Mysore Sugandhi Dhoop Factory Lobhan

Lobhan is benzoin resin but Lobhan Agarbatti from Mysore Sugandhi Dhoop Factory doesn’t have that characteristic vanillic smell to my nose. Oddly it’s a bit acrid up close, but as it wafts around it teeters on the edge of likeability with a resinous-floral element I can barely make out at the edges of my perception. Strange. I’m going to have to smell more of the lobhan class to try and understand this perplexing incense a little better.
