Incense and Mantel Set
love this balsam incense
this Yankee loves the balsam scent. I have ordered 3 sets with holder, many boxes of refills, and the log cabin burner. the brass candlesticks are attractive and I have not had any problems with them. the log cabin requires minimal upkeep to look nice as it is wooden. the smell of the incense? Grand! it does take a little patience to light. Use a lighter and hold the flame on the stick about 30-40 sec, so that a glowing ember appears. The flame will soon go out on its own, leaving just smoke, and the delightful balsam scent will waft through your room.

I really enjoy the products found at Vermont Country Store and when I lived in NH I loved the smells! So looked forward to this product. Loved the size of the holder- could put it anywhere. LOVE the fragrance, that is, when it stays lit. My husband and I both enjoy, but can never keep it going longer than a couple of minutes, unless we have it near an open window and there's a breeze, which I don't see happening in the winter time. Really disappointed.

I found the Incense and Mantel Set absolutely delightful.
The aroma is great and is a wonderful fragrance enhancement for the home or any room. And, the price cannot be beat! Highly recommended by a person who uses incense professionally!

Where's the fire?
This stuff smells like something is burning in the basement. I thought it would be a more pleasant balsam scent, but no. Smells like a forest fire. Why anyone would want to burn these in their house is beyond me. I would return them for a refund but the cost, time and effort of repackaging isn't worth it. Maybe I will find a purpose for the holder.

The brass incense holder comes in two pieces. Unfortunately, we could not screw the two together as the hole to screw the top part into was too big.

I got the balsam incense set and the base and candlestick fit together via threads on the bottom of the candlestick part. However there's nothing for the candlestick to screw into, there's no bolt or nut to attach the two pieces, so the upper part/candlestick part tilts this way and that. Not well made, or pieces weren't included.
