8 Best Modern Incense Burners

A lot of people have strong opinions on the Incense vs. Candles front, but the lack of modern incense burners isn’t doing ‘Team Incense’ any favors.  It just so happens that collecting candles can quickly become an exuberant habit, so I like to buy incense as an alternative way to change the atmosphere of a room.  I also find that the aroma of incense lingers long after it stops burning, as opposed to the scent of a candle which dissipates once blown out.

Though traditionally ceremonial, incense can bring to mind that one hippie aunt we all have and a vibe-of-the-past we don’t necessarily want to emulate in our homes.  Once I began to look, I realized there are a ton of modern incense burners to go with any contemporary home.
