When burning oud on an electric heater, how close do you sit to it? I've not had the best experience of burning any oud yet, everything always smells a bit charred, smokey and smouldering. I sit quite close to the burner. Just now, I had a small chip on the heater and went in the shower, leaving it on. Coming back into my living room I was greeted with an amazing smell from over 12-15 foot away where my burner is! Could this be the reason why I've not enjoyed it so far - smelling it too closely, actually inhaling the vapour sometimes? I've tried altering the heat (it's a 12V burner) and using a lower temperature didn't seem to remove the burned smell. Strangely, I absolutely adore sandalwood when used close up, it gives off that delicious creamy smell. I've also got frankincense, myrrh, opponax, styrax and benzoin - perhaps I'll test these from a distance too.
