    too many to single out. depends what mood im in and how im feeling. sometimes even the weather.
    kyara, hindi, sri lankan, viet, hanaian, sasora (some chunks i have), list goes on and on. it would be like picking out only one oud to use forever and ever!!! :eek::eek::eek:

    i think everyone will have their own personal favourites. if you smell/burn enough good quality wood, the differences will be very very clear.

    I really enjoy woods from all over as long as they are on low heat. I do love burmese, vietnamese and sri lankan they are unique and smell wonderful

    Difficult to decide :(
    Mon Koh brings out delicate notes, but it's also nice to walk into a room and know that someone's been fumigating:)

    JazaakAllahu kheir brother thank you soooo much!..... I've never seen any generosity on any forum close to this one.

    Makes me wonder: is it that oud makes people generous or is it that ouddicts are generous by the same nature that makes them ouddicts?

    My favorite woods tend to be gyrinops.

    I'd say my favorite is Vietnamese, but when I burn something else I immediately become a fanboy of that. They are all so wonderful. I also like gyrinops. I have some that smells somewhat like sweetgrass when burnt. Walla patta is pretty unusual and cool. I detect a clove-like note in it sometimes.

    Now I have to focus more on wood than oil for a while :')

    I really want to see the difference between different wood from different regions
