The first tip to identify real agarwood bracelet vs fake agarwood bracelet is at the normal temperature. The smell of real agarwood bracelet is always weaker than the smell of the fake agarwood bracelet. You can only smell the sweet, comfort, delicate and gentle of a real bracelet when you keep it close your nose because of natural oud oil scent inside the wood.
