I've been experimenting with incense mixtures for cordless / extruded type incense. Using a makko base... Blending patchouli, haisoko, reiryoko, Kunroku, borneol, frankincense, sandalwood, aloeswood... I get decent results but always a little rough. I just burned a sample of a stick from kyarazen - just amazingly fresh scent. Not kyara, but the kind of oud I think people get confused with kyara - a very sweet clean balanced oud scent that reminds me of high end shoyeido sticks. Anyway, if anyone has any recipes or experiences to share, I'd be interested!
