I will let the reviews speak for this wonderful incense. It is an offering of incense art...Katlyn
Ocean of Night created by Ross Urrère:
I use very high grade sandalwood (Santalum album), as well as Frankincense, Oakmoss and about 15 other resins, woods and spices. Ocean does not use any oils and there are no fillers of any kind. During the R and D for this blend I decided it was ready the day Mandy Aftel said she liked it. At that point I figured if it was good enough for her then it was ready for the rest of the world.
Ross Urrère’s Ocean of Night oakmoss incense is very special and
drop-dead gorgeous — it is a balsamic, wet forest to lose yourself in.
- Mandy Aftel
The first incense that ever “floated my boat” is an ambergris/oud mix made by our own Ross. It is soothing yet uplifting, penetrates without sharpness and gently seeps into my soul with firmness and tenderness. It conjures up images of a magnificent old tree in the middle of a forest- a tree whose roots drive towards the center of the earth, whose trunk spans 6 men’s chests and whose branches vie with Icarus to reach the sun. Each branch is strong enough to hold a city-full of children and beneath its branches flowers grow, worms crawl, antelopes lounge in its shade and mothers read to children. They all feel safe and protected. The ocean gently washes its heart-spread leaves, its strength is encrusted in it’s bark; it’s roots are scaled with sober purpose. A mineral firmness thickens and darkens its sap as it drifts in anchored solitude.

Ocean of Night looks like dry black soil, so much so that you will want to poke your finger into the jar and stir it around a bit because, odd little creature that it is, it begs that kind of attention.
Straight from the jar it smells cool and resinous, nothing terribly exciting,
but! Oh, yes, but!
But upon burning,
its character flings out its arms and opens them widely;
it becomes enormous, intense,
overwhelming and spiritual,
a great heaving beast in the darkness.
So much like a dark, not-so-calm starlit ocean.
