Monreale incense sticks are a spicy vanillin scent named after a 12th century Sicilian basilica, brimming to the top with 24 carat gold mosaics fusing the best of Arabic & Byzantine styles. Styrax Benzoin, with its sweet-spiced vanilla scent comprises the heart of this uplifting incense. Deep resinous undertones of invigorating amber add depth to this woody, yet sublimely creamy fragrance of Monreale natural incense sticks.
Each pure herbal incense stick is 10cm long and burns for around 18 minutes.
Traditional, high grade incense sticks are made using 100% aromatic plant components (herbs, spices, aromatic barks, seeds and saps), bound with water.
Incense sticks are free from: a bamboo core, charcoal, essential oils, synthetic perfumes or ingredients.
