Warm and soothing, this unique incense is masterfully infused with precious propolis and beeswax. Earthy, sweet, herbal, spicy, balsamic. The deep fragrance of propolis is reminiscent of the environment from which it is gathered, exuding a profound and earthy scent. As propolis is a resinous material, it carries a slightly sticky and resin-like aroma, reminiscent of tree sap or plant resins. A subtle hint of sweetness underlies the scent, delicate and never overpowering. The balsamic quality of propolis enhances its overall fragrance, infusing it with a warm and soothing aroma akin to balms and natural healing substances. The presence of Beeswax essence adds a mellowness to the blend. When propolis combines with beeswax, as bees use it to seal their hives, the interaction mellows and refines the propolis scent, imparting a softer and more delicate character to the overall aroma.
Mike from the the Olfactory Rescue Service informs: “Balsamic Amber just absolutely impressed immediately, it’s an instant hall of famer. It’s interesting but when we talk about good incenses we can spend so much time in areas (usually the woods) where resources are precious and rewards only given to the expensive, so Balsamic Amber reminds me that you can still create something excellent without having to go there. First of all it’s super rich with a lot of breadth, second it’s not hard at all to get the really wonderful balsamic quality and how it helps get an almost honeycomb-like amber in the center. Honey-like undoubtedly due to the inclusion of propolis and beeswax in the aroma. It’s wonderfully topped off with this expansive foresty vibe and a lot of cinnamon spiciness. I will admit that something like this is naturally in my wheelhouse but I am not sure I’ve ever smelled an Indian incense that does this so well. It’s one of those invigorating incenses that is perfect for a colder morning. I hope Bhagwan are able to keep this stocked a long as possible, it’s an absolute must.”
