India Temple incense sticks are wildly popular and massively sold throughout the world.

These are made by ‘Song of India’ which is a subsidiary of R. Expo. They also come in a variety of sizes.

Well, let’s delve in.

India Temple Review

Upon opening the incense, I realized these are not masala styled incense sticks, but are instead seem to be a impregnated charcoal variant. This is where they compound the perfume into charcoal before using semi-automatic machinery to roll an incense stick with the impregnated material.

As for the smell, these incense sticks smell very close to bananas to me. I am not kidding. When I smelled this incense, before even burning it, I was able to smell bananas. After lighting it, also bananas. Yet, the interesting thing is, sometimes other people who I’ve burnt this around often seem to disagree with me. There is also some underlying wood fragrance of some sort, and a moderately strong floral component in it’s fragrance profile. It also smells a little sweet.

I know these are extremely popular, and many people love them, but for me, it simply smells to floral and fruity. Although, all being fair, I should mention that I generally like deeper, more earthy aromas. That aside, these are still relatively cheap charcoal based incense sticks.

    I used to use such sticks often. But the information about their production is so different. Although in countries where incense is used everywhere it does not annoy us. Choose yourself to use or not.
