When I was ordering a few of Natural line incenses, I threw in Satya Supreme Vanilla just to see what it was like. Vanillin, which is the primary chemical that makes vanilla smell like vanilla, is pretty cheap so I thought there was a good chance that this incense would be ok despite the low price point. Spoiler: I was wrong!
The Supreme line that Satya puts out is cheaper than the already very inexpensive Natural line (of which Chandan and Lavender are ok, but Jasmine is not). Mysteriously named Supreme Vanilla, this is an oddly cardboard-y and powdery floral-ish flop that is blessedly weak. I let it burn for a good five minutes before I couldn’t stand it any longer and put it out. It’s like a bad aftertaste in stick form… unpleasant and bland at the same time. There is no vanilla in this to my nose. Again, it is a vague mash up of faded floral notes and dusty cardboard that manages to be distinctly repellent. Oh well.
