaleur !
Très belle huile , proche
en effet de Pencerahan et effectivement , une
ode au vert . Un vert émeraude , je dirais ;) . J'aime beaucoup.
Jumanten was a surprise,
very aggreable oil, with the same mood of odour profile that started
The dry down is where it
becomes like the Papuan, NG smoldering chip on the distant coal. Salty,
Camphor-y, green symphony.
Masha Allah ya Taha, well
I was sitting here
thinking about the similarity between your Zummrud Oil and Jumanten so
I looked up what Jumanten means and voila "Emerald or Zummrud" in
Indonescian :) it's that green vein that runs in both of them.
Boasting some woody
Borneo notes with features which unmistakably distinguish it from a
typical Borneo Oud. Yes…it is the ‘Gyrinops’ factor. This one to me
appears to hit the green spectrum with a more rugged force compared to
Ketenangan which is maybe more on the woodier/yellow side. As I
sit with it I cant help but appreciate the development of the scent
itself, this is not a one dimensional oud and the ‘green’ notes almost
have a continuum within itself which makes it impossible to get bored
with this fragrance. This oil is really great for the price….I only
wish I had the opportunity to try some of this Papau wood on my burner
to better appreciate its relation.
