    Re: Agar Aura - Official discussion thread

    Was the bottle neck sealed with Teflon tape of sort? or did the leak occur directly out of the nozzle? Yea that's a $500 evaporated, sorry you have to experience this.

    That leak is quite severe, I'm sure Taha would take care of it for you. That box must smell amazing!

    Been eating different strains of Durians for over 40 years, when we were kids we even had a few Durian trees at my dad's farm. Very curious how it would smell like in the Santal Galore for sure.
