    Sweet stuff, that I would prefer to fumigate
    rather than close listening.

    Heating woods can be quite the adventure! I've found that many woods will handle a varying degree of heat - it is a bit subjective to your preference and your nose. Typically there are two camps, oil heavy or resin heavy - oil heavy woods will prefer lower heat because the oil is fragile and can burn easily which could ruin the experience. Use your instinct as you slowly increase your heat setting keeping your nose close to detect when the oils begin to release their scent. Keep in mind that a physically larger piece of wood will undoubtedly require higher heat setting than slivers or even shavings of the same wood. I like to use wire cutters to split woods along the grain to create slivers that heat quite nicely on the subitism.

    I typically heat ultra high grade agarwood - you can see below that the size of the slivers on my heater are quite small. The mica plates I use are 19x24mm for sizing reference. The scent that comes from these pieces is unique, exotic and specific - Borneo Kinam if I recall - quite the ride despite the small size.

    Andrew Salkin it's aboud time!

    Olde hinde - from what I understand, a king grade private ensar offering - smells awesome and cool to get a clear picture of what Hindi wood used to smell like back in the day.

    Also surriankah wood ; also an ensar offering.

    Royal baram - so cool

    And castle ; yet again same deal. But really fun milkshake thing going on upfront!

    Big thanks to @KodoKing who seems to have a never ending supply of ultra rare and high grade woods.

    One of my all time favorites
    One that burn very often almost daily
  11. Thank you SO MUCH. I just heated some premium Bangladeshi wood from JK and it burst into flames, so I’m guessing Taha’s Gen3 pump method is NOT RIGHT for this particular batch. Haha

    ken's From out the depths stick. Has a nice oceanic/earthy scent due to the ambergris. Also, a soft grenn bitterness due to the nha trang portion.
    Very nice!
