Our Honey & Tobacco incense has top notes of sweet honey. At the heart there is a blend of cinnamon & nutmeg, while the base note contains amber, patchouli and musk to complete the profile.
Igi [ig-ee] means tree but when joined with the word Àwò [Ah-woh] it can be used to refer to the colour brown in Yoruba.
Our incense is hand-dipped in London and placed into recyclable Kraft envelopes with our signature Oré mi label on the outside of the packaging.
Our incense consists of x10 sticks and each stick burns for up to 35-40 minutes.
When I was younger, my dad would bring my siblings and I pure dark honey from his trips home to Nigeria. I was mesmerised by it – its rich, dark colour, its sweetness – and I wanted to make a candle that would represent that wonder.
I combined the sweet, floral honey with earthy tobacco, to bring a deeper note to the profile, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, amber, patchouli and musk. I would like to think that one day my dad might keep bees on his farm in Nigeria; I need more honey!
Each time an Oré mi product is purchased 2.5% of the profits is given to a mental health charity focused on supporting black/brown people e.g. Black Minds Matter.
We use fine fragrance oils and incense made from bamboo stick & wood pulp. All of our incense is vegan friendly and cruelty free.
