SCENT NOTES: Frankincense, Dragon's Blood, Dust

A terrestrial incense consisting of imaginary resins and spices from the red planet. Our rovers traverse the rocky terrain searching for signs of alien life within the silica regolith. Mars smells of warm red spicy things with a bright and dusty incense at its core. Believe it or not, our team of Martians hand-form every cone in the image of Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in our solar system.

 

 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 info@blackbird.black 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 wholesale@blackbirdballard.com for inquiry.

Incense, Intense

As soon as I lit my first cone, Blood Countess, I was in love. Not to mention the samples of perfume that intoxicated my senses with deep mystical undertones. I got a sampling of the incense and am so excited to try them all. They burn beautifully and fill my space with dreams of faraway places. Love this company and quality of their products. Highly recommend.

I just can't get enough.

I first found these several years ago at a shop in Chicago & I bought them because I loved the name & love incense in general. They turned out to be the most perfect incense that has ever graced my schnoz. And I'm so happy I found them because I always prefer cones to sticks since they are so much neater, yet sometimes harder to find. I just ordered my 6th & 7th tins of this particular scent! I've sampled plenty of others, and Izba is lovely but nothing else compares to this and I will probably continue buying only this scent from blackbird for as long as they make it!

Cozy Up

Usually my nose likes the fresher smells but this winter, I have been LOVING the warmth of this scent. My friend is a shop owner here in Pittsburgh and she can not keep it in stock. For me, this has been my go-to scent for those days where the Pittsburgh streets are covered in snow and I need a little heat running through my body. I like to light this and cozy up on my couch with a cup of tea after a long day.

A religious experience.

I have a confession to make- I am a Catholic, and I burned Blood Countess in my home during advent season. Every night I lit a pyre during my prayers. I used the glorious, rich fragrance to symbolize my love floating up to the heavens with the smoke. So, the name may sound vampiric, but it is a fragrance most holy.
