The Brexit effect - Price changes:
If you lovely people didn't already know, we import nearly all our products directly ourselves and no matter what your stance on Brexit is, the pound is weak at the moment and this, combined with price increases in some of our supplier countries, means that we are forced to increase some, but by no means all, of our prices. We have kept the increases as low as possible. However, please note the new prices will come into effect at the start of February. If you want to order anything before then you might save yourself a few bob!
Discover Incense Subscription
We are now pleased to offer a Discover Incense Subscription, a lovingly curated selection box containing at least three packets of incredible incense, a special gift and a carefully composed Lokta paper sheet of notes and information about your incense. Boxes will be delivered free of charge directly to your door each month.
We've got some lovely new people working at our warehouse! Please give them a big hello and warm welcome if you speak to them: Andy, Daisy and Tony. Hi!
