    Russian Adam's Maroke Life wood on a subitism. This wood seems good for fumigating. Not the most resinated wood but a good scent profile at a great price. Can't beat $3.50/ gr.

    Got some Sri Lankan sandalwood from RBO on the heater. Ish was kind enough to include a sample with my purchase, but I think I’m certainly going to be purchasing some! Doesn’t have the Mysore spicy notes, but still a beatiful sandal scent, also the shavings require no prep, perfect for electric heaters. Thanks @Royalbengalouds !

    Kyarazen incense sticks : Central Cambodia, Malaysia classic, Eight milleniums, Ambergris

    All were wonderful, I find it hard to isolate the notes but i did get a hint of saltyness and musk in the ambergris stick. Eight Milleniums has a real exotic and more of an incense blend scent ,with the quality that kyarazen always delivers ; all have that beautiful deep oudy base underneath it. Malaysia classic more of a sweet agarwood scent and Cambodia a bit darker smelling like the wood chips themselves. I also received a sample stick with the word Assam on it. A bit less refined than Cambodia but the effects on the mind was the most intense of all . I had trouble standing up! lol

    The Kalalkassi sample was divine of really high quality, i was not so fond of Al-Ghaliya, but that is a matter of taste. I can really smell the taif rose and i don't like the smell of rose in attars. I do appreciate the blend itself as it contains that kalakassi base ambergris misk sandalwood oil and others….

    Kyarazen and company have done a real good job and i totally recommend them if Quality and exellence is important to you!

    If possible, try KZ's incense on his subitism style burner. You'll love them even more! :)

    Found a piece of Filipino Oud with a hole in it. So I put a piece of Hojari Frankincense in it, then let it slowly burn.. :Inlove:

    @Alkhadra how is your socotran franckincense ? Once @hedycent sent me some, it As quite dark and honestly it's the best franckincense I smelt instead of citrus you get orange peel. If I find a good lot of this one, I'd certainly put it on the store for people, for me better than green hojari, all royal grades ect ect ...

    I was actually just telling a friend of mine how socotran frankincense is the best ever I've tried, it's so beautiful. Agreed 100% on the orange peel.

    I have to say I also agree that it's better than hojari, I think Hojari Frankincense is like Hindi Oud. The most famous and recognizable, but not necessarily the best.

    I only burnt hojari this time because I'm out of Socotran. :Unsure:

    My first burn with mica sheets..
    i tried frankincense first and then put on some cinnamon +tonka powder .
    aromas were sweet / but it took quite sometime to fill the room .
    Pleasant experience i would say ;
    will try more combos going forward. :) 1528258779772.jpg


    PS> i tried the same combo on charcoal directly . Everything burned so fast and so much fumes. Nothing sweet about it.

    Sounds lovely! What type of frankincense did you use? Oh, and how does Tonka powder smell burning? :Whistling:

    tonka powder on coal is no good (by experience) / the heat is too much .
    It has a sweet aroma given some heat . It is a substitute for vanilla in food recipes.
    frankincense is normal grade (got from turkey)
    i am just a beginner so i m not into high grade ingredients yet.

    Tibetan Incense (RBO) and Vietnamese Incense Sticks: After a pretty long time, incense stick is here to get mesmerized. Ish gifted me some Tibetan Incense. The ancient Lamai meditation oriented culture is there in each waft. Serenity is what is infused in these Incense Sticks. Before lighting a stick up, I was of the view that the aroma is more than sharp, but when it started burning, it was all collective calmness of Lamas that was there.

    Just after burning Tibetan Incense, I tried a Vietnamese Incense stick as well. Soft and silky. But the olfactorial bliss was present in Tibetan Incense is classical.

    comparing the filipina wood from alhashimi, IO, KZ and Taha (AA):

    the only one sticking out as radically different is the one from IO. not so much in visual but scent. the scent is easily the most animal wood i have come across. is like heating white peppercorn. barny, animal, horse, and funk. there is a delicious sweetness running thru that keeps the funk in check and adds to the intrigue. not one for quiet (kodo) listening but one for scenting the room and smelling from afar. lingers forever.

    other three sources despite quite different looking wood ( taha's all kyen and oil with no real resin vs non resin part/ al hashimi mix of resin and oil/ KZ fossilized looking and gnarly and old.) have very similar scent. nectars, forest honey and other darker honey, sweets, very very perfumy and delicious gourmand scent. quite powerful in its scent too.

    will share pics tonight.

    Wowwy! I'd really love to see photos if you could dear Rasoul! Especially of the fossilized KZ one. Sounds interesting. :Whistling:

    It is very powerful delicious stuff, sometimes getting so fragrant you can almost taste it. I like to describe Filipino Oud as having an Umami flavor to it, quite savory.

    recent KZ incense purchase impressions:

    Mon-Koh
    spectacular. the very essence of agarwood. little smoke. can be brought virtually right up to the nose without any acrid notes or burn. i sense some gyrinops/papuan quality at play. lets just say Indonesia profile. i wasn't able to verify this, so its just my educated hunch.

    haru-ro dew of spring
    need more time with this. nothing really jumping at me, other than the fact that this incense is less about aloes or sandal and more about other extracts, spices, etc. it didnt leave a great or bad first impression. kinda neutral. more on this later.

    sultans shadow
    this is a wow incense. rich aloes. salty/sweet/powdery ambergris. hint of animal (from must and ambergris i guess) underneath floral and other sweet/spicy resinous notes. a whole perfume in smoke form. wow. special stuff indeed.

    ambergris
    a blend of aloes, ambergris and misk. all 3 of these are also part of sultans shadow. but in contrast, the ambergris incense from KZ is much more oceanic, sea spray, touch animal (was expecting more funk and animale qualities). sweet but more along the lines of making or slightly burning caramel and molasses. a great scent from a far as well as relative close distance. belly height. no closer.

    clear mind
    10% baltic ambergris and as per KZ the most bitter scent he has made to date.
    well, bitter it is. almost like burning wires. is harsh and over the top close by, but the lingering scent is beguiling and addictive. i see similarities with myu-jyo but more so the gandasara. to my nose the note that jumps out clearly adn dominantly is that of fenugreek seeds. but i have verified this with KZ and there is NONE of it actually used. so it must either be a combo of other notes that makes me think fenugreek or shared compound in it with another. sotolon is the main curry leaf-esque compound that makes fenugreek, well fenugreek.

    loved reading your reviews, mon koh incense sure sounds interesting, the best of both worlds, convenience of a stick and the quality of a mon- koh session

    @Rasoul Salehi So all of these are “sinking grade”? I’m still new, so please excuse my ignorance...
    Waiting on mine from Al Hashimi, looking forward to trying wood from a new region!

    Staying relevant to the thread: on the heater righter now, started with a couple tiny pieces of Bandarban wood (thanks to @Royalbengalouds), added a bit of Indian sandalwood powder and then a piece of Hojari frankincense...and it smells amazing! Not planned, just felt like experimenting...lol
