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.

I am really impressed with the new attars. They are all well done. – Travis, USA
