I am a meditator and have been using this Traditional Japanese Incense for years as it's not very smoky and the fragrance is of a very refined standard. As soon as the Sandalwood incense starts burning, my spirit calms down and is taken to a peaceful place!

They break very easily, and rather pricey . Smell ok

This incense has a lovely home fragrance quality but still provides the characteristic incense atmosphere, I’ll definitely buy again.

Clean smell worthy purchase

Lovely smell, though it burns through too quickly, it's still pleasant to use.

Bought these as a gift so I don't know how they burn, but WOW they smell incredible just as is!

This has become a firm favorite in my household. Love the smell and it doesn't affect my sinuses at all. Burns out quite quickly though!

I dont know why but for me this incense has helped me in remembering my dreams, before i very rarely remembered my dreams vividly.

The smell is great and its very calming also. Great product and considering i have a small space the size is perfect an isnt overpowering

The gentle fragrance of these sticks are a favourite. They add to the peace and calm of my Reiki practise and help with my meditations too, they don't overpower your senses

Needs to last longer

I love incense so this smell was great. It doesn't have a wood tip so you cant put it in the standard incense holder so I found it tends to break when you manoeuvre it which is rather annoying.
Doesn't seem to leave a lingering smell for long either.

First found this in London so nice it is available in SA. As with other Japanese incense, the sticks are pure incense with no wood centre so it gives off a pure aroma. The fragrance (not cloying or sweet), is subtle and pleasantly 'forest-like'. Can be broken in half for a shorter 'burn'.

Beautiful pure incense, not at all overpowering. Love the gentle aroma without the usual headache and nausea from most I have experienced.

It's rather difficult to get a hold of Japanese incense, but it's worth it. They burn quick, low amount of smoke, and the smell doesn't stick around too long.

This incense smells amazing! Not too overpowering.

I read some of the comments and have to add mine just for reference. I am very prone to sinus infection and burning the incense sticks that is rolled onto bamboo sticks really smoke a lot more and affects my sinuses negatively. These sticks are one of the few incense sticks that do not have the bamboo center. The incense is rolled and the whole thing is just the incense. For that reason the stick will break more easily and you will have to be more careful when using it. I put mine in sea sand and not an incense stick holder for this reason. The scent of these sticks are fabulous and so discreet yet you can still smell it. I think because there is no bamboo center and the smell is discreet, these will not affect your sinuses as much, but having said that it still smells amazing. Just a note - anything that burn will make some degree of smoke :-)

Cannot seem to really get the smell of the scent. Will try and adjust something and try again. Very fragile.

I would recommend Faithful to Nature to my friends as they very kindly sent this via courier as a back order and kept me informed about the delay. But I was a bit disappointed with the product. I ordered it because I thought Japanese incense didn't smoke so much. It still smoked - maybe not as much as the others, but it still did. But it still seems to smoke. It has quite a lovely scent, but my biggest disappointment is that it keeps breaking into small pieces when I try to put it in the incense holder.

Great scent and last long

Soooo happy to have found this pure incense- i love the smell which does linger even though it burns through quickly!

Didn't like the scent and it breaks its too thin
23/06/2017, By Regina
I absolutely love these! I get sinus from the traditional incense sticks and cannot use them at all. These are shorter and do not have the wood in the middle. I am not sure if that is what makes the difference, but they are lovely! Does not get sinus from them at all and they burn just the right amount of time for the scent to last a good few hours.

They are short-lived but I absolutely love the smell. I am not one long burning incense as it gives me sinuses trouble so I like these little guys.

They are extremely delicate and break easily. The scent of these are not as strong as I was hoping for but it does work well to have a quick in the moment vibe.

This incense tends to smell of urn rather than incense. It also burns out very quickly without leaving the lingering scent I am accustomed to.
