Black Agar- Agar wood is a classical material used in perfumery. When this wood is infected by certain fungi, it develops dark streaks charged with an odiferous oleoresin. The darkest grade, black or true agar, resembles black stone because of the intense impregnation of oil. This resin is highly valuable due to its rich, complex, powerful, woody-ambery scent. It is, however, an extremely expensive material that is difficult to find. This Black Agar reflects the particular scent of burning Agar wood chips. This base melts ambery, olibanum and balsamic notes.

Nice but not like real Agarwood

This has a nice slightly floral, smoky woody aroma, strength is on the mild side. However it is not too close to any of my real Agarwood Oudh oils. It will make a nice base to men's fragrances. If you are looking for a scent profile close to real Agarwood, the CO2 extract will be the better choice.
