  • The List-The Best of The Best 2010

    Well we talked about having an awards event here, but we just now talked about it, so we will prepare next year for it. But what we are going to do is list of the Haus favorites. Most will be aromatically related, some not. Some listings will have more than one “best” listed. If something or someone is not listed, it does not mean we do not like, or that it is not a good product/person, it just means they did not make the list, maybe for space reasons. Anyway here’s the best of the best at the Haus of Waft 2010.

  • Notes/Announcement

    No reviews today,but some notes and small announcements.
    I received a nice semi liquid Siam Benzoin from Soma Luna, that is very rich,balsamic, great vanilla notes, and for the price for a half ounce, is a definite good buy.This benzoin is a nice incense benzoin. Also, as of late last month, they received some newer products, including a tempting white Sumatra Copal, that is of very high quality,a must for incense lovers, incense crafter’s, or those fond of copal.Here is the link is you would like to check this resin out,http://www.somaluna.com/prod/sumatra_white_high_quality_copal.asp
    If I have not already mentioned, the Haus of Waft has a new family member, Matthew L. Green, writer, resin lover, and incense creator. He also is the Haus resin expert.
    Another note of interest, the Haus of Waft has been very busy producing and creating incense, a voodoo kit, body powders, and very nutrient, fragrant hair oils/butters. The first to arrive on the scene will be the incense, which will be sold in very small batches or samples, because they will be in a consumer tester phase. The scents created will be made of natural materials. The voodoo kit is impressive, if I do say so myself. I will hopefully be reviewing some incense soon!
