An ancient form of perfuming a body and a space, incense releases fragrance through heat and smoke, evoking the meaning of the word perfume. From the Latin per-fumum the word means ‘through smoke’ and refers to the original transformation of fragrant material into visible scent. Long used in religious ceremonies, incense is also valuable for scenting personal space. For this Perfumer’s Workshop, we ask four fragrance artists to help us understand more deeply the art of incense-making.
For our Incense Draw here are four incense gifts from our talented incense-makers:
WORLDWIDE: The Rising Phoenix Group: A bottle of Musk Rose Bakhoor and Indian Sandalwood Billets cinnamon tree
WORLDWIDE:Cinnamon Projects: Incense Series 01 Box with 10 sticks of each of their 5 scents Miss Almond
USA Only: Mermade Magickal Arts Wild Wood Incense with notes of fir, spruce, and cedar for the scent of the evergreen Yule tree. Amber
