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

    Possibly the best incense on the market, no lie.

    I was recently turned on to Blackbirds superior quality incense after trying so many other and finding them decidedly lacking. Now that I've sampled their entire line of cones I can comfortably say that I will never go back. The scents are all expertly blended into something fantastic that you've never smelled before but are all also familiar. You can absolutely pick out individual scents like cedar, lemongrass, mint, etc but no one aroma dominates. Now you may not like every kind but the scents that I didn't like (not many truth be told) from the sampler weren't bad they just weren't what I enjoy, but the quality is still there. All in all you can't get much better and I will absolutely be ordering more (Personally Mars is the best by the way).

    I never liked incense but, Blackbird has changed my mind. Amazing array of unique fragrances.

    So hard to choose!

    Great tester package! You can choose based on your sentiments of the day! Fell in love with a scent from here back in 2014. Love all the new scents and it’s really hard to decide what to get a full pack of. Maybe I’ll just keep doing this for the variety ;)

    Blackbird = Olfactory Ingenuity

    The nose behind Blackbird’s incense cones is an artist pure and simple. The scents they create are complex and evocative of a sepia-tinged nostalgia for a time you may never have experienced but can be transported into nonetheless: think 1880-meets-2040 and all the intervening decades between. In these scents there are dusty attics containing decaying photo albums and old books (the chemicals released when paper decays is similar in profile to vanilla and almond), wooden trunks, old bottles of cure-all tonics, tarnished civil war medals, dried roses, layers of smoke from bonfires, house fires, cigarettes, the scent of wooden church pews coated with years of curling incense smoke, some fresh unsmoked pipe tobacco, a funny kind of Miss Havisham longing, sacred spaces, and also elements that suggest cold metal, rubber, strange sentient robots of the future. There’s a whole lot going on—all of good and comforting. I’m particularly addicted to Ploom, as are my children and friends now.



    Dearest Elizabeth, Thank you for seeing me. (blush) I grew up on a farm, a sailboat, in a tipi, in department stores, antique malls, skateboarding in parking garages and listening to all types of music. My brain is full of endless references, and I'm always working on mixing them in contrasting ways to create something new. I'm not sure what's next but beware that it's probably not something anyone could predict. -Nicole

    Sample pack yes!

    Now I don’t have to decide which one I like most.
