For those of us who seek a premium incense experience, a prestige home fragrance moment, there’s Maison Balzac. Made on Awaji Island in Japan from the best materials, Maison Balzac incense sticks are a pleasure to burn, and on top of that, they smell like heaven.
Each stick lasts for around 25 minutes, though of course the fragrance will linger in your space for much longer than that. They’re made from jimi powdered wood and natural oils, and we have to say, they’re really quite elegant. It’s a yes.
Which Maison Balzac incense fragrance is for me?
Well, that depends on what kind of mood you’d like to go for. La Chapelle is a moody, evocative scent, inspired by the idea of an empty church. Think soft light through stained glass, high ceilings and heavy velvet. Lush. By contrast, La Soleil is fresh and light. If sunshine had a smell, it would be something along these lines.
How should I burn my Maison Balzac incense?
Might we suggest a Maison Balzac incense holder? The pebble is a very cool and low-key option. So, with your holder of choice, put your stick of choice in, then light the end and let it burn for 10 seconds or so. Blow it out, and you should be left with a red tip which will continue to burn slowly and scent your space. Lovely.
