"I freaking love it!"
“Thank you for the Beautiful Tan Xiang Supreme. It should be called "Santal Everywhere", because the first week I could smell it everywhere and anytime. I cannot help myself but I lit another stick again. It is pretty addictive.” – Milan, Italy
“The tasbihs are beautiful. They are slightly fragrant, displaying soft and delicate aroma and super lightweight. Not sure if this is the reason, but they almost make you feel weightless when you hold them. Also because of how light and fragile they feel, they kind of give you a sense of preciousness of the moment and its fragility at the same time. Very happy I purchased them.” – Elina, USA
"I am extremely impressed once again, TIGERLUST is such a well balanced fragrance that suits my tastes perfectly. All of the notes work to compliment and support each other, rather than fight each other to be the star of the show. If I was going to describe it in one sentence....Tropical flowers wrapped up in a cashmere blanket of oud and musk. Smooth, balanced, and blended to perfection." – Scott, US
"Got TIGERLUST on now and zoning out to its exotic power and beauty. The opening is like the best parts of all of your parfums distilled, refined, and elevated… and the drydown is Oud bliss!
Have to see what it does in the open air and wind… but for now I am, as always, impressed by the delicate power of your work." – Steve, NY
"Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new #1 Champion…
TIGERLUST!!! As far as Parfums go, this is Ensar's Magnum Opus!" – Van Glorius
"I'll take this over War & Peace any day. That's really the only one the notes come close to comparing to. Bortnikoff really doesn't go this direction of heavy musk. In his lineup, I don't know anything I would compare to this. This is heavily about deer musk and having that as your dry down which lasts over twelve hours. This is some of the longest lasting perfume I have, just like EO No 2." – Therapeutic Fragrance
"I just put it on and am floored. This is a full on ensemble happening on my skin.
Big Words, Big Perfume backing up those words. Ensar put everything into this one.
This is heavily about deer musk and having that as your dry down which lasts over twelve hours. This is some of the longest lasting perfume I have, just like EO No 2.
This is the one. It combines all of his best work." – Therapeutic Fragrance
"It's definitely got aspects of EO No 1, EO No 2, EO Private Blend, Iris Ghalia... In saying that, I guess what that really means is that I can now recognize the Ensar-aid, the fragrance DNA that is imprinted in all of his Parfum creations. However, there are nuanced as well as marked differences in each and every one of them. If you can understand what those differences are you will also understand the artistry behind it. The real beauty of his work is what it does in the open air and in the wind, how it reacts to ones body heat and chemistry... the way that they react to the seasons and temperature, and any and all combinations in between.
Iris Ghalia, if you've smelled it, you'll notice that the musk is front and center and the beautiful florals envelope it. TIGERLUST is very similar but the way that it is done is a step above that of Iris Ghalia. Not better but different. It's like with music — you can use bass and drums (Musk) as the anchor... and guitar, keys, horns, synths (Oud, Iris, Osthmantus, etc) for rhythm, melody and lead. – Steve, USA
I am 1hr into my first wearing of TIGERLUST and its been a roller-coaster thus far. I must admit when I first lifted the cap and smelt it from the atomizer - I was slightly disappointed - it smelt VERY similar to Iris Ghalia from the cap. And then I sprayed it on skin and that is where the fun started. The opening 5-10 mins is reminiscent of EO No 1, a burst of oud, civet and rose.. in fact my partner asked if I was wearing EO1... .. but then at approximately the 10 min mark it U-turns, and the EO1 "accord" recedes, and now I'm smelling one the most amazing frangipani notes Ive ever experienced. Its frangipani soaking in a buttery feel - which must be from the orris root. The frangipani is not that dissimilar to (dare I say) the frangapani note in Plumeria de Orris - from that other great house (the similarities between the two fragrances end there).
Its an interesting first 1hr. There is a constant shift back and forth between a leathery vibe (the castoreum or civet?) and the floral-buttery feel of the frangipani and orris... Just when I think the frangipani is gone, it rears its head again.
At about the 1hr-90 min mark there is a temporary shift again - this time the accord reminds me of Iris Ghalia (again) - it's the blackcurrent and ambergris starting to emerge. The blackcurrent stage doesnt last too long, and then it seems to move to a spicey, peppery musk (ensar list sichuan pepper as an ingredient).. not tooo dissimilar to EO2...
Anyway, I'm at 2.5 hrs. The first comment was that this is like a "best of" of Ensar's work but amplified and enhanced..... and I think that is very accurate if you are familiar with his other creations. In the space of 2.5 hrs ive experienced aspects EO1, IG and EO2 - but certainly enhanced and more refined." – OB, Korea
"If anyone here is familiar with the X Men, this fragrance is Mystique. The shapeshifter of the fragrance universe. Complex... and it will take many wearings for me to fully understand.
I am in the middle of a full wearing today (despite it being pretty hot here lol). This fragrance is brilliant. If you're a fan of animalic, oud, floral fragrances it's a safe bet. It isn't pungent or offensive.
Opens up like some kind of hybrid of EO NO 1 + Iris Ghalia, ambergris, musk and some light fruity floral notes. As it progresses some iris, blackcurrant, more florals and some clean oud (by clean I mean no barnyard) becomes apparent.
That's about it for now. Let's see how it develops from here." – AD, Australia
"I think Borneo Zazen is a milestone, a true heavyweight and a landmark- everything from the start develops in a most peculiar way, everything is BOLD and maybe the person wearing this scent needs much self-confidence. It is modern and retro at the same time, proud and loud way. Personally, I'd prefer to wear a fragrance like this in complete solitude (top of a mountain, seashore, desert?) so that nothing would detract me from the sensations it keeps sending to me. And the cold and clear winter weather is even more supporting the flowery components and prolongs all effects!" — Erhard, Austria
“The (Chen Xiang Superior) incense is great, smells fantastic and I love it.” — Ilidio, Portugal
“This lavender is absolutely beautiful , I love the sugary powdery dry down.” — Svetlana, USA
“...Aroha D'Afrique... outclasses all vetivers I have encountered and relegates them to the MOTHBALL league!” — Erhard, Austria
“The EO2 pure parfum is simply breathtaking. The first whiff was overwhelming and led to a rather loud ‘SubhanAllah’ (whilst still in the box!)... Applying the parfum is a phenomenal experience! The animalic muskiness and the gentle fruity undertone work in soft equilibrium. By far, an exquisitely composed artisanal beauty.” — Qasim, UK
“...the (agarwood) tasbih arrived this morning- really beautiful! Now I realize the difference!” — Erhard, Austria
“As I lighted the oud incense I noted the old wood smell that the sandalwood one also has. I was like ‘Hmmmm... old wood.' and ten seconds later… the kyara smell. Sweet, rum, booze as in many of my finest Japanese ones.” — Javier, Peru
“The Hindi Classique and Chen Xiang Superior were up to expectations and didn’t fail to impress.” — Zuhair, Dubai
“The beautiful Melissa Exquis. Wow...that’s all I can say! I know Melissa very well (aka lemon balm), and this is the most spot-on gorgeous rendition of it I’ve ever smelled. My, my, my...it has that indescribable fragrance that is so elusive. It truly does dispel grief and promote happiness. Pleased to the quote:
I weave light into words so that
When your mind holds them
Your eyes will relinquish their sadness,
Turn bright, a little brighter, giving to us
The way a candle does
To the dark
—Hafiz” — Beverly, USA
“I'm just happy that I'm able to experience and own these fine oils. As for Zaza Zen, it's amazing, I finally put it on skin two days ago. It truly leaves a beautiful scent trail; I get this sweet incensy and honey note from it. Almost reminiscent of oud extraordinaire that transitions into low burning oud and subtle honey.” — Guy, USA
“The Japanese Rose is amazing!! So happy I have some now.” — Steven, USA
“There is no because, and there is no expectation. Because expectations are high, they are likely not to be fulfilled. Not in this case. Or as Frank Zappa once said, everything is the opposite of what it is. My best decision this year, order of 2x3g ZaZaZen- SPLENDID!! Is it something else? Time will tell. Eye, ear, mouth, nose: no decision.” — Erhard, Austria
“The smell (of Sultan Musk Attar) is quite divine. Thank you.” — Angie, UK
“I sniffed Ambra 76 and I used a tiny dip with a toothpick, its soft, buttery and potent at the same time. An aged Mysore blended very well with ambergris give it an amazing velvety smell that anyone will appreciate it.” — Khalid, USA
“In case of Japanese Rose, it’s an amazing smell and potent. it just reminds me of Al Taif rose... but it changes gradually to a sweetly rose after some time. It lasts for a few hours on my skin with tiny dip.” — Khalid, USA
“I'm truly happy with Japanese Rose. I was lucky enough to get a sample previously, and I truly fell in love, this is what rose is supposed to smell like.” — Guy, USA
“How wonderful! I hope to be back for more soon!!” — Steven, USA
“Zaza Zen is a beautiful Oud and I like it allot. It is, to say the least, very rich and and full of resinous vapour. It is worth every penny I have paid and will love wearing it often. It is very addictive and meditative. No one, besides the Ensar team, can come close to offer such a beautiful Oud at such a good price and I hope you can offer similar quality Ouds which posses such deep, beautiful character in the future at such an incredible price.” — Arfan, UK
“Your service to this world will be remembered as a legend. Not only that, your work inspires and drives many... you can go to sleep at night knowing that your creations helped bring out the true beauty and wonder in people, gave people courage and strength but also moments of bliss and peace unparalleled by anything else.
To create such ineffable moments and experiences and to inspire greatness is the most noble achievement one can strive for.” — Chris, New Zealand
“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 that’s probably the case for many.” — Taher, UAE
“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!” — Michael, USA
“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.” — Customer
“Thank you to all of you at Ensar Oud for improving my life through fragrance.” — John, UK
“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.” — Lance, USA
“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.” — Customer
“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.” — Customer, USA
“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!” — Customer, USA
“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.” — Akram Aghadi
“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! Ma'a salama.” — Dr Qasim from Canada
“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.” — James, USA
“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.” — Customer
“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.” — Alka
“This is not the first time I receive Oud from you. Thank you for including 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!” — Hao
“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 it’s the most royal of the four. It seems suited for a king. An ASAQ actually opened in Toronto a week before I received 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. It’s 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.” — Inamullah
“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.” — Christina
“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.” — Damien
“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.” — Aeona
“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.” — Faisal
“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.” — Faisal
“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.
I 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.” — Matt
“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.” — Hank
“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.” — Muhammed Afthab, UAE
“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.” — Milan, Slovakia
“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.” — Harun, Turkey
“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....” — Mohammed, France
“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.” — Tom Kennedy, NY
“Your passion for this unique and sacred oil is truly a blessing to the world.” — Bev Byrnes, WA
“I just have to say it again... Your oil is unbelievably good! What a shame I didn’t discover it earlier...” — Bob, Israel
“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.” — Shafiq, UK
“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.” — James, Denmark
“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.” — Alex, France
“I’ve tried some of the other oils out there and to my mind yours are better by a country mile.” — Chris, USA
“The best source that I know of for authentic oud oil is Ensar Oud.” — Christopher McMahon, WA
“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.” — Jibran, NJ
“I can see why you”re the Oud King of quality! Soon I’ll invest in your LTD collection!” — Kevin, MA
“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.” — Asif, UK
“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.” — Asif, UK
“In sha Allah you will succeed in establishing organic Oud cultivation. Helping you with this beautiful action is an honor for me.” — Talip, Netherlands
“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.” — Yousuf, UAE
“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.” — Don Harper, IL
“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.” — Q.

“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.” — Neeshee, HI
“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.” — Glenn, NJ
“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.” — Jamie, MA
“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!” — Sage, CA
“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.” — Glenn, NJ
“I think these Ouds will render my previous collection completely useless!” — Jeremy Rowland, UK
“Your oils continually remind me of all that is wondrous in this world. Thank you so very much. May you forever prosper.” — Don Harper, IL
“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.” — Yousuf, UAE
“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.” — Yousuf, UAE
“Thank you. I love your oils. You have introduced me to a world of smells that I never knew existed.” — Billy, FL
“Thank you, Ensar! The oils are delicious! I love them! And I like the wrapping paper too! Thank you so much!” — Adam, VA
“Visiting your site is always like finding myself in a peaceful, refreshing garden.” — Glenn, NJ
“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.” — Abdul Wahab, CA
“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.” — Sage, DC
“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!” — J. Gordon, Denmark
“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!” — J. Gordon, Denmark
“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!” — Amir Shah, IL
“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 us 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.” — Tom Kennedy, NY
“You have the best Oud on the market.” — G. Lynch, CA
“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.” — J. Gordon, Denmark
“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!” — T. Kennedy, NY
“My wife and I feel it is a privilege to have the opportunity to own your Oud - the finest, most transporting anywhere!” — Glenn, NJ
“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.” — B. Ripley, MA
“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.” — Michael, ID
“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.” — Glenn, NJ
“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.” — Lee, NM
“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!” — J. Cummings, HI
“Your Ouds are astounding! Thank you very much.” — J. Capece, NY
“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.” — K. Clayton, Australia
“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!” — John Berg, WI
“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!” — Lee, NM
“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...” — Lee, NM
“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.” — M. Cleaver, NM
“Just to say the oils came shortly after receiving your e-mail. You have another very satisfied customer who can only commend you on your products, service and customer care.” — M. Williams, UK
“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.” — Terry, IL
“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.” — Andy, Germany
“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 :).” — Erol, NY
“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!” — Andy, Germany
“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.” — Tom Kennedy, NY
“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!” — Sage, CA
“I just received 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.” — Randy, TX
“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!” — Lee, NM
“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.” — J. Cummings, HI
“Received my order yesterday, and I am delighted with products. They are superb! Many thanks for your help.” — Andrew Scott, UK
“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.” — David, NY
“Thanks again. Your advice and service are exemplary. My only gripe is I now have a lifelong addiction.” — Theo, UK
“I wish I tried your stuff a couple years ago. I want the best, I’m hooked!” — Kevin, MA
“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.” — Eric, Sweden
“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.” — Shafiq, UK
“I will continue to be a happy customer of Ensar Oud. For me, there’s no other Oud like Ensar’s.” — Thomas, Germany
“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.” — “Kev”, MA
“This is really the best oud I’ve had the chance to smell and I am so happy I found you!” — Tatyana, HI
“It is such a pleasure to do 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.” — Thomas, Germany
“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.” — Chris, IL
“Your video posts are great. I appreciate the time you take to do this. Armchair traveling with Ensar Oud. I love it.” — Jordan, New Zealand
“This is the best OUD ever.” — A. Shajrawi, Jordan
“For me, there is nothing better than opening up a black box from Ensar Oud!” — Ronda, USA
“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...” — Abdul Aziz, Kuwait
“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.” — Ellen
“Thank you Ensar.” — A. Shajrawi, Jordan
