A silken sea, a sea of damassin,
With figured foam as flowers wove therein,
Where all the winds walk lightly.
From afar -- Clean-carven on the skies of cinnabar --
The palmy isles like azure malachite,
Along the horizon for a time retard
A morning fraught with frankincense and nard,
And purple fires, and amber-scented light,
And flame like flame of perfumes. 
-Clark Ashton Smith


Frankincense essential oil from Oman is a colorless to pale yellow liquid displaying a soft, sweet, resinous, bouquet with a delicate powdery balsamic undertone. Its topnote is distinct from other frankincense oils with a delicate resinous complexity as comparity with the more coniferous terpenic note often found in frankincense of other origins. It also has a longer dry outout  than most other frankincense I have experienced Oman frankincense has become increasily rare and expensive due to the high demand for the resin for incense as well as scarcity of genuine material in Oman.

In natural perfumery it is used in sacred perfumes, incense accords, high class perfumery, colognes, Oriental perfumes, amber bases, after shave lotions
