    Not sure if they are all sinking or not. I never bother trying. I have seen time and time again that sinking doesn’t necessarily mean better scent. It can be loosely generalized but not always true.

    I have Filipino wood from Agar Aura and Al Hashimi. I haven't had a chancr to burn the Al Hashimi yet so can't compare them. I never knew IO and KZ sold this wood.
    This is a pic of the Al Hashimi wood I got.

    Wow! This is the lethal combination I am addicted to. But the sequence is inverse. First Frankincense. It creates a flimsy layer on the charcoal and turns to be a sort of mica plate. Then Ceylon Sandal powder. Then Mysore granules. Then Oud. And the last one is Mysore Santal and Oud.

    Yes, Bandarban Oudwood is exquisitely spicy and less green. Hope you must have Ish's sinking grade Walla Patta. It exuds green pungent aroma, and if both Bandarban and Walla Patta chips are heated together, it will be a distinctive session.

    Good to know!!! Being new to oud and sandalwood I have always only heated one thing at a time. although had been experimenting with various frankincense, myrrh and other resins previously.
    So today was as an eye opener for me when it came together so nicely, and hearing this from someone with your experience is encouraging! Thank you!

    Seems like I missed out on Ish’s sinking Walla Patta, however did send me a sample recently with my purchase of the Pursat oil, have not tried it yet though. Also got some Cambodian Koh Kong wood that @Royalbengalouds currently has listed, smells excellent as well! (Still trying to expand my horizon with oud, and with more experience perhaps will be better able to describe and compare notes & nuances)

    Both other ones are either old purchase (kz) or private small offer (IO). I am sure if you email @Faizal_p if they have the wood will hook u up. Theirs is the one standing seperrately from the pack. Not in a bad or good way. In neutral way. Theirs has that cummingiana smell but also tons of white pepper and certain animal quality. Taha’s I find is the most floral, elegant and refined in the bunch. Kz is substantial but round. No edges and very perfumed. I like them all. Perhaps kz and Taha’s take slight edge

    I have been heating the oud chips from Al Hashimi (Philippines) for the past few days and have to say the aroma is simply beautiful and really clears the mind. A deep, dark resinous scent that is complemented with spices and an invigorating note of dark jungle green vibe. The chips are heavy with resin and wonderfully clean. Personally I really love this scent profile. For me it was also interesting to note that there is a lot of overlap between the Philippines profile and Borneo. I say this as I noticed a lot of similarities to another wonderful batch of oud chips by way of the Borneo chips from Hazoud. That said, the Borneo chips have a more prominent and refreshing green vibe that really shines and sparkles in the way that perhaps a relatively new harvest wood will do. Excellent experiences from both.

    For me they are closer to malay beccariana species. Iirc I think the two species are in fact pretty close to one another.

    Either way, yes, wonderful agarwood and quite different compare to hindi Vietnam walla ...

    Interesting you thought that dear Rasoul, I can see many parallels in scent, but even more so the density of resination that occurs in both cumingiana as well as beccariana are quite similar. Even though we call it Aquilaria Cumingiana, it's doesn't exactly fit into the Aquilara genus.

    In the past it was identified as a third genus designated as "Gyrinopsis", then later it was identified as Aquilara, after Aquilara Hirta was discovered. Comparisons were made between the two species, and they found that the perianth tube of of Cumingiana and Hirta were very similar, and that fruit grew in a similar manner on both species. Further consolidation of the Cumingiana species under the Aquilara genus occurred when comparing the number of stamens with other species (Aquilaria usually has 10, Gyrinops only 5), and as Cumingiana has 10 stamens, it made sense it'd be Aquilara...Right? Wrong :Roflmao:..

    The mature fruit of Aquilaria is usually green, while mature fruit of Gyrinops is orange/yellow. As for Cumingiana, well.. the mature fruits are brown/orange in color, but fruit color isn't a key charachteristic in taxonomy. Even Aquilaria Filaria has 10 stamens with orange fruit.

    To further add to confusion, on a genetic level, Cumingiana is a lot more closely related to Gyrinops, based on both ITS sequences (Internal transcribed spacer) as wel as trnL-trnF sequences (chloroplast).

    So.. there's Aquilaria, Gyrinops, and there used to be a third Gyrinopsis genus, guess it was for good reason. :Roflmao::Roflmao:

    As I write this I am taking a break from work (composing new songs and preparing lessons) to enjoy some rose oud ambergris bakhoor and uunsi bakhoor from Somalia. The first one especially makes the room smell gorgeous for weeks! My favorite type of Bakhoor. Ambery goodness!
    I burn it on charcoal but I wait until it becomes mostly ash before I put the incense on to avoid the burnt smell.

    Update: Wow!!! Glad i managed to get some of this! Beautiful scent, and was surprised at how much a very tiny piece at low heat can smell!!!

    All this news of kids being taken away from their illegal immigrant parents is sickening and needs to stop ASAP. The horror.

    A seated meditation sending love and peace to the folks in need plus letters to mp and mla locally to ensure this doesn’t ever happen in Canada is all I can do.

    Suradaki route I went for to set the mood and energy. Triple super Vietnam. My to go fail proof agarwood. Despite it being awesome somehow the voice in my head said To keep my energy calm and forgiving for my meditation it had to be a soothing oil. One with scent of serenity. Scent of compassion.

    Enough said. This oil deserves credit for grounding me for so long despite being in the most unmeditative frame of mind.

    Been quite busy during Ramadan so I haven't been posting but I have been burning almost exclusively KODO method. I have gotten rid of all the exacto knives and blades and now only use wood chisels for wood prep.
    Today I started with some super trat from FO then moved to several Vietnamese woods from Tony B. then followed up with some WallaPatta from IO concluding the session with some treasured wood from Nagaland that was procured many years ago from Agarscents Bazaar.
