First, I did search this, but have a feeling the word incense also comes up when people get angry about something so I didn’t see a topic on this.
Second, before you leap to conclusions, I just enjoy the smell, I’m not using it to cover up anything (I’m sober and have been a good while), unless it covers up a tad of cat smells (they’be been pretty well behaved and use their litter box religiously, but still).
I have a variety of types I picked up and am partial to, but wouldn’t mind experimenting a bit too. Apparently Nipon Kodo makes a lot of the brands I like (Goldfish, Butterfly, Wisteria, Osmanthus, Jasmine, Bloom amongst them).
And I like their Tequila Sunrise…
Generally, sandlewood is a favorite too, I don’t stick to any particular brand here.
I’ve noticed some of the Japanese incenses can get extremely expensive (believe it or not) which makes me a little wary of trying something “scent” “unseen”, but I am open to further experimentation, so suggest away (or feel free to tell me, Nixxter, for a guy, you encourage your feminine side a bit much, I have a thick skin!).
I tend to like floral scents a lot (in flowers, one of my enjoyable discoveries over the past five years has been the delight of tuber roses, they ain’t all that much to look at (small, star like blossoms) but their scent is very unique, and can be powerful to those with a scent sensititivy (like my wife - I keep the incense, and the fragrant flowers down in my lair and away from her). At the same time I find many of the traditional lillies overpowering and not pleasant or appealing, it’s a fine line.
