The opening is a smoke grenade of dark Sumatran and earthy-incense high-altitude Maroke oud.
To capture a ‘smokey’ tone, perfumers typically go for birch tar, burnt frankincense, or the like. Of course, ‘smokey’ here doesn’t = incense chords or heavy oudy notes.
That’s why in those compositions, tar and acrid burnt notes dominate, and it's why you’d inevitably fail to find a true smokey attar, where smokey = resinous incense vapor. Why you’d always end up with an echo of ash instead of deliciously heated agarwood chips.
Black Changho doesn’t smell of ash or burnt-black gum. Instead, walls of resinous incense waft around you courtesy of the noir selection of ouds, steeped in vintage Timor sandalwood, finished with a splash of patchouli to compliment the earthy drydown. And that’s it.

Been spending a lot of time with black Chango. The name and description had me and I think price per gram wise it’s one of the best things you have and that’s saying something as I have a few Ensar oils. Other attars I’ve smelt from other brands have turbo charged the smoke too much, so it’s like burning tires with no depth and man made smelling. This Is layered, dark, natural, complex, clever smoky, just really really good. Now need to spend more time with the other oils, I find I have to wear them a lot to really understand them which is what I enjoy, lots of nuances! – Simon, Australia
This is the one that I have been waiting for.
Cement after the rain, the smell of lightning and far off thunder. The tender and mysterious old book/old shelf smell that is so good you'd want to include it on a space probe for extraterrestrials to find someday – so that they could know something about the feeling of sehnsucht and longing. Well – you can tell that I like this one can't you?
I smell the Maroke. I smell the (almost green somehow) sandal. The patchouli is there with you for a while with the Maroke, then runs to the sandal... And once you find it with the sandal it runs back to the Maroke! It also has a bit of a baked earth mitti scent in there.
For me, and I mean it, this is perfect. It reminds me of the past, but at the same time has something new and optimistic. Not optimistic in the big smile way, but in the connection-with-the-mystery way. The best way. A reminder of the mystery of life is exactly what I needed right now. A true blessing!
BC reminds me of the thrill I got the first time I smelled oud oil. What a great attar. I haven't even lit up the chips yet!! Congrats to you and the team. – Matt, USA
I am really impressed with the new attars. They are all well done. – Travis, USA
