Nice packaging. Comes with a lot of sticks and the quality of the incense is superb.
Beautiful packaging, beautiful scent. I'm not sure the given description quite captures how I perceive the scent, which reminds me a bit of an Italian body powder I used to wear. To me it's a round, soft, pervasive, feminine scent—I burn it sometimes in my walk-in clothes closet, and there's an air of calm for a day or two when I open the door. I don't really get the bite of cinnamon or sourness, and for me it's more of an environmental scent than a ritual one, to give me peace in this world. I only recently started burning burning incense again—the pandemic and general disharmony—but this is the best quality I've obtained so far, and the claim of "less smoke" is no exaggeration. There's hardly any smoke at all, and very little aroma of burning. The scent catches me off guard in odd spaces for a couple of days after burning. Well worth the price with the number of sticks—and you will want to keep the fine box.
