I have a few woods in need of identifying if anyone can help

I have a ton of different stuff, apparantly it came from a sawmill in south America I was told, the second pictured wood has a sweet smell to it.

If the first one is dense and heavy I would guess Ipe. If the second one has the texture and weight of poplar I would say Peruvian walnut.

Not sure if this will help. The first pic I believe is panga panga. The second I'm not sure.
Here's a pic I have of a piece of panga
