This stuff is awesome. Received nice big chunks of it. The smell is like the initial top note of Maydi (Boswellia Frereana) and the bottom note of Neglecta or Rivae maybe. There is also a very slight hint of Chios in there. It doesn't ever char however instead it just keeps giving off that beautiful smell until it is done. Really good stuff, it exceeded my expectations. Don't hesitate to get some from Dan, you will like it.
Just Beautiful! It smells deep and rich, almost woodsy to me, hints of sandalwood. Very thick and sticky, clearly meant to be mixed with a carrier oil or similar, which makes me feel like this small jar will last forever. Arrived quickly, and a concern of mine handled swiftly and kindly as well. Couldn't be happier with the whole experience, thank you!
Highest quality. Beyond words. Royal and Sultan Grades of Green Hojari are exceptional and so is this distillation!!! I bought a bunch more types after this but Green Hojari is still my all-time favorite Frankincense!!!
These produce a lot of smoke when burned. A nice vaporization effect takes place rekeading tons of aroma. This stuff smells far better than our local American Pines and offers a deep and mysterious fragrance with a little muskyness and a floral pine top note. It's basically incense-grade pine resin from the "Siberian Cedar." I like this resin quite a lot. Thank you!
Second order of the Babylonian beard wax was as good as the first. Consistently high quality product that applies cleanly, with a medium (natural looking) hold, and has a pleasant smell that is not overpowering. Great product.
This rich oil was in a cream I used each morning. Now I have the opportunity to use it directly on my skin - right after applying my rose water. Just a couple of drops and it covers nicely - and I love the 'fragrance'. Always delighted with my products from this merchant.
I purchased several items from this shop, and they are all of absolutely excellent quality. This review is specifically for the Copal Blanco. I make incense for both spiritual & fun reasons and white copal is my favorite all-purpose resin, and this stuff is delicious! Sizeable, gleamy chunks that smell incredible on their own or blended with other ingredients. Shipping took a little while, but the seller is in Canada & it was well worth the wait. I also found everything to be fairly priced. Thank you, I'll definitely be back for more!!
Such a contrast to the darker Neglecta found in Dan's shop. It's camphor element extremely dialed back in comparison. Brighter, with gentle lime citrus, and a touch a vanilla-caramel sweetness when gently heated on an electric burner. Happy to have a jar of this in the library!
one of the most beautiful ambers i've ever smelled i really do have no words the depth of this amber is deep and possesses a full range of expression, light soft powdery sweet it has everything i am so grateful that dan carries this and can't wait to buy more he runs an amazing shop with the highest quality products and best shipping and service !
I just started my own apothecary, and I am so happy with AG that I've mentioned them in several product descriptions, both for sourcing ingredients and for referencing information. I want to direct people to true quality.
