Been enjoying incense since being an altar boy in 1962. This one is my favorite.
The whole process of opening the box, carefully removing these delicate sticks begins entraining your mind. The frahrance is lovely, sublime and clean. What a blessing to have found it! Ive used the Abbott’s incense for over twenty years and love it too(although this batch seems slighlty more bitter smelling compared to my last vestiges remaining). I was looking to get a new box (of Abbott’s) when i found this website after trying to find it for years. Fu In kyara incense is amazing, even if pricey. Thank you for making it!!!
I've emailed the Monastery Store twice about the difference between their website description of this (60 short sticks) versus what I received (40 short sticks). No response after 15 days. I've not yet burned the incense itself, as I'm not sure if I'll need to return it or not--if it's 40 sticks for $55 that's *quite* pricey. Hoping for resolution soon. Haven't ever had a bad experience with Monastery store prior to this!
Initially I ordered this, somewhat nervous - it's quite expensive for me. Even opening the box now, it evokes a calm feeling. The sticks are so well made, touch the flame and they are lit. The fragrance is so beatiful I sometimes just open the box for a couple minutes in preparation for meditation. The scent is powerful at first, but as you become accustomed it's more of a mood set. I use it for meditation, and find it helps me to settle in a bit faster. It's a luxury that was well worth it. The sticks do burn about 30 minutes, I suggest not using ash or rice, as every bit is so fine - you don't want to waste any lost below the ash line. They are very slim sticks however they are sturdy for being delicate. I rate them 5 stars and hope to buy them again.
