    I love using high quality incense sticks and love Sandalwood & Jasmine. It's really nice sitting in your lounge with a coffee been surrounded by creamy woods or floral gorgeous jasmine.

    What is your favourite fragrance to scent your home with?

    Basically incense but different types that we fumigate our homes and clothes with.

    Hednic, the smell of a woman who's fumigated her clothes, dabbed oud oil behind her lobes and a swipe of saffron extract on her neck is intoxicating beyond imagination.

    I've just gotten into bakoor's. I've tried about ten or so different resins and powders but haven't tried mixing any yet. So far my favorite warm scent is the wax melts called "zen". Fills most of the house too.

    There are some lovely ones - I have a few and enjoy them too, although the quality seems to vary.

    Which are your favourites?

    Dragon's Blood and White Copal resin is good. Nag Champa powder is decent. I haven't found a mind blower yet though. However i'm sure if i walked into someone else's house that were burning them i'd be amazed. lol

    My favorite at the moment is myrrh (I have here guggul in use, Indian myrrh). But I am not burning it, I am roasting! Either I take an old aroma lamp where I replaced the bowl by a tiny copper pot (originally for tealights) or I am preparing charcoal in a censer with a steel filter on top (so I am not placing the myrrh directly on the coal). But charcoal stinks when lit, even if it's non-self-lighting and it doesn't burn that long.
    Sometimes I am grounding the myrrh with dried rosebuds or a half tonka bean in the mortar.
    It's not just the wonderful smell – the atmosphere in my home has really changed since I am doing this.

    In my case, basic and linear almost up to the point of being unimaginative, but, in my opinion, quite natural, comforting and clean-cut: mainly budget incense sticks and essential oils, gravitating almost invariably around the following notes: citrus, especially orange, neroli and tangerine, fir, pine, cedar, vetiver, lavender, marine-ozonic mixes.

    Yankee Candle Sage and Citrus plug in for now. Eucalyptus is a small dose is nice but I can never find the right kind of delivery method.

    What is your favourite fragrance to scent your home with?

    Could you recommend a good site for purchasing of said high quality incense?
