Incense is one of those fragrances that has taken me awhile to fall in love with. It is very distinct, sweet, and strong. We just couldn't get along - at first. Than, overtime, we have become friends. The kind of friend that you can go a couple of months without talking but can pick-up right in the middle of a conversation. It is a sweet and spicy - wood note fragrance with a resin finish. The single scented candle is strong. This is one my teenage daughter often chooses and the whole house fills up with the fragrance. I like this one in my oil diffuser mixed with something soft.
