Dusita Oudh Infini was launched in 2016, created by Pissara Umavijani. The is raw and challenging, and the opening will make you gasp - in horror or shock or joy - but the development is really spectacular, even if this isn't your kind of scent. You may find out that it really is, just be patient.
“Dawn in the sky: a tiny stream of gold grows and expands, imperceptibly, until it covers the whole sky and turns itself into silver.” - Montri Umavijani
Dusita Oudh Infini has Laotian oud, rose de mai, orange blossom, benzoin, sandalwood, vanilla, musk, civet and is an extrait de parfum.
Luca Turin - "Judging by the three extant Dusita fragrances, I reckon there may be a beautiful new voice out there. The first I smelled was Mélodie de l’Amour. It is a white floral, and a very good one at that, but disconcertingly rendered in faded grey tones that remind me of the paper note in Dzing! Note that, for once, faded and grey do not here mean weak or indistinct. MdA has a powerful presence, but feels like it is heard through radio static on short wave: immediately recognisable, yet veiled and remote. Then I smelled Oudh Infini. It could hardly be more different, powerfully animalic and musty. But again, the weird, drifting grey fog was there, this time muting the bright colors of orange flower and rose. I moved on to Issara, a fougère that smells of rain, wet tea leaves and cold cigars. To paraphrase Lady Bracknell, three begins to look like intent.
Kafkaesque - "'Sexy goats covered in roses'...The overall effect is skanky but creamy, ripe from fermented cheese and musky animals (particularly goats), and, yet, it smells like the expensive, high-end version of all those things. This isn’t the head-on, full, oud camel caravan like some Middle Eastern scents; I don’t feel lambasted by dirty camel breath or hit with heaping piles of hot, steaming, cow dung. These “camels” have been washed enough to weaken their gritty, raw dirtiness into something more like goats...If the heart stage is lovely, the drydown is simply superb. It begins roughly at the start of the 7th hour, and is dominated primarily by heavy waves of Mysore sandalwood and its spiced richness. It envelops the oud, encasing it, sometimes sublimating it into a whisper of incense-scented wood and cheesy earthiness. As someone who loves sandalwood far more than I could ever love oud, the shift in the balance of notes makes my heart sing."
Basenotes - "The overriding radiant impression is of the most refined sweet woody tones merged with a kitten-soft yet wild sweet musk, animalic but so endearingly at one with human skin. Beyond that, an arc of scent sensations – the hay of the farmyard (robustly aromatic but not fecal), honeyed and caramelized notes, the milky, silky penetration of proper sandalwood, woodfire tones, sharp new leather but tamed by the musk, and roses distilled into nectar. This is complexity of the best kind – a chamber of associations inviting habitation."
