These are some of the best incenses available from India - we have selected our very favorite scents from a vast selection of incense, and tried to describe them to the best of our ability. We hope you enjoy each and every one of these wonderful scents. =)

I make no apologies, almost!, that most of these incenses are champas/Durbars (like Nag Champa is). Champas are very popular and a lot of manufacturers for the US market in India are doing some beautiful things with champas! If they're not your thing, don't worry!, we still carry Samadhi and as we find more interesting non-Champa selections, we will add them here!


Balaj Ruda / Arruda Rue incense

In some cultures Rue has been believed to be a repellent for evil, so this incense is also known as 'Drive Out Badness' incense

This is a masala incense (the stick is a blonde color, unlike charcoal incenses that have a black stick) that smells like sweet herb/sweet pea and spring herbs on the unburnt stick. When burnt, you get a sweet pea, dry herb with some green leaves in the background of the masala scent. Very sweet, but with some herby green notes, and different.

Padmini Brindavan Hex Tube 20 sticks - $1.50

I love dragon's blood - but, in truth? Though we sell and use the resin, I'm also slightly lazy when it comes to wanting to smell what I want without the preamble of setting up charcoal to burn resin on. These dragon's blood incense cones are pretty close to burning the resin, with a slightly sweet smell to it. Complex and beautiful! These come with a small ersatz metal burner to put the cone on, but be sure to put a tile under it to keep your combustable surface from combusting.
Dragons blood incense cones - 10 per box - $1.20

Previously Chandan 666, the name was changed to 777, but it's still the same wonderful woody sandalwood incense that you previously knew as 666.

This is a charcoal (black stick) type incense that smells like sweet sandalwood and flowers on the stick, and has a sweet floral/sandalwood with green in the background while burning.

Contains 25 sticks.
Chandan Sandalwood 666 renamed to 777 - $1.40

A rich wonderful floral champa - big thick sticks mean it takes longer to burn and releases a lot of fragrance that continues to linger a day or so after it's burnt. Incredibly wonderful.
Sai Flora 25g - $2.40

A very clean sweet incense floral/rose with a wonderful hint of spice, Samadhi has long been a favorite of ours. Sweet, mellow and euphoric
Samadhi Incense - $1.50

Satya Ajaro Incense

This is a mild but memorable sandalwood incense. This is sweet but not powdery. Fresh but not rain or with airy tones. Think of the desert. Think of a dry piece of sandalwood that you discover, warm and true to scent. That is the essence of Ajaro.

Satya Ajaro incense comes in a 15g box.

Shrinivas Sugandhalya Satya Royal Incense

This is for the lovers of Honey Dust, of champa, of powdered golden beautiful scents. This isn't quite a Honey Dust incense, but it's close. It's lighter with less of the deep dark ash/rubber notes of the usual champas. Honey Dust-lite? Maybe, but it's royally fantastic even not pitted against other scents.

Satya Natural Rose Incense

The Satya naturals line gives you exactly what you expect - a rich perfumed incense that smells exactly like Rose.

This is a masala incense that features a heady Rose scent. This is more powdery, less green and with none of the lemony notes that Rose sometimes has. I'd call this a heady Florabunda rose, ripe rich and unabashedly luscious, mature and fragrant.

SAC Sandesh Palo Santo Incense

Palo Santo or 'Holy Stick' is a natural wood aromatic incense used for centuries by the Incas and indigenous people of the Andes as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing. I'm not sure if it does any of that, but it smells clean, woody and wonderful!

Goloka Nature's Nest Incense

The box says this is a unique blend of rare Herbs, Flowers, Honey, Resins and Oils. This is perhaps a richer counterpart to Royal incense. The herbs are dry and in the background, there's very little woods in this blend and the honey is a deep rich note that has resinous notes of Amber to our nose. If you like Nag Champas, this is a must-burn.

Nag Champa Flora 15g - $1.50
