The day had come. After months of hard work and going back and forth with ideas & scenarios, the first Agar Janwar oud perfume, built on a joint collaboration with Jinx smells & AbuOud; was finally complete and ready to be released into the world. The scent itself was unlike anything anyone had ever experienced before: a full-bodied blend of Maharaja’s leather, spikenard spiced with mint, and a deep black ambergris profile, all of which reminded me of SQ Oud shavings acquired from an acquaintance of the Omani palace burning on low heat on the sub, . It was a royalty fragrance indeed - but its creator knew that this bold combination would make it stand out from all other perfumes on the market.
The journey towards crafting Agar Janwar hadn’t been easy - but in the end it had been worth every bit of effort put into it. The moment the mist crashed on to my skin, akin to a wave of ambergris crashing ashore - on a tropical island; the moment was captivating and had me embezzled; clearly the Janwar in the Agar had found a place in my hearts! No iterations or adjustments needed, the house of Jinx Smells knew exactly what they (he) were doing.
Little did i know that this was only just beginning – as the beast started to get to the heart it brought even more excitement and adventure from the orris! A blooming effect, witch was subdued by the caffeine in this Sharbat. I finally started to taste Tambacu(tobbaco), a note i particularly fancied in almost everything and anything, was prominent but behind the curtain like a celebrities presence back stage.
