    Shoyeido Translucent Path

    What a fabulous name for an incense,
    through the power of suggestion I feel like I’m nearing enlightenment when I am in it’s smoke cloud:Roflmao::Roflmao:

    But seriously :Cautious:
    I like the composition, a green oil Kyara likeness, which I confirmed when I opened my envelope of Shoyeido Kyara. My first thought was... “did they apply the Translucent Path perfume to these granules?”

    Some say it’s overkill, too much aroma, that it’s not true to the scent of heated Kyara chips, and I’ll grant them that. I don’t think the goal of the Blender was to capture that scent, instead, I think they were after the top notes of raw room temperature green oil kyara. At least that’s my guess.

    I think I’ll finally open the pack I have had for years and light up a stick...

    How long have you had it without burning it? It’s bought to be enjoyed and transcend you’re thoughts. You don’t get that if left unburned.

    I’m a bit of a hoarder by nature and like to look at the box. :Roflmao:

    Having said that, I’ve given two sticks away so go figure :Unsure: I don’t understand myself.

    So you’re generous to others but not yourself. Treat yourself tonight.

    Relaxing to Shoyeido Ga-ho

    The agarwood in this stick reminds me of Kohgen’s Jinkai.

    At Kohgen, they state that there is Jinkai, Jinkyo, and Hondoro.
    Jinkai, Hondoro, and Kyara are the rarest.

    I tried their Jinkai in stick form, but I wish I had the chance to try Jinkai and Hondoro chips.

    I searched for any information on Hondoro, even at Kyarazen, but I came up empty.

    An intense, focused, in depth study of southern Indonesian wood: Png and surrounding.

    Ceram/seram
    3 samples. Two grade offering drom Ensar. One taha. All three have the same dna and more or less similar. Orris butter. Powdery delicate lactic purple lilac florals. Enough said. Prettiest in the most innocent way kind of scent That i have experienced to date.

    Jaya96
    Zero sweetness. Zero damp. Zero spice. Zero fruit. Just oudy incensy bitter raw deep dark green. Stark. All base. No top note.

    Bois iris
    Spicy. Very spicy. Medium green profile with darker iris notes. More iris absolute

    Port moresbey privee
    The best and the most balanced of all the before and coming woods in This post. Each dust of it unleashes a whole world. Scent of a A 100 thousand acre forest concentrated in something the size of a chickpea. I run my micro saw over it two three times and I gather the dust. Tiny bit. Puny. And in the ceram heater at 120-150 it goes. And baaaaam. Magic.

    Kz papua
    Good. Simple. One of the rare lesser quality woods from respected Kz.

    Feel oud vsi
    Sumatra wood. Spicy. Herbal. Sharp terpy but intriguing and inquisitive. Good find. Good buy. Doubt any is left but I would contact Adam. Price I don’t recall except that I remember clearly it was a great relative bargain. Meaning better than a good deal.

    Private source aceh wood
    Best of the best. Ancient heartwood pieces. Crayon looking. No sign of wood left. Pure resin. Scent is adam’s VSI x3 but far deeper and richer. Kinam level of volume. It is wood of Thai grade that is done and spoken for. For most part. I have had to sift they lots of meh or flat out garbage wood to find ones like this. It’s expensive. Crazy hobby. I have easily accrued 3k worth of oud related products that are one way or another end up straight to garbage can: heavily tampered with wood. Painted. Glued. Polished. Filled with metal. Completely oxidized oils. Oils that weren’t even cured before shipping and they contained water. The water was sealed in bottle. It starts decomposing and leaving a nasty scent in the bottle/oil. Rotten flower scent. Decaying vegetation going slimy. Anyways. List is long.

    Papuya 02
    Small grain size granules. Some bigger. Some smaller. Mixed grade. Mix scent. Different grains size pieces have different scent from other pieces. I decided to grind the whole batch. The powder now is beyond what I would have wildly wished for. It is absolutely terrific. A total complete medium green floral spicy vegetal earthy yet pretty and some sweet notes. Similarly priced to ensure nha trsng anthole but this wood is much better. Objectively and subjectively speaking. If you haven’t, giddy up. But don’t forget I strongly recommend heating the powders after processing the entire batch.

    That’s all she wrote.

    Incense Ingredients: Raw Musk Grains, Ambergris, Persian Saffron, Spikenard, Mastic Gum (nowadays I prefer Mastic to Frankincense), Santal Oil: Ground the ingredients once and left them in the jar for six months. Today I decided to bask in divine fragrances.
    Divine 1.jpg

    Aluminium foil on the red hot coal to enjoy the delicate nuances of aroma. I sprinkled Mysore Santal powder around as well.
    Divine 2.jpg

    After thirty minutes, poured the incense on the coal. This is my favourite time when the whole house is into the OSCENT. It would last for a long time.

    After the session, I myself smell Musk Saffron, and Santal.

    Now life is complete!


    Stay fragrant!
