No.9 Bukhoor Elixir de Parfum
No.9 Bukhoor by Thomas Kosmala for Unisex
- Concentration: Elixir de Parfum
- Size available: 100 ml
A rich, exotic aroma unlike anything else. Thomas Kosmalas bukhoor, or bakhoor as it is sometimes known, is the Arabic name for woodchips that have been soaked in precious essential oils, mixed with shards of frankincense and other resins, and finally pressed into soft, brownish bricks to be smoked slowly over an incense burner. All over the Middle East, bukhoor is burned generously to banish domestic smells of cooking and to make the home smell warm and welcoming to visitors.
Bukhoor, derived from the Arabic for burning incense, is a scent that honors its source material by being rich, smoky, and pugnacious -- with an Arabic personality thats surprisingly authentic. The animalic bite of aged Hindi oud hits the nose first, its characteristic aroma of raw leather, and slightly dirty hay burning a blaze across the olfactory landscape.
The scent mellows considerably in the base, where it takes a turn for dry and smoky with a smoldering woods note and where burnt paper, benzoin and brown sugar appear. A bold, no-holds-barred take on an ancient material and proof of Kosmalas skill in handling it expertly.
