The oud-rose combo is just about the
most common pair used in perfumes that contain oud.
But when it comes to western 'oud' perfumes, virtually all of them use
synthetic oud. In Arabian oud-based mukhallats, real oud might be used
but as a general rule, the lowest grades of oud are used. Then there's
the addition of synthetic musks, Iso E Super, and other aromachemicals
- which is standard, in both traditions.
But what do you get when you blend the
finest all-natural ingredients into an oud-rose combo? You get Layali.
The deepest Indian oud you can imagine
together with a fine wild-crafted Cambodian oud were carefully blended
to accentuate deep tobacco and dark leather accents, giving Layali a
posh gentlemen's club vibe. You can almost picture the tufted dark
leather sofas, and teakwood cigar boxes sitting on top of dark mahogany
One of the most difficult essential oils to work with,
Davana, was meticulously fused with the ouds to produce a delectable
plum and red wine aroma - a note so addictive that you'll find it hard
to keep your wrist away from your nose.
There's no musk of any kind (natural or synthetic) in Layali, another
reason why it smells very different from all other oud-rose perfumes.
The blend is embellished with crisp Bulgarian rose. The union is so
seamless and perfect in every way that it completely redefines the

What customers said about this product:
Very interesting man, feels on par with the experience of cordoba... Deep, dark and intriguing
Layali is what a man should smell like. Incredible leather, tobacco,
plums. Like drinking fine red wine in, how you say, a posh gentleman's
club. How did you achieve that leather note?! It's perfect.
an exquisitely blended, voluptuous scent. Layali is rich, plush &
understated. It puts me in mind of VT, but I like it a whole lot more.
Opulent is the perfect descriptor for this beautiful scent. So very
I am very, very happy with this one Taha! Just exquisite.
And I can't thank you enough for that sample of the Dento so that
I could experience that. Very thoughtful. As always, it has
been a true pleasure doing buisiness again.
a beautiful fragrance and I'm thinking the roses and davana really
paired with with the fruity notes in the Cambodian. Funny, I'm so used
to florals coming out in the front but it really came out later - it
was like wearing two different mukhallats, the first one playing more
on the rustic of the Indian ouds.
Layali is very nice indeed. Leathery and woody. It suprised me though.
When you said oud-rose combo, somehow I was envisioning something more
floral but as you stated in your description, this is a mukhallat for
gentlemen. It's so smooth, blended so well...
I really enjoyed the lively quality of the opening notes of this
oud. It smells like oud, but possibly the Davana is the airy
essence that catches my nose. This oil is quite acrobatic in its
scent behavior while still having a nice oud presence underneath.
A fine composition. Mukhallats may be your special "super power".
