Bukhoor or Bakhoor, is the Arabic name given to woodchips soaked in fragrant oils.

In most Arab countries, bukhoor is the name given to scented bricks. These scented chips/bricks are burned in incense burners to perfume the home and clothing with a rich thick smoke. This is used specifically on special occasions like weddings or on Fridays or generally just to perfume the house. The bukhoor is usually burned in a mabkhara, a traditional incense burner (censer). It is customary in many Arab countries to pass bukhoor amongst the guests in the majlis (Arabic meaning congregation). This is done as a gesture of hospitality.
