    Curious - why were these ones so popular? I see hundreds a month on my Instagram page and there are many nicer ones listed for sale on eBay from vendors with good ratings. Was it the cost?

    I just haven't found any Agarwood jewlery that looks professional enough for a man to wear in an office or on business in the US. I think most people here would just see it as a cheap bracelet made by someone's daughter at summer camp. That's obviously not what I think, but I feel like that's how they'd be viewed here. Just as a cheap bracelet.

    Now there is a business idea to make an agarwood Apple Watch strap :)
    I wear these in business meetings and sometimes can be a conversation topic to break the ice.
    BTW I heard Jack Ma CEO of aliaba wears a kyara bracelet.
    For me I smell the bracelet from time to time and has a calming effect on me. If there are any oils which smell exactly like agarwood I would rather wear those on my wrist

    Cost was $45 for the Papua $75 for the Meroke. I am in a professional environment where I meet with potential clients almost daily and wear smaller oud and sandalwood bracelets quite often.

    Waiting is the hardest part after ordering. All the best.
    I like the bracelets, except the Sandal bracelet, I was expecting a buttery/creamy smell but all i get is woody smell. Not complining, just that it wasnt what i was expecting.
    Oud Bracelet does have fragrant smell.

    For me it was mix of curiosity and a cool factor. i wanted to see/experience oud bracelet and with price offered by Adam, I couldnt let it go. Would I buy anything like it again, probably no.

    I would imagine his reputation means more to him than a quick buck

    Mine just snapped. What would be the best material to repair this ? Its just some sort of elastic to hold the beads. So when i got mine caught it just came apart.
