*** Blend description ***
The Black Cat contains an assortment of rich and alluring ingredients. The base is a deep and creamy blend of precious woods and mysterious Namibian myrrhs, with evocative mid-notes of antique civet and amber, finishing with the untamed nature of black current and sweet cistus.
The Black Cat is best experienced on an electric incense heater such as the legendary Golden Lotus heater. We have found that we enjoy this most when used at a lower temperature, allowing the aroma to develop slowly over time. Later on, we often then raise the heat level to release the heavier molecules. For traditional settings, place the incense directly on the red hot coal. Alternatively, you may allow the coal form a thin layer of ash over its surface, creating a thin barrier between the incense and the coal. While this is not necessary, it allows for the subtle and delicate notes to emerge with less charing resin.
