56p from my local hardware store. Hex box - no number or weight marked on box - probably from a gift set, in which case there would be sixteen sticks. Pan Aroma is a brand owned by Manchester based company, 151Products Ltd. Sticks are machine machine, so are very even. The perfume is OK, a gentle sandalwood, rather crisp, almost acrid, which gives it some punch. However, it's so mild it makes little impact, and is best used as a very subtle background scent. It's a sensual relaxing scent, so would be good for the bedroom, or in the evening. I wouldn't seek these out, but would be OK buying again at this price if I saw some in a shop.

Bought for 56p for 20 sticks from my local hardware shop, this has a chemical toilet cleaner deodorant aroma on the stick, though burns more pleasantly, with wood tones and some hint of scorching wool. Champa is the Indian name for the flower fragipani (also known as plumeria). This is a fairly simple and basic incense stick which while not being offensive, offers little.
A sweet floral aroma - quite artificial, but acceptable. It's a pleasant and calming aroma, suitable for everyday background or for covering up toilet odours. Purchased from my local hardware store for 56p for a box of 20. Good value. I'd be OK with buying this again. It's not one to seek out, but if its there in the shop at a cheap price, it's worth buying.
N. Ranga Rao & Sons Exports of Mumbai have been selling incense since 1948, and export to 60 countries. They use Flute, Cycle, Lia and Angel brand names, and also make Woods and Rhythm brand incense.

The cheap plastic packaging combined with the machine dipped sticks with chemical scents is not encouraging, but these sticks are among my favourites. The scent is very pleasing (I adore Frankincense & Myrrh so much), and is just the right amout so it is strong enough to be noticed but not overwhelm.
Made by Aromatika, an Indian company based in Jaipur who have been making incense for over 30 years.

Magnolia is known as the colour that letting and estate agents like to encourage owners to paint their homes as it is inoffensive. Yes. Lacking in character. And that's the same here with this incense.
Nothing to see here. Move along.
