Burns evenly and that makes it 5 stars!
Alhamdulill_h, absolutely thrilled to be using these wonderful charcoals for burning oud and frankincense. I would recommend buying these charcoals through Oudimentary to ensure you are getting some of the best quality charcoal for your fumigating needs. :)
Great charcoal to burn oud, most other brands don’t burn as well but this one lasts long and doesnt give off the charcoal scent when burning oud. Glad I purchased!
Easy to use!
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.
This was my first foray into burning raw oud, and I couldn't be more pleased. It's been quite the journey discovering the distinct fragrances of each type of wood included in the sampler. I'll definitely be purchasing more of my favorites (along with some oils) very soon!
I know Oud since childhood through my mother who regularly burn Oud in the living room and kitchen. A friend of my recommended me Oudimentary, and now I’m a fan Al hamdoelilah 🤲
First the picture is deceiving. It would imply there are several pieces per type. Some bags only had one piece. There was no instruction how to use. The bark scent was not pleasant
Thanks for your feedback Susan. We will be including 'how to' cards in future orders for new customers. There is also a how to burn section and video on our site that gives you a step by step. The wood is weighed to 1 gram and the size and pieces are relative to the size and depth of wood.Lastly we are sorry to hear you are disappointed. Please let us know if we can help. - Oudimentary Team
I've never burned raw oud before so the sampler was absolutely perfect for me. It's been so interesting and unexpected to see the types I liked best. The variety and quality was incredible. So happy with Oudimentary, already placed a second order.
I am amazed at how generous oudimentary is with the samples so many different kinds of oud to try. My home is filled with the scent of oud. I love it!
The wait was well worth it! This is by far an amazing wood to burn anytime. The subtle sweet and earthy tones really lighten a space and bring joy as well as smoothness to my day when burning.
First Oud burnable and I must say that I choose wisely. The importance of type of charcoal used cannot be understated. Stay away from the common type you may find readily available. I also use a mica plate with great results after a friend's recommendation. Hints of pepper, leather, and tobacco linger well after the burn has completed.
Received my order in Australia nice and quick, first time burner of raw oud chips so I was a bit too impatient and burnt the chip too quickly. I love the cambodian oud, although I thought the burn would last a little longer but absolutely happy with my purchase,I also purchased the raw oud sampler but haven't tried the other ouds as yet.
I like the burner but kyoto soul was not for me i didn't like the smell of it
The starter kit was great! I just thought we were supposed to get tongs with it but there weren't any in the box!
thank you for your patience. burning the super assam brought memories of dear brother who recently passed away. may he be blessed in the gardens of felicity. thank you for the quality of the wood and the customer service.
I've been looking for some good Hindi chips for fumigating and these are it. Quality and a great price! Definitely recommended.
Such an amazing bukhoor (agarwood) I used it for Ramadan after buying the samples I actually rated it on a peace of paper (according to how much my family liked ) and how smokey vs resin scent when burned. This one was everyone's favorite! It's so good I went and bought 12 gram Malaysian and I am in love with it. It reminded me when I was a kid in the middle east in the Gulf rwgion with my family enjoying weekend with my relatives, beautiful scent
I also want to send my condolences he created such a beautiful brand that made it easy for people to enjoy the scent of heaven and I pray he is enjoying the scent of heaven now. RIP
I was optimistic as I really enjoy the subtle aroma of oud. But the quantity and quality were poor (ie, small amount and not pleasantly aromatic).
One of my favorites to burn. Quality scent!
The quality of the burner was substandard. The stain was not even and the part in which the coal sits is not adequately ventilated for the coal to burn properly. Disappointed
