    I will be ordering some custom wooden boxes soon. They will mainly house oud oils, attars, oud chips etc. I can only pick from oak, Chittagong teak, Burma teak, cedar and mahogany. Unfortunately paulownia, ebony, rosewood, etc. aren't variable here in Bangladesh. They will be quite basic with removable wooden dividers.

    Could you please suggest which wood I should pick and what type of finishing it should have so that they don't hamper the quality of my oils and chips (in their individual containers) inside.

    Also, I remember seeing some small magnetic boxes (stunning wood turning works) either here or on Gaharu - to store small sturdy bottles and HR vials - perfect for travelling (with cushioning ofc) or concessional display. As I can't remember, can anyone please share the link.

    Feel free to share your thoughts, recommendations and design tips.

    Warning: DON'T HAVE A BOX MADE OF FRAGRANT WOOD AT ALL.
