MAAPS is a collection of incense handmade in Los Angeles using premium quality bamboo sticks, organic essential oils and natural resins. Each fragrance is carefully crafted and tested for balance, complexity and strength. Most lesser expensive incenses are created with chemicals that aim to artificially recreate natural scents. As much as possible, we are using extracts from the actual source of the natural scent. These extracts and essential oils can cost hundreds of dollars per fluid ounce. Burn time per stick is about 45 minutes.
