Important Information

The perfume of sandalwood, rosebay or jasmine cannot travel against the wind. But the fragrance of virtue travels to the ends of the world. (The Dhammapada)

Throughout history, fine incense has been central to humanity’s spiritual and secular life and practices. Because of this, we make absolutely no claims for the fine incense we carry — other than incense that “delights and inspires”.

We’re always on the lookout for exceptional products and limit our product list to stock only the fine incense we enjoy. Our basic criteria are these: ingredients should be all-natural with no added chemicals or artificial perfumes. We also require that the incense be from genuine sources. For example, “Tibetan Incense” must be manufactured in Tibet; “Bhutanese Incense” in Bhutan.

Our bimonthly newsletter, Uncommon Scents highlights new and special products or great offers. If you’d like to be informed, please fill in the online form. We never spam with unsolicited emails.

‘Product Review’ now enables customers to share their incense experience with others. Since incense appreciation is a highly personal matter, we value a wide range of opinions — both positive and negative. This can become an invaluable aid in our selection of fine incense. However, we reserve the right to delete reviews which do not meet normal standards of civility and common sense. By reviewing products, you implicitly agree that such reviews may be used for marketing purposes.

All prices are in USD. We have made every attempt to ensure that product information is accurate. We cannot be responsible if manufacturers alter ingredients without our knowledge. Product packaging and materials may contain other information than that shown on the website. Where possible, we have listed major ingredients as supplied by the manufacturer/supplier.

On occasion (and to our surprise), a formula may change without our knowledge. This occurred with Ruyi #1 and Dhe Tsang Monastery Incense. As well, lengths, packaging and quantities may change – this is the case with the new stock of Pema Karpo Purple and new packaging for Highland Long Stick Incense. Updated information and prices (not necessarily more expensive) will reflect this change when we release the new stock.

Please use our products responsibly, for enjoyment only and not for any “healing”, medicinal or therapeutic purpose. Our incense is not intended to replace advice given by a licensed healthcare professional and should not be used for the treatment of any health problem. assumes no liability for any misuse of its products.
