    Default Info Please on Mysterious Velvety Pyramid of Oud Powder?

    Hi all, I chanced upon this interesting hinged velvet pyramid today in my travels and recognised with delight what I took to be a strong oud note emanating from it. It was cheap so I bought it at once. Is this resinous oud powder? If so, what do I do with it other than sniff the bottle with joy? Any info on the manufacturer and the text on the box would be very gratefully received too!
    Many thanks in advance,
    Ralph

    The manufacturer is Arabian Oud. Don’t have any other info.

    I'm wondering if it is Bakhoor.

    What is a Bakhoor?
    * "Bukhoor or Bakhoor (Arabic بخور) is the Arabic name given to scented bricks or a blend of natural traditional ingredients, mainly woodchips (Oudh the Arabic name for Agarwood/Aloeswood) soaked in fragrant oils and mixed with other natural ingredients (resin, ambergris, musk, sandalwood , essential oils and others).

    You can heat it with an electric or charcoal burner and it will fill a room like incense but with less smoke if it's done correctly. Lots of tutorials on the net and on YouTube.

    This should be a good electric heater if you are interested:

    There are many others as well and the charcoal burner option too.

    Thank you, evogel, that seems entirely possible. My wife initially identified a strong rose note more than pure oud and while I wasn't sure at first I can see that that's probably right. It reminds me a bit of things like Montale's rose/oud fragrances. Thanks for the link to heaters too, I'll check that out.

    MA’AJON Al-Arabia, 56g BAKHOOR by ARABIAN OUD.

    "This bakhoor combines Malaysian Oud with Amber, Roses and Musk to create a luxurious blend."

    Sure does. Smells wonderful.
