Hala everyone and welcome back to "Arabic Pick". In this week, the Arabic word/phrase is...
ArabicBukhoor
English:  Incense (The thing Arabs burn for nice smell. It can be very expensive. Good bukhoor comes from Cambodia and 200 grams of it can be sold for AED 10,000.)
Example:
Sometimes, the strong smell of bukhoor gives me headache.

P.S. I have learned the above words or phrases informally. Arabic speakers, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!
