6 experiences in distinguishing real agarwood incense

To be able to immerse yourself in the most exquisite moments of enjoying agarwood, you should distinguish how to choose the right one.

Color recognition

Made from 100% agarwood pulp and natural binders, real incense will have a dark brown color due to the abundant amount of essential oils in agarwood. In fact, the more essential oils agarwood incense has, the darker the brown color; the brown-colored type will have less essential oils.

The color of fake incense will be an artificial bright yellow. Experts must be so familiar with the properties of agarwood that by looking at them with the naked eye, they can recognize the difference in which type of incense does not contain agarwood essential oil.

Fragrance from incense

There is a saying, “Calamity is man’s true touchstone”, and the same goes for real agarwood incense. When burned, it will carry a gentle, sweet, warm, and light scent. On the contrary, the smell of fake incense will have a burning smell of chemical ingredients and is extremely difficult to smell.

Real incense often has a gentle scent, giving people a feeling of relaxation. However, the smell of fake ones will have a strong smell and also create a headache due to the ingredients possibly from sugarcane bagasse mixed with toxic saw powder.

Incense smoke when burned

The smoke of real incense sticks, when burned, will waft gently, floating in the air like a magical cloud. The burning time of it is also slower than that of fake ones.

In contrast to the comfort that real incense brings, the smoke from fake ones will be denser, causing discomfort, stinging eyes, and itchy noses for users. In particular, they are very sensitive for people with sinusitis.

Ashes of agarwood incense

Real incense with completely natural ingredients and not mixed with any impurities to shape the incense sticks. Therefore, when burned, it will fall into ashes, on the contrary, the ashes of fake incense will create beautiful curves due to the amount of chemicals.

Price of incense

“You get what you pay for” is an accurate saying with incense more than anything. Price is the most honest assessment of the quality of real and fake incense. In general, the price of real incense ranges from 70,000 VND – 140,000 VND for a box of about 50-100 sticks of incense.

It is not natural that agarwood is considered a “pleasure” of the upper class because real agarwood incense will have a quite high price compared to regular incense. If the price is too cheap, it is very likely that it is fake incense.
