 Q: How do I burn an incense pyre?          

A: First find a heatproof, non-flammable container such as a seashell, clay bowl, a rock or a device designed to burn incense cones. Place the cone in or on the container and light the tip of the cone with a lighter or match. Allow cone to burn for 10 to 15 seconds until a red ember is visible and then blow out. Your cone should smoke and continue to burn on its own. If it does not stay lit, try again.

 Q: How long will a cone of incense scent my room?         

A: Many hours depending upon your room size, ventilation such as AC or drafts. For larger rooms, burn two or three cones at once.

 Q: My incense cone didn't burn to the end. What do I do?              

A: First off, some mysteries of science and chemistry are never to be solved. Beyond that here are some helpful hints and tips. #1 Fire requires air. Try placing your cones on sand, salt or dry non-flammable soil to increase circulation. Also, try blowing on the cone a bit in the beginning to build up a larger ember #2 Made sure your cones didn't get wet or think about if the air is very humid. Water prevents fire. #3 Relight the cone. You can do this by holding the cone with tweezers for safety while you are lighting. #4 Break off the tip of a new cone. Sometimes the cone needs a larger ember to get started in life and to stay burning. #6 Don't let the flame run too long or too short before blowing out the cone. #7 Email for help.

 Q: Which of your scents are for men and which are for women?        

A: We believe that scent is a personal expression of your individuality and it's truly up to the individual to select scents that are right for them based on their skin type and personal preference. This is one of the main reasons that we offer all of our scents in sample sizes for purchase.

Q: Why can't I smell my Pipe Bomb Perfume?         

A: Pipe Bomb contains so few molecules that the nose may become anosmic to the scent. Read more about it here.

Q: My bottle of Pipe Bomb has white crystals around the sprayer. Is it defective?       

A: Pipe Bomb is what is called a "molecule perfume". One of the molecules it contains starts out in the crystal form before being diluted with alcohol. When the alcohol dries down the crystals go back to their solid state. You can wipe down the crystals with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol.

 Q: Where can I smell your incense and perfume in person?      

A: You can either purchase an incense sampler pack or the Eau de Parfum sampler mix. Or you can check our retailer page for a local vendor near you.

Q: How can I sell Blackbird products in my store? 

A: Contact for inquiry.

Love it

I’ve burned all their scents they currently offer and am pleased with them all!

Super nice!

I really like it. Subtle, rosey, green, vanilla-y tobacco. Tempted to burn this during my wedding, but hesitant since it’s limited edition. If y’all want to hook me up with a signature wedding scent, I’d be super excited!

This is perfect for spring and summer. It smells so light and sweet with a bit of green. I’m a little sad it’s only a limited edition thing because rationing is going to be hard. The lingering smell just makes me want to burn another cone because it smells so delicious.

Too spendy

As a huge Cold Cave fan and having just attended one of their shows, I was really excited to buy this incense. It's good stuff, but including shipping I paid over $40 for 20 cones of incense. I have never spent this much on incense before and was expecting something spectacular, but it burns a lot like other much cheaper incense. Cone burns out in about 5 minutes and doesn't provide huge throw. Packaging is really cool though.

Love comes wafting in

Let's face it, love is at best light and fleeting. So it is appropriate this new incense by Blackbird " Love Comes Close" is the brighter of the two new releases. Still a worthy addition to the collection. This is for the daytime. This is for those times between all those other times. Recommended.
