Today I am reviewing Gyokushodo Jinsui Seikan incense sticks.
Main Ingredients: Aloeswood, Sandalwood, Others
Burn Time: Approximately 25 minutes.
Lightly floral. Lightly sweet. A bit of an ‘orange’ colored vibe.
Light aloeswood, light sandalwood, a bit of spikenard, but some floral component overshadows everything else.
Don’t get me wrong, this smells good. The problem is that not only is it a generic (and nice) Japanese incense smell, it is very light. I can barely smell this even when it’s burning right beside me. If you waft it towards your face, it does have a pleasant aroma but I feel like I would have to burn several of these in order to get a decent fragrance. Sadly, this is the issue I have with most low-smoke incense sticks.
The scent does increase slightly as the incense burns, but it’s lacking any deep wood scents. Overall, it’s very light. It needs a little more character.
