These Panchavati Dhoop sticks are made by the Bharat Industrial Corporation (BIC) of Bangalore (the incense capital of India) using - to quote what it says on the box - "famous Herbs, Resinoids, Sandalwood, and other best-quality Indian perfumes".
That doesn't really tell you what they smell like, so I'd describe their fragrance as a very potent Musky Lotus, with overtones of Red Sandalwood.
Dhoop sticks are solid sticks of incense, without the central bamboo or wooden core, so they offer a purer fragrance than normal incense sticks.

The findings have revealed that perfumes simulate memories, calm nerves and even heal our bodies.
