    Just got home from work...
    I’ve got a stick of Gyokushodo Woodland (Mori no Sho) burning while I shower.

    If you never tried incense while showering or bathing, then you ought to try it one day:)

    I've been to the woods today collecting fragrant materials. This is what I picked out from these to burn as incense:
    rsz_img_20180925_122316.jpg
    A type of lichen, thistle (it smells wonderful, sweet and slightly indolic in the background, really strong), abies alba resin (better for burning than spruce resin as there is less smoke), fragrant wood from that same fir tree and some green resin from the same tree (the tree had a deep hole where you could get different things from different depths, the green being the innermost) and spruce resin. Together these make for a unique forest scent and when I get a distiller I will try to make a simple attar with these ingredients. Already thinking of proportions :D

    I used these as an incense mix but without spruce resin which overpowers the others and emits too much smoke.
    Surprisingly the lichen, which has but a faint scent in raw form, was the strongest aspect of the blend, so I put some away when the blend was burning to get more balance as it's fungi earthy scent (better than the oakmoss oils I smelled) overpowered the sweet resin and thistle. Will be trying a different ratio next time. A wonderful scent fills the room now. Quite different to the traditional incense I am used to yet just as beautiful.

    It’s looking delicious... :D I mean pleasantly fragrant. :) I’m glad to hear that you were able to find my beloved abies :Thumbsup:
    I’m looking forward to reading about your distillation adventure. I’m genuinely curious about the distillation of European fir resin or/and cones.

    Is that a carduus flower? How it smells when heated?

    Yes! I was so glad to find some Abies with resin! It is a unique scent, very nice, softer than spruce and behaves like frankincense in regards to how much smoke it makes. I used too little in this incense blend, next time I will use much more.

    That is indeed a carduus flower as far as I know. A bit different than the regular ones from meadows and very fragrant. The scent was surprising when I put it on charcoal, almost no burnt smell, a continuous flowery radiance, sweet with some nice aspects that remind me of green tea, works really well in a blend. I wonder if it will retain the fragrance when I dry it.

    I really really look forward to the time when I will have a distiller and will be able to try to distill all these interesting fragrances! Probably in summer. Meanwhile I'll be storing more resin and lichen and other stuff I find.

    How are your tincturing experiments going?

    Update:
    I smelled this thistle flower and RP Musk Rose - there is a resemblance here that I did not only imagine. A fresh juicy citrusy Rose smell of Musk Rose smells really close to my lovely thistle flower!

    wow @Grega that's awesome! I laughed at "hole in the tree to find stuff" - interesting :)
    I thought that lichen looked like oakmoss in the picture.

    I am burning some oud from Al Shareef's "The Scented Month" - I believe it's walla patta, filling up the room nicely. I quite like it because it's already cut and I just flatten it a bit to put on my burned. I've been using a scissors to cut other bigger pieces of wood and always end up making a mess and probably wasting some in dustings, need to find a more efficient way to slice and dice my bigger pieces

    Hehe the hole was like a treasure chest :D with some bugs crawling ;)

    It might be oakmoss but I am no expert when it comes to the classification of lichens. Just know the three major groups...

    I need to get me some agarwood chips to burn in the future.

    I use pliers to make smaller chips of my palo santo wood. Much better than scissors :Thumbsup:

    Don't worry, dearest Sproaty. It will go, and then there will be room for the better one. Consume lavishly, the way a child eat pudding. At the time, don't you see damn beautiful sheen and a naughty smile.

    Looks like I might want to try this flower myself. Hopefully I will be able to find it. I’ve seen it many times...

    There is not much change in my agarwood powder and fir cone tinctures I think, but to be honest I wasn’t much checking on them for the last 3 weeks. I have so much other new fragrant goodies now to explore. Habzoud, Al Hashimi.. and I’ve received today an incredible, kind and very generous gift from our fellow ouddict who wishes to remain anonymous, the gift contains 13 samples of different oud oils of various vendors. I did not even fully unwrapped it from the plastic foil yet I can smell the beautiful overwhelming kaleidoscope of oudiness and all sorts of mesmerizing fragrances from 2 meters away.... :):D:rolleyes:o_O:Notworthy:
    I’ve finished my electric heater yesterday too, it’s not properly decorated yet but... it’s very usable! So, I’m testing it a bit on different stuff. :Thumbsup: Temperatures here dropped to the perfect levels for olfactory adventures. In my room now temperature is 20.4 ° C and humidity 45%. :) I’m overwhelmed with the beautiful scents around me. I recently brought from the forest like 100 grams of fresh pine resin and my sweet grass - hierochloe odorata (I got around 2 months ago) now tripled or maybe even quadrupled its volume... I strongly recommend getting a pot of it. (It’ not really easy to start it from seeds, so it’s sold in pots as living plant. The scent is most strong when a fresh leaf is cut and left for drying. Even one leaf can fill a small room with the fragrance this way for weeks. But it also smells when it’s still alive in a pot, most intensively after watering or when temperature drops, or when leaves are dying or a bit damaged.) Some say on the web it smells like vanilla, some other say coconut, some other say it’s hay like scent. I say it smells like an elegant premium perfume, well much better than synthetic perfume... Think of the vast European steppe, think of the green prairie... or great grassy meadow surrounded by nothing but nature and crystal clear air. I think it deserves more presence and perhaps I will write some longer post about it soon. :Thumbsup:

    Revelation:
    Until the other day I thought the mighty awesome shah jahan is some seriously unique technique and wizardry at play to coax the scents that this oil projects in spades. A scent I had not come across before and no other oil minus maybe partially the royal lao has.

    The other day I heated a wild Assam chip curtesy of the kind generous and awesome @Alkhadra and low and behold: shah jahan clearly in high fidelity jumped out of this wood. So much so that I realized Abdullah is crafting oils like @Taha , Ie no aux notes no decoration. Purely oleoresin.

    Fhi too is identical note to the old HK sinesis wood I have been blessed to try.

    Message: contact Malik and the team at al hashimi and get as much of this wood as you can, esp if you missed out on shah jahan or like to see it for yourself.

    @Abdullah i welcome your input. I am just being a messenger of what my Nose is picking Up and my brain confirming.

    Vietnamese Incense Stick & RBO's Ceylon Oud Shavings on the Coal: And listening to Savage Garden's "I'm addicted to the madness..."! Santal whiffs and Vietnamese wafts intermingle and here I get different patterns of dancing incense-y smoke. A lofty blend of aromatic waves are there to gently fondle me.

    Mud burner and coal! Yes, it is there to complement Oud and Santal.
