When it comes to Chinese and Japanese
incenses, the agarwood + sandalwood combo is a match made
in heaven. But if you've tried blending sandalwood and oud
oils together, you already know that the
result is usually an unpleasant medley of jarring scent
Not so with Jinkoh To Byakudan.
A version 2 was a long way coming,
considering the first version was one of the most popular
Agar Aura attars of all time.
But this time its even better, boasting genuine
wild Sinesis and Crassna oud oils, as well as our
sinking-grade sandalwood distillations, Byakudan
No.1 and Tan
The opening of Jinkoh To Byakudan
displays a brilliant ethereal oudiness. Various wild oud
oils of different species were blended together to try to
achieve the "scent neutral" quality of Kyara. The bright
and clean precious Kyara-like halo hums over a deeper
woodier resinous oud, and impressively shines all the way
to the drydown. The sandalwood is not far behind. Our
genuine vintage Mysore sandalwood oils purr alongside the
oud adding a creaminess to the otherwise-rugged woodiness
of the ouds.
If you are a fan of the Monkoh
style of heating agarwood or granulated incense, you will
be delighted to find that the delicate
vanillic-sweetness of agarwood that this style of heating
preserves is present in this oil as well - an aspect
of agarwood that is absent when using other heating
Many of our earlier Japanese-inspired
attars contained various traditional spices and herbs used
in the Japanese tradition, and those ingredients defined
the characters of the oils.
Jinkoh To Byakudan, on the other hand, focuses on oud and
sandalwood almost exclusively. The spices used in this
blend work subtly in the background, and are only there to
exalt the oud and sandalwood.
The end result: an ultra refined attar
that wonderfully mimics high end Japanese
You have to try it to believe it.

a floral fruity balance, with a superb golden amber
It is a masterpiece. I don't know how you did it but I
have been searching for this scent my whole adult life!
How in the world did you create this scent??!?!?!?!
It is killer!!!!! It is either a work of genius or a one
in a million happy accident.
You have captured that elusive kyara note for
sure. Trully smells like super elite, mega-pricey
Japanese agarwood incense. Really casts a
spell. Thank you again Taha, another precious and
I don't know if this is the best sandalwood I've ever
smelled or the best oud I've ever smelled - or both.
I've smelled the combination of oud and sandalwood
before but never like this. This is a marriage, a
celebration of harmony as two beautiful spirits come
together, as sacred as the convergence of two rivers.
There is no discord between the two, only an embrace.
I just got my jinkoh to byakadan sample yesterday; I
love it. In fact so much that I ordered a bottle
just a moment ago. You are doing an amazing service for
people. It may not be charity or saving lives but for me
you bring something that I otherwise might never have
experienced. It's a spiritual stimulant.
Sometimes burning incense makes me cough, and I have
trouble getting beyond the heavy smoke in order to focus
on the ingredients. Those things discourage me from
burning as often as I’d like, so this oil is real
pleasure for me, Taha. It’s not a substitute for the
incense, but it’s amazing how close you’ve come to
capturing the essence of some of my favorite
sticks. Have you thought about sending it to some
of the incense shops? I really think it would be a
I've had compliments all day from JTB my dad &
brother love it too they said. This is good stuff. I'm

silage just what I like in a favorite fragrance!
