    Kanøn Agarwood by Kanon

    This is the wimpiest oud around, but oud nevertheles, and for that reason alone I like it.
    Its synthetic breed is blatantly obvious, but that doesn't mean is unappealing, cheap smelling, thrashy.
    As shamu said, its drydown is plasticine like, but not as bad as ruining the perfume.

    How come my critique is so harsh (wimpy, synthetic, plasticine-like) and still this scent gets my thumbs up?
    I honestly do not know, everything I said is IMO as I said, but the perfume smells wonderful regardless. Go figure.

    BTW: I think this would be the perfect introduction to oud for those unfamiliar with it. Oud is a learned taste, for most people oud is somewhat repulsive on the first encounter, but after a while it becomes alluring. Think caviar LOL
