First of all, no. This does not contain a single drop
of actual Kinam extract (there would be extra zeros in the price
tag if that were the case).
But what this is, is the sublime sister to our most
popular Attar ever: Agar Attar.
This has been in the Agar Aura pipeline for a very long time and
took an incredible amount of trial and error to perfect.
Just as Agar Attar was an approximation of the 'universal oud'
scent in the form of a readily wearable and easily accessible
parfum, Kinam Attar is also an attempt at approximating a
certain scent. Except this time its not just agarwood, its the
finest agarwood... Kinam.
Alternative candidates for the name of this attar were "Poor
Man's Kinam" and "Special K" – so, you get the
A fusion of juxtaposed species of oud oils with opposing scent
profiles were carefully blended together to cancel out each
others' dominant geographical signature notes in order to
resemble the perfectly balanced aroma of Kinam. Crassna,
Gyriops, Malaccensis, Microcarpa,
and Sinesis oud oils were utilized, together with a
few other essential oils to act as bridges.
Don't expect a buzz, coz this ain't real Kinam.
But what you can definitely expect is skipping in circles with
joy, because the scent that this Attar achieved is not only
something you have dreamed of owning in an easily wearable oil,
but also something many would have gladly paid far more for.
wow! I know it's not "real" Kinam, but it gave me quite a
buzz. It's one of the most beautiful scents I've ever
many thanks for your work and generosity.
If it was a Japanese incense you were going for with Kinam
Attar, tell me which and I'll tell you if it's EXACTLY what
And if you WEREN'T going for an incense, but rather the wood
itself heated, then, well...this incense company apparently
nailed the scent as well. ??
What a beautiful composition! Would that we had the gift of
eloquence so that we could give just due to your
accomplishment. High-end Japanese incense in a bottle? The
accords that you artfully bring together in your
compositions are rich in their complexity, subtle in their
tonal colorations, and absolutely brilliant in their
aromatic soundings. It is a real delight to walk among
others accompanied by these gentle airs of fragrant
loveliness, and to share by our simple presence the
wonderful scents of your artisanal creation. Thank you.
Geez... really good job with this one ?
The kinam attar is really wonderful, its got to be my
favorite so far!, Im ordering a bottle, fantastic work!
Kinam is such a dynamic attar. I'm getting a lemony citrus,
a minty/menthol, a bit of jammy blueberry, and a touch of
ambergris, all with a nice low-end bass and an unmistakable
oud bring it all together. The range of notes is so wide.
There is so much more going on here.
