The first whiff right from the stick proves that this is a very unique specimen, very different from other Indian agarwood oils.
The opening note has a pronounced sweet woodiness somewhat reminiscent of fine Cambodian ouds. While the opening is not bold in an intimidating way, it is nevertheless powerful and penetrating. As the scent develops on the skin, a spiciness emerges, suggesting fennel, saffron, and other precious spices.
As the scent develops further, the classic Indian oud character starts to emerge. Sweet hay, precious wood, and spices warmed by the sun. It finally releases into a rich woodiness that is surprisingly cool as well, rivaling many Indonesian ouds in its coolness.
