Disappointed as I wasnt aware the Oud was going to be ground so fine. I thought it was going to be Oud pieces.
Wicked chips - nevermind that they are gyrinops - at a price which let's you put them straight to the coal guilt free. Great for personal fumigation...and fumigating a room as they retain a nice clean scent profile even when burnt. Other chips reserved for Mon Koh sometimes can smell heavyily burnt and acrid but not these. On mica they smell grassy and earthy with cocoa powder nuances, they have a smooth and creamy scent like sandalwood. When fumigated they leave a rich and nutty scent, clean in profile, less like camp fire and more like and combo of smoked oud, coffee, and chocolate. Rich, deep and surprisingly light, they are so great for layering with oudimentary's oud oils.
The East Indonesian oud wood is very pleasant to smell. This is one of the first oud woods I've purchased, and I couldn't be happier with the smell it leaves.
First off, I would strongly advise using an electric incense burner with this Oud. When burnt over charcoal, its a little harder to truly appreciate the delicious fragrance notes. With an electric burner, this food quickly fills the room with the delicious scent of chocolate and leather. I find this Oud to be very clarifying for the mind and soothing to the soul. Its perfect for cozying up in bed and reading.
