Arabian-inspired luxury incense form of our Song of Songs perfume: These are sandalwood and oud chips (infected Aquillaria species), that are infused by Song of Songs perfume, and blended with the finest Yemeni myrrh which was infused with fresh hyacinth flowers from Ayala's perfumed garden in a unique resin-enfleurage technique.
Bakhoor incense can be burnt on charcoal to release fragrant smoke meant for perfuming one's robes, hair and even stationary. But it is best to enjoy this precious incense using an incense heater, which is not only longer lived, but also will show the multilayered nuances of both the perfume and the precious wood that was soaked with it.
"Me, the Rose of Sharon, the Lilly of the valley..." (Canticles 2;1) The Song of Songs (AKA The Song of Solomon, or Canticles) is an erotic love poem, that sensually reveals in quite detail the rich aromatic culture of the Biblical Middle East. This passionate perfume consists of all the Biblical plants and aromatics that were used to cleanse, purify and seduce in that magnificent poem.
