Ideas for where to place incense

by Nippon Kodo
Selecting the fragrance and type of incense can depend on the placement of the incense. Burn time may also be selected based on the purpose of the room the incense is placed in. Take a look at a few of our fragrance/placement ideas to help you create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere in your home.


Entrance – If you want to place incense at your entrance near the door, we recommend the coil type and choosing a woody soft fragrance welcoming guests in.
