Today’s review is Vampire Blood incense sticks by Devil’s Garden.
Surely these are targeted towards a specific group of people, as the packaging has a very dark look to it, with spatters of color, resembling blood across it.
Normally I would by a non-novelty themed incense, but these are actually quite popular, so I figured I would add a review on these Vampire Blood incense sticks to the review section of my blog.
The product description for this product states:
Vampire blood is harvested through an advanced process in which vampires are slowly bled. The unearthly qualities of the blood are isolated and extracted into a premium incense. Some vampires were harmed during this process but none met true death. This is a rare premium extract of Vampire Blood that is sure to heighten the senses and create inner sensations of nirvana.
Although the description is fun, it is also a bit unnerving.
I have burned these incense sticks before. They are an interesting incense formulation. I am pretty sure that they took a nag champa base (which comprises of sandalwood and either champak or frangipani notes) and added dragons blood resin to it. What you end up with is a nag champa fragrance with an intriguing dark, earthy, and musky aroma alongside it.
One of my wholesalers informed me that these incense sticks are no longer being manufactured. This took place a few years after a factory change which resulted in a different smelling incense stick. They still seem to be available for the time being, so I’m not sure what is going on with all of that.
