This oud perfume definitely falls into the rose-oud genre of oud fragrances as opposed to leather-oud style. The rose is very subtle but flows seamlessly into the oud center of the fragrance and finishes in a fine grained wood. Summarized this is a rose incense chord built around oud. Agarwoud has an oceanic feel to me because the rose rises gently like the swell of a wave and it crests across the oud woods and slowy dissipates over the sands of sun dried amber incense. Overall the scent is rose and incense woods. Smelling Agarwoud from a foot away changes the scent into an otherworldly veil or presence of the spirit of rose as a soft gentle phantom. I like this fragrance but this one is likely to be a highly personal choice. rating 4 / 5.
