There seem to be many new vendors hitting the scene and many, such as myself will dabble in them, but to be honest the only one I have been consistent with is EO and I guess thats probably the case for many.
I have tried quite a variety of samples, from you, from […], from […], from […], and from […]. I will maintain, at this time, that Ensar Oud offers the best oud!
I have pragmatic reasons for preferring your stuff over other artisan distillers’. Mainly, either their oils are lacking depth or in […]’s case there is an overwhelming number of notes because he makes sure he gets literally every last drop out of the wood.
Thank you to all of you at Ensar Oud for improving my life through fragrance.
I secretly, now publicly, call you Enzo. As in Enzo Ferrari. You are the Enzo Ferrari of the artisan oud producing world. All are exotic, fast, beautiful, robust and meticulously engineered. Keep doing what you do.
I have recently had the chance to smell some of the offerings from other ‘artisanal oud’ vendors, and they are all so flat, lacking any initial oomph. The scents are slightly unpleasant or confused and they have very little projection or depth. Your dedication to this sacred art and your ability to unlock the magic of Oud is second to none.
Thank you for offering your ouds at reasonable prices. I have spent more on a few elsewhere and they are nowhere near your quality and now I know to buy Ensar Oud and I will always be satisfied. I’d buy every one if I could.
I can’t tell you what a joy it is to work with Ensar. I can’t say they same for others who say they do the same as you guys, had a terrible experience with another “Artisanal Oud” company earlier. Learned my lesson. Ensar Oud or bust!
I have used Ouds from many providers but Ensar Oud 's Products are best Ouds i have used so far. They are Thick and very very pure and smells awesome even after many many hours. Even i have washed my hands after applying Ensar Oud Product the smell was there even after 10 hours. I am in love with Ensar Oud :) They are best.
There are things in the world that are hard to describe in words. Oud from Ensar is one of these things! I tried the 70s Mysore Chips, Santal and Aceh Chips. The burner they sell is top quality. If you want to create a relaxing atmosphere in your house, use Ensar Oud. Adam will personally e mail you and make sure you are happy with your purchase. JazakAllah Khair brother Adam. I will be placing new orders so looking for some discounts! Masalam.
These oils are amazing! The internet is full of fakes. Thank god I was told about this website from a person I know when I asked him if he knew where I could get real sandalwood oil, he told me about Ensar Oud. So if I ever need to get oils. I know I won’t get ripped off.
I just wanted to write a thank you! My journey in oud began a few years ago and I’ve certainly smelled some amazing oils (as well as a few that were simply awful). You are without a doubt the best of the best. You are the only name I currently trust in oud sales and every penny spent on one of your distillations has been 100% worth it! I actually found you by chance while searching for quality sandalwood oil (I’ve purchased 3 bottles of your Mysore 1984) but never imagined how my passion would develop into oud. Thank you for constantly sending small samples with my purchases and thank you for your continued passion in this field. I’m continually learning and admiring and saving bits of money so that I can continue to expand my collection. These are the most delectable and transformative oils, unlike any others I’m aware of. I’m so grateful to have come across this site. Thank you for all that you do.
I was just browsing the blog and checking out Ensar's other ouds. So much to sample! Hoping to place another order next month. I was giddy like a kid on Christmas anticipating the arrival of my oud resin and samples. I'm currently tincturing the oud resin at 10% in 190 proof organic cane spirits. It smells...oud-y. Not in an oil-y, silky, sort of way like the oils, but a very deep and rich resin scent that is very Oud. It's amazing. I'm not exactly sure how much time it needs to "marinate," but I'll keep checking it and shaking it everyday for the next month or two and see how it goes.
I'm still experiencing and taking in the samples. I've worked with oud before. The usual barnyard-y ouds and real oud in high end niche perfumes. Very rarely is it done right. I have a couple perfumes that really hit it off with the oud. But this oud. This is Oud done right. I have samples of People's Ceylon, Oud Yusuf, Suriranka Naya, Borneo Zen, and Santal Sultan. I'll have to provide a more complete review once I have more time to sit with them. But wow. They are absolutely magical. Just gorgeous. As a longtime "fraghead" and niche perfume connoisseur, I've tried, purchased and collected many varieties of niche, indie and natural perfumes. Several have wow'd me and were bottle worthy, even at $400-600 a bottle. I've had several bespoke perfumes created by well-known indie and niche perfumers (currently at the end of a bespoke project now.)
I've loved those creations. I treasure them.
As a student of natural perfumery I've had the opportunity to work with very costly materials. Three years into my studies, while working on preliminary blends for my [hopefully] future indie brand, and I grow more curious about oud and using it in my blends. I'm currently tincturing oud wood and was on the lookout for more resin-dense oud chips and came upon Ensar's oud resin. I had an immediate "I must try this" reaction. And then I ordered samples of Ensar's artisanal oud. Then I sampled these highly reviewed oud oils, and upon first swipe, everything I thought I knew about oud oil changed in an instant. I was immediately enthralled and mesmerized. These oils are simply stunning, magical and ethereal. I couldn't stop sniffing, and the oils evolved and morphed on my skin and I couldn't get enough. There's something truly special about such a wood that has spiritual significance in several cultures. I've worked with amazing and wonderful materials and have a great collection of high end niche and bespoke perfumes. But artisanal oud is something else entirely. It definitely deserves a spot in my collection. Within a few days of receiving my samples, I ended up ordering a few more from Luckyscent (I order from them very regularly). I'm eagerly awaiting those samples. I'll be sure to write a review for each in the coming days.
Sometimes one can smell rose / sandalwood and un-named fragrances even when there is none present because of angelic presence. These fragrances are far far more beautiful than ones we normally encounter in real life. Because I've experienced them, I feel Ensar Ouds are the most divine fragrance money can buy.
This is not the first time I receive Oud from you. Thank you for included some free samples. My experience with Ensar was so wonderful, beyond words can described. Thank you for all the hard work that you put into creating such beautiful Oud oils. Ensar Oud is top of the line and it is the best Oud in the world. The Oud I can trust and enjoy is Ensar Oud only. God Bless!
I still remember my first whiff of the oils. I smelled the People's Ceylon right out of the box and it almost stung me (in a good way) due to the concentration and strength of the oil. Its the first time I felt like I was smelling something with more than just my nose, but my lungs, windpipe, and most importantly my heart as well. I know understand why oud is so widely used in majlis's. I felt as if ibadat done using the oud went to the heart much quicker, and with ease. People's Ceylon and Oud Yusuf are extremely beautiful smells. I think Oud Yusuf may be one of the most beautiful things I've ever smelled. I understand why it's named Yusuf. I plan on purchasing at least 3ml of this in the future insha Allah. Tigerwood Royale and Assam Wilde however, define for me at least what Oud is. Tigerwood Royale lives up to its name for me as well, as its the most royal of the four. It seems suited for a king. An ASAQ actually opened in Toronto a week before I recieved your ouds. I tested Kalakassi which, though not super similar to the tigerwood, is also a very royal smell. However I feel the spiritual aspect of oud, and the punch that oud has is missing. Its a beautiful smell but the pure oud blows me away. It was a good opportunity for me to compare and understand what pure oud is. Assam Wilde is my favourite. This one taught me the beauty of real oud. I went to India about five years ago and purchased Dehnal oud from a common shop. Assam Wilde gave me an almost exact same initial barn smell, which took me right back to that oud. However Assam Wilde's barn smell melted and revealed and extremely beautiful fragrance behind it, and that is what shocked me. The barn had a beauty of its own, but the way it changes was a unique experience.
As you may imagine I'm looking at the calendar every day going 'is it time yet? is it time yet?'!!! ;) I am so excited about receiving these! Yes, it appears I have expensive taste AND it also appears that you guys are able to satiate that taste! ;) I have a few more that I really want to purchase: People's Ceylon, Surinanka Naya, and Hainan 2005; and then I really want the Kinam Rouge or Borneo 50K or may I even dare say Purple Kinam!!!! SOOOOOOOO in love with all of these! Also, I LOVE reading the texts about the oils. They take me on a journey through jungles and temples as I read! Thank you for that! Do you ever take people on journey/retreats while you are searching for oud? If so, I'd be interested someday!!!! ;) I've been a plant lover, student, and enthusiast for 20 years; playing with local plants, as well as dried from afar and essential oils! Even though that's not where my life has me planned for staying - business wise - I still LOVE to be with them and to learn from them everywhere I go! With DeLight of Agarwood and Gratitude for YOU.
Thank you for the email and the extra little gift. In reply to your questions, I have an interest in natural perfumery and have been studying it for a year or so as a hobbyist. I learnt about Ensar Oud a few months ago while looking for oud oils. I came to appreciate the presentation of the website and products at Ensar was completely different to other sellers - Ensar's product descriptions invite me into a sense of romance and storytelling. After becoming interested in the Ensar brand, I came across a review on Kafkaesque with six reviews of Ensar ouds which detailed their different aroma profiles in a way that I could relate to and understand. Two of them seemed to be of particular interest to me: Hainan 2005 and Green Papua. Both of my parents are from Papua New Guinea and I collect melanesian antique carvings and furniture so my fascination with my melanesian heritage got the better of me, and I bought Green Papua as my first purchase.
I am not sure I have the adequate vocabulary or experience to describe fine ouds, but I will try to articulate my first impressions. The Green Papua feels alive - like it is still talking to the the other trees in the forest it came from! It has a thickness that really grows when it is uncapped. It is more woody than other ouds I have experienced, but also has a more fresh, sharper camphoraceous and minty side to it. I am obsessed with it. Raw Resin is so luxurious and decadent - like a dark cherry syrup and carob candy. Oud Yusuf sample - I find it to be whiskey-like and it has a prettiness. Somehow, burning a chip of Archi Exclusive reminds me of cooking marshmallows over a camp fire. All in all, I think that the Ensar Oud brand has lived up to the romance it promises. And from the Green Papua and the Oud Yusuf sample, I can smell that the Ensar Ouds are in a completely different ball game to other ouds on the market.
I received my package a day earlier than scheduled! I was like a kid on holiday morning. Sooooo excited. I handled the bottles as if they were delicate mystical creatures. They are truly treasures. Kyara is truly astounding. If I wasn't done having children, and if I were to have another daughter, I'd just might name her Kyara. It's just that beautiful and transcendent. I need more time to process it, along with Royal Guallam, which is just transfixing. They are all treasures and I feel so lucky to own them. I actually checked the website numerous times a day before purchasing because I was hoping they'd still be in stock. I also purchased Borneo Zen from Luckyscent since you're out and I wanted to make sure I got a bottle, along with Oud Yusuf, and though it isn't on the same level as the masterpieces, it is very beautiful. I'm actually creating a small work space area for my perfuming and purchased a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind wood keepsake box for my beautiful oud treasures. Best regards.
Thank you so much for the extra samples you included, they really helped give an idea of your other oils. I really liked Komrad K. Finally, a real Cambodi that isn't cut with additives. It has a lovely 'oudiness' to it, and strangely has a cool to it when you breathe it in (mint/menthol?). Santal Royale is similar to Mysore 1984, but a more complex ring to it. I can't put my finger (nose?) on it, but it has something else that brings back memories of my relatives perfumes when I was younger. It's also very refreshing, mashallah.
Hainan 2005, WOW! What can I say? It obviously has an oud profile, but I have never experienced Chinese ouds. It's so refreshing and uplifting, and reminds me of a majlis or diwaniya. Oud Zachariyya is one of my favourites. It's beautiful and has notes of sweet tobacco, blue cheese (in a good way!), and honey. A strange description but I love it! Oud Royale is very green/minty/sandaly and has a very nice cooling effect, a bit like what you get from mint gum. Like the olfactory version of joy. Sultan Musk Attar was a punch to the nose. Such a fruity, tropical attar. The opening smells just like guava fruit and a mix of different fruits (watermelon, berries, citrus, etc. etc.). But the drydown was something else, turned into a very musky smell that reminds me of powdered musk (the real stuff that costs like +200$ for 1g) and was amazing to observe the change in its notes. Jazakum Allah khair for your products, I really appreciate not only your effort and work, but also your kindness and sincerity with your customers. Many, many thanks
Dear Ensar Oud Team. i was recently in Abu Dhabi. And was totally bewitched by the fragrances the men were wearing. I just wanted to follow them around the whole shopping mall, smelling this incredible smell. I found two shops in the mall selling Arabic perfumes (one shop was called "Swiss Arabian" and I think the other was called "Arabian Oud"). I didn't find anything similar. Whilst flying back home I was talking to one of the air stewards, who said the fragrance these men wear are not generally bough from shopping malls, and gave me your website.
I knew I should have called you all up! I was looking for oud in Dubai, which was fun. Didn't find anything close to the notes from EO, but had a good time talking with some of the perfumers. Experiencing the oud scene in a mall has helped me appreciate how special the oils from EO are. I DO remember Aku Akira. I had a sample of that one and loved it. I remember it as chocolaty and earthy. I also had a small sample of Muana Supreme. That one I remember as bright and clear, a sunrise oud if I remember correctly. Haven't tried anything from Bhutan! It's been rewarding to own a collection of oud oil. Each oil is tied in memory to the season that I first wore it, so the collection can be a time machine. Each oil puts my mind in a different place, and now that I've lived with the oils for a while, I'm able to create all sorts of moods. There are definitely some oils that I wear more than others, but it isn't necessarily because I like them more than others. It's because I don't want to dilute the memories and feelings associated with it by wearing it too often. I do have favorites though. Maroke Muah, Kyara Sayang, and Kaliman Kala are the ones that are the most special to me.
I can't imagine being able to get this collection of Ouds from anywhere but Ensar. Not only do they show both an unparalleled level of skill and supreme quality of wood, but they are so remarkably complex and sophisticated and potent. A hundred Bravos just isn't enough! I am very deeply grateful to Ensar Oud for everything he does.
Right now when I am writing this reply I am in a different world, I don't know how I can express this to you.
I feel as if your parfum carried me to the connection I have with my creator or I just whiffed my whole 34 years of existence in one breath. This to me was rehash of my life till date.
Jazakallah Khair for this experience and I wish I will be able to meet you in person some time.
I tried oud oils and I oudimmediately fell in love with the oud smell even though I am an oud apprentice only. This year I tried Ensar’s oud. There is something more in it than meets the eye. The substance is living. I knew many oud fragrances where oud is merely additive, humbly, half-hearted, sunken in artificial odour. But Ensar’s oud is a different story. The oud is alive and kicking. It whispers, sings and even roars sometimes. And I am on this fascinating journey and learning to listen to it. Thanks Ensar for these heavenly gifts he brought us through his diligent and tiring work.
Once again, I appreciate how you patiently spent hours with me last evening. It was a unique experience. It felt like I found what I've been looking for. Not many things are left untouched and pure in this world. So I was lucky to come across your website to reach your incomparable pure and – if I may – innocent products. And hopefully you excused my nonsense, repeating questions because of excitement.
Throughout the several months that I have used your products, I have enjoyed the sublime experiences! – Patrick, USA
Thank you veeery much for the perfect service and those fantastic add ons to my orders ) I'm so deeply impressed with the oils , how impossibly beautiful , deep and complex they are !! Its a jaw dropping experience .. a beauty which leaves me speechless[...]Thank you Ensar team for your hard work and stunning results!
I spoke to my brother recently concerning his experience about Santal Royale after smelling it for the first time. To my astonishment, the same memories and feelings were brought back to him as well. We had a long conversation about our childhood, our loved ones and precious memories we had.
Jazaak Allahu Khayr to you brother Ensar for allowing us to relive those moments through this marvelous golden oil! We do not come across treasures like this every day.
Many thanks for the nice ouds.
I have never been touched by ouds from other suppliers . However, yours are amazing and I enjoyed each drop
I wanted to take a moment to thank Ensar and yourself, for my recent order. Everything was securely packaged in the box and each box was bubble wrapped, so everything made it to me intact. The shipping time from dispatch from Amman, Jordan my door took a mere 3 days! Astounding! Ensar was very kind and generous to send me 3 additional sample vials of oils which I cannot wait to try. The sample vial of Maroke Asgon has a copious amount of oil in it! Again, very generous! I am very well pleased with how this transaction went, and although I have not yet had a chance to wear every oil yet, I have sniffed the dipsticks of each and did not smell a single offensive note in the bunch, indeed I enjoyed each of them and cannot wait to try them.
I can’t recommend enough for all those in the intermediate stage of collecting and being dazzled by oils to seek out a ceramic heater of some sort, and begin to study the wood in its shaved or lightly dusted form. Being able to examine the hallmark characteristics in a species of wood on the heater, and discover the those same notes in oils distilled from that region is very eye opening (or nose opening!) I’ve been blessed to have been able to sample many high calibre woods over the last 12 months, and doing so has proved invaluable in trying to understand this fragrance I love so much. There is no oud-ucation without sitting with raw agarwood. There are experiences that can only be had by hovering over the heater, not to mention the experience of kinam on the tongue. By spending time with the wood, one also begins to understand the talent it takes to turn out a good oil, and be creative with the materials provided by nature. In a side-by-side comparison of a distilled oil and source wood, I’ve noticed the ability to enhance, exaggerate, mutate, hide, turn up, and tone down what has been experienced on the heater. There is wizardry in distillation, no doubt.
'I have just received my first order ... I am absolutely blown away and shocked at your generosity and free gifts!'
'Motherlode received! One of my happiest birthdays ever! Thank You Ensar Oud, Thank You DHL! Mind blown! Happy New Year "2020" to the incredible team (and their families) at Ensar Oud.'
'The packaging was great (super safe) and the black velvet box with the striking red pouch looks regal.'
I feel the need to thank you and the work you do and you have done !!
Apart from the lock down my cousin is fighting between life and death or COVID19 , and even if I try to go on with a smile for my two kids and my wife it isn’t easy , but your oud oil and the interest that is developing in me for you art is giving me an additional big smile , and the profumes of the oils help me to rejoin to the earth and to my soul !!
A big thanks
I wanted to express my gratitude towards the Ensar Oud team and how amazing these masterpieces are and a shout out to the master.
Your perfumes do something to time. They make it more permanent. More intentional. Thank you!
I think it's obvious that I'm in love with Ensar Oud, I can't stop buying. All of the ouds I have bought from you are amazing in their own right.
"Let me tell you something very honestly and from my personal experience. Since I fell in love with Oud I have shopped from many people in UK, Thailand, Canada etc. Ensar Oud customer service is the best and Ouds and other fragrances are unique, high quality, beautifully crafted and beyond expectations. Whenever I show my collection to anyone, they just simply go crazy."
Thanks for the miles you cover, the costs you are dealing with, the connections you have made, and dealing with some very tricky geography and cultures. Not to mention the incredible grasp of the science and equipment necessary to craft these olfactory works of art. I am in awe of what you and your team have accomplished to date. A daunting and endlessly complex challenge I am am sure. I take nothing for granted and fully enjoy every minute I get to experience these extremely rare treasures. God be with you and the team at Ensar oud.
Allahu Akbar! Never smelled anything like this before. Today I felt a different kind of happiness that I haven't felt in a very very very long time. I have no words to describe the ouds that you have sent me except out of this world. Now I know what real oud smells like. I am done with everyone out there selling ouds, doing nothing more than ripping off money with commercials and brainwashing. The smell of Borneo 3000 reminded me of my father when I was a child. Once I opened his suitcase 25 years ago and sniffed that thick syrup oud oil, that day and today I know what wild oud smells like. I am also so pleased with Zaza Zen and I thank you for your gift sample. You put a smile on my face as I opened the box. Your oils are precious and you deserve every penny for the effort you have put in to give us this liquid gold.
"I must say that the presentation of the #2 is bar none the best I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing! The leather jacket looks and smells wonderful."
I bought a few items from Ensar Oud and did a comparison between what I bought from a well known perfum house in Saudi vs Ensar Oud's products. I applied a small amount of Naga Layyen on my skin expecting some kind of funk. To my surprise it turned out to be citrusy with some creamy and a hint of saffron vibes to it! I compared it with the ones I bought from my trip to Jeddah... I should not have done that lol. Now I need to find a way to get rid of the ones I bought from Saudi. Everytime I take a whiff of it, it makes me want to go back to Jeddah and ask for a refund.
As for my fragrance journey? Where can it go after Oud? I am THERE.This is THE only place I want to be. Who wouldn't want Heaven? Swipe by swipe. I've just placed an order for Tongan Musk and sample EO N2.. I guess I feel like I'm discovering gold nuggets in the dust I've swept up along the way with Oud collecting.
First, and foremost, a heartfelt thank you for the most generous gift of the Raw Resin Tincture. What a delight it is! A rich wood smoke against a clean forest background with hints of spice, incense, and fruity sweetness woven through. Simple and long-lasting with reasonable sillage without being in any way overpowering/overwhelming; a real winner. While I generally am not a big fan of colognes[......] Your Raw Resin Tincture scores a complete bullseye on the target. Once again, thank you!
Just wanted to tell you that I love you both for the experience you give us… all the adventures I feel that I live throughout your experience and amazing work.
Even all the posts you send through email with the amazing reviews about the profile of each oil is like a big gift for me and a thrill to wait every Thursday or Saturday what else you are going to send us.
♡Don't stop the powerfull awakening ♡
Happy to come back to Ensar Oud after three years. Greetings from Spain where CV19 is a really big tragedy. I lost my mother last week, but not only me, too many people and families are with their own losses. Right now I opened my box that contains all ouds I bought from Ensar. All the vials are empty but oh! when my nose gets close...what a smell, what paradise around me. Just one vial contains a very little drop of oil, that I put on my wrists. I was, and I am, transported, down a special high light, peace, quietness of mind, meditating pulse... The problem is that the names of the oud has disappeared from the vials, so I don't know what oud I've taken. I'd appreciate you recommending some ouds with this divine light, transcending quality and so special smell I have now around me, like wood, smoke and jungle. Happy to write after these years. Saludos, Francisco.
Es un placer probar tus fragancias son diferentes a todas me encantan todas distintas y a la vez unidades unas obras de arte !!!!!
Un Abrazo muy fuerte desde la distancia esperando que salga azmicle y Ámbar gris pra cuando ??????
I am very pleased with the quality of the oils I have received. I feel like I have finally discovered the scents I have been searching for over the years.
"I’ve spent so many years (over 70!) trying to unravel the workings of fragrance. Unfortunately, I never could because of the aroma chemicals. What you see ain’t necessarily what you smell, and the lies that are perpetrated are astounding! I quit the whole scam, and have paid no attention until ENSAR OUD blessed my life. This is all so very interesting to me because it is REAL. Nature is so abundant and mysterious! So, thank you for helping my curiosity along! – Beverly, USA
Ernest Beaux, Yves saint Laurent ou Jean-Paul Guerlain en collaborant avec Ensar Oud nous aurez fait encore davantage rêver avec des parfums magiques et se seraient certainement rapprocher un peu plus de la perfection olfactive. Si vous êtes à la recherche de Oud authentiques aux multiples facettes sans aucun additif synthétique alors ne cherchez plus, Ensar Oud vous ouvre ses portes....
'My retirement funds are blowing in the wind like the sands of the desert yet I will invest in your oud because it will take my soul to a safe place until the storm subsides.'
'Your passion for this unique and sacred oil is truly a blessing to the world.'
'I just have to say it again... Your oil is unbelievably good! What a shame I didn't discover it earlier...'
'May Allah reward you for your hard work and efforts in bringing some of the most beautiful scents in the world and making them accessible to people.'
'Believe it or not I have not bought a single drop of oud from anyone else but you. Like I said back then, I knew immediately that I had to not look anywhere else, that you are the one I look to for ouds. I rely on you for quality and that's it.'
'I want to take this opportunity to let you know that other companies carry oud oils that are very good, but none of them seems to come close to the product that you provide. Even as a novice in oud as I have only been introduced to it via serendipity a few months ago, I can tell that your ouds are in a league all by themselves.'
'I've tried some of the other oils out there and to my mind yours are better by a country mile.'
'The best source that I know of for authentic oud oil is Ensar Oud.'
'Jazak Allahu Khairan for all your help and for all your efforts in this amazing service to humanity. I cannot thank you enough for all of your countless sacrifices and for your honesty and morality in bringing the world 100% pure Oud of the best grade and quality. I pray that Allah places his divine pleasure and baraka in your noble efforts.'
'I can see why you're the Oud King of quality! Soon I'll invest in your LTD collection!'
'With regards to your efforts on cultivation and organic farming - alhamdu li Llah - what a great step! I would trust only you in this venture, and I have full confidence that you can and will pull this off. Only someone with infinite love and intimate detail for oud can see this through, and to me that can only be Ensar.'
'The journey from my first purchase to my most recent has been valuable. It has taught me a lot about Ensar Oud and his philosophy, and about myself. I have learnt that there is no one like Ensar in the Oud business and no oud in the business like Ensar's. I've learnt that I'm impatient once I've placed my order and very finicky about what I receive, when I receive it and how I receive it. I think your response to the present situation is befitting of yourself.'
'In sha Allah you will succeed in establishing organic Oud cultivation. Helping you with this beautiful action is an honor for me.'
'I had almost forgotten what real oud wood was like. It was so nice to once again be able to experience the 'real thing'. I haven’t bought oud wood in a while because, quite frankly, it simply isn't available in the markets here unless you fancy the waxed, polished, painted, dipped and soaked variety.'
'Please relay my sincere appreciation to Ensar for his dedication to such amazing quality Oud oils. They are truly a gateway to the divine, both within and without.'
'I can guarantee that I will do a lot more future business with you. I believe your fragrances are the best in the world and that is why I sacrifice my hard earned cash on your products and I am starting my very own oud collection. I do not drink or smoke so one of my only pleasures in life is enjoying the sensual aromas of your very special oud oils. I am greatly appreciative of your generosity and consideration.'
'Having spent time with your oils now, I can say that they are truly in a class of their own, and each oil is absolutely unique! There is nothing 'standard' about any of them.'
'Ensar Oud is a class act, all the way! I am excited as a child on his birthday to receive the packages - never having experienced in life scents so beautifully otherworldly and profound. Thank you, Ensar, and everyone else involved in the blessing that is your Oud.'
'I should hate you for introducing me to your products. I haven't the money as the Great Recession of 2008 washed squarely against my door but I cannot resist. How is this for selfish: I typically wear it at home while I'm reading. I still read an actual book, not a pad, and the scent from my wrist wafts up transporting me further than the book itself does.'
'I've been using the oils I purchased from you nearly every day, and they have brought true inspiration and great comfort. For that I am very thankful... you have been a true blessing in my life, my brother!'
'The LTD Oud is exceptional. I have spent many hours sitting quietly and pondering each one. They have brought me much peace and beneficial introspection. I only hope I can put into words my impressions. But at the moment there are few words to describe the very beautiful, intimate experience.'
'I think these Ouds will render my previous collection completely useless!'
'Your oils continually remind me of all that is wondrous in this world. Thank you so very much. May you forever prosper.'
'I received my Sampler today and, as suspected, was pleasantly surprised. The whole experience with Ensar Oud has, thus far, been a pleasant one. From dealing with Mr. Kruger to work out some past shipping issues, to receiving the order within just a few short days (even the plastic bubble wrap smelled good, my first indication that I had finally found the real deal), to opening that beautiful purple bag to reveal the little treasures hidden inside. Everything that I've experienced from Ensar Oud, from the service to the packaging to the actual product, has screamed QUALITY and has proven to me the great pride and care the people of Ensar Oud take in their product as well as their customers.'
'Originally from the US, I have been living in the UAE for over 16 years and have tirelessly searched for a good quality Oud, with little success. Walking into shops, from the big names to the small dark alley ones, and trying supposed 'quality' ouds just to be, once again, disappointed. I've not purchased much over the years, as I've rarely found any that justified the prices being charged compared to the quality offered. Oh, I've tried countless samples, but would never directly purchase an Oud immediately after just trying some. Instead, I would always tell the salesperson that I'd wait a few hours to see how it lasts and develops and would be back if I liked it. Needless to say, I rarely, if ever returned as the scent always disappeared after a short while...hardly worth my hard earned money. Based on what I have experienced here in the local market, I was always extremely weary to even attempt to purchase Oud online, but Ensar Oud has changed all that. You can consider me a faithful customer and I truly look forward to dealing with Ensar Oud for years to come. You have gained my confidence and my loyalty. Thank you for a truly wonderful experience.'
'Thank you. I love your oils. You have introduced me to a world of smells that I never knew existed.'
'Thank you, Ensar! The oils are delicious! I love them! And I like the wrapping paper too! Thank you so much!'
'Visiting your site is always like finding myself in a peaceful, refreshing garden.'
'The quality you offer is just unbeatable by anyone I know. I actually studied my Alim Course in Pakistan and during that time I got to know of a few Oud suppliers there. Yours beats theirs by miles and miles.'
'You described each oil perfectly and quite accurately, and as I get to know them more and more I seem to fall in love with each one differently.'
'My soul has grown in awakening after I came to Ensar Oud. And I have not bought anything, not even a sample, a drop, nothing from any other oud sellers. Nor am I going to. Since day one it was Ensar Oud and I simply have not felt any drive or thirst to explore further. Why should I? I knew immediately when I came to Ensar that this is it. Thank you, Ensar! What beautiful blessings you have brought me!'
'Ahhh what a relief, the Ensar Oud website has remained quiet and calm for some days now, without any insane annoucements of some rare oud disappearing that you just gotta have. (Try live without the Borneo once you know it, good luck!)
Thank God things have mellowed out now, but I am sure it's only for a while, you know how the saying goes about the silence before the storm, and you know Ensar, suddenly he pops up out of nowhere from the woodworks (or rather agarworks) with a bag of you know what, the finest most pristine Oud in the whole world and then we are back at it again (ordering!) clicking that mouse like a madman! :)
We owe his Shaykh and him gratitude, for sending Ensar in the right direction! Ensar certaintly dug up something useful, wouldn't you say!'
'I always knew you had very good Oud oils, but after attending the ISNA conference, and sampling some of the oud oils available in the bazaar, I came to realize just how amazing your oils really are!
There were some 'Borneos', and 'Papuas', but when it came down to it, nothing compared to the oils I purchased from you. Thank you for making available the Quality that you do!'
'I was delighted to hear that you are a Sufi, although I should have known given your passion for authenticity and our favorite doorway to the Divine - Oud. As you well know, many Americans are now familiar with Sufi poetry through some very fine translations of Rumi and others. Sadly, perhaps it is only through the Sufi expression that we may know Islam a bit better than we do. The poetry is sublime and 'true' on so many levels and your glorious Oud helps access some of the psychic space within ourselves where the resonances of God and Art reside. Beyond simple 'scent', the quality of your products really does bring us to a new and more sublime world for us to explore. My thanks and prayers for your continued contributions.'
'You have the best Oud on the market.'
'Your Oud brings an increase in self awareness; whereas perfume just makes us fragrant, it does not relax us or awaken us. Oud does this. I feel Oud offers a strong powerful way to reconnect or balance ourselves from an unfocused state of mind to a focused state of mind. The way we view life and act can be profoundly altered if we bring Oud into our lives. Oud helps us to awaken and evolve spiritually. As for the one who is somewhat alert and awake, special blessings await him.'
'Well... yet another bottle of magic to tempt me! With the economy so shaky, I should not do this but if I have to stand in the unemployment line I will at least smell like a Prince! Thank you!'
'My wife and I feel it is a privilege to have the opportunity to own your Oud - the finest, most transporting anywhere!'
'You have a reputation for being very responsive to your customers and sending extra little vials out with packages. - It makes a difference, especially with such a personal product.'
'I'm not a philosopher, but there is an incredible power infused in the products you sell... Your agarwood oils are the 'bridge' between the real and the unreal.'
'Thank you so very much for the oils you offer, they are gifts certainly from the Godhead! I have become a habituated devotee of your Oud line, especially the Brunei Supreme. The complexity and transporting capability of your pure Oud is an utterly singular experience having no equal. I will, without fail, allow for further Oud oils in next year's budget. Ensar, it is a pleasure doing business with your fine, fine company.'
'After the acquisition of a few inferior products via the internet, I came across your site. There was something in the descriptions of the products that made me realize that here was someone with real knowledge - not just a marketer, but a true lover of Oud, a connoisseur. That is when I took the plunge and ordered the Sampler. Such subtlety! Such spiritual elegance! I have been so distracted by these oils that I have left a number of important things undone! Your oils have brought me a deep happiness.'
'I want to thank you again for your kindness. I love your incredible oils and am so happy that I found you. There are many people out there that say they have the purest and the best, but most do not. I truly know and feel You are such a wonderful resource. These oils move my soul and I believe they open up certain parts of our memory that have been misunderstood. I believe there are certain gifts that are released to us, when we are exposed to such ancient scents. I for one, could never be without these precious jewels. Thank you so very, very much for making them available! I can't wait to receive my newest order!'
'Your Ouds are astounding! Thank you very much.'
'All the samples offered strikingly multifaceted bouquets and uniqueness. This is the first time I've sampled real agarwood oil, so I have little basis for comparison, but the purity and quality of all the Oud oils you sent me was obvious.'
'I just wanted to write today and say how much I am enjoying the Ensar Ouds. Your products are certainly the BEST available and provide an uplifting experience. I keep an eye on your beautiful webpage too! I am not currently ready to purchase any additional Ouds but keep me in mind for early August. I am now getting ready to travel to Slovakia on research and will return in late July. All remaining funds are going to be kept for OUD!'
'I recently received your Oud Sampler. I must say I was astonished. I have bought a number of agarwood oils over the internet. Most have been inferior, some have been good, but none of them come close to the quality of your oils. Being fairly new to Oud, I was a little concerned at the price of your oil, but now I know - you get what you pay for!'
'In all seriousness, your products are otherworldly. Such quality, such sheer delight. I have never experienced anything - including my beloved Kyara incense - that is so mysterious, so evocative, so sublime as your Ouds. Many thanks to you my friend...'
'The sublime quality your product, along with your excellent customer service, have ensured that I will always return to Ensar Oud to procure, quite simply, the best Oud that I have yet found.'
'Just to say the oils came shortly after recieving your e-mail. You have another very satisfied customer who can only commend you on your products, service and customer care.'
'Ensar Oud was the first place I purchased Oud from. I fell in love with it, but didn't know much about Oud. Thinking I was smart, I bought some from other sources to build a collection of scents, and perhaps save a little money. Finally, my wife came to me and said, 'I don't care how much you spent on the other stuff, please stop wearing it. They all stink. From now on, I only want you to wear the Oud from Ensar." True story. Enough said.'
'The second package with the Oud Sultan Murad arrived at my home yesterday. And what else can I do than to repeat the words I already said about your other products? Each fragrance is a pure, unique and overwhelming artwork of the Almighty and Merciful Creator. And I start wondering whether you are ever going to sell something of just 'normal' quality... A great pleasure to have these fragrances in my collection! I will for sure come back to buy some more from you soon. Until then my brother: Thanks for all. May God bless you and your family.'
'You and I need to become good friends, because I truly love good scents but am not so rich as to afford them... and you're the scent man :)'
'I tried each of them like a big ceremony, together with my wife. It was like they came direct from heaven! Each of them is a treasure and exactly as you described them. I always get surprised at what great fragrances the Almighty has created and how multifaceted they are. I am afraid I will have to stop here and go back to my samples again, they are calling me!'
'The scents are everything you promised. Since fragrance is a kind of hobby of mine, this Oud adventure has ruined me for more traditional scents. I think it is because the Oud is the closest thing to the various scents of the human body (like them or not) and after all these years it turns out that that is what I have been looking for! Not cover-up scents but enhancements of what is already there. This is a new and fascinating area of study for me.'
'I have now had a little time to live with the oils you sent me, and it has been truly educational. Everything you have said to me is so true, and I can feel my senses opening in a deep and profound way. We did have a few of the Arab perfumes in our home, but your oils have made everything else seem like a weak, one-dimensional imitation of the real thing. At the moment, I am still getting to know each of the oils, discovering the layers as they reveal themselves... I love it! To experience the way your oils evolve on the skin cannot be explained to anyone! Magnificent!'
'I just recieved your Oud al-Hindi and wanted to write you to let you know how pleased I am with it. It does have that lovely sweet smell of jinko that one finds in the Japanese incense as in the Indonesian and Thai varieties.'
'I received your Oud Sampler recently, which I found astonishing. I am fairly new to Oud, but your products make me crazy - I am already an addict!'
'I just wanted to thank you so much for your kindness and your wonderful contribution. I do believe that Oud and Agarwood are among the most ancient, timeless and beautiful scents known to man. I truly know that I could never be without them in my life. I feel that they open certain parts of the brain that cannot be reached in any other way. I am so very grateful to you for bringing the finest quality to others. Many people say they have these precious oils, but since many people do not know what to expect, they are taken advantage of. You are truly a Blessing and again I truly feel your oils are the finest and I want to thank you so much. This is the true medicine of the soul from this incredible Earth that we all share! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so looking forward to receiving my new order! Please take care of your wonderful self.'
'Received my order yesterday, and I am delighted with products. They are superb! Many thanks for your help.'
'I wanted to let you know after making several purchases, that I've been very pleased every time. Your quality scents and customer service are second to none! You can count on my repeat business.'
'Thanks again. Your advice and service are exemplary. My only gripe is I now have a life long addiction.'
'I wish I tried your stuff a couple years ago. I want the best, I'm hooked!'
'From the very bottom of my heart, thank you for making this sacred oil available. I first hesitated due to the prices, but now I know they are totally worth it and will definitely return for a couple of full tolas.'
'I wish I had a time machine that I could travel back in time with and purchase all the amazing Oud oils I missed out on.'
'I will continue to be a happy customer of Ensar Oud. For me, there's no other Oud like Ensar's.'
'You have my phone number if you ever want or need to call me. I can talk in sentences now. Much better now. I first said you probably shouldn't call. Wouldn't be able to make sense of my speech. I'm getting better. Especially with 'Top shelf Oud therapy.' I really do think it helps. Every night I can sit with your medicine. Meditation helps my mind.'
'This is really the best oud I've had the chance to smell and I am so happy I found you!'
It is such a pleasure to make business with you. The service is excellent, and so are all your products, be they mukhallats or Oud oils. There's only more pleasure in actually wearing one of your oils.
I think one of the most overlooked things about Oud (yours specifically) is the healing properties that it carries within itself. Whenever I use on of your Ouds I am put into a calm and relaxing mental state that no other material object on this earth can duplicate. It is an honor to be a part of the many works of art that you have created. Sending you this gift is the least that I can do to show my sincere gratitude for your skilled craft and passion in creating something which elicits such an overwhelming sensation.
This is the best OUD ever.
‘First let me thank you for totally changing my perspective towards Oud. In the past, Oud was a burden to wear in social & religious events since I was trying to imitate older people who liked Oud. But I couldn't find Oud that convinced me it was worth what I was paying for it, even though I tried buying from well known shops like ASAQ. Each time I would get this annoying burnt rubber smell...’
I have to say that for several years now, yours is the only company from which I have bought oud because I have detected or suspected adulteration in some (or all) of other companies’ products, but never in yours.
Thank you Ensar
