I'm delighted to bring to you...Delightful Incense & Much

Delightful Incense & Much

I had the pleasure of being asked to do a review for this company. Being my first time having an owner ask me to do this; I admit made me very nervous. I took me a few weeks to be able to place an order due to some health issues with my mom and myself. Amy the owner was very understanding of the situation. 

A little about Amy the owner. She has been selling incense to the public for about 6 months and tarts for 2 months. Her mom who is also a candle maker is who inspired her to get into this business. Amy has been around wax goodies since she was 11 years old and says her mom has been a good teacher. I asked her what her favorite item is that she sells and she said the crushed corn air fresheners and pink sugar is the most popular scent. She is very excited to let us all know that she now offers made to order tarts so that customers get the freshest possible scented items. Be on the lookout for new scents and tarts to be added in the very near future.

I finally was able to place my order and chose to get a small sampling of several items. I ordered an incense sampler pack which included my choice of three scents, I chose Black Cherry Bomb,
Red Hot Cinnamon, Honey Suckle, a grubby wax melt in Mixed berries, and a tart in Patchouli.

My order all packed up

I got a message 4 days after ordering telling me my order had shipped. As you can see from the picture above everything was packaged nicely, nothing was smooshed or damaged in anyway. Each incense scent was packaged in a separate sleeve, which is great so that the scents don't take on the other scents. Each tart was packaged in its own baggie as well. Everything was labeled with the scent, company name/website, and the incense was also labeled with a burn with caution sticker.

Incense sticks, burn with caution, and incense cones that were included in my order

I will admit incense are not my thing at all, but from time to time I will try them out. My love of all thing that smell good makes me want to love incense, so I gave these a shot too. I decided to light a Red Hot Cinnamon incense in my bedroom. The cinnamon smell was prominent but not overwhelming. Sadly I had to move it to my kitchen, it wasn't because the product was bad though. Like I said incense are just not my thing, but for someone who enjoys incense I think you would like these. I have since found a loving home for the rest of the incense I received, and they are being enjoyed as they should be. The stick I lit burned for a little over an hour and the scent lasted maybe 20-30 minutes after it burned out. I don't see the sampler pack I bought on the site anymore but there are packs of 20 cones for $2.00 or 20 sticks for $2.75. There are lots of scents to choose from.

Tart that was included with my order

Now let's talk tarts which are made of a Para soy blend (paraffin and soy wax). The scalloped tarts I would say are 1oz in size and sell for $1. Again you have many scents to choose from there is scents ranging from earthy/woodsy, bakery/food, fruity, clean, to dupes of popular brands. Amy includes extras in each package and I had several extras in my package. I'm not sure how many extras are normally included in customers packages, I'm not sure if more were included in my order due to me agreeing to do a review. Either way I appreciate any company who gives extras, who doesn't right? Well the first scent I threw in my tart burner was mixed berries. The tart melted very nicely and was VERY highly scented, maybe too scented(is that possible? lol). It was an ok scent for me, but my girls loved it so we moved that tart warmer to their room. The next scent I tried out was Blue Sugar, which is a scent I have never tried before. Again it melted down nicely, and was HIGHLY scented, it scented my entire 2 bedroom apartment and people could smell it in our parking lot out front. I will be honest I hated this scent the first time it melted it. My mom loved it so I decided to give it another shot the next day. I put a new tealight in the burner the next morning and within 15 minutes again the entire apartment was filled with scent, it wasn't so bad this time. I ended up using that same 1oz tart for 4 days around the clock before the scent was light enough to put in my bedroom for another 2 days. Yes I burned this same tart for 6 days!!! I think it is obvious that I ended up falling in love with the scent. Next was Patchouli I would say it is an ok scent but it just didn't smell like true patchouli to me or a friend who wears patchouli oil almost daily. My mom snagged coconut cream from me and because of her moving hasn't had a chance to use it yet. Last night I put Banana Nut Bread in the warmer, it came in the shape of a cute tiny loaf. I'm not sure the weight of it but I had to break it in half so I would say it is between 1.5 and 2oz. I was very surprised with the scent as it started melting. In the package it has a strong banana scent but as it starts to melt you can pick up on other notes, I could almost swear there is a coffee note in there. Very nice highly scented and made me wish for fall to get here so I can start baking again. 

Overall I am happy with Delightful Incense & Much. Their website has a very homey comfortable feel to it and is super easy to navigate. My order shipped quickly and was packaged very nicely and nothing damaged. Their packaging is very simple and labeled with scent, company website, and a burn with caution on incense. Prices are very reasonable, a nice variety in scent choices, and I like that they also carry tart warmers. Would I buy again? Yep I sure would and actually have a few tart scents on my list to try like creamy nutmeg, vanilla waffle cone, eggnog, lemon bundt cake, sweet potato pie, spiced orange. Ok so maybe I have more than a few to try on my list haha.

I was contacted by the owner to consider doing a review, I made an order and paid for it with my own money. Even though extras were included in my order it in no way influenced my opinions of this company.

Peace, Love and Cupcakes


  1. The tarts sound really good. I would've snagged coconut cream too. lol I'm not crazy about incense either. Banana nut bread sounds good too and we love coffee scents so that would be right up our alley. Thanks for the review cuppycake! I'll have to check this company out. I love smelly good stuff!

  2. I really liked the Banana Nut Bread it was that familiar homey scent with a little twist. I love coffee scents too, weird though I don't drink coffee.

  3. I really love everything that Delightful Incense has to offer. I always order her Pink Sugar air fresheners and they last forever. I have one of her punched tin warmers, now my favorite. Love her tarts, they last forever and ever. Her TAT is crazy, I had my order in three days from the day I ordered it and her CS is one that you can't find many places. I have ordered from her many times and will keep on ordering. She is fairly new to the tart world, but please don't be afraid to give her a try. Peggy Baker

  4. Thank you, Christie for the outstanding reveiw. You really did a good job. I hope you enjoyed the goodies that i had to offer.

  5. @Peggy thanks for taking the time to read my post. I also liked the tarts and I agree they do last a long time

    @Delightful Incense you're welcome, and thank you again for being so patient with me taking so long to get this review done.
