There's Nothing Earthy About These Fragrances

The Earth Scents incense set is an inexpensive collection of several sticks and cones that while they are not earthy in fragrance they are not obnoxious. I'm not sure I would purchase this set again, but I will definitely continue to burn what I have left.
Plenty of incense, scents are not overpowering, inexpensive.
Scents are not earthy, ceramic holder doesn't catch ashes, short burn time.

extremely useful review
I'm not a huge fan of incense, but I've been known to burn and enjoy some in my time. Most types of incense smell horrible to me; Nag Champa is one of the few I can stand. I favor this one Japanese company's incense but they're too expensive for me. But I'd been wanting incense for a while now and since I had gift cards from EF, I thought I'd get the only incense set they carry: Earth Scents.

The set includes 40 sticks and 20 cones. It also comes with a little ceramic holder as opposed to the wooden one mentioned on the box. I wasn't bothered in the least by this; I was just glad it came with a holder period. The box has keywords that I guess are supposed to represent what the fragrances stand for: Peace, Confidence, Power, Energy, Faith, and Protection. I honestly can't smell much difference in the colored sticks and cones, only that some are stronger than the others. The colors are purple, green, pink and an orange-ish red.

None of them give off a scent that I would call earthy. In fact, they smell rather like perfumes. I don't really care for perfume or related scents, but thankfully these scents are not obnoxious; I can burn them without irritating my sinuses and getting a headache. Both the sticks and the cones have a burning time of about 10 minutes each, 15 at the absolute most. Personally, I find that to be a bit quick, but I figure any more time and the scents my start to annoy me.

I like the ceramic holder the least in this set. It measures in at a mere 2 1/2 X 1 1/2 inches. The sticks stand up straight in the hole and the ashes do not land on the holder. I have my own holder so this was not a big problem. Really, the big draw is the incense itself. The cones keep their shape as they burn out, but when I removed the ash I noticed that the core was still burning. The cone gave all appearances to being completely out until I discovered that core, and even it did not clue me in that it was burning until I messed with it. So, my advice is to inspect the remains very carefully before disposing of them. Also, the cones stain the ceramic and those stains cannot be removed. At least I couldn't remove the discoloration.

Despite my little quibbles, I think this is a nifty set. I'm sure it would make a nice gift for loved ones who enjoy incense, especially those who like perfume-like scents or, as in my case, yourself. At 40 sticks and 20 cones this set will last me for quite some time.

    I can't believe you mentioned Nag Champa... one of my favorites! Usually when I mention it to someone, they've never heard of it though. Anyway, excellent review!

    Incense? Wow. I've never actually tried any incense. That's a pretty decent price for all of that incense. Good review.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    LOL FAIL at the design of the holder.
  • Backseat Boohoo

    Alan & Michele: Yeah, I've run into a lot of people who don't know what Nag Champa is. I just tell them it's damn good incense. lol

    Backseat Boohoo: It's really the size that's the problem. And the fact that the sticks stand straight up. Good incense holders should position the sticks at an angle over a long platform or groove to catch them

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments!
