Moved from Talk:Bukhoor

Comment

Incorrect element, Bakhoor is not used in this form by Christians in the Middle East. Rather they use Frankincense which is burnt over charcoals, which is referred to as "Bakhoor". The term is most likely a loan-word or possibly a reverse-corruption of an Aramean or other Semitic term. This form of Bakhoor, the kind described in the article, is seldom seen in Christian households or communities.

Merger proposal

I propose that this article be moved to Incense, or maybe Frankincense. This page lists no sources, is a stub, and moreover, Bukhoor on itself isn't a new type of perfume, just a way to perfume traditional scents (such as agarwood, or musk). This page could be merged nicely under Incense#Cultural variations. —Hexafluoride Ping me if you need help, or post on my talk 13:52, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
