  • Photo Illustration: Scouted/The Daily Beast/AmazonScouting Report: Less smokey and more of a subtle fragrance, this Japanese incense has (almost) completely taken the place of candles in my home.
  • When I think of incense, I picture foggy college dorm rooms with tapestries covering the windows, or the people outside the subway in Union Square selling their wares.
  • As a candle lover (read: hoarder), I strayed away from the potent, overbearing nature of incense, until I was introduced to this Japanese incense.
  • Traditional incense, also known as Indian incense, is heavy on the fragrance and smoke.
  • Some people swear by it, and in some applications, it can be lovely.
