How have I not already reviewed this masterpiece?
Mmm where do I begin.
For the record; I am not a coffee drinker, I hate the stuff sadly. I really wish I could be one of those trendy coffee drinkers ordering their fancy coffees but no. I’ll stick to my tea thank you very much.
I do however enjoy the smell of coffee. Or to be more precise I love the smell of a good coffee shop. Those rich aromas just invite me in; only for reality to come crashing down around me when I remember I can’t drink the stuff.
Anyway back to incense.
I actually picked up this pack of Kuumba quite late into my Kuumba collecting. I wish I had picked it up sooner to be honest. What first caught my eye was the lovely brown with green text detailing, it really caught my eye. It just looked good from the word go and I needed to see if it would live up to the expectations.
The scent. Oh its nice, its REAL nice. This pack of incense has such a presence about it. If you shut your eyes you would think your nestled at the back of a coffee shop on a comfy sofa, lively chatter all around you and coffee lovers sipping their hot beverages of all flavors and strengths.
That’s what I love about this pack, it doesn't smell specifically of a cup of coffee. No it offers far more than that. Its slightly musky, with hints of nut and it all just oozes together into this beautiful concoction. The smoke swirls around and you almost find your nose following it like in the early cartoons where a freshly baked pie sitting on a window seal morphs into a hand formed from the scent coming off of it and invites the cartoon character over to feast on it. This incense has the same effect on me; just I don't end up eating the incense of course. That would be gross.
Starbucks has earnt its place in my Top 10 with ease. I find myself nodding my head with satisfaction throughout the burn. Just think; If I can’t stand coffee and I rave about Starbucks this much just think how much you might enjoy this if you were a coffee drinker?
What are you waiting for? Order a pack now, never look back.
Scent: Slightly musky, nutty, smooth.
