Holy Land & Nectar back in stock

Essence of the Ages has the classic Tibetan Medical College scents back in stock (I think this is at least the second restock since they started selling these scents – they go fast), as well as the new range of Mother’s champas and a whole new range of Direct Help Foundation scents with new boxes.

    Thanks Mike!

    Feeling uninspired having tried a few low cost Tibetan incenses several years ago, I was reluctant to try another. However, based on all the positives here at ORS, thought I’d try again and satisfy my curiosity.

    Just received this Holy Land today and am stunned…Wish I knew what was in it because it is among the most calming incenses imaginable. The aroma is truly unique, but this is one incense where that aspect takes a backseat to how it makes you feel! Almost as good as an hour long massage!!

    Holy Land = Major stress relief

      Michael, I completely agree about its unusual stress relieving properties. It’s an incense high on juju for sure.

        “Holy Land = Major stress relief” It’s ethereal alright.

        “It’s an incense high on juju for sure.” You’ve got my full and utter agreement.

        I’m now setup with more than just a sample stick so I’ve been able to ignite a whole one and sit back and let it do its stuff knowing I can afford to burn the whole lot in a single sitting. Am I on cloud 9? You betcha 🙂

        I’m disappointed you can’t move Kyoto around, Glenn. 😉

    BTW that 40% off deal on the Nu Essence resins looks to be quite the steal as well, most of those are great (and it reminds me that there’s probably quite a few we still need to give reviews to).

    Woot, woot! Just ordered a few boxes, they’re really gorgeous, and they sold out so fast last time! Thanks for the heads-up.

      Thanks for the alert Mike. I’ll soon be halfway setup to join you on that desert island you spoke about once. I just have remember the name of the other incense you said you’d be happy to be marooned with 🙂

        Heh, Glenn. My guess is that list has probably grown a bit larger since the last time I might have said something about a desert island. 🙂

          Was just the two incenses you mentioned back in your 2008 comment, Tibetan Medical College Holy Land and Shoyeido Ga-Ho. Don’t ask me how I found that comment either. Sometimes I’ve been reading bits and pieces here and I suddenly find what I think I have no chance of finding appearing right before my eyes 🙂

            Oh yeah, the pre-Yamadamatsu days 🙂 I think now it’s not incenses I want on a desert island, it’s incense companies!

              Please consider Awaji Island… You’d have to take your own stock of the YMs plus disconnect the Kobe Awaki Naruto Expressway at the northern and southern ends of the island. Hardest part would be convincing the island population and the many incense producing companies to leave behind their incenses, I know if I was being made to quickly vacate here and had the chance to grab only a few things I think the incenses I have got together would be up there with the photo albums and the computer.

                I’m not sure Awaji counts as a desert island, and besides, moving Kyoto south would probably take some work. 😀
