Stoked. Looking forward to ALL of them. And surely I’ll snag a bit of the filipino wood.
As advertised. Impeccably cleaned. Ooooold formation. Virtually zero wood left on these nugs. Pure hardened oleoresin. Aroma is familiar but refined. Top top stuff. does best with monkoh style heating. Best part is some filipino woods have a dampness and a teipicalness to them which while it can be nice at times is distracting to me. Not here. But also then again even pinoy ltd wood didn’t have this damp/wet profile I have seen in few other offerings elsewhere.
Port Moresby - I was lucky enough to get my hands on a solid piece and let me tell you, this is one of my favorites. I just love the jungly, forest, green on low heat that transforms to a very pleasant spice - I get cinnamon - as the initial notes pass and the heater begs to be increased. It was the latter that inspired me to seek out a very special piece and now I cringe every time I dig into my jar to shave off another piece for the burner.
Brunei Nirvana - soil agarwood, truly wild and filled with a genuinely creamy spice that keeps me coming back for more!
A tiny piece of Alshareef´s Lubaan, which is a very good frakincense. Then a sliver or two of Ceram Sinking. Blissed out...
What better way to celebrate the New Moon than with an abundant fumigation of Mastic gum? The cool, clean, slightly wet-smelling scent is an ideal representation of Earth´s nightly consort.
