Bakhoor are incense blends of various woods, aromatic oils, resins and flowers. These mixtures are mainly made from natural substances, although some oils are also produced artificially. (A pure rose oil, for example, is not included because of the much too high price.)
We try to procure Bakhoor that is not only comparable in name to its predecessor at the next import, but hopefully also in fragrance and overall appearance. But that is not so easy with the import from Oman. Bakhoor was originally an incense ritual practised by Bedouins in the Arab region. In the process, a mostly dark mass of compacted oudwood chips is dipped into perfume oils of incense, flowers, resins and/or sandalwood.
