    Dr. Incense Processed Merauke.

    This was has a lot of sentimental value for me. I get dark chocolate/cacao, roasted coffee vibe.
    I have never heated wood from merauke. So, can not really judge how close this stick smells but this is a wonderful stick in my opinion. Just like a smooth, and a bit bitter dark chocolate.

    Craft Incense - Ocean’s Gold.

    I really dig this composition. It’s a shame my single pack is about to be burned up. I can’t get enough of this stuff. I do enjoy the reaction my clients have when I burn this in the studio. Some love it and others think it’s repulsive.

    I like that stick too.
    I recently tried dipping sticks in strong Ambergris tincture and letting them try before lighting. It adds a layer of incense induced tranquility. Give it a try when you are on your own, not with the clients. If you know what I mean! That oomph is not for everybody.;)
    I think somebody on here suggested doing so. I don't remember who exactly.

    PS: Ambergris used for the tincture was grey but added a tiny bit of brown grade to add that depth.

    Nice marriage of agarwood and aromatics,
    with an equally nice low temp delivery
    ........no charcoal binder here.

    Baieido - Kaden Kobunboku
    Spicy, sweet, bitter, creamy scent.
    I love this incense. it's very affordable, but the quality is very good.
    I don't deny small artisans like Ken, Dr.incense, RPP makes really great high-quality incense, but Baieido really trumps them on a low budget level incense.

    Tongan Sandalwood by KZ.

    Is it S. Austracaledonicum ? or S. Yasi ? It smells Santalum Album to me.
    I have more than two dozen sandalwood incenses, all from different regions, different grades, different techniques. They all are so similar, yet so distinctive. Each one has a unique character. Some are more terpene like, some are buttery-fatty while others exhibit powdery aroma.
    This is all so alluring.

    This stick is surely up there on raw materials, composition on ratio of Makko, coal and agarwood content...

    The stick gives green, mineral notes and once it goes it leaves a trail of vanillic woody note in the room.

    Ken’s Ambon stick

    I’m still wondering how it is so aromatic.
    Someone who bought a chunk of this wood
    remarked that it was oudh on steroids:D

    I’m getting excited for his next release. I have his Brunei/Tarakan sticks and I really enjoy how heavy and dark they are.

    make sure that you order within the first few minutes of the launch. You’ll get a passcode and once launch time hits most of the more intricate Oud/ambergris/artisinal stuff sells out within 10 minutes while other scents might stick around for an hour or two.

    I feel like they struck the right balance between other aromatics and agarwood in this stick. Hence, the name, "Refinement".
