    Hello Community,

    I see that Ensar has posted a generous discount on the website. I'm definitely purchasing a bottle of Satori Fusho, but I want to pick up one of two other items. Does anyone have a recommendation on whether I should get Pinoy Privee or the Kinam Incense?

    Now I know the two options are very different. I really enjoy heating wood or burning incense, but I've never experienced Filipino wood or Kinam Incense so I'm a bit lost.

    Many thanks and have a great day,
    Anthony

    Ideally...get both
    but for now, go with the Pinoy Privée

    My reasoning is that Kinam and Kyara are readily available, but fine Filipino aloes is not, in fact,
    I don’t know where to get wood similar to
    Pinoy Privée if my life depended on it.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m an incense lover to the bone!
    I haven’t tried the Kinam incense, but even at that,
    since most of us have to prioritize our purchases,
    anyone who puts heating aloes on their radar,
    should plot their coordinates straight towards Pinoy Privée;)

    Thank you very much Oudamberlove. That's the way I was leaning, but I definitely appreciate your thoughts and confirmation!

    And.....WOW! This wood is amazing! My first glance was “looks ok”, closer inspection “actually looks pretty nice”, then on the heater...now I get IT. Thank you to Oudamberlove and Rasoul for the feedback, and many thanks to Ensar for offering this wood. My honest first impression was I need to order more ASAP. Great wood at more than fair price.

    Try some of the other woods as well, you will likely be pleasantly surprised! My fav in the woods page right now are the Sinking Adams Peak - very rich and full of olfactory pleasure - loud too, the scent carries well from this wood - although a bit more expensive ;-)
