EO No 1: Assam


Leather and oud go together like king and crown, and there’s no sweeter spot between the rustic allure of Ensar’s artisanal—often mad—oud world and popular perfumery than this oudilicious addition to the cuir tradition. A rugged aroma that makes you wonder if Hemingway just lit up a Cuban, or if Churchill’s in town.

Not only is this among the highest quality oud fragrances that have ever been produced in spray-format (along with the likes of Oud Yusuf and Oud Royale), the entire composition is infused into a high-concentration, genuine raw ambergris tincture instead of just plain ethanol.

No 1 lets you exude wafts of a tobacco-heavy, old-school leather jacket aroma with an unmistakable Don Corleone kiss-my-hand-compagno esteem. Subtle, but not soft, with a base that’s all oud and vintage horse-saddle leather.

This edition is the closest to the original. In fact, it’s an improvement and the most classic No 1 to date thanks to the addition of traditional Assamese oud, aged for nine years, steeped in the late Sultan Qaboos’ own vintage ambergris – the same stones that went into Oud Royale.
