    I'm ok with Noir Epice but not enough occasions to wear it that one can't also wear MR :(

    Re: Agarwood (oud) oil!

    Everyone on the oud board said that thaq is camboudian and kalakassi is indian. Otherwise I would have no idea, I only ever heard about them from the oud group.

    Re: Agarwood (oud) oil!

    Re: Coconut fragrance???

    Yeah CSP coco extreme comes to mind. I don't wear mine anymore though, I don't like smelling like a pina colada. A lot of people like it though but my nose has gotten too sensitive to the sweetness.
