Frankencense merchant

The smells and fragrances from this stall, you could smell them 10 metres away. I was fascinated by the different bottles, and jars, and containers. The owner was happy to endulge me by burning lots of different oils and samples. She told me the frankencense came from Oman and Yemen. The black and brown oils were oils infused with frankencense resin from the Boswellia carterii tree.
The woman at this stall was wonderful. She seemed to be completely confused as to what this random guy was doing at her stall. But she rolled with it. I told her I’d be back in a month or to buy more frankencense. I don’t think she believed me, but when she saw me a month later, she burst out laughing. I presume she recognised me.
