Incense Discovery Set


We the mortals touch the metals,
the wind, the ocean shores, the stones,
knowing they will go on, inert or burning,
and I was discovering, naming all the these things:
it was my destiny to love and say goodbye.

-Pablo Neruda

For the new recruit or the seasoned veteran. The BLACKBIRD Incense Discovery Set allows you to follow along with the story and choose your own adventure.

ONE TWO CONE PACKET OF EACH: Ai, Gorgo, Izba, Lone, Mars, Muru, Ploom, Targa and Tilde

     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.

    What a bad surprise

    I thought these incense would be better. I was wrong. They burn super fast. They're expensive. The amount of fragrance coming from them is ok but all around average at best.

    Discovery Phase

    I’m working my way through the discovery set. My favorites so far are Ai and Gorgo but who knows what will happen when I open the next one? The scents are so different than anything; I’ve experienced. Ethereal but grounded and lasting. And I can’t forget to mention the way that sexy black cone burns. The spiral smoke is mesmerizing all by itself. Thank you for offering the “no box” option. I would like to see that option when I reorder a single scent, not just for the sampler set.
