No.10 White Oud was released in 2014 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Agonist. It is an oriental.
As is usual for Agonist, the packaging tells the buyer each note that resides within. The box shows a large 10 for the commemoration of the ten years of business.
Opening notes: Ylang-ylang and lily of the valley.
Middle notes: May rose, violet, patchouli and tonka bean.
Base notes: White musk, cypriol, woody notes and amber
Smooth, warm, and softly spicy, this woody oriental is a delightful treat. It is much cleaner than the average oriental, and it manages to feel fresh and alive. I think it is because of the quality of the white musk, that it dispenses with any ‘dirty’ elements, and gives a pure vibe.
Occasions: Good for informal evenings.
Rating: Silver medal.
Price: Very expensive.
