    It is a tincture in perfumer’s alcohol.

    In high concentrations the musk does indeed have a sharpness to it when burned, dare I say magic marker:Roflmao::Roflmao:, but not exactly.

    When used in incense , I find that hyraceum smells more like deer musk raw grains than deer musk itself:confused:, but that is with the one and only batch of hyraceum that I have tried, another batch from a different source is on it’s way, and I shall compare the two.

    Well, last month I made incense and used Muskroot, and made dough in honey. When heated, Muskroot smelt highly masculine and strong in there. I already have replaced frankincense with mastic. And Saffron is an integral part of incense I make.

    Second, nowadays, I am heating loose incense. It is to be experienced.

    Thanks for writing about hyraceum.

    Tarakan is good stuff!

    @Andrew Salkin
    I haven’t tried the Tarakan wood,
    but to play safe, go for both wood and sticks:D

    Fired up my latest stick.
    Extruded not hand rolled.

    Nippon Kodo Sizuro Vietnamese Granules
    Tragacanth Gum

    The result:
    As good as it gets!
    The recipe is plain and simple,
    but you do need good agarwood for good results.

    The charcoal facilitates a wider scent spectrum,
    with less binder notes than makko, so for now,
    I see it fit for agarwood sticks mainly, but for sandalwood and blends I am not sure,
    I have a guess that certain recipes will benefit from the use of makko instead.
