When I first lit this, it transported me back to wandering into a head shop in Ladbroke Grove in the early Seventies with a Spiritual Sky incense wafting on the breeze, probably Strawberry Fields. The playful, sweet, fruity tones gradually develop deeper notes until it becomes more serious and woody, and finishes with a fairly sombre cedar wood feel, and a little bit of heat. I like the start and am not dismayed by the finish. It's a proper job masala and does deliver on the quality I have come to expect from Goloka, though it's not quite on the same level with their main output. I note that the Reiki series is on sale all over the world (I got this packet from The Scenter, who has all five in the series), though it is not listed on Goloka's own website. I wonder if, when stocks run out, we'll see the end of this series - perhaps it was something they tried, and now they are exploring something else.
Those in the Reiki series that I have tried: this, and Healing, and Timelessness, have been decent quality and very pleasant to burn, but didn't quite lift into the heavenly that Goloka can do. Nothing that Goloka do is below decent quality, and everything they do is worth buying, though - to be fair - their main lines are the ones to concentrate on first before exploring side lines such as this Reiki series. However, if you do see any for sale, best grab them now, just in case Goloka have discontinued the series.
