Palas Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom and War may seem like a far fetched inspiration for what is a very Indian fragrance. But if you smelled Palas Athena with its rich champaca notes, you will understand why.
Both potent, powerful, gentle and warm - this perfume was such a natural fit for an incense blend that I couldn't resist the challenge of turning it into an incense. And this is my first time creating with some unusual traditional Indian materials little known in the West, and very tricky (and sticky!) to work with. It may not be perfect yet, but I'm pleased enough with the result to want to share it with you.
Palas Athena Incense cones and masala sticks are made in the traditional Indian way, and hand-rolled from unique botancials - resins, woods and spices that are unique to Indian incense crafting. This unique blend of exotic woods, spices, resins and flowers is very much an homage to the famous Nag Champa type of incense that is immensely popular but has long been tempered with synthetic additions.
from finely ground botanicals such as sandalwood, agar wood, spices, resins and herbs, and bound with natural gums or wood bark. No saltpetre or synthetic fillers are used in this incense.
Each box contains a dozen cones, or masala sticks.
