    in anticipation of receiving the filipina no 1 oil in near future I thought I revisit the wood.

    Compelling. Special. You know you are in presence of something great when you go nice and slow and then go high heat for few seconds then back down. So much going on. Terra Rosa clay. Manuka honey. Clean and mostly dry forest floor. Old leatherback anqitue book. I don’t know why but first time ever I am getting ambergris notes here. A very silver border white piece. Remarkable. Pretty high price and not one I would back up the truck for but wish I had a bit more. Few grams more even.

    Damn bugger is out though. How do we get Taha to go back and get more filipina wood?
    In meantime, He who has been hoarding lots of this pretty pls dm me for a purchase ;)

    I am also eagerly wanting to try this special once in a lifetime wood. Couldn’t get it when it was listed for sale. :(

    I am very sorry to every brother and sister on this earth that reads this and is mad at me but i still love you anyway but what i read has made me sick to my stomach i mean the people who go into the jungle to risk the life and not go back to the family that is waiting for the support they deserve should make the wood cheaper to buy?

    My friend in Dubai has Filipino wood. He has sent me a small chip to try. He says it's unique. Some are crazy a bout the aroma, some not. Let's see how it turns out. Would someone please tell me which Aquilaria subtype are we looking at here ? Thank you.

    You are more than welcome to visit me at Singapore! And best of all, you can meet up with Ensar at the same time and be swiped with his latest unreleased oils!
