    Mongolian Musk Grains: These grains are from hundred per cent authentic source; so, these grains would be my yardstick to measure other Mongolian Musk grains.

    Vietnam NhaTrang Black Kinam Bracelet... 16mm 30.3g

    The vendor says it’s 90% sinking (might have translated it wrong since it’s in chinese)
    Won’t be purchasing other stuff for a while lolol

    So far all my wood purchases from this vendor has been great - been waiting to pull the trigger on this one - and it happened to be the ‘Chinese Black Friday’ which doesn’t happen on a Friday - but every year on the 11th Nov. fingers crossed

    I was anxiously anticipating to score some incense from 2088tea today, I waited many days, and many hours just to come away empty handed.

    It was frustrating because the site had problems. I couldn’t get into the cart, and when the time expired, the items were removed from my cart, including other items that I didn’t even send to cart.

    What a mess!
    My first reaction was to be frustrated at KZ as well, but then when I thought about it, it’s not his fault at all, and he is most likely concerned about the “mess”, and surely wishes that it won’t be that way.

    He simply wants to share his craft with others, and could never anticipate such a high demand, which in turn puts too much traffic onto the website.

    KZ is very understanding, so I hope that others who didn’t get any, of the already limited incense, will be equally understanding towards him.

    I had the same frustrating experience...although I added a bunch of incenses to my cart...I couldn't check out as the cart kept giving an error message. Was really hoping to score some WSG incenses! Oh well.

    His process is maddening. Twice in the past I was able to score a decent haul of incense from KZ. The secret I found was to only put a couple of items in the cart at a time and pay. I would end up putting with like 4 orders but he would refund me for the extra shipping I paid and combined the shipment. If you put too many items in the cart and even one gets sold then it give you an error. It is maddening because you put items in your cart and go to checkout and then it goes out of stock. I wish there was a better way.
    I totally forgot about the sale this morning because I was at work so I didn't get to try.

    Awesome score. Well done. I have a pair as well and the s net is delicate but profound. Putting it back in a bag and taking out after a while and giving it a good sniff is also a fun experience

    I too had the same problem this morning but after 20 minutes and 3 separate purchases managed to get 3 out of 4 incenses I had my eye on.

    It is what it is. I know Kyarazen is actively looking for a solution. And if kz is reading this I humbly think limiting order quantity per item to max of one per person (easy generic function behind all e commerce sites) is the first start to the solution.

    In meantime we love what he and his team do. We will remain supportive and we will do what brothers and sisters do in a community. Support the one that has taken on the life of dedication to agarwood. Not full time anymore but still considerable. Much respect.

    Just out of curiosity... how often do you wear your bracelet, and how long do u rest it in between wears? My bracelet vendor said I should give the bracelet a rest every couple of days for 1-3 days... and if possible, I should wear white gloves (like the ones they use at the jewelers) to play/polish it semi-frequently for 30 mins or so per day.

    Beautiful!
    It seems like Oud Neptune with 14 Oud Moons (Beads). But rings are the Martian Rings.
