I like to burn incense. I burn it more then scented candles because I have a small dog who like to get into things and as incense can burn but not as badly as an open flame on a candle. I buy these incense gift sets at Walmart for just a little over $2.00. They have a wonderful scent to them. My favorites are "Dragons Blood" and "Linen". Dragon's Blood has a spicy scent to it and Linen smells like freshly dried laundry. Each Gift set comes with a ceramic incense burning plate about an inch and a half in diameter. They come painted in the color of the incense (Blue for Linen, red for dragons blood) and they have a tribal design carved into them (Very cute).
The scents are very strong while the incense is burning and the scent does linger for a few hours after the incense has burnt out. It will fill the whole house with the scent in a matter of seconds and last for a good 3-4 hours. The incense does not burn for very long (only about a minute or two) but as said before it really does not need to burn for much more then that to fill the room with a lasting fragrance.
Each gift set comes with 35 pieces of incense.
