woody, mild cooling notes, green to purple, light jungly, aged books vanillic deep sweetness. i wouldnt call it “kinamic” like others would, but this is a unique ethereal note unique to brunei heartwood materials.
This came from one of our collaborators that has been carving pendants and beads for a long time.
I’ve always queued for her carving dust because her workshop works only with heartwood materials, rendering the dust very high quality.
the dust is fragrant and works very well in electric heating, especially if you want to have a heater i.e. golden lotus, subitism etc, heat some oud for hours, a tiny sprinkle of this coarse powder shavings/dust goes a very long way and a 20 gram pack will last for quite a while.
can also be sprinkled into tea and used for other applications. you can consider even milling it further for incense making.
