Summary: The beauty of quality oud or agarwood lies in its ability to add depth and gravitas to even the most ethereal of compositions. Nowhere is this clearly demonstrated than in Ramone Monegal's Agar Musk.
Summary: Like the opening... I like the unusually sharp, slightly astringent woodiness in opening of this fragrance. But after about an hour my nose perceives it as a linear turpentine, becoming tiresome and headache inducing for the next 8 - 10 hours. Pros: good longevity Cons: too linear"
Summary: A good fragrance with a lot of personality, basically centered over an almost aqueous (somehow transparent, at least at the beginning) agarwood/vetiver accord with hints of dustiness (may be a touch of incense and probably ambergris) and a musky final just adumbrated smoothness.
Summary: Thankfully, I can detect Oud! It has a nice presence, but the overall fragrance is too faint. The vetiver is demure. The leather is discreet. The musk is understated. Combined, the experience is underwhelming.
Summary: I would say it's a fragrance on the fresher side and while it has 3 notes that I love that make up that up leaders of this fragrance, the blend just doesn't scream out at me. It's a good fragrance but not a rock star to me and for the price...probably not.
Summary: I am a huge fan of agarwood (oud) and this doesn't disappoint. The astringent opening of oud is reminiscent of Montale Dark Aoud...but less harsh. The vetiver is present and helps blend the oud and musk. It is a very dry fragrance, which dries down to a dry oud.
Summary: A big dose of Oud and Vetiver with musk is what I'm getting in the opening. The first thing that came to mind was "this smells like a Montale". But it's not as overpowering as they can be and the ingredients seem less synthetic.
Summary: A lot like Encre noire but more sweet powder in the dry down. This scent is special and long lasting too. If you don't like sycamore or Encre noire than stay away, but, if you do like them - this takes it to another level!
Summary: Agar Musk opens with a nice transparent vetiver that is slightly nutty before the agarwood emerges in the heart of the scent and takes center stage. At first the vetiver noticeably remains with subtle spice in the early heart, but shortly afterwards the agarwood completely dominates and retains its...
