Today I am reviewing Rising Phoenix Perfume Asian Pear Senkoh incense sticks. I was sent a stick and a half of these incense sticks as a sample.
This incense formulation consists of Asian goose pear, Mysore sandalwood and Vietnamese agarwood. JK DeLapp says that the juices of the Asian pear were stirred and steamed in a solid silver pot alongside Mysore sandalwood and Vietnamese agarwood until the juices dried. That material was then used to make these incense sticks.
It’s not to often that I come across something new in the world of incense.
This is something new.
I didn’t expect Asian pear to be the dominating fragrance note. I thought that the Vietnamese agarwood and Mysore sandalwood might overpower the delicate fruit notes. I was wrong.
Juicy notes of Asian pear flow out of the smoke, while Mysore sandalwood gives it a true incense vibe. It’s on the sweeter side, but it’s not cloying. The scent is juicy and reminds me of biting into an Asian pear. I didn’t notice much agarwood at first, but it showed it’s presence about the time the stick had finished burning and showed some classic bitter notes.
I thought these were extremely enjoyable and if you enjoy Asian pear then there is no doubt that you would love these. A truly unique incense experience. I’ve never smelled anything like it.
