Founded in 2004, Ensar Oud is quite likely the world’s most exacting oud producer and perfume house. Ensar himself is famous for his extravagant efforts in sourcing the rarest, richest, most opulent natural ingredients, showing no restraint in ensuring that even the tiniest bit that goes into your perfume adds a multifaceted, otherworldly dimension that enriches your relationship with fragrance.
Oakmoss & coffee beans veneered with Tonkin khus and… obviously – vintage Maroke oud. Hints of coriander and pepper spiced up with clove make it a cocktail of India’s zest, earthy flavor, and deep green incense.
That’s if you do some sniffing over your third or fourth application. When it comes to that first swipe of this new attar, it’s unadulterated oud vapor wafting right at you…
You’ll think you’re the incense; a scent so oud smokey it’s like your own wrist is the charcoal with a fat chunk of Papua oozing out its oud.
Maroke Maharaja is a fragrance that includes such notes as: Coriander, Fig, Black Pepper, Immortelle, Blue Cypress, Cardamom, Black Tea, Tobacco, Oakmoss, Maroke Agarwood and Coffee. The opening of the fragrance welcomes us with a pleasant hint of tobacco, oud and coffee. The composition is incredibly aromatic, mysterious and alluring. With each subsequent minute, the fragrance gets more aromatic notes. Now you can also feel pepper, black tea and cardamom. This is actually my favorite moment of the projection. The fragrance sits perfectly on the skin, especially in the evening. Maroke Maharaa is definitely the scent of a dark night that hides many interesting aromas. In the last stage, the composition becomes incredibly woody, with a slightly creamy fig and coriander. I am delighted with how wonderfully the ingredients blend together.
The fragrance parameters are at the highest level. The composition stays on the body for many hours. I must admit that I felt the smell on my wrist after the second bath. As if it had gotten a second life. Ensar Oud is a brand worth checking out, and I will certainly help you discover it with further reviews.
