There’s many different scents that have been created over the years. From the traditional sandalwood all the way to the highly prized agarwood. There’s many kinds of materials that can and are used for incenses. As it is known that lighting an incense brings therapeutic and calming effects to the person. It’s no wonder why we are so attracted to it
Before that, understanding how incense works is pretty important as it’s not just merely burning a material and expecting the same results. Incense is usually made up of a number of oils and sap or better known as resin. A resin, frankincense, is used in incense and the resin was found to cause a similar response to an antidepressant. The complex resin was found to activate receptors associated with a feeling of warmth. Now, that’s pretty interesting seeing how compounds in incense can be so comforting.
The ongoing collaboration between the London-based incense maker Cremate and new age Italian knitwear label VITELLI latest reveal is a rather comforting release. The latest release is featuring what the two company does best, specially-created scent like “Cosmic Youth” and comforting crochet-knitted hats.
The featured scent takes inspirations from the sun kissed bushes found in the Mediterranean scrub, called “Cosmic Crop”. Moreover, notes of eucalyptus, citrus and hemp are found in the incense cones. Which comes packaged in upcycled tobacco tins. Not only that, a specially designed burner is also created specifically for the cone incense. To top that off, it is hand-crafted in Milan. A fancy burner with that irregular designing but personalized touch.
The crochet-knitted hats come in two different styles and are also handmade in Italy. The crochet are also similarly made with upcycled and deadstock yarns. The two styles, a frontino hat features an asymmetric peak and the Codino with a ponytail design.
