found beyond my expectations and would not miss the
opportunity of getting it. It is so complex and , in a
simply word GOOD . It really seems to include and harmonize
all the good scents one know, giving a full perception of
peace and satisfaction.
king koh kong kicks major ass and may be my favorite.
the bat, King Koh Kong is a quality oil. That is
evident even when one applies micro swipes from the sample
vial. I imagine that this is what the raw (un-heated)
wood smells like. It's starts off strong, but not
overpowering. It's very woody and dry (similar to
Vietnamese) with absolutely no off notes. It's what I
would call smooth. The oil evolves over time and ends
up with a slight sweetness. This quality was enough to
justify a full bottle purchase, without question.
It wasn't until I received the full bottle that I realized
just how amazing this oil is. No, it's not because of
the cool crystal bottle! Lol! I applied what I
consider a full wearing. A full swipe on each wrist
and then dabbed it on my beard and arms. The opening
was the same as when I sampled it, more intense with the
amount applied. 10-15 minutes into wearing it, I was
hit with an olfactory deja vu that I have never experienced
before. I couldn't understand where I had smelled this
aroma before, but then it hit me. The full wearing
re-created the same aroma that I experienced when I heated
the chip (Agar Aura style) that you included with my
bottle! I confirmed this when I went home and heated
another small piece. You truly re-created what you
were after since the beginning. The only thing is that
you must do a full wearing in order to experience
this. The aroma has to hit you from all angles and
distances to re-create the aroma of the heated chips.
Finally, the end of the life of this oil is actually
semi-sweet as the heart of the oil is dominated by the
sweetness that is found in the heated chip aroma. This
sort of relegates the sweetness at the end to a bitter sweet
since you just experienced a true intense sweetness.
Hands down, a masterpiece that fully reveals itself with a
proper full wearing.
Cambodi. Deep, dark red fruits. Slightly medicinal. Lasts
forever. Decent projection. Well worth the $750/3g price
superbe , de qualité , qui n'est en aucune façon offensive
et qui effectivement , se développe progressivement sur la
peau. L'odeur n'est pas entêtante , mais dure longtemps.
D'une grande douceur , en même temps chaude. Des fruits ,
style dates ou pruneaux séchés , oui , c'est ce que je
pourrai d'écrire aussi.Par contre , je ne parviens pas
identifier les notes de tabac pipe. (Mais peut-être évoquais
-tu un tabac plus proche de celui que l'on utilise pour le
narguilé ?) C'est peut être bizarre , mais en portant kkk,
j'ai eu en mémoire Oud Darussalam , mais en beaucoup plus
doux et confortable...
Précision : en ce moment , il fait très chaud et l'huile est
tout fait confortable , donc portable tout moment de
one of the best oils that I have sampled to date. Probably
the best or right up there with another oil crafted from
Vietnamese agar wood. Very woody, dry, and slightly spicy.
It definitely changes over time on your skin and gets
slightly sweet. I can definitely smell the high
quality. My first Koh Kong Oud.
silky smooth and dark, gone are the usual sweet-fruity
Cambodi "like me" notes. Dark and slow opening of the high
quality oils, the antipode to the ones with vaporous top
This oil is very elegant, and subdued in character, that's
what makes it attractive. One needs peace of mind to
appreciate it, and feels emotionally grounding.
The sweetness is of the uplifting, expansive and airy kind.
spicy and herbal notes are fully integrated into the
background. This oil is mostly resin and incense. that juicy
basenote is not exactly tobacco, but similar in register,
deep. Is it fruity? only in an abstract way. And another
great thing about KKK is the drydown, never goes bitter or
grassy, but finishes almost where it started. It would be
nice to have more agarwoody Cambodi oils like this one.
can't believe how much my experience of it has developed...
I liked it from the first sniff, but ..it almost feels like
a transformed oil where the complexity is more discernible.
Like at first it was just hands down a nice smelling Cambodi
oil. But ..like I said the whole experience of smelling the
oil has become on a different level because I can pick up
notes and nuances that were almost ghayb to me before haha
scent belongs in a different league on its own. So old
school takes me back to the 80's in the masjid & old
Arab guy is giving attar, the whole masjid smelled like the
King Koh Kong classic scent that's beautiful, all I
can say is this is a journey In a bottle, JazakAllah Taha
for releasing this Gem in a bottle.
kohkong king is stellar!
King Koh Kong definitely has depth and presence. For
some reason, it seems to have an "island" feel to it. Is the
area where the wood originated near salt water or was it
from the "mainland?" I was lucky to get a drop
(literally) of your Oud KK from a friend. Wasn't
sure if it was available to order. It was less intense
than the King Koh Kong and a little sweeter, I think..A drop
doesn't quite have the impact as a .15 ml sample does. I
know that it was exceptional and lasted 4 hours or so.
The King Koh Kong lasted a lot longer...Probably, a day,
Tried the KKK and the SamRosa on...to compare. The
SamRosa is definitely softer and almost floral
fragrant with a slight spicy touch to its "woody"
I've started to learn to appreciate the burning/heating of
agarwood, and this smells just like scented smoke. I must be
imagining it, but inhaling this even feels like smoke to the
nose and throat, that little bit of irritation from inhaling
the burning resin/wood, but with it smelling so good. After
an hour, the scent profile has begun to turn to green (also
nice), but still having that smoky aura... I am not sure how
you captured the heated chips aroma quite in this way, but
sweet and fruity but deep resinous instead, almost spicy or
bitter. interesting to note how the profile shifts with more
resin in wood.
King Koh Kong is a journey in a bottle , so many interesting
nuances , but the dry down is the best, super spicy, it's a
true benchmark for the scent profile, no other distiller hit
that profile… hands down you take the cake for true Cambodi
, hope you can create more gems like that oil…
like your Cambodi, you captured a scent that gave me
memories from the 80's, the only person that came close to
the King Koh Kong scent profile was an old Guy from BD who
had a stash of oils from the 90's, I got a Cambodi from him
that comes close to it, but with deeper earthy notes with
intense animalic notes, but your oils has longer
am really enjoying KKK - It’s a great oud and exactly what i
was expecting in terms of scent.
I get that rich intense fruity oudy smell.
It is defiantly my favorite Cambodi so far!
King I am still figuring out. So powerful but so sweet.
me start by saying I am not a Cambodia fan. They just don't
seem to have enough bass. I never really feel they are oud
enough. I just received the samples and have only just
smelled the stick of king Koh Kong it is amazing It has the
depth and richness of a Malaysian oud but with the Koh Kong
profile. This is truly a work of art. Now I have to save up
for a bottle.
