KYARA TO BYAKUDAN
successor to two of Agar Aura's most popular attars ever, Kyara To Byakudan combines the best
of what Jinkoh To Byakudan and Kyoto
had to offer.
and sandalwood in a Japanese incense mix are a match made in
heaven. But if you've tried layering agarwood and sandalwood oils together, you'll realize its
not an easy task to make the blend smell good.
Our Jinkoh To Byakudan (Japanese for 'agarwood and sandalwood') was an
exception to the rule, featuring copious amounts of oud and sandalwood
Kyara To Byakudan takes it to the next
Here you have wild Crassna
agarwood and small-leaf Santalum
sandalwood oils, spiked with the enfleuraged smoke of vintage 'old
mountain' (Mysore) sandalwood. And to top it off,
the enfleuraged smoke of genuine Japanese-certified sinking-grade
this has got to be good.
If you have handled glutinous
sinking-grade green-oil kyara before, you know that its aroma is so
rich and potent that just by touching or smelling it, the
aroma will be stuck in your nose and on your fingers for hours.
Had this not been an unusual quality that high grade kyara possesses,
it would have
been impossible to compose this blend within a feasible budget, as it
would have required over ten times the quantity of kyara that was used
Like its predecessor Jinkoh To Byakudan,
this attar has an equally-balanced emphasis on the agarwood and
sandalwood notes, neither one dominating the other all the way to the
are proud to offer the very first perfume oil in the world that
contains the extract of genuine kyara, certified by one of the five
leading incense companies in Japan.
Potent yet smooth, dignified and refined
- Kyara To Byakudan is Agar
Aura's finest Smoke Infusion
there are NO smoke 'emulators' in Kyara to Byakudan (amber fossil
resin, birch tar, cade, etc.). The smokiness is purely from the
smoke enfleurage and the oud & sandalwood base note fractions.
What others said about this product:
absolutely love it. Your Japan-inspired attars were all great but this
one could be the best. Besides the heavenly scent, this oil has the
ability to put me in an euphoric state, an effect that I have
experienced only a very few times before.
To Byakudan is very beautiful. I love how it has a light yet refined
smokiness. It is a very relaxing creamy-sweet and woody scent. I find
it to be exceptionally close to the scent of burning high end Japanese
incense....which I'm a huge fan of. In my beard the scent lasts all
day. Truly a worthy addition to my aromatic collection!
the package and I must admit that the oil is an absolute bliss. The
initial blast of agarwood is awesome and then it turns super green.
After few minutes Oudh starts coming again. Truly love it and balance
between sandalwood and agarwood.
Yes, I like it a lot!
Just can't stop wearing it! I'm slowing my breath when inhaling it to catch more and more nuances and it amazes me every time.
Really nice. The smokey notes from the enfleurage are amazing! Sweet, spicy, incense in a bottle.
Applying a swipe of KtB and the driving with the window open seems to
'activate' the Kyara in the blend... I was out and about the other day
and as I was driving caught a whiff of Kyara from what I thought was
the countryside... I thought wow that smells like Kyara then realised
it was the KtB!
The Kyara To Byakudan is wonderful. Knew immediately that I would order a bottle of it when I smelled it.
ve applied a small swipe of JtB and KtB on opposite arms on 3 separate
occasions for evaluation. I find the opening of the 2 very
different. KtB opens for the most part with a very 'green'
sandalwood scent, green in the sense of vibrant and of the forest. I
say most part as one time I didnt get the opening of sandalwood only
oud with the sandalwood coming in later.
JtB opens with a sweeter buttery sandalwood..softer with a more
feminine profile. After about an hour I found the sandalwood in KtB
slowly give way to the oud, with the forest vibrancy give way to a
darker profile. Like morning giving way to evening, night. Then I
started to notice the subtle smoke and kyara scent. I burnt a stick of
Kohgens excellent Kyara incense to liken the 2...unmistakeable and a
discernable difference in the 2 oils. The sweetness in KtB comes in
about this time melding with the oud smoke and kyara...nicely tempering
it so it's subtle and not over bearing sweetness. As a personality its
more complex, revealing many facets as opposed to JtB which now after
several comparisons seems rather more montone in its presentation.
Need to spend a lot more time with it...in summary so far I've found
their like non identical twins...they share a common DNA but how they
present is very different. JtB is definately the more feminine of the
two to my sensibilities...KtB more masculine and ultimately a more
complex personality...a triumph of alchemy Taha! Brilliant...
Kyara to byakudan is one jewels of mixture and balance, really magnificent, brother Taha you are an expert in the field.
The oud and sandalwood complement each other beautifully! Very well crafted...just like a high end Japanese incense!
So far it's reminding me
very much of high-end Japanese incense. Sitting on the subway now &
getting subtle hits of sandalwood & star anise. :)
Man, I've really come to
love this blend! Yes, it is smoky, but it is also silky, yet crisply
defined, like "liquid incense", Japanese style. Wait, did I just
re-define the concept of your attar? Ha, I totally did! Not
intentionally though :). Well I guess you must have succeeded with what
you had set out to do…
