    Your favorite incenses

    This topic was inspired by the thread about "real" Dragon's Blood incense posted a little while ago. Personally, the only place I buy incense anymore is THIS place. I just thought I'd put that out there, because I have not, to date, found a better smelling, longer lasting incense for anywhere near the price they offer it. The tube of incense they send you for $7 is HUGE, and smells as wonderful as they say it does. I have a tube of gardenia, and it smells exactly like the prolific bush of gardenia my mother used to have. I loved that bush, and almost cried when I smelled it. (Miss those damn flowers. Unfortunately, I think they'd just freeze here and I live with a severe allergy sufferer who'd probably whine and bitch about boohoo pollen. ) Although I will say not every single one of the tubes smells *quite* like how I think it should, most of the ones that are "off" are the ones with ambiguous names... like Rain Drops and Love. I was very torn between gardenia and honeysuckle when I bought my first tube.

    What's your favorite place?

    In honesty, I've never bought incense online. I've always been afraid of them smelling yucky. My favorite incense has to be dragon's blood. I buy mine from this one place downtown called Corky's. Speaking of that...I really need to buy more.

    I rarely burn incense for 'fun' these days, so I'm usually obliged to burn certain scents whether I like them or not... but if I were burning incense for fun, HEM patchouli and Padmini Benzoin are probably my favorites (both are stick incenses.)

    I currently only buy locally from a lovely woman who lovingly hand crafts the very best.

    I will check this place out, it may be nice to supplement when she's out of my amber. Thanks for the heads up, I would not ordinarily buy online since I can't touch or smell it.

    I either get insense through Amazon (they have included freebies in the past with insense sticks I ordered) and from the local shop selling them. I know of a place in the city called Yankee Candle and they have nice scented candles of different types.
    The only thing that sucks around here is a straw.

    Nag Champa is my favorite, hippie that I am. I am also fond of sandalwood, patchouli, and anything else earthy and/or spicy.

    Dragon's Blood, Night Queen, China Rain, Frankincense and Jasmine are among my top five favorites. I'd burn Dragon's Blood all day if the smell of it didn't make my mom sick

    Dragon's Blood incense smells really good; I used it a few years ago. I like sandalwood, amber, and cedar. I love cedar the most though. I dislike white rose and musk. They're too strong.
