Nag Champa GOLD!

INCREDIBLE! That's the only way to describe this incense from India. Nag Champa GOLD!! is a traditional style, hand rolled masala incense made with REAL halmaddi. Halmaddi is what used to give the Shrinivas Nag Champa (in the blue box) that indescribably wonderful, rich scent.

Enjoy that fragrant, 'true' nag champa scent again in Nag Champa GOLD!! It also has sacred "gold" dust (the filings from the brass god-statue factory) mixed into the dough and added to the finishing dust so the sticks sparkle and glisten ... making it look as rich as it smells!
Nag Champa GOLD! - 20 grams
Nag Champa GOLD! - 100 grams

Vietnamese Aloeswood IncenseVIETNAMESE ALOESWOOD INCENSE STICKS: "Honestly, I wasn't expecting much when I was asked by Beth to look at some Vietnamese sticks that she was planning on carrying in the near future, but admit I was pleasantly surprised by what arrived. 

The first thing to strike me was that it was incredibly thin for a 10" long stick, think Kyukyodo Azusa here or perhaps Flying Fairy, although I believe this is even thinner. 

Maybe a bad sign, could be that they used a lot of binder to hold it together, but once the stick is burning, this fear is dispelled, as no sign of binder is discernible, so the thinness must be produced by one very nice hydraulic press.

As for the smell of the wood itself, well, that really was an unexpected surprise.  Most of the "pure" wood sticks produced these days come from plantation trees that are force inoculated at 6-7 years of age, harvested soon after, and therefore don't develop the true, deep nature that a good agarwood should have.  This stick, on the other hand, tends to remind one of the sticks that you used to be able to buy out of Cambodia and parts of Vietnam many years ago, with a deep and luscious resin smell.  I would say that this is one of the best Vietnamese sticks currently on the market, and certainly the only one of this length to present the purity of the wood in such a fine manner!

I could see lighting a couple of these up for a meditative session.  Describing the smell of the wood itself is the hardest, for me it is easy to say, it smells like Cambodian, but then I realize that many people haven't smelled a good Cambodian wood before. Think maybe Scented Mountain with a very deep back note, not the spiciness of Hakusui of old, or the overt sweetness of Ogurayama.  Anyhow, it was an incense I really enjoyed reviewing, as it is good to see a quality product enter the field.

Buddha Dhoop Holy Basil IncenseHOLY BASIL (Tulasi): An important symbol in the Hindu religious tradition and is worshiped in the morning and evening by Hindus at large. Holy Basil has many highly important ayurvedic healing powers. It is useful as a nerve tonic and to strengthen the memory. It has a beneficial effect in cardiac disease and the weakness resulting from them. It reduces the level of blood cholesterol. It is useful, also, in the treatment of ringworm and other skin diseases. Holy Basil juice is an effective remedy for sore eyes and night-blindness and is a useful medicine for headaches.

This incense contains the freshest Holy Basil available, resulting in an aromatic incense. The incense is contained in a beautiful tube, wrapped with handmade lokta paper which has leaves and twigs from the HImalayan region impregnated into it. Roll contains approximately 50, 9" sticks of incense.

Laxmi DhoopNEW!!LAXMI DHOOP: By customer request! A thick, gummy dhoop stick that has an absolutely lovely after burn scent. The fragrance is fresh and slightly resinous, consisting of loban (benzoin), with a touch of bergamot and lavender.

This incense needs a long lighting period. Allow the stick to flame for about 30 seconds before blowing it out and allowing it to smolder. If the stick does not get hot enough it will not stay lit. This incense can also be broken off into little pellets and burned on charcoal.
If you purchase this incense, and aren't certain you like the scent after your first burn, give it a second chance. Most people fall in love with this incense after giving it a chance to enchant them.

Box contains 8, 3" long soft dhoop sticks with a metal holder.

We're pleased to introduce you to the Olfactory Rescue Service, formerly Mike's Prattle. The Olfactory Rescue Service (ORS) exists to review and discuss the world of retail incense in order to help bridge the gap between East and West in terms of understanding incense and helping the reader find higher quality scents, sources for these scents and to connect with others passionate about fine scent. Written in a highly understandable language, Mike, Ross and Nancy help bring the world of incense to your door, one scent at a time.

While ORS cooperates with all reputable incense companies (several of which send samples for their review), it currently remains a third party resource and only claims bias in favor of excellent service, fair pricing and the constructive.

After reading what Mike, Ross, Gregg and Marian have to say, come back to Essence of the Ages for all your incense wants and NEEDS!! We carry 99.99% of all incense they review!
