The top here shows flower buds still to open. The central area those which have opened, and near the bottom and more spread-out are those that are turning to fruit.
The stems are said to be more leafy than those of Agrimony - but unfortunately there seem to be no photos of the leaves, apart from those which are grossly out of focus on the bottom left half of this photo.

As-yet unopened flowers at the top and fully opened ones below. They have 5 yellow petals and about 10 long yellow filamens with small yellow stamens atop (or brown on older ones a bit lower down).
The 5 green sepals behind the 5 petals are shorter than the petals (best seen near the bottom of the photo).

At the top are florets which are about to open up with their sepals still wrapped around them. Around the sepal cups are a set of shortish inwardly-hooked hairs. Just beneath each sepal cups is a long green hairy bract sticking outwards.
Fragrant Agrimony is usually more robust that Agrimony.
At the bottom are spent flowers with their petals having departed and now are displaying they 5 green sepals . The between 5 and 20 stamens each flower and the central style are still attached.

Most hairs are usually ≥ or equal (≥) 2mm long. Glandular hairs are more frequent on Fragrant Agrimony - which is why they smell more fragrantly.

The sepal cups of Fragrant Agrimony have a broader shape than those on Agrimony.
